Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the ancient practice of diffusing distilled aromatic compounds for the purpose of altering mood and assisting psychological health through our olfactory senses. These airborne particles also act to disinfect a room because of their anti bacterial and antiseptic properties. Aroma therapy is often offered as a complementary medicine, used in addition to other treatment regimes.

It would be hard to date the use of aroma therapy in history. The ancients coveted the hygienic, therapeutic and ritualistic benefits of this practice. Aromatherapy was widely used as an antiseptic agent in hospitals for the treatment of battlefield wounds and immunological conditions last century, solidifying the use of aroma therapy by the modern medical industry.

Historically, plant based aromatic compounds have been employed as medicines since the invention of distillation in the eleventh century and their use as cosmetics, perfumes and drugs was widely accepted.

In current times, due the advent of updated methods of distillation the use of aromatic compounds has increased dramatically and in some cases replaced the use of their equivalent pharmaceutical counterparts, as in the case of Lavender being widely prescribed for relaxation as opposed to valerian based tablets.

This is because essential oils are now produced in greater volumes and variety making different grades and qualities readily available in the marketplace. Aromatic compounds can now be used for internal and topical applications.

The colonic was one of the best experience I’ve ever had. Ela was absolutely fantastic. She is very gentle and really professional. I was feeling at ease knowing I was in perfect hands at that time. Later on I was given some good advice about a liver cleanse.
