A Brief Guide to Aromatherapy October 23, 2019

A Brief Guide to Aromatherapy, Hackensack, New Jersey

Aromatherapy is a treatment designed to restore calm and balance to the mind and body through the use of essential oils. Different concentrates are used to produce a variety of responses. Depending on the person’s unique needs, this can be used to alleviate everything from stress to insomnia. If you’re considering adding this service to your spa package, here’s everything you should know about it.

How Aromatherapy Works

Studies find that inhaling essential oils can trigger reactions in the brain through the olfactory system, or the senses that contribute to your ability to smell. This response stimulates a signal to the hypothalamus, a portion of the brain that releases hormones.

In turn, this may release chemical substances known as neurotransmitters, which affect your mood and wellness. For example, if your body produces serotonin due to a scent, it may reduce feelings of anxiety.   

Who It Benefits the Most

aromatherapyAromatherapy can be an effective alternative medicine treatment for many people. Those who have anxiety, for example, may feel relaxed after breathing in a calming oil like lavender, lemon, or ylang-ylang.

Some oils, including eucalyptus, peppermint and CBD oils are even thought to increase energy levels in the body. People who experience headaches might find relief using peppermint.

Experienced practitioners know which essential oils to pair with specific spa services like massages to maximize relaxation and help you reap these benefits.
