Aromatheraphy massage goes back more than 6000 years and involves the use of pure essential oil. This essential oil(or essence) is the most ethereal part of the plant, and its therapeutic action takes place on a very high subtle level and has a very pronounced effect on the mind and emotions. In an aromatherapy massage I prepare a synergistic harmonious blend of essential oils( mixed in a base of organic comfrey cream), which are tailored to not only your physical symptoms, but also to your emotional and psychological make up. In this blend, I am careful to get a balance of top, middle and base notes, and I make sure this mix of essential oils complements each other(ie. if you suffer from headaches associated with high B.P., I would not use any oils that had any hypertensive qualities).
These aromatherapy oils work on 3 distinct levels: 1) They can have a profound effect on our emotional and psychological wellbeing--there is a strong belief that scent has the power to transform our emotions and heal our bodies. 2) They have a powerful effect on the physical body--antibacterial, antiseptic, calming nervines, stimulants, expectorants, analgesics(pain relieving), and hyper and hypotensor(help to raise and lower B.P.) 3) They can also balance' the subtle energy flows in the body(similar to acupucture).
Aromatherapy is often used to treat influenza, common colds, nausea, insomnia, skin conditions eg psoriasis, headaches and migraines and many other ailments.
