LEARN MORE | SUBTLE AROMATHERAPY

Subtle Aromatherapy is a form of Chakra Balancing* that works with essentials oils in a lower concentration, designed to focus on the mental and emotional levels of the body.  By intuitively connecting with the clients energy centre (7 major energy centres or chakras in the body), a custom blend of essentials oils are used to connect the individual to that energy centre in a safe environment with guided dialogue. This process allows you to identify what is being held in that energy centre that may contribute to energy blockages, old behavioural patterns and potential health issues you may be struggling with.

For optimal health we strive to achieve balance and alignment of all 7 chakras, however, the reality is that we all carry our emotions, traumas, angers, hurts, shame, etc in our bodies and are always in need of balancing. There are many ways to achieve this balance and subtle aromatherapy is one way to confront and release what we hold in our bodies that show up in other ways in our lives.

*CHAKRA BALANCING

There are 7 major energy centres in the body called chakras. The root of who we are is energy and energy can be transformed. Chakras are our transformers. When our cells and body are not at ease and not vibrating at its optimal level, we are prone to disease. We are the creation of good health as well as disease within our bodies. Illness is the last sign of poor vibration. Each chakra has a location, name and function (see attached diagram).

For optimal health we strive to achieve balance and alignment of all 7 chakras, healing ourselves on the energetic level before it can transform into illness or dis-ease.  Chakra Balancing can be achieved through self work as well as external assistance.

 

How do we know when a chakra is blocked and what does this mean?

Each chakra is a direct link to our organs/body parts, physical, emotional, mental and emotional health, and when a chakra is blocked and not functioning at optimal health (i.e. vibrating at a low energetic frequency), physical, emotional, mental and emotional issues arise. They can be subtle or extreme in the impact they have on your life.
