Many people mistakenly think of aromatherapy as some kind of ‘beauty’ treatment, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Aromatherapy is recognised by many health professionals and practiced in hospitals, GP’s surgeries and hospices all over this country. GP’s have been referring patients to complementary therapists since 1992. Quite simply they know that aromatherapy works. Aromatherapists today are trained to a very high standard and have passed exams in all their subjects including human anatomy and physiology.
Aromatherapy combines the use of essential oils and therapeutic massage. The oils, which come from plants, are highly concentrated and very powerful.
Essential oils possess natural healing properties – without harmful side-effects. Aromatherapy is helpful for many health conditions, but there are a couple of areas where it excels:
Stress. We all know that some stress is good for us. But when the balance is tipped, stress can very quickly take hold and start to affect us adversely.
Some people will present to an Aromatherapist with stress, whilst others will present with the physical complaints that arise from it; ie. disturbed sleep, anxiety, mood swings, skin rashes, headaches, fatigue etc.
A compromised immune system may mean that they are ‘picking up’ all sorts of colds and infections. Essential oils exert a subtle influence on the mind and combined with massage and the care of a good therapist, they offer a truly holistic, gentle and natural way of achieving balance in your life.
Aromatherapy is very effective for the relief of the following conditions: depression and nervous tension, fatigue (including chronic) and ME, menstrual problems, pregnancy and the menopause, poor circulation, high blood pressure, respiratory conditions including asthma and sinusitis, rheumatism, arthritis and joint mobility, skin conditions.
Some of the health benefits of aromatherapy include its ability to reduce anxiety, ease depression, boost energy levels, speed up the healing process, eliminate headaches, boost cognitive performance, induce sleep, strengthen the immune system, reduce pain, improve digestion, and increase circulation
