Anxiety reduction using fragrances

  • J. R. King


To a psychiatrist like myself, practising in Redditch, Worcestershire, the need for an effective stress-relieving therapy is only too apparent. Redditch is a new town, still unsettled, a place where anxiety and stress-related difficulties are common. Traditional advice offered to sufferers from such problems has been to ‘get away from it all — take a relaxing holiday by the seaside’. For my patients this advice is not easy to follow since the town is about as far away from the sea as you can get in the UK.
