This introductory class will teach you two powerful stress reducing techniques that you can use right away for overall healing, tension and stress relief. By pairing aromatherapy and acupressure points, you can profoundly enhance your well-being routine and add a new rich dimension to your holistic practice with essential oils.

Tension, stress, and trauma are what commonly block the flow of qi (energy) in our bodies and cause pain, headaches, and tension. Essential oils and acupressure points when used together can quickly reduce symptoms. Learn how to quickly help yourself, family or patients with a few basic points and oils.

Special Bonus! Take home your energetically aligned essential oil used in class.
$69 fee includes oils to be used in class and a take-home oil.
