Spring is upon us and very soon we will be enjoying the abundance of beautiful flowers that will bloom in the coming months! My biggest hope for you is that you get to enjoy these flowers and then come and tell us all about what you love about them! We would love to hear it as knowledge about our clients is power for us here at KIH!

Smell goes a long way in creating new memories and feelings. Knowing these feelings will become very helpful for you in your own self-care and also for treatment here at the clinic if you chose to have an aromatherapy treatment.

 

How would this be useful for an Aromatherapy treatment?

The more your Certified Aromatherapist Healthcare Practitioner (CAHP) knows about your health history and preferences with flowers and herbs, the safer and more enjoyable your massage treatments will be.

 

What is Aromatherapy?

It is the advanced study of the structural and chemical components of plants, herbs, roots and fruits to use for the purpose of promoting health and well-being through a holistic approach.

 

What is a Holistic approach in Aromatherapy?

The holistic approach to treatment is best defined as treating the whole person (mind, body, spirit)

For your certified aromatherapist, the knowledge of the advanced study of aromatherapy that they have completed, is used to make safe and personalized oil blends for each of their clientscases. The personalized oil blends made for the client are then incorporated into a gentle and comforting aromatherapy treatment -- promoting stress-relief and health for that person.

The treatment will inevitably relax the body, but the essential oils chosen and used for treatment will also address the mind and spirit (affecting moods and feelings) as scent and the therapeutic effects of the organic materials used will travel throughout the persons system. This is what it means to treat thewholeperson for the Certified Aromatherapist healthcare practitioner.

How the person will feel, besides relief of stress, is the unique part of each personstreatment as those results will always vary in some way due to the activation of all senses. This is why the feedback you give to your certified aromatherapist is key to updating your future treatments to give you the best treatments possible with the power of plants.

 

What are Essential Oils?

It is the very potent liquid of a plant, root or fruit when squeezed out. Essential oils, and carrier oils also, are by-products of an organic material.

 

Are all Essential Oils the same?

No, they are not. Literature pieces and studies show that natural plants are not all created equal and therefore must be used with caution, knowledge, wisdom and great respect to ensure safety when using them. It is the reason why a Certified Aromatherapist Healthcare Practitioner (CAHP) is very useful for taking care of your health in this department.

 

What is a Certified Aromatherapist Healthcare Practitioner?

A Certified Aromatherapist Healthcare Practitioner (CAHP) is a certified therapist of aromatherapy that has undergone the very intensive studies to use the art of aromatherapy in practice and in public with a certifiable aromatherapy teacher.

A CAHP will not only do the treatments for you, but they teach you how to use essential and carrier oils safely, relative to your own personal health history and preferences, at home. When using their services, they will make a specific blend for you, on-site, to use for your home-care.

 

Why is on-site important?

It is generally safer and most beneficial for your health when compared to using pre-blended mixtures, because your therapist will always have fresher oils, make it specifically for you, and this means greater therapeutic results for thewholeperson. Your blend will be presented and given to you in a beautiful bottle.

 

I hope this has inspired you to come and meet our CAHP once our clinic has re-opened. Try an aromatherapy treatment and involve yourself to learn more about the art of aromatherapy. Learn how to incorporate it into your every day life. Learn about which essential and carrier oils are best for you to use. Have a treatment, and then receive easy and inspiring self-care to do at home with your bespoke oil blend in a beautiful bottle.
