Do you suffer from chronic pain?
You feel a bug coming on?
Feeling overwhelmed with life?
I hope you will take the next few minutes to read about how Essential Oils & the simple touch of a hand can help address these situations.
The AromaTouch™ Technique was developed to be a simple massage that anyone can learn. It addresses stress, illness, pain and overall body imbalance with wonderful results. It can be applied to anyone from ages 0-100!
This Technique was created by Dr. David Hill, Chief Medical Officer of doTERRA. His intention was to address the 4 areas of systemic constants that can become a continual downward cycle if not addressed. These systemic constants are
- INFLAMMATION, and
- AUTONOMIC IMBALANCE.
Life is full of it! Learning to manage and reduce stress is a key component to increasing your overall health. Stress has been shown in clinical studies to have a negative impact on heart health, mental health and even lead to some forms of cancer, not to mention insomnia. Stress makes us vulnerable to illness because is compromises our immune system. It stimulates the body to increase it’s level of serotonin and when this hormone is elevated it can destroy the white blood cells in our body meant to defend us against illness.
A compromised immune system leaves us incredibly vulnerable to toxins. These toxins can come from the environment, our food, even our medications. No one is 100% toxin free, but attempts to reduce the effects of the toxins is vital to overall health.
Inflammation is the body tissues responding to bacteria, trauma, toxins, heat and many other causes. Our food choices can lead to inflammation. High cortisol levels, brought on my stress can also contribute to chronic uncontrolled inflammation. Studies have show the connection between chronic illness, inflammation and disease. Inflammation typically results in the feeling of pain.
Each of us has an Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). The ANS is the body’s ability to self-regulate the Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) and Parasympathetic Servous Systems (PNS). Both the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic nervous system address similar organs of the body, but in opposite ways. They are constantly adjusting to the ebb and flow of life according to the needs being picked up by the nervous system. The Sympathetic prepare our body for physical activity and is often referred to as the “fight or flight” response, putting the rest of our body systems on hold as we deal with the “stress” of the moment. The Parasympathetic is responsible for the relaxing and calming of the body, or the “resting and digesting” state. Because our bodies are in a constant state of eb and flow, the ANS is assisting the SNS and the PNS to simultaneously do their jobs. (phew…read that again if you need to.)
Each of the essential oils and blends are applied throughout massage. The body receives the benefit of each of the plants healing essence to address the imbalances in our systems. The massage technique used is designed to help stimulate the meridians of the body and other energy zones. The technique has a certain flow and repetition that makes it easy to learn and relaxing to receive.
