Aromatherapists worldwide are celebrating and participating in Aromatherapy Awareness Week, raising awareness and promoting the health benefits of aromatherapy.Aromatherapy Awareness Week 2021 highlights popularity of treatment for a range of clients
Aromatherapy was recently highlighted in the 2019 FHT Member Survey as one of the top three therapies demanded by clients. The essential oils used in aromatherapy are highly aromatic, readily absorbed into the body via the skin and lungs, and are believed to affect the body on all levels – physically, mentally and even emotionally/spiritually. When combined with massage, which helps to soothe away muscular tension and improve circulation, an aromatherapy treatment can be either deeply relaxing or uplifting, depending on the oils and massage techniques used by the therapist.
Aromatherapy is used by people for a variety of reasons. Some use it to help them manage or cope with specific physical, mental or emotional problems, while others use it as means of relaxation, or to help maintain good health and a sense of general wellbeing.
Aromatherapy massage and essential oils are commonly used in hospitals, hospices and other healthcare settings, to help support patients and their carers. The demand is increasing for complementary therapy in supportive and palliative care, as it provides symptom relief as well as emotional support to patients.
Making sure you’re in safe hands… The FHT’s aromatherapy members are listed on an Accredited Register, independently approved by the Professional Standards Authority and widely promoted to the public and healthcare commissioners.
