What is AromaTouch Therapy?

The AromaTouch Technique is a new essential oil application method that was developed by Dr. David K. Hill, one of the leading experts on the use of essential oils for medicinal benefit. In AromaTouch Therapy, there is a series of 8 different essential oils applied to the body using simple hand techniques. Because essential oils contain a variety of different healing properties, each oil used in the AromaTouch Technique was selected specifically for its individual therapeutic benefit and aroma.

What are essential Oils and what benefits can they provide?

Essential oils embody the regenerating, oxygenating and immune-strengthening properties of plants. They are so small in size that they can quickly penetrate the skin. In fact, they can affect every cell in the body within 20 minutes of application. Essential oils are powerful antioxidants, and are also antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, anti-viral, antiseptic and anti-tumor.

Essential oils are distilled from plants (including parts such as the seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, flowers and fruit). One of the factors that determines the purity and therapeutic value of an oil is its chemical constituents. There are hundreds of these constituents in plants, each one with its own individual healing properties. As we begin to learn the power of essential oils in the realm of holistic health, it is important that we understand the necessity of using only pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils. Not only will this ensure that the oils we are using contain the plant’s natural chemical constituents needed to facilitate healing, but will also provide assurance that the oils don’t contain any potentially toxic manufactured chemicals or additives.

Why get AromaTouch Therapy?

All of us experience things in our daily lives that can negatively influence our overall well-being, whether that be on a physical or emotional level. These disruptions can cause an imbalance in homeostasis, which is the natural balance of our health and body systems. This technique was specifically developed to address four major systemic constants: stress, toxic insult, inflammatory response, and autonomic imbalance. Thus, the AromaTouch Technique works to minimize the impact and potentially harmful effects of these factors while restoring homeostasis within the body.
