AromaTouch Technique Certification Training

AromaTouch Technique Certification Training
AromaTouch Technique is a clinical approach to essential oil application. AromaTouch Technique 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.

The AromaTouch Technique was developed as a systematic way for everyone, novice or professional, to apply the oils and receive an expected, beneficial result.

After my first AromaTouch session, I felt so relaxed and de-stressed!! I knew then that I had to share this experience with others. So I went to a certification class just like this one and began to share it with my friends and family. In July of 2014 I was certified as an instructor so that I can teach and certify others in the technique.
Whether you are a mom or caregiver who wants to address family health and wellness in your home as a first line of defense or a licensed professional who desires to offer AromaTouch as part of your clinical practice, you will greatly benefit from learning and sharing this technique.

Seating is limited. Register ASAP to reserve your spot.  

Saturday, July 18
9:00am – 4:00pm
587 Highway 51 North, Suite G
Ridgeland MS 39157

Cost is $149. Registration closes August 1, 2018.

~ An introductory set of eight doTERRA CPTG Essential Oils (5mL bottles)
