Hot Stone Aroma Touch is really reflexology that feels like a massage and some say it feels even better. The process is 8 doTERRA essential oils are placed along your back and feet with reflexology techniques in a 4 step process.
What is Reflexology?
According to the American Reflexology Certification Board, "Foot and hand reflexology is a scientific art based on the premise that there are zones and reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all body parts. The physical act of applying specific pressures using thumb, finger and hand techniques results in stress reduction, which causes a physiological change in the body."
In reflexology the feet, hands, ears, head, face and other parts represent a microcosm of the body. Palpation or pressure applied to that body part helps to achieve balance in the body by bringing organ and gland function to a state or normalization or balance called homeostasis.
Reflexology therapeutically reduces stress and tension throughout the whole body. Consequently, blood and lymph circulation improves, nerve supply to the cells is improved, and the release of toxins from the body is increased. These physiological benefits facilitate improvement in the body's assimilation of nutrients, elimination of wastes, and the functioning of it's immune system. In general, reflexology facilitates optimum functioning of all the systems of the body. It is in these ways that reflexology supports the body in its process of healing itself and maintaining optimum health.
We offer add-on reflexology which is about 15 to most of our sessions as well as a full 45 - 50 minute session. This is performed primarily on the feet and hands.
The AromaTouch Technique – Healing Through Homeostasis And Oils
At Rejuva Wellness, we offer Aroma Touch with Hot Stones and will also perform it without hot stones upon request. The hot stones help you achieve a deeper relaxation and allow the oils to penetrate deeper. You can also add-on a 15 minute foot reflexology to the Aroma Touch therapy.
The dōTERRA ArōmaTouch Technique is a clinical approach using reflexology techniques 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 ArōmaTouch Technique improves well-being by reducing physical and emotional stressors and by supporting healthy autonomic function. The technique is simple and intuitive and uses dōTERRA CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils for an unparalleled grounding experience.
The main goal of Aroma Touch Therapy is to create a balance in your mind and body.
The ArōmaTouch Technique includes four primary steps designed to minimize systematic 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 40 minutes per application, and multiple applications can be serviced with one set of dōTERRA essential oils.
Why Homeostasis Is The Key To AromaTouch
Essentially the state of homeostasis is one of balance and stability. The issue preceding it for many people is that life is often imbalanced, through work, relationships, money issues and a variety of mental and emotional factors life goes out of balance and stability and calm disappear. In addition to that there are physical factors, toxicity within food and drink from chemicals, pollution in the air we breathe, and various other factors. Generally for most people, especially when living in cities and towns, life lacks balance as comes from nature. The toxicity that humans have introduced cycling back to effectively poison us on a variety of levels.
The treatment was developed to induce homeostasis so that we can heal our bodies naturally and with relative ease. As many know detoxifying helps us to heal as the body moves into a smoother energetic flow when it is clean and clear. As chemicals and toxicity are released the body and mind can refocus energy into healing tissues effectively and with greater ease.
So through using essential oils which promote the cleansing of the body of toxic elements, including stress, and other factors which inhibit healing you become able to achieve a point of natural balance and stability, i.e. homeostasis, which enables you to heal yourself more effectively. Hence the goal of the technique and the treatment being that state.
