Aromatherapy Touch (Raindrop) Technique

The practice of aromatherapy includes the use of essential oils for physical and emotional health and well being. It is often called Essential Oil Therapy.  Essential oils are applied in a skilled and controlled way as part of a hands-on, caring therapy that is used to induce relaxation, to increase energy, to reduce the effects of stress and to restore lost balance to mind, body and spirit.

The Aromatherapy Touch technique is a powerful technique using essential oils. It combines several modalities to bring balance and transformation, and to support body systems on a physical and emotionally level.

What is an Aromatherapy Touch session?

This technique uses a clinical approach to applying therapeutic grade essential oils to the body, specifically the spine, neck and feet. It combines several holistic techniques, creating for the body a synergistic effect.  Essential oils applied along energy lines and on reflexology points stimulate homeostasis and balance in the body.  Aromatherapy Touch improves wellbeing by reducing physical and emotional stressors and supports healthy autonomic function. 

Specific essential oils and blends are used to promote relaxation and stress relief, offer immune support, decrease pain and inflammation and elevate mood.  Additional oil(s) may be used for an individual's personal needs to create balance. The Aromatherapy Touch technique is designed  to balance body systems and function and stimulate the body and it's energy centers.  The stimulation of the feet, for example, is akin to reflexology, as each vita flex point of the foot is gently massaged.  These points are presumed to correlate to specific areas of the body.  `

What Are The Benefits of an Aromatherapy Touch session?

Aromatherapy Touch Technique is a gentle massage-like technique that will maximizes the benefits of each essential oil or oil blend used. The aromatic compounds in essential oils are so small in molecular size that, when applied, they work very quickly on your autonomic nervous system. This technique is beneficial to all, but those with chronic issues may gain benefit through the application of this technique.  This technique is very gently stimulating and therefore is very suitable for those that experience chronic pain.

Do You Offer Aromatherapy Touch Specifically on Hands and/or Feet?

Yes.  The Aromatherapy Hand Technique uses five specific and different movements to effectively improve absorbtion of the essential oils while encouraging relaxation.  The oils I choose are targeted to the specific individual receiving the hand therapy.  The technique takes about 20 minutes and is great for clients that are short on time but would still like the impactful benefits of a therapeutic essential oil experience.  Hand therapy can be combined with a full Aromatherapy Touch session. 

A similar technique is performed on the feet in a condensed fashion during a full Aromatherapy Touch session; however, a full foot session can be performed on the feet in as little as 20 minutes.  A wonderful combination is the Aromatherapy Touch Hand and Foot Session.  

The Aromatherapy Touch Technique can be especially beneficial for those with chronic issues such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Rheumatism
  • Gout
  • Carpel Tunnel
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Neurological Disease
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Pulmonary Disease
  • Back Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
