What is aromatherapy massage?
Aromatherapy is a holistic wellbeing therapy that uses essential oils for therapeutic purposes, through a variety of methods of application. Aromatherapists mostly use them combined with aromatherapy massage, in which they are diluted with a carrier oil. At our practice for aromatherapy in Birmingham, aromatherapy massage is a truly relaxing experience, which if desired, can be tailored to treat many conditions clinically.
What are aromatherapy essential oils?
Essential oils are concentrations of the scent producing chemicals found in plants. Many are believed to possess a wide range of therapeutic properties, so we use an array of oils in treatments at our practice for aromatherapy in Birmingham. Essential oils can also be vaporised for inhalation, a few drops can put in a bath (some types of oil only), and they can be used in poultices, creams etc.
Where do essential oils come from?
Aromatherapy essential oils can be extracted from many types of plant matter including flowers, leaves, twigs, tree bark and wood, resin from trees, fruit peel and plant roots.
How are essential oils able to affect us through aromatherapy?
When used in massage at our practice for aromatherapy in Birmingham, small amounts of essential oils are mixed with a much larger amount of massage oil (e.g. sweet almond or grapeseed oil), then applied to the skin through a variety of relaxing and therapeutic, aromatherapy massage techniques. The molecules of the essential oils are so small that they can pass through the skin into the blood stream, then they go on to affect the body systems in many ways.
A second and very important way in which aromatherapy essential oils can affect us is through our sense of smell (olfaction). Scent molecules enter the nose and connect with nerve endings that send messages to the brain. These are interpreted and trigger the release of a variety of mood affecting chemicals from the brain.
What are the therapeutic properties of essential oils?
Aromatherapy essential oils are believed to have a wide variety of properties that can affect us both physically and emotionally. Each type of essential oil has its own specific properties, so the aromatherapists at our practice for aromatherapy in Birmingham can blend different oils to cater for the individual requirements of the client in their aromatherapy treatment.
