The Healing Effects of Pure Essential Oils on Physical and Psychological Wellbeing with Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy treatments have been practised for more than 6000 years. They involve the use of pure essential oils (fragrant plant extracts), usually through massage, inhalation, baths or compresses. In an aromatherapy massage, individual blends are prepared by the masseuse in a base of cold pressed oil, then applied to the patient’s skin through a remedial, or relaxing massage.
As a holistic treatment, aromatherapy can have a profound effect on physical and psychological wellbeing. There is a belief that scent, the most enduring of our senses, has the power to transform our emotions and heal our body. Each individual oil also has different healing properties. The synergy of a blend of oils is more powerful than a single aromatherapy oil on its own.
Janene uses aromatherapy as part of her holistic approach. She may apply oils directly during massage. More commonly, she adds oils to boiling water to infuse the air. Clients inhale this while relaxing on the massage table.
