What is Aromatherapy and how does it work?
We all know that scent is powerful and can evoke strong memories and feelings. The scent of essential oils goes a step further. Essential oils have properties that can increase the body's healing capabilities and relieve stress. Through the use of essential oils a certified aromatherapist assists a person into a state of peaceful relaxation where healing can occur. Clients leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated often experiencing permanent healing through multiple sessions.
"The combination (triple punch) of Phenylpropanoids, Sesqueterpenes, and Monoterpens is especially healing. That's because with this combination you: (1) first, you clean the receptor sites allowing proper transfer of hormones and proper information between cells; (2) second, you deprogram or erase the wrong information from cells stored in the MRNA and DNA; and (3) third, you reprogram the cells with the correct information so they can function properly and effect a permanent healing. To one extent or another, most essential oils contain some of all three of these three types of terpens which is the secret to their healing power." -excerpt from Blood-Brain Barrier/How the Oils Work by David Stewart, Ph.D.
