2. Why do we need AromaTouch?
Most individuals encounter factors in daily life, from both their internal and external environment, that have negative effects on their overall health and wellbeing.
These negative disturbances cause an imbalance in homeostasis, the natural balance of body systems and health. Even if this do not directly result in disease, cause our bodies to function at a sub-optimal level. The AromaTouch™ Technique works to restore homeostasis, and minimize the impact of these factors.
The four systemic constants that most often impair homeostasis are
Studies have revealed that over time high-stress levels can contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease, depression, insomnia, and ulcers. Stress also negatively impacts the immune system, leaving it increasingly vulnerable to pathogens. Stress causes the body to increase its production of serotonin, which in elevated levels can destroy white blood cells, resulting in a weakened immune system.
While many essential oils have been proven to counteract the negative effects of stress, both the essential oil blend Balance and the essential oil Lavender have specific calming effects on body systems.
- Toxic Insult
The normal functioning of the immune system can be easily hampered by a number of toxins: environmental, dietary, medical interventions, etc. Exposure to a wide array of toxic insults including disease-causing pathogens, hormone or pesticide-contaminated food products, increasing levels of free-radical pollution, and overexposure to radiation all contribute to the weakening of the immune system.
The increased consumption of foods with pro-inflammatory components (foods high in polyunsaturated vegetable oils and trans-fats) together with high carbohydrate and low protein consumption contribute to increased inflammation in body tissues. Stress with its accompanying imbalance of cortisol can also contribute to chronic uncontrolled inflammation and various immunological dysfunctions. Studies increasingly show a direct link between chronic illness, inflammation, and fatal disease.
- Autonomic Imbalance
An imbalance of the autonomic nervous system (the opposite of homeostasis), can negatively impact our health in a number of ways. There is evidence that autonomic imbalance can lead to high blood pressure, cardiovascular morbidity and even mortality. Autonomic imbalances can result from a number of sources, the major ones are mentioned above: stress, decreased immunity, and inflammation. Restoring homeostasis, or autonomic balance, can reduce the physiological impact of stressors on the body.
3. Are you a Practitioner?
Whether you run a massage-studio, renting space for your massage table, work in a SPA or any other profession where you treat clients, AromaTouch can fit perfectly into your business.
As an addition to your existing range of treatments, you could offer Aromatouch as a complementary treatment and have a more holistic look at the client’s challenges. The investment of taking the course is made up just after a few treatments.
Everyone can benefit from receiving an AromaTouch treatment and just the reduction in stress levels itself is well worth it for people.
Just imagine your client coming into your practice and you already have the diffuser running with the oils that you know he/she needs. That’s customer care! Check here for upcoming AromaTouch classes or if you just want to get some oils and a diffuser, check here.
