MINT HILL, NC – Touch Therapy 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.
Along with the emotional component, gentle touch can also influence physiological responses in ways other communication simply cannot. The gentleness of Aroma Touch Therapy has a 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.
The Aroma touch technique is an essential oil application applied to the back and the feet to create a feeling of overall wellness. It helps reduce stress and feelings of tension with six powerfully relaxing essential oils.
