Massage > Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy as a science was only developed early last century; it came about when a French chemist, Rene-Maurice Gattefosse burnt himself one day while working in his lab. Gattefosse thrust his burnt hand into a container of neat lavender oil and gained almost instant relief. In days to follow his hand did not present with all the normal signs of a vicious burn and healed remarkably quickly leaving no scar. Gattefosse was so intrigued by this he dedicated the rest of his life to what be named “Aromatherapy”.

But long before had it benefits been identified. The Egyptians, the people of early India, the Chinese and the Greek Romans all used essential oils for health and well being dating back as early as 5000BC.

The Egyptians used essential oils to embalm people of great importance. While the people of early India built entire temples of sandlewood to ensure an aromatic atmosphere at all times. The ancient Greek Romans had much consideration for Aromatics. Hippocrates, the father of medicine said “The way to health is to have an aromatic bath and scented massage every day”. If this is true then Aromatherapy has a lot to offer conventional western medicine.

Aromatherapy works on two levels, the psychological aspect of the mind and the physical aspect of the body. It works particularly well as a prophylactic measure but is an extremely effective form of treatment for most illnesses, be it schizophrenia, to going bald to heart disease.

As a science and an art, Aromatherapy is the application of essential oils to open the body to healing through stimulating its senses. The most effective ways to use essential oils are through external application, lotions, body oils etc or through inhalation, tissue, steamed bath or oil burner etc.

Essential oils represent the soul of the plant they are extracted and are the most concentrated form of herbal energy.

Perhaps the most intriguing evidence of Aromatherapy at work is the comments of Aura Readers who have seen the benefits of essential oils in action.

The concept of the aura is not a new age phenomenon, and most people have some idea of what it is. A brief definition describes the human aura to be a living field of colourful energy that is suspended in layers around the human body. It really acts as an advertisement of a person and their energy.

Some people are gifted enough to the see the Aura with the naked eye while science has developed cameras to photograph the Auric image.

People who work with Auric Interpretation and Medical Diagnosis agree that Aromatherapy has a notable effect on a persons Auric Field, there comments suggest that Aromatherapy has true benefits in the treatment of health and general well being.
