FAQ, the most frequently asked questions about aromatherapy

Aromatherapy does not require any special preparation. However, the day before the treatment, it is advisable to carry out a sensitisation test - applying a small amount of the oil mixture chosen by the patient to the skin. On the day of the planned massage, a good mood and a positive attitude are sufficient.

Depending on the purpose of the treatment - whether it is aromatherapy for migraines, muscle tension or other ailments - the Patient is advised to create a space around him/herself which is conducive to maintaining the effects of the aromatherapy treatment. An example of this would be for those struggling with chronic stress to limit activity when the nervous system is soothed.

Before the aromatherapy treatment, the patient chooses the aroma of the essential oil. The criterion for selection should not only be personal preferences and positive effects on the senses, but also the properties of the oil in question. For example, in aromatherapy for stress, oils of lavender, rose, bergamot, chamomile, lemon balm, jasmine, basil or sage, among others, are used. On the other hand, patchouli, rosemary, orange and lavender oils are used in aromatherapy for insomnia.
Aromatherapy with oils can take the form of inhalations, massages or a combination of both. Using appropriate techniques, the physiotherapist provides manual therapy.

The human sense of smell works about ten thousand times faster than the other senses. Fragrance reaches the brain the fastest, releasing the immediate effects of aromatherapy with oils. Applying oils to the skin stimulates specific points in the patient's limbic system - this is what makes aromatherapy treatments for migraine, sleep or stress universally effective.

The length of a relaxation massage with aromatherapy depends on the patient's needs, health and well-being. Before each aromatherapy treatment, he or she benefits from a medical consultation to determine the direction of the therapy together with a specialist. Normally, aromatherapy lasts between 30 and 60 minutes.

The first effects of Aromatherapy Associates therapy are felt by the patient immediately after the treatment. The feeling of relaxation, relaxation and serenity accompanies him for the next few days. Other effects of aromatherapy, such as lymphatic drainage, alleviation of muscular tension, positive effects on the nervous system and positive skin changes have to wait about 1-2 weeks. 

For aromatherapy for sleep, stress or insomnia to have a long-lasting effect, sessions need to be repeated 2-3 times a week. The length of the overall treatment is an individual matter. For chronic complaints such as lymphoedema, muscle pain or back pain, it is advisable to repeat aromatherapy treatments for several or even several weeks.
