Aromatherapy is a complementary therapy designed to treat the whole person and not just the symptom or disease by assisting the body’s natural ability to balance, regulate, heal and maintain itself.
Pure essences from plants are utilised to help care for common ailments whilst working alongside medical treatment in the healing process. Essential oils are highly fragrant and have powerful therapeutic properties that can enhance our well-being.
They are extracted from the flowers, leaves, twigs, bark, roots and fruits of many common plants. They have many different properties such as stimulating, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, relaxing, calming, soothing and uplifting. Aromatherapy has the ability to affect the emotions, promote inner harmony, enhance bodily wellbeing and restore a sense of balance.
Our sense of smell has a very profound effect on our everyday life. We feel enlivened and uplifted when we smell something we like. An aromatherapy massage can be incorporated into your weekly or monthly routine. Having a regular massage can make you feel wonderful and is great for cleansing the skin, relaxing muscular pain and stiffness, de-stressing the mind and body, and stimulating the blood flow.
The oils must not be used without consultation from a qualified aromatherapist.
