AromaTouch is a beautiful technique, whereby essential oils are applied to the back and feet to create a feeling of overall wellbeing.  It is a clinical approach to applying essential oils along the energy meridians and visceral contact points of the back and feet to help balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems of the body.  It was developed by Dr David Hill, a leading expert in integrative medicine and therapeutic applications of essential oils.  The Aroma Touch Technique improves well-being by reducing physical and emotional stressors by supporting a healthy autonomic function.



















They provide both healthy or damaged cells in our body with oxygen and nutrients and even protect and repair our DNA. Many people use aromatherapy to promote a healthy mind, body and spirit.


Research has shown that smell is the most acute of all our senses and has a powerful influence on our bodies and minds.  The scents omitted from essential oils are believed to activate olfactory nerve cells in the nasal cavity, which then passes impulses to the limbic system.  This is the area of the brain associated with emotions and memory.  Inhaling the appropriate fragrance can reduce stress, lift a depression, hasten a good night's sleep, soothe your soul, or give you more energy. It is already helping office workers stay alert while doing repetitive mental tasks and even hospitals are experimenting with using aromatherapy to help patients relax so that other healing modalities can do their job. Massaging aromatic oils into your skin is another way to benefit from aromatherapy because essential oils, the compounds responsible for a plant's fragrance, offer a multitude of healing benefits in addition to their individual scents.


Aromatherapy isn’t aiming to deal with the disease but rather to release the wellbeing, harmony and improved mental and physical health of the person.


I may work different to other aromatherapists, but as I’ve studied healing I prefer the client to choose the essential oils because on a subconscious level the body will know exactly what it needs.

Below are some examples of aromatherapy recipes that work - note to choose the essential oils and carrier oil your scent buds like.

The definition of 'Aroma’ means a fragrance or a sweet smell and ‘therapy’ means a treatment designed to cure.  Aromatherapy is a treatment that uses plant oils within the massage, specifically blended to address certain problems or requirements.  It is a holistic treatment, the aim of which is to produce a physical, spiritual, emotional and mental sense of wellbeing through the inhalation and massage of essential oils.  It's like when one takes a whiff of any spice in your kitchen or a bouquet of flowers that in essence is fundamental aromatherapy too.  These oils are extracted from herbs, plants and trees.
