Dr. Noonan is a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist

The use of essential oils for therapeutic reasons (aromatherapy) should always be done under the guidance of a certified (NAHA approved school) professional. Essential oils are much more than a fad and when used wisely and responsibly can have profound effects on human physiology.

Powerful & Pure Plant Extracts

Essential Oils are the highly concentrated natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant. They have been used for thousands of years to enhance physical and emotional well-being. Essential oils are miniscule in molecular size, which means they are absorbed well by the skin and don’t accumulate in the body over time – they simply offer up their healing properties and then pass on through. Most essential oils are high in antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties, support the healing of pain, inflammation, muscular strains and can help ease everyday stress and tension as well as support healthy weight loss.

The incorporation of essential oils is an exciting and creative addition to Well Body Chiropractic both for in-office treatments and for lifestyle changes to eliminate toxins and chemicals from the home.

HOW AROMATHERAPY CAN BE UTILIZED FOR YOUR NEEDS

Aromatherapy can be used as an element of  your adjustment to help support a physical or emotional healing process. Some examples include blends for anxiety, arthritis, menstrual pain, stress and immune support. 

In Addition, Dr. Noonan can create custom formulations that are just right for you based on your needs and health history. Please schedule an Aromatherpy Consultation so your needs can be assessed and the perfect formulation created for you.
