Acupuncture meets Aromatherapy
in Aroma Acupoint(TM)
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils from plants to support the systems of the body and increase wellness. When combined with acupuncture points with similar actions, the results are profound.
In addition, the scent receptors in your nose communicate with parts of your brain -the amygdala and hippocampus- that serve as storehouses for emotions and memories. Research has shown that when you breathe in essential oil molecules, they stimulate those parts of your brain and
influence physical, emotional, and mental health.
