RAINDROP THERAPY This application technique was developed by Dr. Don Gary Young, N.D. Aromatologist, and one of North America's leading experts on the art and science of aromatherapy. This technique involves dropping the oils directly onto the spine from about six inches above the body. The oils are then worked into the spine using light strokes with the fingers which stimulate energy impulses and disperse the oils along the nervous system throughout the entire body. In this way, the body can be brought into balance and the energy centers can be cleared and re-aligned. It will also help to reduce spinal inflammations and kill viruses that hibernate along the spinal column, as well as help to straighten any spinal curvatures. Although a session lasts for about 45 minutes to an hour, the oils will continue to work in the body for a week or more following the treatment. For more details on how to do the therapy, please refer to Dr. Young's book, Aromatherapy: The Essential Beginning. The video tapes that are listed in the bibliography at the end of this book provide an excellent visual demonstration. Raindrop Therapy is available at Hope House by appointment.
