Aroma Acupoint Therapy TM, Level 1
with Peter Holmes LAc, MH

Harness the Power of Essential Oils to Boost Your Practice!

In this completely updated and expanded workshop you will discover…

  • An innovative, gentle hands-on method of treatment that allies the potency of essential oils with acupuncture, bodywork to dramatically enhance your practice — with practicum breakouts to practice and experience this work
  • How to select the oils and match them accurately to specific acupoints
  • How to get transformative results treating the basic energetic imbalances that lead to common conditions such as muscle tension and pain, anxiety, overactive mind, depression, insomnia, fatigue, headaches, etc.
  • How to perform hands-on the clinically valuable Six-Condition Assessment on a new client
  • Learning the specific actions of the top 20 essential oils to correct a client’s energetic imbalances
  • Practicing the detailed protocols for applying the oils selected onto the points

Acupuncture or bodywork alone are often insufficient for producing the kinds of results we ideally want to see with our clients. So many conditions involve mental and emotional issues, and many of them present chronic disorders that usually respond better to gentle treatment … which ends up being more effective.

Genuine essential oils when used with specific acupuncture points can bring a powerful new dimension to our practice. Holding certain oils on specific matching points will modulate neuroendocrine functions by activating peptides, thereby triggering profound energetic changes in the individual. Aroma Acupoint treatment can create truly amazing and lasting shifts in treatment outcome. These can be monitored by often rapid changes in the pulse, affect and complexion, as well as providing rapid relief of physical, emotional or mental symptoms.

Aroma Acupoint Therapy proves invaluable for patients presenting mental and emotional blocks; for treating infants, children and the elderly, as well as for those afraid of needles. It also excels at treating patients with chronic conditions who are too weak or sensitive to tolerate acupuncture. It also combines easily, of course, with acupuncture itself. In a bodywork practice, it allows the practitioner’s fingers to take a deserved break while the oils are being gently applied to the active points.

This information-packed workshop will present the essential practical information needed to start using this effective, safe and user-friendly treatment modality in your practice right away.

Aroma Acupoint Therapy (AAT) is a gentle, completely safe and profoundly effective treatment modality that utilizes the energetic treatment potential of pure essential oils and acupoints combined. Treatment involves placing particular oils on specific acupuncture points on the body in order to trigger energetic changes in the individual that will bring the client back to a state of balance. Aroma Acupoint Therapy works on the basis of mutual resonance through the systematic and intentional combination of essential oils and acupuncture points, resulting in a more significant clinical effect than using either of these alone.
