Aromatherapy is used as a “fragrant cure” to promote physical and emotional wellbeing. It can be applied through inhalation or directly to the skin in the form of an oil. Aromatherapy is a powerful tool because it affects the three portions of the body – the chemistry of your body, the physical ability of your body to function and process, and the emotional and mental aspects of your body. Aromatherapy has a long history, featuring in the records of ancient Egypt, China, Greece, Rome, and Arabia. It became recognized as a medical discipline in 1937.

Aromatherapy is actually a facet of a larger category of holistic medicine known as herbal medicine and can be used to treat a wide range of physical problems, as well as affect our emotions. Herbal medicine relies on plant-based treatments to promote physical and psychological wellbeing. For example, sniffing sage is known to quell panic, while the fragrance released when peeling an orange can make you feel more optimistic. Dr. Victor Zeines utilizes aromatherapy with the intention of helping our patients relax and feel comfortable at our office.
