Clinical aromatherapy is the controlled use of essential oils from plants to enhance health and well being. The use of essential oils to promote health and healing is thousands of years old and rooted in herbal medicine.
Clinical aromatherapy has been known to relieve these symptoms:
- Migraine headaches
- Menstrual cramps
Patients at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth can receive aromatherapy while they are staying in the hospital and are welcome to a free consultation. Research has shown that patients who have long-term diseases as well as patients who are in the hospital temporarily can benefit from clinical aromatherapy.
Also, any individual who wants to try clinical aromatherapy outside of the hospital setting to relieve a symptom or simply to just relax can visit the Outpatient Aromatherapy Clinic at the Alternative Medicine Center. Using essential oils to their maximum potential and consulting a Certified Clinical Aromatherapy Practitioner (CCAP) may save patients time and money.
