Aromatherapy / Acupressure for Emotional Well-Being
Aromatherapy is an ancient healing modality based on the understanding that smell is one of the most powerful senses humans have, which has a direct line to the limbic system in the brain and impacts our mood, emotions, well-being, and even bodily functions such as breathing patterns, blood pressure, and heart rate.
Scientists working for luxury perfume companies have discovered that our sense of smell is, like vision and hearing, in fact a response to frequency, with the vibrational frequency signature of various molecular structures determining their smell, contrary to prior understanding of scents being determined by molecular shape and our noses operating on a “lock and key” system in response to certain shapes fitting into scent receptors. So just like sound and light healing modalities, aromatherapy can be thought of more accurately as a form of energy healing.
And essential oils are the most powerful form of capturing and applying this vibrational signature of various scents and the medicinal plants they derive from. As an all-natural alternative medicine, aromatherapy uses essential oils, extracted and concentrated essences from specific medically proven species of flowers, peels of plants, leaves, stems, bark, seeds, and roots, to holistically heal the body and stimulate or soothe the mind. They can be administered through inhalation, ingestion, or absorption through the skin, and have a long history of safe and effective use for various ailments.
Despite not understanding the science behind their effectiveness, essential oils have been used for both religious and medicinal purposes dating back to ancient Egypt And during World War I, when modern medicine was in its infancy, soldiers returning home were given aromatherapy not only to treat their wounds and reduce infections, but also to reduce anxiety and the PTSD from battle.
Aromatherapy is surprisingly powerful and can treat a wide variety of mental and physical problems, from alleviating pain, improving focus, improving your sense of smell, promoting restful sleep or aiding in digestion, there are essential oils that can help with the healing process.
And yet, when aromatherapy is combined with acupressure, the healing effects multiply rather than simply add together to effectively target a wide range of symptoms. Acupressure is an ancient Chinese healing therapy based on a detailed understanding of how chi/qi life force energy flows through the body in channels known as meridians. The free flow of chi/qi (life-force energy) through the body is vital to well-being and its blockage or restriction can be alleviated through applying precise pressure targeted to certain points on the body. My modality is to combine acupressure with customized essential oil blends made for each client’s particular needs and applied to the pressure points prior to the acupressure work. This has the additional effect of releasing higher levels of endorphins, which immediately relieves pain and tension while the energy begins to resume normal flow.
