THERAPEUTIC AROMATHERAPY

Aromatherapy is the use of highly concentrated aromatic plant essences known as essential oils. "Pure, Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils" are the life force energy of the living plant materials and each one has a particular vibrational frequency. We, as humans, also have vibrational frequencies, and so these pure essential oils have a very special ability to affect us on many different levels...from a physical, cellular level to the emotional, mental and spiritual levels…and even into the aesthetic realms of our lives. They bring a natural balance and harmony to the body so healing can take place.

History shows aromatic oils being used as far back as 4000 years or more. Essential oils were widely used for healing throughout the ancient world by Egyptians, the Chinese, the Greeks and the Romans. Even the Bible records the use of plants and oils for treating illness. When you look at the history of today's pharmaceutical and drug companies you can clearly see the "original source" of their inspiration has always been Nature. So why not go back to that "original source" and bring the natural benefits of essential oils into your life through the practice of Therapeutic Aromatherapy.

Most people think of aromatherapy as a method of relieving stress and tension, or to set a mood…so they pick up an "aromatherapy candle", or grab a bottle of oil from the store. They light the candle and use the oils and end up with a headache, or some other reaction and immediately think that "aromatherapy" is not for them... .they must be allergic to the fragrance. So they come to a session with me and tell me they’re allergic or sensitive to smells and fragrances.

The problem here is that they've been exposed to perfume grade, synthetic or chemically altered scents and oils. These are not "Therapeutic Grade, Pure Essential Oils" and there's a huge difference, because not all oils are created, or should I say "produced" equally.

 

Christoph Streicher, Ph.D., has a Masters Degree in Biochemistry and a Ph.D. in Physiology. He's a member of the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) and is president of Amrita Aromatherapy. He writes:

"For an essential oil to be therapeutically useful it must be of a very high quality. This depends upon the climate and geography, where grown, who the farmer is and what farming methods he used, how the plant was harvested, and how the oil was distilled.

Many flowers like violet, gardenia, freesia, or lilac are not available as an essential oil because they are too delicate for distillation, too expensive, or spoil too easily. Artificial oils may smell surprisingly real to an untrained nose, but they are not therapeutic."

I am pleased and proud to say that the oils that I use are from Amrita Aromatherapy. This is a company that I trust and that’s a very good feeling.

In my sessions oils are carefully chosen for each individual client for their specific needs on that particular day. This can create wonderful results and benefits on many different levels, bringing a sense of balance and harmony to the session.

I look forward to creating a special aromatherapy blend just for you.
