Our practitioners use therapeutic grade oils to help you maintain health, balance and address any symptoms you may be having. Aromatherapy works on three different levels: physiologically, topically and physiologically.Book Now
It is important to understand the difference between therapeutic and commercial grade oils. Commercial grade oils are the essential oils readily available to the general public (those sold at Whole Foods, etc.). Therapeutic grade oils, on the other hand, are what healing therapists use to complement their healing modalities. Therapeutic grade essential oils can guide the body towards its own self-healing. Therapeutic grade oils are extracted from organically grown plants or harvested directly from the wild and can pass through layers of skin and cell membranes. The process is incredibly enjoyable and promotes balance in all levels of the body: mind, emotions and spirit.
Essential oils serve to regenerate, oxygenate and carry enzymes, hormones, vitamins and minerals within the plant. Oils serve similar functions in the body. Once applied to the skin, essential oils act as a stimulant, relaxant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral. Your practitioner will know which oils should be used to get your desired effect. The aroma-therapeutic essence of the oils is taken in through the note and reaches into the limbic system, where our deepest emotions reside. A person’s olfactory senses live not just in the note, but all over the skin and even deep in the organs! This causes an incredible effect. For example, Frankincense is a powerful oil known to pass through the cell membranes, allowing the midbrain’s oxygen to ride as much as 28%! Oils are also a great alternative way to treat children, elders or anyone sensitive to needles.
