WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are produced by aromatic plants as part of their photosynthesis, once produced, they are stored in specialised structures or pockets distributed according to the botanical species, in the leaves as for example in the case of mint (mentha piperita, in the rind as is the case of the citrus oils such as lemon, citrus limonum, in the petals as in essential oil of rose, rosa centifolia, in the rhizomes as in essential oil of ginger, zingiber officinale, in secretory cells located along the bark which produce a resinous secretion as in the case of essential oil of myrrh, commiphora myrrha, or distributed through more than one of these structures as is the exceptional case of bitter orange, citrus auranthium, which produces three different types of essential oils: pettigrain from the leaves, orange from the rind, and, neroli from the petals.
During your aromatherapy holistic healing session, relaxing music may be played to enhance your experience. Gently, you will be massaged with your individualized essential oil synergies through massage techniques of effleurage, petrissagem vibrations and pressure points to enhance the healing benefits of your individual blend of essential oils and nourishing carrier oils.
WHAT SHOULD ONE LOOK FOR IN AN AROMATHERAPY SESSION?
During the first session the therapist will take a detailed personal history as well as a personal medical history and family history, all of which will allow for the correct formulation and choice of essential oils and method of treatment.
The main aromatherapy methods of treatment are the following:
a) STEAM INHALATIONS
b) HOT OR COLD COMPRESSES.
c) AROMATIC BATHS
d) SPECIALISED AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE
e) VAPORIZATION OF A BLEND OF ESSENTIAL OILS
This is not traditional massage therapy. This is a much more gentle massage which enhances the penetration of your therapeutic synergy.
The end of your healing session will be unique from any touch therapy you may have experienced. And recommendations will be given to you for your home treatment and after treatment activities.
