While the AromaTouch Technique is the go-to for almost every circumstance, it does have its limitations. For example, you need a calm, private environment as well as 45 minutes to an hour to perform the technique. This is why the AromaTouch Hand Technique is so valuable. Not only is the hand technique simple enough that anyone can perform it, but it also only takes a few minutes to complete on both hands.
The movements in the Hand Technique are simple, yet they deliver a powerful wellness experience. It is important to perform the steps in order (with the oil or blend of your choosing) to achieve the desired outcome.
This movement is the giver’s opportunity to help the recipient feel comfortable with their touch. Explain the motions to prepare the recipient for the benefits they will receive through the technique.

This is the most methodical step. This movement is done three times through each zone. The Five Zones start at the point of the wrist and go all the way through the tip of each finger, starting with the thumb (Zone 1) and finishing through the little finger (Zone 5). The pressure through this step is medium pressure with consistent rhythm. It should take at least 2 minutes to perform.
The Interphalangeal Pull addresses the tissue in between each finger. Use your pointing finger and thumb to pull on this tissue, beginning where the fingers start to spread apart from each other and pull away from their body. This movement helps to close the hand technique. The pressure on this step is light to medium pressure with a fluid pulling motion. It should only take about 30 seconds to perform.
