Aroma Therapy and Massage
AROMA therapy is an art and science and uses an extract of plant life. AROMA therapy is a truly holistic healing therapy as it heals the Soul, Mind and the Body. Oil from flowers, leaves, bark etc, is taken out and can be used to derive many good and amazing results.
The fragrance of the Aroma can be inhaled, which in turn is absorbed by a particular portion in the nose, which influences the brain. Aroma also enters the blood stream on inhalation, through the lungs and diseases get cured. Very rarely, natural and pure aroma oils can be consumed orally, under strict observation.
The Aroma, that is, essential oil is mixed in a particular proportion with carrier oil which is highly penetrative, enters the cellular level of the skin and flesh and gives therapeutic effect. Massaging on the body stimulates the blood flow at cellular level and enhances the health of the skin and the problematic area. The body massaging is highly refreshing and toning, as energy blocks on meridians are also cleared along with other benefits.
Some of the Aroma oils that are commonly used are Basil, Bay, Bergamot, Eucalyptus, Fennel, Frankincense, Geranium, Juniper, Lavender, Lemon, Lemon Grass, Neroli, Orange, Peppermint, Pine, Rose, TeaTree, Thyme, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, etc,.
