What is Aromatherapy? The ancient art of Aromatherapy has been with us for 20,000 yrs. According to cave paintings in France dated C. 18,000 B.C. plants were used for medicinal purposes. Since these early times essential oils have continued to be used by successive civilizations including the Ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians, until today when they have become a recognised source of natural healing. Aromatherapy is the ancient practice of using essential oils to promote health and well-being. Whether you want to feel special, re-energised, relaxed; or wish to improve your well-being; essential oils can provide the key. Essential oils are substances extracted from various parts of the plant often by distillation. They are sometimes referred to as the ‘Life Force’ of the plant. They are neither greasy nor fatty and are readily absorbed into the blood stream. Each oil is highly concentrated so only a few drops are needed to be effective. Aromatherapy can be effective in the treatment of: > Stress > Insomnia > Anxiety and Tension > Overwork and Fatigue > Depression > Insecurity and Panic Attacks > Nervous Exhaustion > Menopausal Problems > Muscular Aches and Pains > Rheumatism and Arthritis > Therapeutic for MS and ME > Overcoming Addiction > Lack of confidence > Skin Disorders Aromatherapy Treatments The pure essential oils are blended together to reflect the needs of the individual. These are then applied during the massage treatment, which is deeply relaxing, effective and suitable for all ages. As well as being used to treat specific ailments, the smell of essential oils can affect your mental state; this is because there are receptors in the nasal passages that trace directly to the emotional centre of the brain. Your first visit will be slightly longer than subsequent treatments because it includes an assessment. As Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy all aspects of your lifestyle will be taken in to account, including such things as diet and general medical history. The oils will be selected and blended for you followed by a full body massage. Many people have a feeling of well-being and relaxation after a treatment, which in itself can be a great benefit and reduces stress and tension. The number of further treatments will vary according to each individual’s needs, how long a particular condition has lasted and how quickly the body is able to respond. So this is something that will be discussed during the consultation.
