In the world of sports, essential oils have many benefits for athletes. A university with an NCAA Division I athletic program now works with doTERRA to receive instruction on essential oils and the AromaTouch® Technique. All of their campus training facilities have implemented doTERRA products into their training and physical therapy approaches with impressive results.
Not surprisingly, Deep Blue® is now a favorite of most of the athletes, from the gymnasts on the balance beam to the football players on the field. The runners especially love Deep Blue rub to quickly get the relief and support they need. They quickly feel the powerful effects of Deep Blue and it helps them to keep going during training and therapy. The head trainer for the track team says, “When they put on the rub, they feel the warmth for a long time. This helps our athletes feel better physically and mentally.” One football player added, “Deep Blue works so well! I use it before and after my workouts and it helps me finish my workout strong.”
During the initial product training session athletic trainers asked about the benefits of diffusing essential oils aromatically. Once trainers started setting up their Aroma Lite diffusers with a blend of doTERRA On Guard® and doTERRA Breathe™ in the training rooms, athletes and trainers alike noticed a big difference in the smell and positive atmosphere. One trainer in particular came back after a recruiting trip and immediately noticed a change. He says, “The football training room has never smelled so good—I had to know what had changed.” Once he found out that the diffusers made the difference, he asked if there was any way he could get three diffusers for his home. Other trainers also implemented what they were learning at home—the head football trainer even uses the hand technique and Lavender to help his daughter relax and get a better night’s sleep.
From the outset trainers were anxious to learn about the safety and benefits of essential oils, knowing that when they can pass along the benefits of a powerful, natural product to their athletes it makes a real difference. Over time, the trainers’ confidence in essential oils has grown as they have used the products themselves and seen the performance of their athletes improve. The Director of Sports Medicine says, “I love the changes I am seeing with all our teams as they continue to use the products and learn more. We’ve seen a difference in the general atmosphere of our training rooms and our athletes are experiencing the benefits of essential oils thanks to doTERRA. The effect isn’t something I had expected but I’m very pleased with the result.”
