Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT)

About Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT)

AFT combines work with essential oils and principals drawn from CBT and EMDR to help patients achieve goals which may have previously been blocked by negative thoughts and memories.


The Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT) uses the power of inhaling specific scents to gently shift negative thoughts, feelings, and memories towards a positive outlook and attitude.  This technique results in greater confidence and inner freedom from negativity.  In addition, this process focuses on finding solutions to help achieve long-awaited goals that may have been blocked by negative thoughts and memories. 


AFT was created by clinical psychologist, Dr. Benjamin Perkus.  He integrated 20 years of clinical experience with 15 years of work with essential oils into a technique that is easy to use by almost anyone.  He created this technique combining several psychological principals such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).  


Liz Grizzaffi, PA-C is a certified Aroma Freedom Technique practitioner.  She offers one-hour sessions using essential oils combined with the AFT process to yield mind, body and emotional wellness.
