Complementary Therapies

aromatouch-1024x605Complementary Therapy supports a person’s health through a holistic means of bringing the body, mind, emotions, and spirit into wholeness, balance and harmony.  As a Holistic Nurse, I believe healing and caring must be approached holistically and the biological, psychological, emotional, spiritual and environmental aspects of health and illness are equally important.  The value of complementary therapy benefits people of all ages by bringing all five (5) aspects into balance; however, this is especially effective for people with chronic, debilitating illnesses for which conventional medicine has few, if any answers.

 Aromatouch Technique

Aromatouch™  Technique is a clinical approach to applying Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade ™ (CPTG) essential oils along energy meridians and visceral contact points of the back and feet to help balance sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems of the body.  In short, the Aromatouch™ Technique improves wellbeing by reducing physical and emotional stressors and by supporting healthy autonomic function.  As a Certified Aromatouch™ Practitioner, Chris incorporates this complementary therapy which includes four primary steps designed to minimize systemic stressors to autonomic balance.  Each step includes the application of two essential oils or essential oil blends specifically formulated to support as a means to support her clients’ healthy emotional and physiological functions for well being.  The technique requires 30 minutes per application.  Applications are by appointment only, so contact Chris today to schedule your 30 minute session.

 Symphony of the Cells (SC)

“Symphony of the Cells” is a hands-on massage technique for applying essential oils utilizing a collection of 12 different protocols that can help with hundreds of illnesses and conditions. The application for these protocols is very simple and effective; creating harmony physically, emotionally and spiritually within the body.  Each of the 12 protocols focuses on a specific system of the body allowing for detailed targeting of the symptoms and underlying causes of many ailments and illnesses.

What is SC? 
SC is very simple yet profound in its effect.  Certain essential oils are dropped along the spine and feet of the recipient, and lightly massaged in. Some protocols call for the recipient to inhale each oil, some call for the recipient to rest under a hot compress.   

Who should receive SC?
Anyone and everyone (unless contra-indicated!) — SC protocols address the support of various body systems: Respiratory, Digestive, Hormone, Neurological, Lymphatic, Osteo. Additionally there are protocols for support in case of Infectious Disease, Inflammation, and Chronic Conditions. 

 How often and for how many sessions should I receive SC?
Generally SC is most effective when received every 3 days. In some cases, two different protocols will be alternated. The number of sessions varies with each case — sometimes one is sufficient, most of the time a set of several is needed until results are achieved.

I usually receive AromaTouch. How is SC different?
The oils in SC are more focused to target specific body systems and conditions.
