Aromatherapy is usually applied through the form of massage, but can also be administered in a number of other ways (such as inhalation, compress, home remedies like creams and lotions) depending on your individual case and needs.
Many researchers have shown that when they are applied to the skin or inhaled, essential oils are absorbed into the bloodstream and metabolised in the body. By enabling deep relaxation, essential oils can indirectly boost the immune system.
An aromatherapy massage has the advantage of being tailored to suit the individual’s needs as everyone is different. Therefore, your therapist will recommend a custom blend just for you.
Your therapist may recommend some home care such as specially blended essential oils to use in a bath or as an inhalation, or a handmade aromatherapy cream. These are tailored to the client’s individual needs and therefore part of the treatment. The creams are made from the highest quality base ingredients and are not for sale to the general public and therefore require a full consultation.
At Back in Action, we consider each person as an individual and therefore Alison will take time to tailor your treatment to your individual needs. The essential oils are selected specifically with you in mind.
The benefits of Aromatherapy:
The benefits of using essential oils are as varied as the oils themselves. Also, one of the advantages of aromatherapy is that it can be tailored to address your specific needs.
Essential oils can be useful for people of all ages to optimise well-being. The oils can have a relaxing, soothing, comforting or even uplifting nature when blended correctly by a registered aromatherapist. Some essential oils are warming, stimulating and reviving and paired with massage, they can therefore support a healthy body.
Although, the natural essential oils are less toxic than synthetic antibiotics, they are not a substitute for orthodox medicine.
