Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic plant oils, including essential oils, for psychological and physical well-being. Because essential oils are composed of the tiniest of organic molecules, they can pass through cell walls and membranes delivering therapeutic benefits not only to the plants that create them, but to people as well. At Dragonfly 360 Yoga & Wellness in Indianapolis, we offer aromatherapy sessions that can help you obtain a healthy balance.

Advantages of Aromatherapy and Essential Oils
Essential oils are extracts from plant fluids that maintain plant life. A plant’s circulatory system is very similar to that of a human. These fluids and resins move through the plant’s circulatory system in the leaves, stems, roots, and flowers, carrying nutrition to the plant cells and carrying waste products out. When essential oils are inhaled, the molecules of oil enter the bloodstream via the lungs and travel to the organs and tissues of the body where they can administer their benefits.
In some cases, essential oils can also be taken orally or rubbed directly on the skin, usually on the feet or the back. Essential oils are often diluted with natural carrier oil such as olive, almond, or grape seed. In all cases, the small essential oil molecules penetrate the body and assist in obtaining a balance that can lead to strength and health.
Dragonfly 360 Vita Flex Technique
Vita Flex means “vitality through the reflexes”. This method utilizes the benefits of applying essential oils through the bottom of the feet. Similar to reflexology, Vita Flex differs in that it releases an electrical charge that sends energy through the neuroelectrical pathways. This reflex system of controls encompasses the entire body and mind, releasing all kinds of tension, congestion, and imbalances. This technique was believed to have originated in Tibet many thousands of years ago, long before acupuncture was ever discovered. An aromatherapist from Dragonfly 360 can use the Vita Flex Technique to help with a wide range of health issues.
