Aromatherapy is the use of pure essential oils for therapeutic purposes.
However - touch and massage also play a large part in the healing power of Aromatherapy, creating a truly holistic therapy. This can greatly improve your physical and mental health, awakening your spirituality.
By using pure essential oils we work in harmony with nature to help you achieve
and maintain a state of equilibrium within your body and mind, helping you deal with life’s stresses and strains.
Similar to homeopathy once in the body the natural chemicals enter the blood and lymphatic system in a much diluted form and from there target the particular organs they are associated with.
The chemical composition of the essential oils gives them various healing properties such as antiseptic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory etc. Their effect on the body is gentler and less aggressive than conventional treatments, with little or no side effects.
The sense of smell also acts on a subconscious level - and this is also a very powerful tool in aromatherapy. A blend of oils is used during the treatment to produce a relaxing, healing effect on the mind and body.
It takes between 20-70 minutes for the oils to be absorbed through the skin, whilst the aroma allows some of their healing properties to quickly enter the bloodstream through the respiratory system.
