Aromatherapy is the ancient art of using plant essences known as essential oils, to enhance health, vitality, relaxation and well being.
Our sense of smell is very powerful. It directly connects to our most primitive brain centre and taps into emotions and memories in a way outside our conscious thinking. For this reason, it is believed that essential oils not only have a physical effect on the body, but also on the mind and emotions.
At the Oliver Smith Clinic, we combine this healing aromatherapy with massage, so you can have a wonderful and deeply relaxing theraputic experience.
Each essential oil has its own therapeutic properties that have been studied and proven through centuries. They can be used to help with a wide range of common ailments including:
- Stress related illness e.g anxiety, fatigue, mood swings, nervous tension
- Respiratory problems e.g coughs, colds, sinus problems, asthma
- Poor immunity or chronic conditions
- Menopausal problems
- Arthritic conditions
- Digestive problems
- Headaches and migraine S
- Skin problems
- Muscular aches and pains
- Menstrual problems e.g fluid retention, cramps, PMT
Before starting your aromatherapy massage, you should discuss with your practitioner what specific health issues you’d like to address. Of course, no holistic treatment should take the place of advice or guidance from your GP, and aromatheraphy is not intended to replace medical treatment.
