Aromatherapy is a professional treatment method to help promote health and wellness. If you are looking for ways to contend with aches and discomforts, then aromatherapy and essential oils may be able to help. Aromatherapy can help to relieve pain in the neck, back, shoulders and other areas of the body with the use of plant-derived oils in conjunction with chiropractic treatment.
Aromatherapy is available at Blooming Chiropractic in Costa Mesa and the surrounding area. These oils come from natural plants and can help people who struggle with a variety of health conditions. As a chiropractor, Dr. Jane Macris, DC incorporates this therapy into interventions to help patients feel more at ease and comfortable.

Benefits of aromatherapy
Whether from accidents, mishaps, injuries or getting older, people of all walks of life and ages confront pain. Sometimes this pain can be unbearable and may even contribute to other health concerns. In other cases, the pain may be the result of health concerns. Using these plant-derived oils, along with chiropractic treatment, may have a positive effect on improving some of the following conditions:
- Stress and anxiety
- Headaches and migraines
- Digestive issues
- Immune system challenges
- Sore joints
Chiropractic and oils work together
While we perform chiropractic adjustments on patients, we may recommend aromatherapy during the same appointment. In this procedure, Dr. Jane Macris, DC may use sudden, controlled pressure to the person’s spine to realign it. By using oils with the treatment, the therapy can help relax the person’s muscle tissues.
This relief, in turn, can minimize lasting soreness following the joint manipulations. It is not unusual for patients to experience some tenderness after an adjustment. The oils have the potential to act as a calming influence during and after chiropractic appointments.
Whether a person uses aromatherapy by itself or along with chiropractic treatment, the process is the same. When people apply these oils topically, the bloodstream absorbs them, the oils move through the body. In addition to this, the oils have a strong sense of smell, which also helps users enjoy the benefits.
Conditions the aromatherapy may address
For many people, at the first sign of sickness or pain, the first reaction is to take medication or visit a doctor. While these may be sensible and convenient decisions, there may be a smarter answer. Since store-bought medications vary in their level of effectiveness or only provide temporary relief, it is beneficial to seek out other possible options.
It may be right for an individual to try a different alternative. Therapy using these oils have provided patients with relief from a wide range of health concerns. Some of the issues these oils may help with include:
Patients can benefit from the versatility of using these oils, either alone or in tandem with chiropractic work. Aroma treatments can be effective for people of all ages, backgrounds, body types, conditions and health histories. As a team of professional chiropractors, we can provide relief and satisfaction to all patients using this natural intervention.
How to use the oils
Our team will incorporate different methods of this therapy into regular appointments for patients. We will customize the treatment for every patient since each person has different needs to address. Dr. Jane Macris, DC will determine the duration and frequency of the visits as well, as what oils the patient should have and how to use them. Some of the methods of applying or introducing the oils include inhalers, facial steamers, creams, lotions, bathing salts and diffusers.
Each patient may respond more favorably to one type of oil or one application method than another. The chiropractor and patient will discuss which ones are more appropriate and will have a more desirable effect during treatments. There are plenty of oils available for people to use every day or along with chiropractic adjustments.
We may lean toward one item or another, and the patient may also have a preference. Some of the most popular oils are cinnamon, lavender, lemongrass, eucalyptus, thyme, oregano, peppermint and rosemary. It may be helpful to use a combination of various oils, or patients may see more desirable results with one type or another.
