AromaTouch is a technique used to apply pure therapeutic grade essential oils to the body to address stress, toxic insult, inflammatory response, and autonomic imbalance. Oils are applied to the hands, feet, and back following the meridian lines of energy. We use doTerra brand, certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils.
This technique was developed by Dr. David K. Hill, Chief Medical Officer, Chairman Scientific Board, doTerra. Recent studies (including the work of 2004 Nobel Laureate Linda Buck) support the connection between aroma and human emotional response. Numerous studies indicate that aromas can be relaxing, are connected to our emotions, and also evoke physical responses.
"...aroma can induce more than just the detection of odor through the olfactory system. There are many substances which activate both our sense of smell and the somatosensory system. The somatosensory system is a diverse sensory system comprising the receptors and processing centers to produce the sensory modalities such as touch, temperature, proprioception (body position), and nociception (pain)...
Research suggests that exposure to pleasant and sweet aroma is effective for reducing discomfort and increasing tolerance... natural pure aromas like Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils can improve health while synthetic aromas are often damaging."
