Aromatherapy is a gentle healing art using massage and scented essential oils derived from aromatic plants and trees to relieve physical and psychological discomfort and to promote health of body and serenity of mind. It is found to be most efficient when used to heal the whole person and not only a physical condition. It looks into the causes and the prevention of illness.
Health problems are looked at in the context of a person”s ”whole” life – mind, body and spirit need to be in a state of equilibrium with each other. If one aspect becomes unbalanced, it can lead to physical or emotional illness. In many cases emotional disharmony can eventually manifest as physical illness, Aromatherapy can help to redress the balance.
