Auriculotherapy with Aromatherapy & Essential Oils

Auriculotherapy or “ear reflexology”

Is based on the Ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture. It is a therapeutic intervention which stimulates the ear to alleviate health conditions and emotional imbalances in the body. It helps identify hidden emotions that need to be handled by the person in order to release and be able to move forward. Did you know that in auriculotherapy there are different points in the ear that can be worked on that are associated with our body? These points are palpable and by using the internal organ points this can effect change; especially when certain organ points are used to treat specific emotion issues.

Is also an ancient and natural complementary tool used in combination with other holistic therapies (it can also be used on its own) to promote physical, psychological and spiritual well-being. Due to the high energetic vibrations that essential oils contain, they adapt to the person's needs to be able to promote relaxation, space for self-reflection, and personal growth and development. 

How can oils enhance a session? 

Oils enhance a session because of the vibrational energy that oils hold. For anyone using essential oils it is very important to understand the basic components and properties of the plant/essential oil to be able to determine what oil to use and for what. The body will return to a natural state of equilibrium after it responds to the essential oil(s) being used. And how does this happen? It all comes down to the initial state of being of the person and the interaction between the essential oil and the person. Essential oils will break down blocks, work at a deep inner level so that there is an opportunity for the person to regain a better sense of self-awareness.   

Using the oils directly (neat) on the ears as opposed to blending them in a carrier oil?
