To reach the individual we need an individual remedy. Each of us is a unique message. It is only the unique remedy that will suffice. We must, therefore, seek odiferous substances which present affinities with the human being we intend to treat, those which will compensate for his deficiencies and those which will make his faculties blossom.Marguerite Maury, The Secrets of Life and Youth
What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the enhancement of body, mind and spirit through the use of essential oils. In addition to being an aromatic delight to the senses, essential oils are complex, chemical components. It is these very complex chemical components which impart to the essential oil its unique therapeutic qualities. Essential oils have long been used to influence and restore balance to body, mind and spirit. A true gift of Nature in a little bottle.
Aromatherapy is beneficial and effective in the treatment of many conditions both physical and emotional including Stress and Stress-Related Conditions; Depression; Insomnia; Headaches, Migraine; Muscular Aches & Pains; Colds & Flu; Circulatory Problems; Digestive Problems; Menstrual Problems, PMS and Menopause.
The Aromatherapy Consultation.
It is during the consultation period that the aromatherapist will gather the background information. This information will allow them to take into account everything that is relevant physically, emotionally and spiritually at that moment in time and to create a unique custom blend for the individual that addresses the needs of the individual client’s body, mind and spirit. The resulting blend may then be added to a variety of products to be used at home, or it may be added to a blend of carrier oils and applied topically to the client in the form of bodywork. Some clients will want to take advantage of both possibilities.
The Aromatherapy Treatment.
The treatment areas are relaxing, nurturing, comforting and safe environments. The aromatherapist will leave the client in the treatment room to undress. Once the client has undressed and lain down, draped appropriately, on the treatment table, the aromatherapist will return to the room. The aromatherapist will then proceed to apply the essential oil massage blend caringly and skilfully in a full body massage. At the end of the treatment, the aromatherapist will leave the room so that the client can get dressed. They will, however, return to the room and be available for any discussion or feedback.
