Aromatherapy is a form of complementary therapy which uses essential oils for the treatment and prevention of disease.
What Is Aromatherapy?
The soothing combination of beautiful aromas and massage work together to regulate, balance, heal and maintain your entire being.
Essential oils consist of tiny aromatic molecules that are readily absorbed via the skin and, whilst breathing, they enter the lungs and bloodstream to be carried around the body. The aroma therapist takes into account a person’s medical history, emotional condition, general health and lifestyle before planning a course of treatment.
What Can It Treat?
Aromatherapy offers a wide range of highly effective treatments for both acute and chronic stages of illness and disease. However, aromatherapy can also be used regularly to strengthen the immune system, thereby establishing a preventative approach to overall health.
Backache, irritable bowel syndrome or headaches, for example, are often the result of stress and not actually a physical problem. By looking at the causes of the stress and providing treatments to ease and manage it, the aromatherapist will be able to alleviate the condition.
