“The AromaTouch Technique was developed to maximize the benefits of essential oils. Its powerful benefits can be effectively delivered equally well by both the novice essential oil enthusiast and the professional health practitioner.”
Dr. David K. Hill
The AromaTouch Technique® is the application of essential oils to the back and feet. This technique combines the unique benefits of human touch with the power of essential oils to create an overall wellness experience. The essential oils used in the AromaTouch Technique were chosen for their individual and combined aromatic properties.
The Science of Aroma and Touch?
This technique is a combination of two of the senses, used in conjunction to give an individual a powerful essential oil experience.
Aroma is an important component of the AromaTouch Technique because it can instantaneously prompt powerful responses. As research has exhibited, activating your olfactory system can direct your mind to specific memories, relax you, and help create a close connection with whomever you are sharing the 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), which has stress-relieving effects on the body6. Furthermore, the person initiating the contact may experience the same response as the person on the receiving end.
The AromaTouch Technique is a scientific approach to combining smell, tactile communication, and the power of CPTG® essential oils to improve well-being.

What to expect?
The session takes around 45 minutes to an hour. For the first time, an initial discussion will take place before the massage and oils are applied, so the first session will take a little longer.
The client will be on a massage bed, face down and covered with blankets to be as comfortable as possible. Oils will be applied throughout the massage, and calming music will play.
Oils are applied and massaged onto the back with movements onto the head and feet or if that isn't appropriate for the client, the hands can be massaged.
At the end of the session it will be important to drink lots of water.
Essential Oils used
The essential oils used in the AromaTouch Technique are doTERRA Balance®, Lavender, Tea Tree (Melaleuca), doTERRA On Guard®, AromaTouch®, Deep Blue®, Wild Orange, and Peppermint. As Dr. Hill developed the AromaTouch Technique, he tried many different combinations of essential oils to create positive benefits and the perfect aromatic profile. These eight oils, as they are layered onto the body, are able to meet both of these important requirements.
