Aromatherapy is a service growing in popularity across the United States as people seek new ways to decrease stress and increase their energy through natural and holistic means. This technique blends the use of essential oils with therapeutic massage body work to relieve tension, stimulate relaxation of the mind and help increase the energy flow throughout the body. Aromatherapy seeks to utilize the power of your senses to indulge your body and mind throughout your experience.

The use of essential oils is pivotal to any aromatherapy treatment because it is these specific oils that will provide many of the benefits this service offers. “Essential oils” is a general term that includes natural, aromatic, volatile, plant oils and absolutes. These are often coupled with other natural ingredients to increase the effects such as oils, powders, sugars, clays and mud. These combinations will not only provide the stimulation to your senses through scent but your skin will benefit as well from the ingredients of the natural products.

Essential oils are NOT the same as perfumed oils and this distinction should be clearly understood. Perfumed/fragrant oils have synthetic chemicals added to them and will not provide therapeutic benefits for the body. These products are not regulated however, so it is important to really understand the ingredients of any oils and understand if they are true essential oils designed for aromatherapy or not.

Aromatherapy is the unique combination of the healing powers found within all natural ingredients and the benefits offered through intense muscle massage and bodywork. Therapists trained in aromatherapy are skilled in determining the correct balance of oils, natural products and technique that will benefits the client to the fullest extent possible. Some therapists are trained in holistic techniques that utilize the benefits of aromatherapy as a treatment for many chronic health conditions.

As with any type of massage therapy, the benefits will depend entirely on the individual receiving the treatment. Although massage therapy offers many health benefits, this therapy should not be used in place of other therapies. Aromatherapy is a treatment that can be enjoyed by anyone and should be seen as an indulgent experience that will provide a temporary escape from the stresses of everyday life and stimulate the mind and body. This can be a wonderful gift for someone in your life or a chance to give yourself the gift of relaxation.

                With so much advertising and media today it is sometimes difficult to weed out fact from fiction. Companies will make claims about the effectiveness of their products and how it will dramatically reverse the hands of time but how can the average consumer really know the truth? Nina Howard believes that the real proof is in the results she sees in the mirror every day.

            A thirty second television ad can’t show the benefits of a product adequately. It can’t begin to explain to the emerging baby boomer generation that now is the time to take a stand against early signs of aging and put a stop to the detrimental effects it can have upon the skin. That is why the director of Bellanina, Nina Howard, is willing to be the poster child for the benefits of proper skin care.

            Nina has been faithfully using her products for over a decade. Daily cleansing, toning, moisturizing and correcting as needed has kept her skin youthful and vibrant. After attending her forty year class reunion she was named “Best Preserved” by her fellow classmates. This is not the result of an overnight magic wand treatment – this is the result of dedication to proper skin care and taking the time every morning to keep her skin looking fabulous every day!

            Aging is a natural process that can be affected by genetics and external factors. By knowing this and taking control of the situation as soon as possible it is within your grasp to prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, decrease uneven skin tones and find a solution to redness, dry or cracked skin and other common problems. Don’t think of aging process as an inevitable decline in your appearance because it does not have to be. Aging is accumulation of wisdom and experience and by knowing that age your chronological age becomes just a number, not a punishment.

         Follow Nina’s example by not letting Mother Nature take control! Bellanina products are available in three wonderful lines including Botanicals, Naturals and Cosmeceuticals. Each line offers a range of products that will focus on specific skin care issues relevant to you and your needs.

         Take a page from Nina’s book and don’t let your age keep you down. With her high spirited dog, Ling Ling, trying to keep up, Nina spends her days working hard and isn’t letting anyone tell her to slow down and “act” her age. After all, you are only as old as you feel.
