What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy has been around for almost 6,000 years. Aromatherapy did not become widely popular until around the 1980s. It is now renowned for its mental, physical and emotional benefits. Aromatherapy is a holistic healing practice that promotes health and well-being by using natural plant extracts. Aromatic medicinal essential oils are used to improve the overall function of the mind and body. This form of therapy seems to relieve pain, promote a sense of relaxation and improve mood.

What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a therapy that goes back over a thousand years. It is the process of using pressure on areas of the feet. The theory behind reflexology is that certain areas of the foot correspond to organs, glands, and systems of the body. When pressure is applied to these points it brings on healing and even relaxation. Reflexology helps to improve the circulation of blood and oxygen throughout the body. The use of reflexology is meant to bring balance, good health, and a sense of well-being.
Benefits of Reflexology on Your Well-being
The reflexology massage unblocks nerve endings in the feet. This special massage helps to boost circulation and rebalance the lymphatic system. There are studies that indicate its ability to reduce pain. Reflexology is used to benefit psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and stress. This type of massage can assist with sleeping issues as well. Studies show that reflexology enhances relaxation and produces a better sleep pattern. This is a great option if you are seeking relaxation and overall stress relief.
