AromaTouch Technique

Here’s the low down: EVERYONE suffers some form of stress  or anxiety at some point of their life.  Some experience daily, chronic stress while others may encounter a situation or occurrence that is of short duration but has profound effect on their body (i.e. a devastating life event).  NO matter how you look at it Stress is NEGATIVE, it creates imbalances in our body, upsetting overall health, causing illness and at the very least forcing our bodies to work at suboptimal levels.   Aroma Touch Therapy is a hands on therapy using specific combinations of essential oils that DRAMATICALLY changes how our body reacts to stress and buffers the damage it causes.  It relieves muscle spasms, inflammation and helps the body eliminate toxins, bacteria and viruses.

Typical response:  “I felt so amazing, like flowers were popping up everywhere I took a step. My heart felt lighter, I had energy, a steady good mood, I didn’t have to use any oils for pain management” 

LOL – while this may not be everyone’s experience – it sure does come close.  I find the more stress someone is experiencing the stronger {positive} reaction they’ll have to the therapy!

 

Deeper Details:

  • Reducing Stress
  Emotional distress, career choices, family discord, financial worries, lack of rest, etc. all elevate stress levels in the body. Elevated stress levels, maintained over time, have been shown in clinical studies to cause negative consequences to health. Studies have revealed that over time high stress levels can contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease, depression, insomnia, and ulcers.
 Stress also negatively impacts the immune system, leaving it increasingly vulnerable to pathogens. Stress causes the body to increase its production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter in charge of vital nervous system functions. Elevated serotonin levels are harmful to the body’s immunity. While serotonin works to monitor emotional and nerve health at normal levels, at elevated levels it can destroy white blood cells, resulting in a weakened immune system. Stress also causes increased levels of cortisol and epinephrine in body, further weakening immune response.
While many essential oils have been proven to counteract the negative effects of stress, both the essential oil blend Balance and the essential oil Lavender have specific calming effects on body systems.
  • Toxic Insult –  Through the stimulation of lymphatic system the immune system is supported.  Immunity depends on the ability of the body to produce effective white blood cells, complementary proteins, and other cell and body barriers. The immune system comprises a large network of organs and varied cell types, carrying out a range of interrelated functions. Its interconnectedness leaves it very vulnerable to toxins. The normal functioning of the immune system can be easily hampered by a number of factors: environmental, dietary, medical interventions, etc. Exposure to a wide array of toxic insults including disease-causing pathogens, hormone or pesticide contaminated food products, increasing levels of free-radical pollution, and overexposure to radiation all contribute to the weakening of the immune system.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 inflammatory response occurs when body tissues are injured by bacteria, trauma, toxins, heat, or any other cause. The increased consumption of foods with pro-inflammatory components (foods high in polyunsaturated vegetable oils and trans-fats) together with high carbohydrate and insufficient protein consumption contributes to increased inflammation in body tissues. Stress with its accompanying imbalance of cortisol, can also contribute to chronic uncontrolled inflammation and various immunological dysfunctions. Studies increasingly show a direct link between chronic illness, inflammation, and fatal disease. Inflammation is also harmful to the body’s autonomic balance because of its pain inducing effects. 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.
  • Autonomic Imbalance  -The opposite of homeostasis, an imbalance of the autonomic nervous system (also known as the ANS, or visceral nervous system) can negatively impact health in numerous ways.  Recent research has shown a direct link between autonomic imbalance and hypertension (high blood pressure). There is also evidence that autonomic imbalance can lead to cardiovascular morbidity and even mortality. Autonomic imbalances can result from a number of sources, the major ones are mentioned above: stress, decreased immunity, and inflammation. Restoring homeostasis, or autonomic balance, can reduce the physiological impact of stressors on the body. 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.
