I’ve been a qualified Aromatherapist for a long time now and must say I find my dōTERRA essential oils quite magical; they’ve inspired a revival in my passion for oils. One treatment I offer using these oils is the AromaTouch Technique which is a gentle yet powerful aromatherapy treatment which I suppose you could describe as a dōTERRA “signature treatment” as Dr David Hill, a leading expert in integrative medicine and therapeutic applications of essential oils (and is also dōTERRA’s Chief Medical Officer), put together.
It’s been part of my practice since May 2015 and my clients love it; they find it blissful, healing and relaxing. Separate from offering AromaTouch as a treatment in my practice, I use the specific oils used during AromaTouch on elderly clients I visit at care homes. In my experience they can all benefit from a boost to their immune system, support for inflammatory conditions as well as calming/balancing the emotions and relaxing body and mind, and they enjoy them so much, particularly the smell from Wild Orange which is known as the “Happy Oil” – it’s gorgeous smelling, and for those suffering from dementia anything that helps to make them less anxious is a God send, I love what the oils do for them.
For a full treatment I spend 60 minutes which includes four primary steps designed to minimise stressors to autonomic balance. Each step includes the application of two essential oils or essential oil blends specifically formulated to support healthy emotional and physiological functions for well-being. It is simple and intuitive and is a clinical approach to applying essential oils along energy meridians and visceral contact points of the back and feet to help balance sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems of the body. I can also do a foot or hand treatment the “AromaTouch” way.
This treatment is a great introduction to the power of essential oils, showing they are more than just a “nice” smell. For example one client with RSI in both thumbs for the last two years used Deep Blue Soothing Blend, was amazed that within an hour all pain/discomfort disappeared and has not returned since July 2015. I do seem to have quite a few positive reactions particularly in connection to thumbs, wrists and arms. Obviously I can’t claim I can “fix” anything but people experience whatever they experience, they feel for themselves and make their own minds up as to whether something works for them or not. (Just to add that the Deep Blue blend is one of the AromaTouch Technique oils, applied for the calming of pain and inflammation).
Feedback and reactions:
I felt so relaxed, I went off somewhere and didn’t want to come back. I loved the tingling I could feel afterwards on my feet and neck. Very relaxed afterwards. I’d been having a vivid recurring dream night after night and this lovely treatment broke the cycle for me. Thank you!Jane
Fell asleep during the treatment, deeply relaxed. I had the best night’s sleep afterwards and good sleep the night after – have been very stressed for several weeks so this was just perfect. Sue
I find it hard to relax and usually talk through a treatment but this one made me doze off after a while. I was surprised how much the muscles down my spine had let go after the first pressure movement, I anticipated the next time this movement happened it would still be tight but the tension had just gone, quite surprising. I do not sleep well and my family are always on my mind and this gave me a break from all the things I think about. I slept so well that night, best night’s sleep in ages. Clare
This treatment made me relax like I’ve never done before and gave me a good night sleep like I’ve never had before. I slept so deeply, quite incredible. Sarah
