Raindrop Therapy with Essential Oils
Feb 08, 2008 05:00AM
Raindrop Therapy, an infusion of essential oils, energy work, reflexology, heat and tension relieving massage to the feet and back, was inspired by the Native American healing traditions of the Lakota Indians. These elegant, relaxing sessions work to connect the physical and energy bodies of an individual to facilitate self-healing.Â
Essential Oils are the lifeline for the plants from which they are derived and are responsible for delivering oxygen and nutrients and eliminating toxins from the plants. The oils can perform these functions in our bodies as well. Used for centuries in many cultures to anoint and cleanse the body, they elicit frequencies and vibrations that have the capability to boost the delicate energy bodies of the mind, emotion and spirit.
Raindrop Therapy is based on the theory that many types of scoliosis and spinal misalignments are caused by viruses or bacteria that lie dormant along the spine. These pathogens create inflammation that contorts and disfigures the spinal column. Recent research corroborates the existence of infectious microorganisms as a cause of spinal pain and inflammation. Essential oils are some of the most powerful inhibitors of microbes known and studies prove therapeutic essential oils to be important new weapons for combating tissue infections.Â
Nine different oils are used during a session, including oregano, thyme, basil and peppermint with properties that are anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory. The oils are dispensed like little drops of rain six inches above the spine, then gently feathered into the skin. A heat application is used to assist in oil transference and muscle relaxation. The oils help improve circulation, heal damaged tissue and support the immune system.Â Â
In addition to spinal issues,Â the techniqueÂ may also be beneficial for digestive complaints, stress, detoxification, hormonal problems and some chronic illnesses. Many practitioners state it is an invaluable tool to promote healing withinÂ while assisting in creating and maintaining the delicate balance within the body and energy fields.Â
