Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement and increased cognitive function.

Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being.

For 4000 years Egyptians have known that therapeutic essential oils have healing properties which assist the body’s ability to heal and restore health. The modern term “aromatherapy” first originated in 1937 when French chemist Rene-Maurice Gattefosse invented the word after a burn incident spurred his curiosity about the healing power of essential oils. On the heels of Gattefosse’s “discovery” that lavender oil helped to cure his burn, French surgeon Jean Valnet used essential oils to help heal soldiers’ wounds in World War II, proving the medical benefits of aromatherapy.

The inhaled aroma from these “essential” oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing. Using Pure Essential Oils during your massage further enhances the healing effect of your massage.
