The dōTERRA ArōmaTouch Technique 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. Developed by Dr. David Hill, a leading expert in integrative medicine and therapeutic applications of essential oils, the ArōmaTouch Technique improves well-being by reducing physical and emotional stressors and by supporting healthy autonomic function. The technique is simple and intuitive and uses dōTERRA CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils for an unparalleled grounding experience.
AromaTouch is a light touch application which will enhance essential oil activity, stimulate known body meridian and energy zones while balancing bodily systems and functions. It can help you relax and calm muscle tension.
The natural balance of our body systems and health is challenged on a daily basis by negative factors from both our external and internal environments, influencing our overall health and wellbeing. This imbalance in homeostasis causes our bodies to function at less than optimal level. The AromaTouch Technique works to restore homeostasis, and minimize the impact of those negative factors.
The four SYSTEMIC CONTSTANTS that most often impair homeostasis are:
Stress causes the body to increase its production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter in charge of vital nervous system functions. Serotonin works to monitor emotional and nerve health at normal levels, however, elevated levels can destroy white blood cells, which weakens the immune system. Stress also causes an increased level of cortisol and epinephrine in the body, further weakening the immune response. Elevated stress levels over time can lead to the development of illness and chronic disease.
The normal function of the immune system can become impaired by environmental factors such as disease-causing pathogens, contaminated food (pesticides and hormones), free-radical pollution, over exposure to radiation, medical interventions, etc. A compromised immune system affects the ability of the body to produce effective white blood cells.
The body’s inflammatory response is triggered when the body tissues are injured by bacteria, trauma, toxins, heat, or other causes. Inflammation can also occur from poor dietary habits, and stress. Inflammation negatively affects autonomic balance.
An imbalance of the autonomic nervous system disrupts the body’s homeostasis, which can result from stress, decreased immunity, and inflammation. Restoring homeostasis can reduce the physiological impact of those stressors on the body.
The ArōmaTouch Technique includes four primary steps designed to minimize systematic 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. The technique requires approximately 45 minutes.
