Clinical Aromatherapy has been defined as the art and science of applying essential oils therapeutically for the express purpose of healing. Not simply a relaxation or de-stressing technique, it can be used to treat a wide range of physical and emotional problems. Robust research has confirmed its effectiveness.
Appropriately chosen and applied to the skin during a gentle massage, essential oils can have profound physical and psychological benefits. They can:
- be especially effective in pain relief for muscular aches and pains, headaches, menstrual cramps, etc
- ease joint inflammation
- help with eczema
- ease PMT and menopausal problems
- soothe coughs and colds
- relieve symptoms of many stress-related problems, including insomnia, depression and anxiety
- reduce fatigue and nausea
- alleviate side effects of chemotherapy
