The healing process explained
Healing is about more than cure. While it is important for tissue to heal, for bones to knit and for regeneration to take place, healing also occurs on a deep emotional level. In order to heal, we also need to be nurtured, to feel safe and loved and to be cared for. We need to put aside our worries and stresses and focus inward in order to harness the natural ability of the body to heal itself. The best healers are those who are able to nurture their own spirit and release the healing process from inside.
How can natural remedies help?
Natural remedies have a big role to play in healing after injury of any kind. Herbal medicines have been used for centuries to help repair broken bones, torn and sprained muscles, internal and external bruising and injuries of all types.
Ongoing pain and stiffness due to conditions like arthritis, rheumatism and sports injuries respond well to natural intervention without the side effects commonly associated with the prescription drugs.
Aromatherapy is a holistic form of treatment which uses concentrated extractions from a wide range of plants in order to effect and assist with healing. Therapeutic massage using carefully selected aromatherapy oils brings the important soothing element of touch to the healing process.
Not only does this help us to feel good, but it also helps to release endorphins and other pain relieving chemicals in our body, thereby bringing relief. Massage also promotes the flow of oxygen rich blood to the affected areas, thereby speeding up the healing process. In addition, the therapeutic aromas enter the system via the sense of smell and stimulate areas of the brain, assisting with relaxation and pain relief and facilitating the healing process.
Along with massage, one can therefore burn the oils in a special oil burner for further benefit. The area of the brain which interprets smell is very close to the area that processes emotions. Aromatherapeutic oils therefore work very effectively on the emotional level – a crucial factor in any healing process.
Aromatherapeutic oils may be used along with conventional medicines to reduce the need for prescription painkillers, anti-inflammatories, etc.

I will always keep some of this product on hand!” Brent P.
“Fortunately my sister bought me a bottle of your RealHeal Massage Oil for my frozen shoulder. It has been a great relief and with gentle massage every night I can begin to move it again. Best of all is I get some sleep after the massage instead of tossing and turning all night trying to avoid lying on my shoulder! Thanks a lot! ” Lisa
How do I use RealHeal Massage Oil?
With aromatherapy, a little goes a long way! RealHeal Massage Oil may be self applied or (even better) massaged on by someone else.
Pour a little into the palm of the hand and rub together to warm the oil. For postoperative and postnatal use, or for use on bruises, massage should be gentle and applied slowly with the palm of the flat hand. For arthritis, rheumatic conditions or muscular aches and pains, some pressure may be applied in order to reach deep into the muscle fiber. At no point should pressure be strong enough to inflict any pain and it is important that this be a relaxing and positive experience.
Use twice daily or more often if required.
Caution: May be used from the age of 3 years. However, safety during pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been established. Contains groundnut oils and is therefore not recommended for people with nut allergies. RealHeal Massage Oil should not be used on open wounds or cuts.
Note: For even better results, use with RealHeal Tablets or JointEase Plus.
How long till I see results?
