Aromatherapy

Plants have been used for healing for thousands of years. Today we incorporate the essential oils with massage, which enables the healing properties of the plant to enter the body through the skin & help to restore the harmony of mind body and spirit.

Proper use of the oils helps promote a more balanced lifestyle and help improve both physical and emotional well-being.

An Aromatherapy blend will be mixed exclusively for you at the time of consultation.

 

 

Benefits

Mostly used for relaxation, to detox the body or increase energy levels but just some of the conditions aromatherapy is used for are:

* Headaches
* Menstrual or menopausal problems
* Water retention
* Anxiety or stress
* Insomnia
* Mild depression
* Muscular aches and pains
* Asthma
* Eczema
* Digestive problems

How does it work?
Scents from different oils can stimulate the olfactory receptors (in the nose) which then trigger signals in the brain linked to emotions and memory and relax you.

The components of the essential oil are also absorbed via the skin into the circulatory system which has medicinal properties that act on the cause of the problem.

Along with massage aromatherapy oils can be used in burners, baths, compresses or can be inhaled using steamers.
