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. Such challenges, even when they do not directly result in illness, cause our bodies to function at a sub-optimal level. The AromaTouch™ Technique works to restore homeostasis, and minimize the negative impact of these factors. Four systemic constants that most often impair homeostasis are:
Stress Emotional distress, career choices, family discord, financial worries, lack of rest, etc. all elevate stress levels in the body. Elevated stress levels, maintained over time, have been shown in clinical studies to cause negative consequences to health. 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, a neurotransmitter in charge of vital nervous system functions. Elevated serotonin levels are harmful to the body’s immunity. While serotonin works to monitor emotional and nerve health at normal levels, at elevated levels it can destroy white blood cells, resulting in a weakened immune system. Stress also causes increased levels of cortisol and epinephrine in body, further weakening immune response. 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 Immunity depends on the ability of the body to produce effective white blood cells, complementary proteins, and other cell and body barriers. The immune system comprises a large network of organs and varied cell types, carrying out a range of interrelated functions. Its interconnectedness leaves it very vulnerable to toxins. The normal functioning of the immune system can be easily hampered by a number of factors: 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.
Inflammation The inflammatory response occurs when body tissues are injured by bacteria, trauma, toxins, heat, or any other cause. 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. Inflammation is also harmful to the body’s autonomic balance because of its pain inducing effects.
Autonomic Imbalance The opposite of homeostasis, an imbalance of the autonomic nervous system (also known as the ANS, or visceral nervous system) can negatively impact health in a number of ways. Recent research has shown a direct link between autonomic imbalance and hypertension (high blood pressure). There is also evidence that autonomic imbalance can lead to 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.

"When Jennifer mentioned she would be offering a new therapy called AromaTouch, I immediately scheduled an appointment, though I had never heard of it. After studying Color Therapeutics, of which plant extracts and flower essences are a huge part, I know how powerful and healing these gifts from nature are. This is not a massage, however I found myself relaxing on a profound level. The oils that were used during the treatment were blissfully fragrant. It was almost as if I hadn't realized how thirsty I was, then was offered delicious cool water and was able to drink until I wasn't thirsty any more. I particularly enjoyed the oils being applied to my feet. After the treatment was over and I left the treatment room to sit with Jennifer for a few minutes, I felt as if previous to the treatment, I had been bound tightly by huge, thick rubber bands all around my body,(though I didn't know I had felt like this), then during the treatment they were cut away and my energy field was released and expanded tremendously. I have really never felt anything quite like it. It was slightly disorienting at first but that feeling dissipated fairly quickly as my energy began to feel more integrated than it has in quite a while. An interesting and unexpected result of the AromaTouch treatment is that my symptoms of Ocular Rosacea instantly disappeared. It has only been 3 days, but so far I am symptom free. I highly recommend this wonder therapeutic treatment to everyone and I will definitely have this treatment on a fairly regular basis.."
