Essential Oils Therapy at Riverpoint Wellness Group

Essential oils are natural plant extracts that have been used effectively for centuries for their therapeutic properties. These oils are extracted from various parts of plants, including the leaves, flowers, and roots, and contain concentrated aromatic compounds that can have a wide range of physiological and emotional benefits for the patient. 

Essential oils work by interacting with the limbic system in the brain, which is responsible for regulating emotions, behavior, and memory. When inhaled or applied topically, the aromatic compounds in essential oils can have a direct impact on the brain and nervous system, helping to reduce stress, improve mood, and promote relaxation. 

These oils can be used to address a variety of physical and emotional health concerns. For example, lavender oil has been shown to have a calming effect on the nervous system and can help to alleviate anxiety and improve sleep quality. Peppermint oil may help to alleviate headaches and digestive issues, while tea tree oil has natural antimicrobial properties that can be useful in treating skin conditions like acne and eczema.

At Riverpoint Wellness Group, we have found that incorporating essential oils into your treatment plan can be quite helpful! We use essential oils aromatically by diffusing them in your treatment room to help promote relaxation and reduce stress or provide you with some to take home so that you can utilize it when necessary. We’ll make sure to discuss the use of essential oils with you during your appointment and to provide you with proper guidance and education on their safety and efficacy. We can also apply essential oils topically during acupuncture treatments to enhance the therapeutic effects of your treatments. Give the friendly office a call today to schedule a convenient appointment and to find out how essential oils may be of benefit to your unique health goals!
