Young Living Founder Speaks at International Dance Competition

SALT LAKE CITY—March 4, 2013—Young Living, the World Leader in Essential Oils® was recently invited to the Vancliffen Arts Foundation’s International Ballet Competition in Italy. The attendees learned of the many uses of essential oils that may help the dancer’s ability to perform with greater ease.

Young Living’s founder and CEO, D. Gary Young, was joined by Dr. Sabina DeVita to educate the audience of more than 300 dancers and parents on the natural benefits of essential oils.

Like many athletes, a dancer’s career is often plagued with pain, exhaustion, and injuries. Often dancers push through intense pain in order to create a visual masterpiece for the audience. It is common for dancers to be reluctant to seek medical attention for injuries in fear of losing roles. In some cases, taking prescribed medication for pain becomes a career-ending addiction for the dancer. Therefore, the director of the Vancliffen Arts Foundation hopes that the dancers will seek more natural and healthy alternatives to help avert long-term harm to the body.

One dancer participating in the competition injured his shoulder during practice. The performance scheduled that evening required several lifts of female dancers. Not performing would mean losing an opportunity for a scholarship. “He came running to our table seeking relief; he couldn’t lift his arm without pain,” said Dr. DeVita. “I rubbed several Young Living essential oils into his muscles, including-Idaho balsam fir, marjoram, wintergreen, and PanAway®. He later reported that he was able to continue his performance without pain.”
