Apr 04, 2017 01:07AM ● By Mae McDonnell

Just as massage therapy has gone from being a luxury used for relaxation to a wellness technique used for its health benefits, essential oils have moved from the strictly aesthetic realm into the world of complementary medicine. The AromaTouch Technique, developed by David K. Hill, DC, chief medical officer and chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board at doTerra International, helps create an uplifted, relaxed mood, soothes muscles and joints and revitalizes energy, according to most recipients.

With the AromaTouch Technique, strategic application is as important as the selection of essential oils used. There is a difference between simply rubbing the oils onto the skin and applying them in the way prescribed by the AromaTouch Technique, which directly affects well-being. The technique follows specific guidelines and instructions for both dosage and application that make it a safe, gentle, effective way to convey the full benefits of essential oils.

The doTerra oils used in the AromaTouch Technique were selected both for their individual aromatic properties and for their powerful benefits when combined. Only one or two drops of the required eight oils are applied, in precise order and according to an exact regimen of techniques. When the AromaTouch guidelines are properly followed, anyone can benefit without the concern of overwhelming the body.
