Most often I use the transition blend directly on the patient’s skin. I like to use the soles of the feet, the hands, the forehead and the heart chakra. I will either start with a foot massage, and mix the blend with lotion, or I may put the blend directly on the sole of the foot, or acupoint Kidney 1, which is used for grounding.
I have found the frankincense essential oil very good for my Acutonic sessions as it has such a deeply meditative aroma. Last week another nurse and I visited one of our patients in a hospice home in San Francisco. She was going to do massage for the patient and I was doing Acutonics.
We decided to do our treatments simultaneously. She was using massage lotion that she had added transition blend to and I used the frankincense on my palms prior to starting. The patient’s room was quite small and we had limited space on only one side and head of the bed. Amazingly, between the aromas, the sounds of the tuning forks and Tibetan bowl a sacred space was created.
We lost track of time and space and at the conclusion of the session the patient stated he felt we had all been working together in a beautiful way. We wholeheartedly agreed and we ALL felt more relaxed and calm. She and I floated back to the office knowing we had had quite a spiritual experience.
