"A cheerful heart is a good medicine" - Proverbs 17:22
This is a style of massage that uses the medium of essential oils taken from plants or flowers. Modern Aromatherapy developed from the 1920s by a French chemist by the name of Gattefosse. He made the discovery that essential oils can be absorbed through the skin and reach the body's organs via the circulatory system.
The essential oils can effect 2 ways - through the circulatory system or through inhalation. Since smell has a direct link to the brain and memory, the smell can sedate you or stimulate you. This can give a more powerful and immediate effect to your treatment.
Potential effects are:
A deeper sense of relaxation
Improvement of circulation
Bolster a relaxation/existing therapy program for various emotional problems
Relief from stress or tension
For these reasons above, it can be incorporated with other treatments to aid in the treatment of:
Muscle fatigue and stiffness including joint problems
Depression, anxiety and stress and associated physical symptoms
Tension and tension related problems i.e. tension headaches, migraines.
Digestive problems i.e. constipation
