Developed by Dr. David Hill, a leading expert in integrative medicine and therapeutic applications of essential oils, the AromaTouch Technique improves wellbeing by reducing physical and emotional stressors and by supporting healthy autonomic function.
The technique uses dōTERRA's CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils for an unparalleled grounding experience for recipients. The AromaTouch™ Procedure incorporates simple hand techniques with the power of essential oils to create a powerful whole body wellness experience. It seeks to address four systemic constants that are present in daily life and which may serve as limiting factors in health: stress, immunity, the inflammatory response, and autonomic imbalance.

From Stress Management to Auto-Immune System Diseases.
