Aroma Point Therapy
Aroma Point Therapy is the marriage of the essential oils and acupuncture points. Using essential oils on acupoints allows a treatment to unfold with a grace that cannot be achieved by needles alone. Shown here are two examples of oils that I frequently use in my treatments. Bergamot is a citrus oil that can be placed in the triangle hollow of the ear. This point is Shen Men or Spirit Gate. The action of bergamot feels harmonizing, lifting, opening and once placed upon Shen Men can enhance the calming aspect of the Spirit Gate. Vetiver is an earthy, funky oil taken from a grass. Vetiver’s roots can grow up to 14 feet long. Imagine how this oil placed on on the bottom of the foot (Kidney 1 acupoint) can enhance the sense of grounding in your body.
