Physiology Response

One of the physiological responses of both Holistic Aromatherapy and Healing Touch is to relax the body and regulate the immune system. The relaxation response releases endorphins in the brain, relaxing muscles and increasing circulation. Relaxed muscles create more space between cells providing increased circulation. This increased blood flow elevates oxygen levels throughout the body. Accelerated blood flow allows nutrients to be absorbed more efficiently. Enzymes build for proper digestion and hormones regulate to strengthen the body’s constitution. Toxins are released from the body and healthy cells begin to regenerate. A sense of well-being is established which promotes healing. When our bodies have a stable physiology, our immune system is regulated. The resulting immune system stability affect the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual facets of the body’s energy field – supporting self-healing.
