Releasing blocks with aromatherapy
Have you tried using aromatherapy to help you overcome blocks and obstacles? Essential oils work on all levels of the body-physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. An aromatherapy session begins with an assessment regarding the current status of the physical, emotional, and mental bodies and any other health challenges present. Priorities are discussed and then a plan of action using several essential oils or blends is mutually decided on for optimum results.
Some applications include:
I have personally used the essential oil blends of Clarity, Brain Power, Acceptance, Awaken, Dream Catcher, Forgiveness, Release, Surrender, Gratitude, Believe, Grounding, Inner Child, Into the Future, Magnify Your Purpose, Motivation, Live with Passion, and Abundance as I progressed through my mid-life transition. I am now on my sixth (or is that seventh) career. Are you experiencing...
Perhaps there is an emotional component that needs to be released first. Aromatherapy sessions can include either an auricular technique where oils are applied on the acupressure points of the ear or topical application of oils on the energy centers of the body (feet and torso) accompanied with a short meditation. Once the emotional pattern is released the rest of the body can be brought into harmony. Contact Russell Louie for a personal aromatherapy session (prices start at $50/session for a one hour consultation) at (303) 271-1649 or Russell@OptimumChoices.com. Russell is also a Reiki Master and can combine Reiki energy with the aromatherapy session if requested.
How do essential oils help with emotional issues?
The connection between emotional stress and illness has long been established. But we are just beginning to understand the role of childhood events, past emotional trauma, and present negative emotional patterns on the rest of our lives. It was only recently (1989, New York Medical University) that scientists discovered the role of the amygdala gland in storing and releasing emotional trauma. Studies at New York Medical University proved this gland does not respond to sight, sound or touch but does respond through the sense of smell. Since the amygdala gland is sensitive to scents, aromas can be used to effect the release of old emotional traumas and patterns. Through our scents we now have a way to release stored emotional trauma.
How have essential oils been used historically?
Essential Oils are literally humanity’s first medicine kit:
A sacred room in the Temple of Isis portrayed a ritual called, “Cleansing the
Flesh and Blood of Evil Deities.”
The Egyptians believed a soul could not move on to its afterlife if it held
King Tut’s tomb contained alabaster jars enough to hold 350 liters of oil.
Robbers chose to steal the oils first over all the other gold treasures.
Ancient Egyptians used essential oils for medicinal purposes and to cleanse the emotional body. During the Middle Ages thieves used essential oils to avoid the plague. Come join us as we rediscover the therapeutic uses of essential oils including: fighting colds & viruses, relieving stress & pain, releasing emotions, safe use on animals, and other everyday uses in addition to how to include oils in your healthcare practice.

Improve and maintain your pet’s health naturally! This workshop will show pet owners how they can play an active role in extending the life expectancy of their pets through optimum nutrition and complementary wellness therapies. We will present many natural options for pet owners with an emphasis on nutrition, including how to do a raw food diet. Participants are invited to bring their pet food package labels for a free analysis and to receive recommendations for necessary diet modifications.
Add Years to Your Pet’s Life will cover topics on how to:
Since the 1950s, life expectancies of our pets have dramatically decreased and our pets are now commonly suffering from the degenerative diseases of humans such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and kidney disease. Due to mainstream commercial brand pet food diets that have significantly decreased in nutritional value and have become far removed from what Mother Nature intended our pets to eat, pet owners are faced with new challenges in making sure their pets are receiving the best nutrition possible. Optimum Choices teaches pet nutrition from the perspective of what Mother Nature designed our pets to eat, not what popular pet food manufacturers promote.

Get rid of all these blocks and be in the Universal flow by practicing the Tao
in business. A tennis player can be good with just a forehand. But a master
tennis player also has a good backhand. Those who aren't at least exposed to or
consider the Tao (or some other Eastern philosophy) are playing the game of life
without a backhand. It's like a football team that has a great passing game but
no running game. The football team can be good but never a champion. Join us in
becoming a master of life by learning how to use the Tao in your business,
professional and personal lives. Come learn with others how to use the Tao to
live in harmony with the Universe.
