dōTERRA’s AromaTouch Technique is a bodywork technique that utilizes therapeutic grade essential oils which are applied to the spine, neck, and shoulders in light, feathery strokes. This technique was developed to serve people with neuropathy or who were in great pain, unable to tolerate the touch of even a light massage.
Maximizing the benefits of essential oils along energy meridians and reflexology points of the back, feet and hands helps to balance the Nervous system and various other systems of the body. Because aromatic compounds in essential oils are so small in molecular size, they quickly start working on your autonomic nervous system as they are applied on spine , hands and feet.
AROMATOUCH TECHNIQUE FOCUSES ON 4 ASPECTS OF HEALTH
Developed by Dr. David Hill, a leading expert in integrative medicine and therapeutic applications of essential oils, the AromaTouch Technique improves wellbeing by reducing physical and emotional stressors and by supporting healthy autonomic function.
The hormone cortisol released when under stress wreaks havoc on your system and changes your body's chemistry and is a contributing factor of inflammation.
Disease causing pathogens, hormone and pesticide contaminated food products in addition to free radicals from pollution break down the body's defenses.
Foods high in polyunsaturates along with high intake of carbohydrates and low protein as well as the stress hormone cortisol, all contribute to inflammation. Studies have shown links between fatal diseases and inflammation.
Restoring the body's homeostasis can reduce the physiological impact of stressors on the body by enhancing the autonomic nervous system which helps us rest and digest.
dōTERRA’s AromaTouch Technique utilises eight oils that promote relaxation and stress relief, offer immune support, decrease pain and inflammation and elevate mood. Through a specific application technique the oils stimulate homeostatis in the body via the energy or meridian lines.
Balance Blend - Grounding the body's energy,
Lavender - Helps relax and calm.
Tea Tree oil (Melaleuca) - Provides immune support.
Peppermint -Eases breathing and aids digestion.
Wild Orange - Energizes and revitalizes
Aromatouch Blend - Relaxes muscles and calms tension
Deep Blue Blend - Eases achy joints and sore muscles
On Guard Blend - Supports healthy immune function
The Aromatouch Technique has been shown to have systemic benefits in treating chronic pain, neuropathy, and other diseases as well as improving overall health and well being.
The AromaTouch Technique is 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, and Auto-immune system disease.
The Effects Of Aromatherapy In Relieving Symptoms Related To Job Stress Among Nurses.
"Workplace-related stress has become today's most serious occupational hazard. Aromatherapy is a simple, convenient and non-invasive method of stress relief... Therefore, this study was to examine the effectiveness of lavender oil inhalation in reducing job stress-related symptoms among nurses. The 53 nurses in the experimental group pinned small bottles containing 3% lavender oil on the clothes of their right chests, whereas 57 participants in the control group pinned bottles with no lavender oil. Aromatherapy was shown to be effective in the reduction of the number of stress symptoms for 3 or 4 days. The stress symptoms of the experimental group decreased from 6.1 to 2.8 after aromatherapy was carried out (P = 0.126, 0.159, 0.035 and 0.026). This represented a significant decrease in stress, whereas the stress symptoms in the control group increased from 5.6 to 5.8."

Protective Essential Oil Attenuates Influenza Virus Infection: An In Vitro Study In MDCK Cells.
"We studied a commercial essential oil blend, On Guard™, and evaluated its ability in modulating influenza virus, A/PR8/34 (PR8), infection in Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells... Influenza virus infectivity was suppressed by essential oil treatment in a dose-dependent manner; the number of nascent viral particles released from MDCK cells was reduced by 90% and by 40% when virus was treated with 1:4,000 and 1:6,000 dilutions of the oil, respectively. Oil treatment of the virus also decreased direct infection of the cells as the number of infected MDCK cells decreased by 90% and 45% when virus was treated with 1:2,000 and 1:3,000 dilutions of the oil, respectively."

Effect Of Inhaled Essential Oils On Mental Exhaustion And Moderate Burnout: A Small Pilot Study.
"The objective of this pilot study was to determine the effectiveness of a mixture of essential oils (peppermint, basil, and helichrysum) on mental exhaustion, or moderate burnout (ME/MB) using a personal inhaler... This was a randomized, controlled, double-blind pilot study. Data were collected 3 times a day for 3 weeks (Monday-Friday). The first week was baseline for both groups, the second week was intervention (aromatherapy or placebo), and the third week was washout... While both groups had a reduction in perception of ME/MB, the aromatherapy group had a much greater reduction... The results suggest that inhaling essential oils may reduce the perceived level of mental fatigue/burnout. Further research is warranted."

Effect Of Sweet Orange Aroma On Experimental Anxiety In Humans.
"The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential anxiolytic effect of sweet orange (Citrus sinensis) aroma in healthy volunteers submitted to an anxiogenic situation... Forty (40) male volunteers were allocated to five different groups for the inhalation of sweet orange essential oil (test aroma: 2.5, 5, or 10 drops), tea tree essential oil (control aroma: 2.5 drops), or water (nonaromatic control: 2.5 drops). Immediately after inhalation, each volunteer was submitted to a model of anxiety, the video-monitored version of the Stroop Color-Word Test (SCWT)... Unlike the control groups, the individuals exposed to the test aroma (2.5 and 10 drops) presented a lack of significant alterations (p>0.05) in state-anxiety, subjective tension and tranquillity levels throughout the anxiogenic situation, revealing an anxiolytic activity of sweet orange essential oil... Although more studies are needed to find out the clinical relevance of aromatherapy for anxiety disorders, the present results indicate an acute anxiolytic activity of sweet orange aroma, giving some scientific support to its use as a tranquilizer by aromatherapists."
