New to Totally Sound Health is massage using the AromaTouch Technique, 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.
The AromaTouch technique involves the application of 2 essential oils (or essential oil blends) in each of four steps to bring the body back to a balanced state; stress management, immune support, inflammatory response, and homoeostasis.
Emotional distress, career choices, family discord, financial worries, lack of rest, and the like all elevate stress levels in the body. Ongoing elevated stress levels have been shown in clinical studies to contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease, depression, insomnia, and ulcers. Stress also negatively impacts the immune system, leaving it increasingly vulnerable to pathogens.
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. These are applied first to help reduce chronic stress.
The immune system comprises a large network of organs and varied cell types, carrying out a range of interrelated functions. The normal functioning of the immune system can be easily hampered by a number of factors, particularly toxins in our environment, diet, and medications.
The essential oil Melaleuca (tea tree oil) and oil blend OnGuard are applied next to strengthen the immune system.
The inflammatory response occurs when body tissues are injured by bacteria, trauma, toxins, heat, or any other cause. The increased consumption of foods high in polyunsaturated vegetable oils and trans-fats together with high carbohydrate and low protein consumption contribute to increased inflammation in body tissues. Unchecked inflammation leads to chronic illness.
Inflammation is settled with the AromaTouch and Deep Blue essential oil blends.
Homoeostasis relates to balance in the autonomic nervous system. Restoring homeostasis can reduce the physiological impact of stressors on the body.
Wild Orange and Peppermint essential oils are layered together to help bring balance back to the nervous system.
