Clifton – a city with a crazy pace of life. That’s why stress here can become an integral part of your daily routine.

What is aromatherapy in Clifton?

Aromatherapy in Clifton

Aroma therapy is a form of alternative medicine that is gaining more and more popularity, and Clifton is no exception. Have you ever tried such an exotic way to relax? If not, it’s worth trying aromatherapy services at Pulse Acupuncture. In this article, you will learn more about the subject, when aromatherapy can be beneficial, and so on.

Naturals aromatherapy services use essential oils, which are extracted from plants and contain natural aromatic components. Oils can be obtained from different parts of plants, such as leaves, stems, roots, fruits, and so on.

Each essential oil has its unique aroma and properties that can influence both emotional and physical well-being. These oils can exist and be used in different forms, such as massage oil, aerosol, aromatic pillows, and so on. They can be applied at home or in professional salons and spa centers.

A little bit about the history of aromatherapy

Don’t be scared by the term “alternative medicine” in the definition of aromatherapy. Aromatherapy history dates back millennia, rooted in the ancient history of many civilizations. The earliest evidence of the use of essential oils was found in the Mesopotamian region (modern-day Iraq, Syria, Turkey, and Iran territories).

In modern history, aromatherapy as a scientifically-based practice emerged in the 20th century. It was pioneered by the French scientist and chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé, who conducted research on aromatherapy oils and their effects on the body in the 1920s. Subsequently, many other scientists and chemists contributed to the further understanding and development of this practice.

What is aromatherapy good for?

Aromatherapy can be used for the prevention and alternative treatment of various conditions that conventional medicine may not be able to assist you with. Here is an approximate list of how aromatherapy can help:

  1. Aromatherapy for sleep. According to research by the National Sleep Foundation, about 1/3 of adults in the United States do not get the recommended 7 or more hours of sleep. In this case, lavender essential oils can be used to calm the nervous system. This oil is especially beneficial for young people and women with insomnia. For students, it can help them wake up without feeling tired or sleepy. Bergamot oils can help lower blood pressure and improve mental health. In one study, 64% of healthy women surveyed reported that a blend of bergamot and sandalwood essential oils improved their sleep quality. Scientific studies have also shown that a blend of Roman  chamomile, lavender, and neroli can help improve sleep quality even during intensive care.
  1. Aromatherapy for anxiety. The aforementioned blend of Roman chamomile, lavender, and neroli not only improves sleep quality but also helps to fight anxiety. According to research from Johns Hopkins University, essential oils can be effective in cases where other treatment methods have not yielded the desired results.

  1. Aromatherapy for nausea. The aromas of ginger, peppermint, spearmint or bergamot can help with symptoms of food poisoning and nausea.
  2. Aromatherapy for headaches. Essential oils of lavender, rosemary, peppermint, chamomile, and eucalyptus can help alleviate symptoms of headaches. However, they should not be used during pregnancy as they may be harmful to the fetus.
  3. Aromatherapy for relaxation. Lavender, geranium, patchouli, or sandalwood essential oils not only improve sleep quality and reduce anxiety but also make you relaxed.
  4. Aromatherapy for migraines. Lemon, peppermint, and lavender essential oils, as mentioned above, can help with migraines, as well as nausea, photophobia, and other migraine symptoms.

And this is not the full list of what aromatherapy can help with. The most important thing is that all of these benefits are scientifically proven.

How does aromatherapy work?

Aromatherapy course Clifton

As previously mentioned, aromatherapy is a method of using various essential oils to improve physical or emotional well-being. There are several main methods used in aromatherapy:

  1. Diffusion: this involves inhaling the aroma of essential oils through special devices such as aroma lamps, air humidifiers, diffusers, or aromatic candles. Essential oils are added to water, special containers, or sprayed on surfaces (such as pillows). The oil, when heated or exposed to ultrasonic waves, begins to release its aroma.
  1. Aromatherapy massage: non-greasy essential oils are also used in massage. Such massages are performed for simple relaxation and tension relief, as well as for the prevention and treatment of certain conditions, such as muscle pain or inflammation.
  2. Inhalation: adding essential oils to a hot bath allows the aroma to not only spread through the air but also be absorbed through the skin, providing aromatherapy relaxation or invigorating effect. Remember to follow the rules and use suitable oils to avoid skin irritation.
  3. Compresses: the oil is applied to a cloth, which is then wrapped and heated. This helps to alleviate pain or inflammation in various parts of the body.
  4. Aromatherapy candles: oil is added to the composition of the candle, which releases its aroma during burning. Be cautious and keep these candles away from children and pets.

All of these methods can be used either in combination to treat various conditions or separately for illness prevention or relaxation. The key is to observe safety precautions when doing aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy benefits at Pulse Acupuncture

While aromaterapia and essential oils are not regulated by law, using them without understanding their effects can be dangerous to your health. Therefore, before considering aromatherapy at home, it is important to consult with a specialist. When using aromatherapy at home, you are limited in the range of services that can be professionally provided. For example, you will not be able to perform a professional massage with essential oils. If you care about your health, the best solution is to entrust it to professionals.

Aromatherapy can also be used not as a standalone practice, but in combination with other treatment methods to achieve maximum effectiveness. For example, combining aromatherapy with acupuncture can enhance the positive properties of both practices. When combining aromatherapy and acupuncture, essential oils can be used for:

  1. Applying acupuncture points before needle insertion enhances the effect.
  1. Massaging before or after an acupuncture session to relax muscles and improve blood circulation.
  2. Diffusing the aroma and creating an atmosphere to fight stress and relax.
  3. In general, aromatherapy can be combined with many other Eastern and Western medical and cosmetic practices. For example, aromatherapy can be combined with cupping, tui-na massage, and others.

At Pulse Acupuncture in Clifton, you do not need to worry about how to properly perform the procedure, what to use, and how to avoid mistakes. Qualified specialists with years of experience will take care of it for you.

Dear Dr.Marina Doktorman,I hope this message finds you well! I am writing to express my deepest gratitude for the incredible impact your acupuncture sessions have had on my life. Your expertise and care have helped me find relief and healing in ways I never thought possible.When I first sought acupuncture, I was struggling with a combination of issues that affected my overall well-being. Chronic back pain was causing constant discomfort, and my restless nights were dominated by persistent night sweats. Additionally, I was battling frustrating skin issues that seemed to resist all other forms of treatment.From the very first session, I knew I was in good hands. Your thorough understanding of my concerns and willingness to explain the acupuncture process put me at ease. The ambiance of your clinic created a serene and comforting space, setting the tone for a transformative healing journey.What amazed me most was the efficacy of acupuncture in addressing my various health challenges. The impact on my sleep was nothing short of miraculous. After a few sessions, I began experiencing deep, uninterrupted sleep, waking up refreshed and energized—a change I had been longing for, but never found through other methods.Furthermore, the improvement in my skin condition was remarkable. Acupuncture seemed to trigger a healing response, and gradually, my skin issues started to fade away. I couldn't believe the visible transformation, and it did wonders for my self-confidence.As for the night sweats and back pain, they became less frequent and intense with each session. Your targeted approach and skillful needle placement directly addressed the root causes of my discomfort, providing much-needed relief and easing the burdens I had carried for far too long.I cannot stress enough how appreciative I am for the positive impact you've had on my life. Your dedication to helping your patients achieve better health and well-being is truly commendable. I wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone seeking holistic and effective solutions to their health issues.Once again, thank you for your expertise, kindness, and genuine care. You have not only been my acupuncturist but also a catalyst for transformative change in my life. I am forever grateful for the healing journey we embarked on together.Thank you Dr. Marina Doktorman! Special shoutout to Olga for being so welcoming!

This place is awesome! Such a relaxing experience. Marina addresses all my concerns and always makes me feel comfortable. The treatments I received here have solved several of my health issues in just a few sessions after years of OTC medication. I would definitely recommend Pulse for serious health concerns and even if you just want some stress relief or add a new beauty treatment to your regimen! A+ for Marina Doktorman.

I was a patient of Marina Doktorma for about two weeks (October/November 2020), receiving acupuncture treatments for lower back and knee pain. Marina is a true professional. Before beginning each treatment, she explained the treatment options and made sure that I was well informed and comfortable before beginning. She was very gentle as she administered the treatments, (I feel asleep a few times) communicating with me throughout the process. In addition to the premise being very clean, relaxing music made for a very calming experience. Without hesitation, I would return for future treatments if the pain returns. Kenny.
