Article reprint: Aromatherapy and Acupressure–

Working Together for Better Outcomes

by Vickie Keeler, MA, BSN, RN, HBC-BC

Since the beginning of time plants and herbs have been used around the world to treat body, mind, and spirit.  Numerous studies have shown the benefits of using essential oils/Aromatherapy.

Acupressure is a non-invasive healing modality using the fingers and thumbs on the same acupoints that are used for acupuncture, a modality that uses needles in specific locations for medical treatment.

Both are integrative non-pharmacological treatments that have fewer side effects than pharmaceuticals. Both can be cost effective. Aroma Acupoint Therapy is the combined use of Aromatherapy and acupressure. Research has shown that combing the two to work together can lead to better outcomes in patient care. This article will examine studies showing positive outcomes using Aromatherapy and acupressure together.    Download
