Aromatherapy is an alternative modality utilizing essential oils that are derived from a variety of healing plants and herbs. Essential oils can be applied directly to the skin and inhaled through a diffuser. The oils effect the limbic system of the brain which controls emotional responses and behaviors. Research has found that aromatherapy relieves stress and insomnia, acts as an anti-depressant, increases circulation and energy levels, decreases headaches and discomfort caused by certain skin conditions. It also boosts the immune and digestive systems and helps facilitate the healing process. At Flemington Chiropractic Center, we use Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) oils from DoTerra to ensure the highest efficacy for the benefit of the patient.
