Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is included under Wellness

Aromatherapy is an alternative therapeutic treatment that uses aromatic plant materials (commonly known as essential oils) to help improve a person’s psychological and physical wellbeing.

In a consultation, your Aromatherapist will create a blend of essential oils specifically for you and your condition, and instruct you on how to best use them.

Aromatherapy can help alleviate discomfort caused by headaches, insomnia and stress. It is generally used in conjunction with traditional health care treatments.

You might need Aromatherapy if you...

  • Are having trouble sleeping
  • Are interested in an alternative approach to healing
  • Get bad headaches
  • Suffer from body aches and pains, or back pain
