Essential Oils for Emotional Health Class Summary
Essential Oils for Emotional Health Class Part 1: The connection between the jaw and emotions.
During class, the Emotional Coach went over how to use a Gua Sha Tool ( a smooth-shaped stone). It is used by holding the stone in your hand and gliding it along with different pressure points on your face. This exercise helps lift your face as well as release tension that is caused by stress. She noted that a lot of people with TMJ also benefit from using a Gua Sha tool to release jaw tension.
The emotional coach went over what doTERRA essential oils can be used while completing this exercise. She sprayed doTERRA Verage Facial Toner before using the Gua Sha Tool. Then she demonstrated using the Gua Sha tool on her face starting with a tension point next to the mouth gliding the tool upward (with the pressure you would apply as if you were scraping water from the top of Jello) up to the top of her cheekbone. The next area she went to was the corner of her nose gliding the tool upward to the same place as the top of the cheekbone. She then used the tool between the eye and top of the nose and went upward toward the eyebrow and through the eyebrow. Last she used the tool gliding from eyebrow upward to her hairline.
She stopped using the Gua Sha tool and formed her fingers in a scissor shape. She started at the bottom of the chin and kept the scissor fingers gliding upward toward the top of the cheekbone and through the hairline. The Emotional Coach noted that a lot of people hold tension at the top of the ear within the hairline.
