A group of volunteers have started doing AromaTouch Hand Techniques on the residents of the Lefa L Seran Skilled Nursing Center at Mt. Grant General Hospital. They are hoping to do it at least once a month.
The AromaTouch Hand Technique is simple and powerful because any of the doTERRA essential oils or essential oil blends can be used. This technique can be catered to each individual by selecting an oil that the person likes or needs. Oils can be blended to create a custom experience as well. Any oil that is used will benefit the individual and the person doing the technique. With a few drops of the chosen oil or blend, you can make someone’s day a little better.
The technique is comprised of five different movements. These five movements are used to establish relaxation and improved absorption of the oil. To do the entire hand technique, it takes between 5-10 minutes. While the technique is quick and simple, it still can provide a big impact through the human connection that is formed. It truly is all about the connection and spending time with a person. Touch is such an amazing thing all by itself; add the oils and the benefits are compounded. This technique gives you the time and opportunity to really make a change in someone’s life.
A few months ago, doTerra Wellness Advocate, Tammy Sandvik, had an idea to get a group of volunteers together, train them, put oils together and share the oils at the hospital with its residents. The operation has been a success, and more volunteers have been stepping forward. The youngest is 17 and as it turned out, he made one of the biggest connections.
Their first interaction with the residents was well received and they all had a great experience. It turned out even better than Sandvik had hoped. They look forward to many more.
Sandvik encourage all to learn the AromaTouch Hand Technique and use it to benefit someone you care for or join us at Mt. Grant General Hospital. If you would like more information or want to learn the technique and volunteer, please contact Tammy Sandvik at Souled Out or call 775-316-1161.
