Introducing the Aroma Touch Technique A Clinical Approach to Essential Oil Application
What is the Aroma Touch™ Technique?
AromaTouch 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 AromaTouch Technique improves well-being by reducing physical and emotional stressors and by supporting healthy autonomic function. The technique is simple and intuitive and I uses doTerra’s CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ essential oils for an unparalleled grounding experience for recipients.
Aroma Touch™ Procedure
The Aroma Touch Technique includes four primary steps designed to minimize systemic 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 30 minutes per application. Multiple applications are very beneficial using essential oils. Most individuals encounter factors in daily life, from both their internal and external environment, that have negative effects on their overall health and well-being These negative disturbances cause an imbalance in homeostasis, the natural balance of body systems and health. Homeostasis is the natural state of Such challenges, even when they do not directly result in disease, cause our bodies to function at a sub-optimal level. The Aroma Touch™ Technique works to restore homeostasis, and minimize the impact of these factors. Four systemic constants that most often impair homeostasis are:
- Toxic Insult
- Autonomic Imbalance
Emotional distress, career choices, family discord, financial worries, lack of rest, etc. all elevate stress levels in the body. Elevated stress levels, maintained over time, have been shown in clinical studies to cause negative consequences to health. Studies have revealed that over time high stress levels can contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease, depression, insomnia, and ulcers. Stress also negatively impacts the immune system, leaving it increasingly vulnerable to pathogens. Stress causes the body to increase its production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter in charge of vital nervous system functions. Elevated serotonin levels are harmful to the body’s immunity. While serotonin works to monitor emotional and nerve health at normal levels, at elevated levels it can destroy white blood cells, resulting in a weakened immune system. Stress also causes increased levels of cortisol and epinephrine in body, further weakening immune response. While many essential oils have been proven to counteract the negative effects of stress, both the essential.
Immunity depends on the ability of the body to produce effective white blood cells, complementary proteins, and other cell and body barriers. The immune system comprises a large network of organs and varied cell types, carrying out a range of interrelated functions. Its inter-connectedness leaves it very vulnerable to toxins. The normal functioning of the immune system can be easily hampered by a number of factors: environmental, dietary, medical interventions, etc. Exposure to a wide array of toxic insults including disease-causing pathogens, hormone or pesticide contaminated food products, increasing levels of free-radical pollution, and overexposure to radiation all contribute to the weakening of 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 with pro-inflammatory components (foods high in polyunsaturated vegetable oils and trans-fats) together with high carbohydrate and low protein consumption contribute to increased inflammation in body tissues. Stress with its accompanying imbalance of cortisol, can also contribute to chronic uncontrolled inflammation and various immunological dysfunctions. Studies increasingly show a direct link between chronic illness, inflammation, and fatal disease. Inflammation is also harmful to the body’s autonomic balance because of its pain inducing effects.
The opposite of homeostasis, an imbalance of the autonomic nervous system (also known as the ANS, or visceral nervous system) can negatively impact health in a number of ways. Recent research has shown a direct link between autonomic imbalance and hypertension (high blood pressure). There is also evidence that autonomic imbalance can lead to cardiovascular morbidity and even mortality. Autonomic imbalances can result from a number of sources, the major ones are mentioned above: stress, decreased immunity, and inflammation. Restoring homeostasis, or autonomic balance, can reduce the physiological impact of stressors on the body.

My AromaTouch Session today with Lynn was by far the most relaxing and stress relieving treatment of anything else I’ve tried! Lynn has that healing touch, to be sure! It felt amazing–smelled amazing–and I feel like a million! I cannot recommend it enough! Try a session with Lynn–you’ll love it!

I’ve been using a lot of holistic modalities over the years, yet one of my favorite is AromaTouch with Lynn Davies. I’ve taken many AromaTouch sessions with Lynn and absolutely love them. Lynn has made every session an amazing relaxing experience. I get so relaxed that once I spontaneously had a past life recall and healed my past experience, meanwhile, still being pampered by Lynn. Massage can be uncomfortable and painful at times, while AromaTouch never. Yet, AromaTouch is very beneficial for our mental, emotional and physical well-being. I highly recommend Lynn and her AromaTouch sessions! If you want to be pampered and have health benefits at the same time, call Lynn Davies.
