What is aromatherapy? Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment which uses essential oils that have been extracted from plants. These oils possess therapeutic properties which can help to improve a person’s health and prevent disease.
There are multiple ways in which these natural oils can be used, such as in baths, during massages, or through inhalation. Popular oils include chamomile, lemon, lavender, rosemary, peppermint, and tea tree.
Your aromatherapist will question you about your medical history, health, and lifestyle and select the most appropriate essential oils for you. These will be applied in combination with massage. A session will last around 60 to 90 minutes, and cost between £20 to £40.
What is the purpose of aromatherapy? The basic principle of aromatherapy is to strengthen the self-healing process by indirect stimulation of the immune system. Smelling certain oils is thought to have an effect on mood, alleviate fatigue, reduce anxiety and promote relaxation.
What are the benefits of aromatherapy? Aromatherapy is used to relieve pain, take care of the skin, alleviate tension and fatigue, and invigorate the entire body. It is considered to be a particularly effective treatment for stress-related problems.
The effects of aromatherapy tend to vary from person to person, and no two people will be affected by the same essential oil in exactly the same way. Even the same person can be affected differently by the same oil depending on their surroundings, time of day or mood.
