Essential Oils

We know that when adjusting the body it is important to work on relaxing the muscle tissue first. Essential oils can increase circulation, decrease soreness and discomfort, and calm and relax muscle tissue. The chemical structure of essential oils allows them to be absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin for internal benefit throughout the body within 30 seconds of application, resulting in much needed relief from inflammation, soreness, toxicity and more. At Awaken Chiropractic, Dr. Lederman uses Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils that are 100% pure, natural, aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities and are free of contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues. The oils used at Awaken Chiropractic are tested to ensure the presence of their active compounds, at the right levels. This testing enables us to be confident in the safety and effectiveness of the oils we choose to use.

What is an Essential Oil?

Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, and flowers of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant, eliciting profound emotional responses. Yet the use of essential oils goes well beyond their fragrant appeal. Used throughout history for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits, essential oils can be used as natural alternatives in holistic self-care practices. Their unique chemistry allows them to be used aromatically and applied topically to the skin, while other essential oils can be used as dietary aids to promote vitality and well being. Ask Dr. Lederman how you can use essential oils for you and your family.
