What is AromaTouch™ ? Why should we use it?
dōTERRA®’S AROMATOUCH® TECHNIQUE IS A simple step-by-step method of applying therapeutic grade essential oils topically to produce a profound whole-body wellness experience.
The benefits of the AromaTouch Technique include:
Suffering from stress? Clinical studies have linked high stress as one of the major factors in developing a wide variety of physical and emotional illnesses. Stress can be a result of emotional challenges, career choices, family problems, financial worries, and others. Reducing stress is vital in achieving better health. AromaTouch Technique supports stress reduction and stress management.
Sick with a cold or flu? AromaTouch Technique boosts the immune system, supporting your body in fighting off bacterial and viral infections. Essential oils can penetrate the cell membrane of a virus, killing the virus cell. Boost your immune system, so your body is better equipped to fight off bacteria or viruses you come in contact with.
Increased Inflammation? Daily we consume foods with pro-inflammatory components (foods high in polyunsaturated vegetable oils such as safflower, sunflower, corn and peanut oil) combined with high carbohydrates and low protein diets, we contribute to increased inflammation in our bodies. In addition stress, with its accompanying imbalance of cortisol, can also contribute to inflammation, as do a variety of immunological dysfunctions. Clinical studies increasingly show a correlation between increased inflammation and the development of fatal diseases. See Time Magazine’s cover story: Inflammtion – The Secret Killer.
Autonomic Imbalance? Autonomic imbalance is the opposite of homeostasis, it is an imbalance of the autonomic nervous system which can negatively impact health and wellness. Significant morbidity and mortality can now be attributable to autonomic imbalance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system regulation of cardiovascular function (see study published at National Library of Medicine). Restoring the body’s homeostasis can reduce the physiological impact of stressors on the body.
In addition to what is mentioned above I’ve also come across the use of AromTouch Technique to help Quadraplegics and people suffering from Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s. From what I’ve read Frankincense is added to the oil application technique and usually applied following the application of Lavender.
