Description
 
Aromatherapy with Chinese Medicine, 470 pp.

Aromatherapy with Chinese Medicine explores the world of Aromatherapy from the Chinese herbal and acupuncture perspective for both the layperson and the professional. These perspectives lend great insight into understanding how to create natural healing with essential oils on the levels of the Body, Mind, and Spirit.

Part I covers basic application techniques as well as various categories for organizing essential oil knowledge including: 1) Essential Oil Chemistry, 2) the Functional Categories of Disease, and 3) The Five Phases. Part II covers ninety essential oils in depth and includes sections on essential oil contents, properties, functions, uses, blends, contraindications, and discussions of character types and signatures. It also covers important Carrier Oils and forty-four Synergies analyzed by function. Part III covers how to use essential oil for health and disease and includes extensive chapters on psycho-emotional disorders, heart and circulatory disease, healing the Body, Mind, and Spirit, children's disorders, respiratory disorders, musculo-skeletal disorders, as well as a full spectrum of other disease categories from addictions to urinary disorders.

This book is designed to read either from cover to cover for a greater depth of insight into natural healing issues, or simply as a reference manual. It is four hundred seventy-one pages long in a hardbound format and contains one hundred eighty-six charts, graphs, and figures that make it easy to understand, use, and remember the concepts that are presented in the text as well as dozens of beautiful illustrations of the plants used in the art of aromatherapy.

Dennis Willmont has been practicing acupuncture, Taijiquan and Daoist meditation for thirty years. In the early 1980s he created and directed the first professional program of Shiatsu and Acupressure Therapy in North America. His unique blend of scholarship and intuition has led to the formation of a multi-volume series on the energetics and Body/Mind/Spirit connection in ancient acupuncture. Dennis uses Essential Oils and Chinese herbs in his acupuncture practice in Marshfield, Massachusetts.

    Natural Healing with Essential Oils March 3, 2008
    Reviewer: Janis Egan from Manitowoc, WI, United States  
    Prior to discovering Dennis Willmont's Natural Healing with Essential Oils, I integrated this powerful modality into my practice using non-TCM reference materials.  Dennis interprets oil use in the five phases and eight principles of TCM, delves into specific aspects of mind/body/spirit healing, and educates the reader all inclusively on their use.  It is the single best source I've seen and has a very useful, comprehensive index.  The 8 page 5 phase essential oil adjunct folder is also very practice friendly and enables the user to confidently ease into combining EO's into specific treatment protocols with a minimal investment in product.  Essential oils and Chinese Medicine create a very powerful treatment that is well received by most of my patients.
