The Olfactory Efficacy of            Aromatherapy

Essential oils are nature’s music.  Capable of affecting the amygdala of the brain and altering our emotions and healing wounds.  Even western medicine and science is catching on to the power of aromatherapy.  I regularly use a diffuser at home, do facial steams when congested, and wear different oil blends to guide or bolster my disposition.  In my practice I stick to two oils; one to ground and relax at the beginning of a treatment, another to ground and uplift at the end of a treatment.  Juniper Ridge is an Oakland based company that creates their oils from foraged plants.  Redwood Mist is my absolute favorite blend.  I also love doubling up tea bags of their Douglas Fir tea.  Clary Sage is my preferred uplifting oil.

Arnica Montana;
homeopathy for temporary muscle bruising, tension, trauma, stiffness, overexertion, inflammation, tissue healing

Arnica (Arnica montana) has been used for medicinal purposes since the 1500s and is still popular today. Applied to the skin as a cream, ointment, liniment, salve, or tincture, arnica has been used to soothe muscle aches, reduce inflammation, and heal wounds. The pellets are to be taken under the tongue and allowed to dissolve.  It is commonly used for injuries, such as sprain, inflammation, stiffness,  and bruises.   I’ve been applying arnica cream/gel and taking the pellets for most of my life for temporary tissue soreness.  Both the pellets and cream/ointment are excellent compliment to manual therapy.
