Here is some information about what the AromaTouch™ Technique actually is about!
The AromaTouch™ technique is a specific form of holistic healing developed by Dr. David Hill to help assist the balance of the body (homeostasis), and wellbeing, in the person receiving the treatment. The treatment takes approximately 45 minutes, and it addresses health issues caused by stress, toxicity within the body, inflammation and autonomic imbalance by applying specific essential oils within an aromatherapy massage treatment. That is just the short of it though, there is a lot more to it and the benefits it brings, as you progress through this explanation of the treatment will discover a certain amount of that depth. The key to the whole treatment being the balance it brings to the body and mind. The key to the whole treatment being the balance it brings to the body and mind, i.e. homeostasis.
Why is homeostasis the key in AromaTouch™ Technique?
Essentially the state of homeostasis is one of balance and stability. The issue for many people is that life can be quite imbalanced, through work, relationships, financial problems and a variety other mental and emotional factors. In addition to that there are physical factors, toxicity within food and drink from chemicals, pollution in the air we breathe, and various other factors. Generally for most people, especially when living in cities and towns, life lacks balance as comes from nature. The toxicity that humans have introduced cycling back to effectively poison us on a variety of levels.
The treatment was developed to induce homeostasis so that we can heal our bodies naturally and with relative ease. As many know detoxifying helps us to heal as the body moves into a smoother energetic flow when it is clean and clear. As chemicals and toxicity are released the body and mind can refocus energy into healing tissues effectively and with greater ease.
So through using essential oils which promote the cleansing of the body of toxic elements, including stress, and other factors which inhibit healing you become able to achieve a point of natural balance and stability, i.e. homeostasis, which enables you to heal yourself more effectively. Hence the goal of the technique and the treatment being that state.
What happens during a treatment?
The treatment is carried out in specific stages by a certified practitioner. Each stage has its own particular essential oils. Each essential oil being applied as part of an aromatherapy massage, with specific hand movements and flows to aid in achievement of the best results possible. With each pairing of oils, 8 in total with 4 pairing and distinct stages as a result, your body and mind are taken through cycles that aid you to cleanse, rebuild and heal.
Important Note: Whilst many aromatherapists may have issue with the number of essential oils, and subsequently their volume too; 8 pairings at 3 to 4 drops each, thus around 24 to 32 drops of essential oil applied during the treatment. This technique has been in use by a great many practitioners for many years, as such with thousands of sessions being carried out, and has been demonstrated time and time again to yield very good results.
