Good Scents: Aromatherapy On Long Island
Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of essential oils that are extracted from plants. The oils are extracted from various plants and then distilled to be inhaled or applied to the skin. At Body N Balance Healing we offer several aromatherapy treatments that are meant to soothe the mind body and spirit. Aromatherapy is thought to work by sending messages from the smell receptors through the nervous system to the limbic system. This is the part of the brain that controls emotions. When you relax the mind with aromatherapy, a massage can be made more effective. Essential oils can help manage anxiety, improve sleep, ease headaches and ease nausea.
Essential oils that are applied to the skin can soothe, smooth, and enhance the complexion of the skin. When receiving an aromatherapy body wrap, your body will sweat out toxins and absorb the soothing properties of the oils. Certain essential oils have anti bacterial properties that help heal skin disorders and prevent acne break outs.
When you venture into Body N Balance Healing in Wantagh Long Island, you will be able to receive an aromatherapy treatment that is specific to your needs. We are dedicated to having you leave our spa feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to face the day stress free!
