8 essential oils are used in the AromaTouch technique to reduce and eliminate the impact of systemic constraints on our overall health.  Applying the oils with the AromaTouch technique has been shown to help enhance systemic benefits and help increase feelings of overall health and wellbeing.  I like to say that it is like a "reset" button for your nervous system.

How AromaTouch Can Help You

Environmental factors can have a negative impact on overall health and wellbeing, disturbing homeostasis - the balance our bodies need to function optimally. Such challenges, even when they do not immediately result in disease, cause our bodies to function below optimal levels.  These include the following:

*Stress: Emotional distress, career choices, family discord, financial worries and the like elevate stress levels. Clinical studies have linked high stress and chronic stress to numerous negative health conditions.

*Toxic Insult: Exposure to a wide array of toxic insults including disease-causing pathogens, hormone and pesticide contaminated food products, and increasing levels of free radicals from pollution, foods and cleaners contributes to rises in the occurrence of varying illnesses.

*Inflammation: The increased consumption of foods with pro-inflammatory components (foods high in polyunsaturated vegetable oils such as sunflower, safflower, corn and peanut) together with high carbohydrate, low protein diets contribute to increased inflammation in body systems. Stress, with its accompanying imbalance of cortisol, can also contribute to inflammation, as do various and increasingly prevalent immunological dysfunctions.  Studies increasingly show links between fatal diseases and inflammation.

*Autonomic Imbalance: The opposite of homeostasis, an imbalance of the autonomic nervous system (aka the ANS or visceral nervous system) can negatively impact health in a number of ways.  Restoring the body's homeostasis can reduce the physiological impact of stressors on the body.
