Whether we are young or old, healthy and at the top of our physical state or fragile and fragile, complimentary aromatherapy and massage therapies can improve our lives and help prevent diseases. By awakening the senses of smell and touch, we can relieve tension, improve sleep, improve mood and alleviate many physical ailments. Massage and aromatherapy provide a direct reaction to a condition. Above all, they convey a sense of well-being, and research has shown that there is a close link between positive mood and good health.
The Benefits of Fragrance
Of the five senses, the sense of smell is the most direct connection to the emotional centre of the brain, and more evidence demonstrates the physiological and psychological benefits of the smell. Odours are detected for the first time in the nasal mucosa behind the bridge of the nose, which contains millions of odour receptor cells. When inhaled, the odor molecules are filtered and heated, stimulating the olfactory neurons. Then, the information moves to the limbic part of the brain, which is linked to memories, emotions, emotions and emotions.
Susan Chiffman, Department of Psychology, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina, USA UU., He found in clinical and laboratory studies that certain scents promote relaxation, reduce stress and relieve depression. others increased memory recovery, helped improve self-image and sexuality. or change sleep patterns. Clinical studies have taught patients relaxation techniques that, when completely relaxed, give off an odour smell. With repetition, the patient combines odour with relaxation and, finally, the smell can only provoke the response to relaxation. Scjiffman also claimed that certain scents such as lavender and neroli can cause relaxation without conditioning. I think your work is of particular interest to people who practice aromatherapy massages and can explain the benefits of this treatment for stress-related problems.
Feel good to stay healthy.
Studies have shown that people with high levels of stress are less resistant to disease than people with low levels of stress. 1991 at the Carnegie. Researchers from the University of Mellon in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA UU., They gave a questionnaire to 394 healthy people to assess their stress levels and expose them to the common cold virus. Almost half of those who describe their high stress got a cold, compared to only a quarter of those who said they had low levels of stress. The medical profession has long suspected that there is a close link between stress and illness. For example, high blood pressure and heart disease may be associated with stress. Even cancer, rheumatism and infertility are more common in high-stress situations.
Fortunately, the opposite is true. In another study, conducted in the USA. UU In 1987, the researchers analyzed saliva and found that the participants’ immune system was in a good mood at a higher level than in a bad mood. Because the immune system helps the body fight infections, it shows that feeling good actually has a positive effect on your ability to stay healthy. Massage with essential oils is a wonderful way to relax the mind and body, and improve the positive attitude, relieve stress, prevent diseases and improve the quality of life.
Ease the pain
Massages with or without aromatic oils are widely used in hospitals throughout Europe, including the United Kingdom, Australia and South Africa. In hospitals and at the Royal College of Nursing in London, nurses find that massage greatly helps patients by showing care and concern, promoting relaxation and reducing pain, relieving anxiety and improving quality of life. The dream. Touch and massage are forms of nonverbal communication that help nurses develop empathy and understanding for their patients.
When essential oils are used alone or in combination with massages, delicious flavours can turn a boring clinical service into space with a pleasant and perfumed atmosphere.
It is good to see how the simplest treatments, such as massages on the feet or hands, have such a profound effect and provide comfort, sympathy and comfort to the patient, the perfect complement for medicines. As one client said, “the massage really relieved my pain and its smell calmed me down and reminded me of my garden and my happiest and healthiest days, it was the decisive moment of my recovery, but it is not necessary to be sick or hospitalized”. To benefit from the therapeutic effects of massage and aromatherapy, anyone can easily benefit by improving their home, workplace or workplace with aromatic essential oils.
Heal with oils
Essential oils can be used to treat a variety of diseases. Some like to massage with aromatic oils, while others respond more to oils alone; The following guidelines apply to other applications.
For massage mixes or other applications, choose up to four useful essential oils by selecting those with fragrances that appeal to you. Combine the recommended amount of drops with a carrier oil suitable for your skin type following the mixing instructions. These remedies have proven to be effective in many people. However, if your condition does not improve in a few days, consult a doctor and consult a specialist if problems persist.
Other ways to use essential oils
Use warm compresses to relieve back or abdominal pain. Cold packs to treat headaches, swollen joints, bruises and sprains. Put up to 6 drops of essential oil in a large bowl of water. Mix, then place a cloth surface on the surface of the water to collect a film of oil. Turn and apply over the affected area for 10 to 20 minutes. Then, if necessary, soak the cloth again to maintain the temperature.
As inhalations and facial vapours.
Inhalations are invaluable in relieving respiratory problems, colds, sore throats and coughs. They are an effective way to open pores and thoroughly clean the skin. Do not use inhalation if you have asthma or broken capillaries. Fill a large bowl with boiling water and add 2 to 6 drops of essential oil. Lean over the bowl and, if you wish, cover your head with a towel to catch the steam for five to ten minutes. Take a deep breath and close your eyes as the oil vapour may sting. Do not use more than once a week for skin problems. Use it for respiratory problems up to three times a day.
As a freshener
To keep insects out of the room, clean air from kitchen odours and, in general, cool the house, add 2 drops of essential oil to 100 ml of boiled and cooled water in a plant sprayer. Shake well and spray the room. Lemongrass and lavender are some of my favourite aromas of air fresheners.
A series of burners with clay essential oils are available at health food stores. In general, a small candle is lit under a container in which 2 to 4 drops of essential oil are added to the water. The heat of the candle heats the bowl and the essential oils evaporate and smell in the room. Do not allow the water to evaporate completely, otherwise, the container may break. Keep out of the reach of children.
The smell of floors and work surfaces.
To smell the floor, add 2 drops of essential oil to the water before cleaning the area. Use one of your favourite oils. I find rosemary, lemongrass and fresh lemon. The rubbing of the surfaces of the kitchen with essential oils can disinfect and perfume. Eucalyptus oil is probably the disinfectant.
