I’m very pleased to announce a new therapeutic offering – Aroma Touch Therapy. Aroma Touch Therapy was developed by Dr. David Hill, a licensed Chiropractic Physician and the Chief Medical Advisor to dōTERRA, a leading manufacturer of therapeutic grade oils. The Aroma Touch Therapy technique uses 8 specially blended essentials oils developed by dōTERRA.
The Aroma Touch Therapy technique involves applying a combination of the 8 different essential oils in a precise sequence. The technique helps with:
- Reducing stress – Emotional stress, career choices, family discord, financial worries and the like elevate stress levels. Clinical studies have linked high stress and chronic stress to numerous negative health conditions.
- Boosting immune system response – We’re exposed to a wide array of toxic insults, including disease-causing pathogens, hormone and pesticide contaminated food products, and elevating free-radical assault from pollution, foods, and sunlight. The Aroma Touch Therapy technique uses a blend of oils specifically designed to help reduce adrenal fatigue and strengthen immune system response.
- Reducing inflammation – The increased consumption of foods with pro-inflammatory components (foods high in polyunsaturated vegetable oils such as safflower, corn, and peanut oil) together with high carbohydrate, low protein diets contribute to increased inflammation in body systems. Stress, with its accompanying imbalance of cortisol, can also contribute to inflammation. Studies increasingly show links between poor health and chronic inflammation. The Aroma Touch Therapy technique uses a blend of oils that help reduce inflammation in soft tissue, thereby contributing to an overall sense of well-being.
- Balancing the nervous system – Imbalance of the autonomic nervous system can negatively impact health in a number of ways. Aroma Touch Therapy helps to restore the body to a state of homeostasis (balance) and helps to address the physiological impact of stressors on the body.
Clients may schedule a 30-minute Aroma Touch Therapy session, or include Aroma Touch Therapy as part of their therapeutic massage session.
Visit my website to schedule your Aroma Touch Therapy session now. And as an added bonus, if you book an appointment for Aroma Touch Therapy in May or June, you will receive a FREE copy of my e-Book, The Essenstials about Essential Oils, a beautifully illustrated reference guide written by Marlene Druhan and me that will help you incorporate essential oils into your daily life.
Here’s one of the many formulas that are included in the book. This formula is for a natural cleaning agent.
Lemongrass-Citrus Sink, Tub, or Toilet Scrub: Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda in a damp sink or tub along with 6 drops of lemongrass essential oil and 6 drops of lemon essential oil. Use a wet sponge (rough or smooth) and clean as usual. Rinse very well. ** Caution: some sinks and tubs (especially old tubs with “make over” surfaces) scratch easily so keep this in mind. Use with care. Variation: Use 6 drops of lavender essential oil and 2 drops of spearmint essential oil. This can also be used as a toilet scrub.
Finally, here is a brief video featuring Dr. Hill from dōTERRA, as he explains some of the benefits of essential oils and how they work.
