Aromatherapy For Health

By Lyndell Jane - Aromatherapist

Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment that uses natural plant extracts (essential oils) to promote health and well-being. This is also called essential oil therapy. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It enhances both physical and emotional health.
The massage involves alternating between gentle and firm pressure while using a specific blend of essential oils tailored specifically for you and your body’s needs.
What’s the difference between an aromatherapy massage and a regular therapeutic massage?

An aromatherapy massage includes all the benefits of a regular massage, (improved circulation, lymph drainage etc) with the added benefit of a blend of essential oils tailored to your specific needs.

Massages are typically 30 to 120 minutes long. I recommend at least one hour, if not more. A longer massage releases more of the toxins and tension built up in your muscles and throughout your body. For example, a full body treatment usually takes me 90 minutes on average.

Aromatherapy is commonly used to treat a wide variety of mental and physical problems from stress and anxiety, to headaches and digestive issues. The essential oils used in this practice trigger messages to be sent to your brain's limbic system, which controls your emotions, memory and how we learn.
