Aromatherapy is an excellent preventative treatment as it helps to relieve stress and related conditions. It stimulates natural immune body mechanisms, and particular oils have an affinity with certain systems of the body, helping to alleviate respiratory, digestive, circulatory or hormonal problems and maintain health and beauty.
Aromatherapy is the art and science of using natural botanical oils such as rose, lavender, orange, and peppermint to enhance psychological and physical well being. These essential oils can be added to a bath, massaged through the skin, inhaled directly, used with teas, or scented in a room. This therapy is intended to relieve pain, care for the skin, alleviate tension and fatigue, and promote health and wellness.
The therapeutic effects of essential oils vary. Some oils are stimulating, while others are relaxing. Many oils are antiseptic, antibacterial, and antifungal, such as Tea Tree, and help to enhance the protective function of the skin. Certain oils can calm and soothe the skin and others, such as lavender, help the skin cells regenerate. With Aromatherapy Massage, the emphasis is on smooth, flowing movements designed to assist in lymphatic drainage. It increases the nourishment and oxygen to the tissues easing muscular aches and pains, and helping with fatigue.
Essential oils are powerful, and should be used with care. They must always be diluted in a suitable carrier oil for massage, or diluted with water for baths and vaporization. Further, some oils are contraindicated for certain health problems. For this reason, consultation with a qualified Aromatherapist should be obtained before use of these oils. Your Inside Out Wellness Centre Aromatherapist will use only the purest and highest quality grade oils. Special blends of essentials for well being can also be created for take-home application.
