While our journey's may be very different, the underlying truth of our Shared Human Experience remains the same.

Perhaps sharing the epiphanies & realizations of my journey inspire you to realize that underneath it all we are all the same; there is no other.

Aroma Therapy Infused Massage Stress Detox

Physical touch is as important to the AromaTouch Technique as the aroma itself because of its ability to soothe the body and bring people together. While the main purpose of the technique is to apply the oils and provide the recipient with an essential oil experience, the AromaTouch Technique is also about connecting with another person on an emotional level. The connections developed through the AromaTouch Technique form feelings of trust and help the recipient relax.

Fun Facts About Touch:

  • 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 Technique uses light, consistent touch that creates a beneficial response in the recipient.

The AromaTouch Technique is all about creating an emotional connection and the science behind that connection is as validated as it is compelling. Tactile communication is our first form of communication. We begin receiving tactile signals in the womb, and then touch plays a critical role in parent-child relationships before verbal communication is possible. It is, in essence, the first sense we acquire and it is astonishingly effective. In recent studies, researchers have shown that emotional communication is very effective through touch, nearly as effective as words and facial cues. Not only is touch able to communicate the tone of emotion (whether it is positive or negative, intense or subtle), but it may also allow for precise differentiation between types of emotion. With voice and facial cues, we can identify just one or two positive signals that are not confused with each other. Research has exhibited that touch can communicate multiple emotions—love, gratitude, sympathy, fear, anger— with astounding exactness. This effect isn’t just limited to loved ones; another study found that touch communicates emotion nearly as effectively when it occurs between strangers. While our understanding of the mechanisms involved with touch and emotional messaging is still limited, we do know that it can be more effective than even verbal communication in strengthening existing bonds and developing new ones.

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.

Aroma Therapy Infused Massage Offering

As part of our move to less toxic living, a service that Katharine and I are offering to promote the reduction of the toxic effects of stress is with the AromaTouch Technique® (ATT).

According to doTERRA... "The AromaTouch Technique® is the application of essential oil 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."

In order to promote our offering, practice our ATT skills, stir interest, create awareness, and build a client-base... we are offering a completely FREE initial ATT massage session until the end of 2021.

Please contact either Katharine or Daniel; whoever you would feel more comfortable receiving an ATT massage from.

Thinking about Privacy?

Are you tired of the trade-off many have unkowningly made... trading your privacy for free/convenience?

In some cases, the applications we use are sharing more details about us than we realize.  But the issue is actually deeper; that we're using an phone, PC, or tablet with an operating system (OS) that includes data mining and telemetry at it's core... iOS, Windows, or Google/Chrome OS.

Contact me and we can discuss the alternatives and create an action plan to move you forward.

Have you heard of LBRY?

LBRY looks like an interesting alternative to YouTube; however, if you are a YouTube author (and I am understanding correctly) it can link/sync your LBRY created content to your YouTube channel as well.

What I appreciate most about LBRY is in their "freedom" message... "Enjoy the latest content from your favorite creators - as a user, not a product."
