Can Aromatherapy Enhance Chiropractic Care?
I’m a big advocate of chiropractic care, and I’ll be the first to say that just on its own, chiropractic adjustment sessions are fantastic at relieving pain, tension, and stress, while making it easier to live a healthier lifestyle in general. I’ll make it known here that I’m also a big fan and advocate of using aromatherapy. At the risk of sounding like an old fashioned hippie (hey, I am from San Francisco after all), I truly think that there’s something soothing and healing that comes with inhaling the right essential oils and fragrances.
Therefore, it was only inevitable for me to do some digging on whether chiropractic treatment can be enhanced by the use of aromatherapy as well. As I reminded myself of the health benefits that come with aromatherapy by reading apost by Massage Envy, I was struck by how similar the benefits listed were to chiropractic’s benefits.
While most of us tend to associate aromatherapy with massages, it can be used in a variety of contexts, and may also prove to be very beneficial for certain chiropractic patients who want to try it out. It is another form of alternative medicine that can be used to relieve a whole bunch of different physical and mental ailments and conditions. Sometimes the essential oils are rubbed directly into the skin and absorbed by the body, but many times just the smell of certain fragrances, such as peppermint or lavender, is enough to enhance the experience of chiropractic.
Whether you are an experienced patient of aromatherapy or not, you can definitely benefit from chiropracticwith or without aromatherapy as well or other supplementary treatment methods.
