I'm not quite sure what happened. I walked into Spa Gregorie's Newport Beach to try out the new Aroma Touch Treatment (45 minutes for $139), settled into a robe and headed to the treatment room with therapist Lisa. We chatted, I took my place on the treatment table… and the rest is a little murky.
Between bouts of deep sleep, I recall having aromatic essential oils dropped along my spine, Lisa's very light touch and pressure points in my feet being activated. Needless to say, it turned into an incredibly relaxing 45 minutes.
Though relaxation was the dominant benefit I experienced from Aroma Touch, others include detoxification, immune system enhancement and pain relief. The spa uses eight of doTERRA’s certified pure essential oils to accomplish these benefits:
Balance – This is a grounding blend of spruce, rosewood, frankincense, and blue tansy to provide balance and decrease anxiety.
Lavender – This supports calming, de-stressing and relaxation.
Melaleuca – This is tea tree oil, boasting antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties to cleanse and detoxify.
On Guard – This is a blend of wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary used to stimulate, support and strengthen the body’s defensive immune system.
AromaTouch – This is a blend of basil, grapefruit, cypress, majoram, peppermint, and lavender to help stimulate blood flow to surface tissues.
Deep Blue – This is a blend of wintergreen, peppermint, blue tansy, German chamomile, helichrysum, and osmanthus to soothe aching muscles and support a healthy inflammatory response in the body.
Peppermint – This invigorates, refreshes and rejuvenates the body.
Wild Orange – This centers, uplifts and stimulates the body, mind and spirit to awaken the senses.
