Medicinal Aromatherapy

Health and well-being in a bottle?

Essential oils are nature’s medicines and have been used for thousands of years for healing, relaxing, first aid, supporting the immune system, enhancing beauty and meditation and uplifting spirits.  If you are looking for a way to take care of yourself on a daily basis this is one of the most effective ways to address many day to day issues.

I use them throughout my day and never travel without my oils.

Essential Oils are powerful pain reducers/healers for:

  • Inflammation
  • Cuts, scrapes, burns
  • Back pain, sciatica
  • Releasing emotional trauma
  • General stress, overwhelm and anxiety
  • Asthma
  • Cold/flu/fever
  • Injuries such as a sprain, strain or pulled muscles/ligaments
  • Digestive issues such as bloating, indigestion, diarrhea
  • Enhancing meditation/yoga
  • And more!

In the US the term Aromatherapy is slapped on everything.  All the synthetic air fresheners, to dishwashing liquids, adulterated essential oils and the list goes on!

Effective aromatherapy requires 2 things –

  1. Authentic (also referred to as therapeutic grade) essential oils
  2. Discovering the correct oil(s) for YOUR body, mind, and spirit

Only 4-6% of all oils produced are authentic and suitable for healing purposes.  This means the plants were grown organically or in the wild, without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. They must be harvested at the correct time of year and distilled at low temperatures and without chemical solvents or additives.  Citrus oils are cold pressed but should not have chemical additives or solvents.  Nothing has been added or taken away from the oil.  I DO NOT recommend purchasing oils in a health food store because most are adulterated,  meaning they have been altered by adding components (natural or synthetic) or distilled at too high of a temperature destroying components.  This results in loss of some or all of the healing ability of the oil. You see the perfume and flavor industry only cares about the aroma or taste of the product, not that it is healing.

You are unique in body chemistry and your life experiences.  You need an oil or blend that con address the physical and emotional components of your health challenge and work with your chemistry.  For example there are over 20 oils/blends that can help reduce physical pain. Which one should you choose?

If you have tried a “relaxing essential oil” or “pain reducing oil” you picked up at the store and thought it smelled nice, but didn’t really do anything, it could be because of one or both of the above reasons.

A Medicinal Aromatherapy session finds the appropriate oil(s) for your issue from a whole person perspective – body, mind, and spirit

This session is for you if you’re experiencing frequent common issues such as headaches, indigestion, colds, muscle strain or sprains and prefer to alleviate it with natural substances that work with your body compared to medications.   If you have a chronic illness such as asthma, high blood pressure, arthritis and want to manage it better without increasing your medications or work on decreasing the amount of medication you are taking this session is for you.

If you want to manage your stress and sleep better at night so you feel calm, focused and energized during the day aromatherapy can help.  Medicinal Aromatherapy sessions are very effective for those wanting to enhance their immune system to prevent becoming ill and for uplifting one’s spirits.

It’s time to learn which oil(s) YOUR body needs and the appropriate way to use them! Make an appointment to see me.  I test you so you don’t have to GUESS which oil will work best and perhaps waste your money and not get the relief you desire. The session is approximately 1 hour 45 minutes.  Here is what happens after you schedule your appointment:

  • Before we meet you will complete an intake form.  This allows me to find several oils that will help your issue
  • During our session, I check to see which oils resonate with your body this can be done in person or virtually.
  • They are applied in the appropriate way or placed in your energetic field if virtual session.
  • You receive healing touch.  Again can be done virtually, just read this testimonial. from Debbie a client in New York!
  • I teach you appropriate methods of application, safety precautions etc.
  • You receive up to $30 worth of oils for home use.

If you do not wish to receive healing touch we can just test you for the appropriate oils.  That takes 45-60 minutes.

I also offer Raindrop Therapy sessions using the oils.  Scroll down for further information about this technique.  You don’t have to “just live with the pain.”  Let me help you help yourself using holistic therapies.  Click here to contact Laurie for an appointment.

Still not sure this is right for you? I am happy to talk with you in a 30 minute session and discuss your pain issues to determine what package would be the most beneficial for you.  You have nothing to lose!

Raindrop Technique

The raindrop technique applies a variety of authentic essential oils to the feet, spine and back topically using specific types of strokes in a specific sequence. The oils act synergistically to kill viral and bacterial pathogens, reduce inflammation, support the immune system, ease respiratory discomfort, relax stressed muscles, relieve body and joint discomfort, as well as balance energy, restore calm, lift the spirit and improve concentration. The client must remove shoes, socks and clothing above the waist to allow for the application of oils. A session lasts approximately 1 hour.

Clients that benefit the most from this technique are those with:

  • Acute or chronic back pain
  • Bone or joints issues
  • Spinal misalignments such as scoliosis or kyphosis
  • Respiratory issues
  • Stress issues

Gary Young developed this technique after visiting with the Lakota people in South Dakota where he learned about effleurage (feathered finger stroking). He combined this technique with the energy of essential oils and Vita Flex and formally adopted the Raindrop Technique in 1989. It is used in various health care settings with tremendous results.
