Scent Therapy with Essential Oils to Soothe & Vitalize
Aromatherapy can be a stimulating modality that uses volatile liquid plant materials, known as essential oils (EO's), and other aromatic compounds from plants for the purpose of affecting a person's mood or vitality.
Scientific evidence is growing and the results are encouraging for a number of issues.
Essential oils differ in chemical composition from other herbal products because the distillation process only recovers the lighter phytomolecules.
For this reason essential oils are rich in monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes, as well as other VOC substances (esters, aromatic compounds, non-terpene hydrocarbons, some organic sulfides etc...).
Aromatherapy is a generic term that refers to any of the various traditions that make use of essential oils sometimes in combination with other practices and spiritual beliefs.
Two basic mechanisms explain the effects. One is the influence of aroma on the brain, especially the limbic system through the olfactory system.
Secondarily, EO's help us create positive linkages between our brain and our bodies.
Different scents affect parts of the brain that in turn, affect our bodies and our emotions. Different oils can calm us, reinvigorate us, even help us with weight loss and memory. Various aromas can afford you a profound sense of well-being.
Aromatherapy is a synergy between the body and aromatic oils. Combined with any of our services, the treatment is an absolute pleasure.
