Aromatherapy is a complimentary therapy which is based on the use of natural essential oils extracted from herbs, flowers and trees. The oils are used in tiny amounts in massage, aromatic baths, inhalations and compresses.
Aromatherapy can treat complaints or illnesses, or even prevent them, by using essential oils such as lavender, eucalyptus and frankincense. Aromatherapy works in two major ways. The first is the way the aromas influence the brain through the sense of smell. The other way aromatherapy works is due to the effects of the essential oils directly on the body, especially when combined with a relaxing massage.
Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy which uses essential oils in treatment to bring about the body's own ability to heal itself. If the body is unbalanced by illness or disease, aromatherapy encourages the return of balance and health. It acts on the body, mind and spirit with no side effects.
Your body responds to a massage in two main ways. Firstly there's a physical effect on your body, for example, by helping reduce muscle stiffness or helping increase joint mobility. Then there are psychological benefits too, such as improving self esteem. Overall a massage helps you to relax and unwind which makes it an ideal antidote to today's stressful lifestyles.
