Raindrop Essential Oil Massage
By: Sue Coughtry, LMT
Raindrop Essential Oil Massage is now offered at the Stram Center for Integrative Medicine. This is a powerful healing tool utilizing the layering of 8 to 10 pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils on the feet and the spine to encourage deep cellular healing. This technique was created by D. Gary Young, ND. According to the Essential Oil Desk Reference by Life Science Publishing, this combination of essential oils works together to effectively kill bacteria, viruses and other pathogens within the body, including those “hiding” within the central nervous system that are so hard to treat. This technique also reduces inflammation, supports the immune system, relaxes tight muscles, eases bone and joint pain, and supports respiratory function.
A Raindrop Essential Oil Massage consists first of massaging each of the oils into the feet, which have areas on them corresponding to all the areas of the body. Then the oils are dropped like raindrops, one oil at a time, along the spine from the base of the spine up to the neck. Each essential oil is then gently massaged into the spine and the back using massage techniques that are especially beneficial for the entire central nervous system and the body. The session can be strictly an essential oil massage, lasting about a 1/2 hour, or it can last about an hour with Craniosacral Therapy added after the oils have been applied for a deeper, more effective treatment. The Stram Center for Integrative Medicine is unique in offering this combination of Raindrop Essential Oil Massage and Craniosacral Therapy. It is also possible to replace the Craniosacral Therapy with Medical Massage. Each session is customized to each individual. These oils are also not “perfumy” in scent, so men can be very comfortable with this.
Raindrop Essential Oil Massage is exceptional for people working through the challenges of Lyme disease, cancer, and other chronic diseases and conditions. In cases like this it is recommended that the person receive one of these Raindrop massages weekly for 4 to 6 weeks. The Stram Center for Integrative Medicine offers discounts for a series of 4 weekly sessions to make this option more affordable.
It is recommended in the Essential Oil Desk Reference that people receive a Raindrop Essential Oil massage 2 to 4 times a year for general health and healing. It is excellent for adapting to the changes of the seasons and helps build up the immune system in times of stress.
This is a very powerful combination of healing elements for all aspects of the body. It is also deeply relaxing and rejuvenating. See what including occasional Raindrop Essential Oil Massages can do for your health and healing.
