Touch is the first sense that we develop when we are born.
The right kind of touch can lower blood pressure, cortisol levels, and heart rate.
The AromaTouch Hand Technique uses light, consistent touch that creates a beneficial response in the recipient.
The AromaTouch Hand Technique is a simple and effective way to promote well-being and build powerful connections through the experience of essential oils. Plus, it can be given almost anywhere: a plane, the workplace, a park bench, the café, before bedtime, you name it! The movements in this technique are simple, yet they deliver a powerful wellness experience.
Along with the emotional component, gentle touch can also influence physiological responses in ways other communication simply cannot. Unlike massage, which involves powerful hand movements that are focused on specific outcomes (breakdown of muscular adhesions, stimulating the central nervous system, aiding recovery, etc.), the gentleness of an AromaTouch Technique has a much different spectrum of benefits. Tender touch almost instantaneously activates the release of oxytocin (often referred to as the “love” or “hug” hormone), decreases heart rate and blood pressure, and has a beneficial influence on multiple other stress-sensitive systems. Furthermore, the person initiating the contact generally experiences the same response as the person on the receiving end. Unlike a massage, the benefits of giving an AromaTouch Technique to someone can be just as powerful as receiving one.
