Aromatherapy is the inhalation and use of plant oils, called essential oils for improved physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Essential oils are the pure essence of the plant – often referred to as nature's living energy – and can provide both psychological and physical benefits when used correctly. Essential oils can be used on their own for aromatherapy or with complementary massage oils. There are two ways to use essential oils for aromatherapy: inhalation and topical application .When you breathe an essential oil it is processed through the olfactory system, which then sends the therapeutic benefits of the aroma to the brain.
Our sense of smell is one of our oldest imprinting senses and is the only one of the five senses directly linked to the limbic system – where our emotions, behavior, motivation, long-term memory, and smell are processed.
As Therapeutic grade essential oils contain molecules that appear to be acceptable by receptor sites on every cell, which causes quick assimilation promoting relaxation of muscles, regeneration of tissue and reduction of inflammation. Two wonderful ways to experience both are by having a Raindrop Therapy session or an Aromatherapy Polarity Chakra Balance.
The Raindrop Technique,
developed by D. Gary Young, N.D., Owner of Young Living Essential Oils and a Lakota medicine man almost two decades ago, uses a sequence of nine highly immune enhancing essential oils. They are dropped like rain from a height of about 6 inches onto the spine and then lightly massaged in using various hand to body techniques. This stimulates energy impulses and disperses the oils along the nervous system throughout the entire body. Light massage techniques are used along these meridians and nerve centers for physical and energetic response, as well as stimulation of the vital reflex points in the feet to promote systemic response, energetic flow and detoxification.
The many bio-energetic healing components of these essential oils are directly absorbed into the skin, nerves, connective tissue and blood stream bringing about balance, harmony and increased energy flow to the entire body.
Wonderfully soothing, nurturing and relaxing, the Raindrop Technique can work its benefits in the body and nervous system for days, weeks or even months. Come experience a wonderful Raindrop Technique massage today!
