Aromatherapy is a method of therapy that uses all natural plant materials and aromatic plant oils, including essential oils, and other aroma compounds for improving psychological or physical well-being. These natural oils are extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant. The inhaled aroma from various types of essential oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function.
How It Works
In Aromatherapy you are essentially exposing your senses to natural chemicals that can positively affect hormone production in your body, hormones that trigger positive brain chemistry and help to stabilize the nerves that affect stress levels in your body. The practice of aromatherapy is provided by an experienced aromatherapists that utilize both your sense of touch and smell to optimize the effective of your treatment session.
The aromatherapist will use warm massage oils and essential oils in a hot bath to allow the oils to saturate into your skin and therefore, loosen your blood flow and improve circulation throughout your entire body. In addition to this, a massage will follow to strengthen the effect of this stress relieving method. Using the sense of smell, a variety of scented natural oils are diffused into the air to relieve stress by inhaling it and allowing it to appeal to your senses thus, increasing the effectiveness of reducing anxiety levels. The scented oils should be appealing to you, some of the more popular scents are: lemon, lavender, rose, peppermint, mandarin, and sage.
