Every Essential Oil is known to carry a variety of properties, and specific properties can be enhanced or strengthened through blending selected oils together. These properties can be administered independently (atmospherically by diffuser or added to a warm bath), or they can be used in support of other treatment, such as Remedial Massage. Read our FAQ page for more information about what essential oils are and how they work or contact our helpful team at our Brisbane clinic.
Why have an Aromatherapeutic Consult?
As our community and society in general become more focussed on Natural over Synthetic, many people are becoming aware of the benefits of Essential Oils and how they can be used to aid and assist improved general well-being. What isn’t as widely recognised is that some Essential Oils can be harmful, and potentially dangerous (even deadly in worst-case scenarios).
Your aromatherapy consultant will investigate your personal Health History and advise the Essential Oils more likely to provide more recognisable results for your complaint – ensuring that any oils that have harmful potential to you are avoided. A qualified aromatherapist knows how to blend oils to maximise property potential, providing better more recognisable outcomes for you.
Once a blend of Essential Oils is established, you can choose to have your blend used during any massage treatment here in clinic, or you can purchase a bottle to use at home.
What will happen at an Aromatherapy Consultation?
When you come in for an Aromatherapeutic Consultation, we will discuss your individual Medical History and how Essential Oils could provide strong, natural support to your General Health Care regime.
We will investigate any concerns you might have and select a range of Essential Oils that could benefit your physiology … eliminating any Essential Oils that are harmful to you (absolutely or potentially) … and compare the blended aromas, selecting a few combinations that are most appealing to your emotions & psyche. The consultation process is purely discussion and information gathering – there is no practical treatment component included.
How will the results from my Aromatherapy Consultation be used in conjunction with other Treatments?
Once you have had an Aromatherapeutic Consultation, the selected blends can then be used in any other treatment you choose to have in this clinic. We can also prepare a bottle of your personal blend for you to purchase and take away to use at home – either in an oil burner or bath (or both).
If you are an existing client of this clinic, the findings from your Aromatherapeutic Consultation will be considered in conjunction with your existing Client Profile … and while currency of information is always most helpful (for any Health Care treatment), you would not need to have another consult unless your personal medical history changes significantly.
Aromatherapy Consultation – Duration and Cost
An Aromatherapy Consultation takes around 45 minutes and is priced at $50.00. Please be aware that as of 1st April 2019, aromatherapy has been removed from all Private Health Rebate Schedules, and therefore Health Fund Rebates do not apply to aromatherapeutic consultations.
Adding the use of an Essential Oil blend to a Remedial Massage Treatment falls within the scope of a Remedial Massage as it is defined in Health Rebate Schedules, and so rebates will continue to apply in those circumstances.
