What is anxiety?
Anxiety is the inability to relax and control one’s thoughts. It is very hard to manage with medication or other types of therapy but an aromatherapy massage can help you be calm, relaxed and in control.
The oils used during your visit will work directly on the limbic system which controls our emotions, memories and behaviour.
How does anxiety affect the brain?
During anxiety the limbic system becomes overactive and releases excess amounts of hormones that cause your heart rate to increase, hands to sweat, you may feel hot or nauseous.
This is caused by an overload of neurotransmitters such as dopamine which can be reduced with an aromatherapy massage.
Anxiety cannot just go away overnight and takes time to work out your triggers but it can be helped successfully and everyone is different.
