Spinal Energy Technique - a gentle but powerful technique to bring the body back into balance

Posted by Kathy Newman Over 1 Year Ago

A gentle, featherlight layering of specific Healing essential oils along the spine, shoulders, neck, back and feet, as well as inhaling each oil - a real sensory experience for Mind, Body and Soul. I then work around the body doing an Energy Healing whilst you relax, snuggled in a warm fluffy dressing gown, whilst your body does what it needs to support the natural Healing of inflammation, tension, stress and illness, bringing the body back into a perfect natural Healing state. Why is working on the spine so important for Healing the body? Your spine is, quite literally, the backbone of your ability to move, sleep and function properly. Simply put, almost every movement originates from your spine, so taking care of your cervical (upper) and lumbar (lower) spine should be of utmost importance for everyone, but even more so when your body needs support to heal from inflammation. Your spine has three major functions: *Protecting the spinal cord and associated nerve roots *Providing structural support and balance to maintain an upright posture *Enabling flexible motion

The nervous system uses the spine to transmit electrical impulses resulting in feelings of sensation. Sensory information like pressure, touch, cold, warmth, pain and sensations in the skin, muscles, joints and internal organs all originate in the spine. This is why working along the spine with a gentle touch using pure essential oils works so well, as they get taken around the body to aid your natural Healing process. Why put the essential oils under the feet? The soles of the feet are extremely sensitive to touch due to a high concentration of nerve endings, with as many as 200,000 per sole, so that means that the oils used are going to get to those areas which need support to Healing. Your feet can tell a lot about what's going on in your body! Why do I need to inhale each of the essential oils? Inhaling essential oils stimulates the olfactory system, the part of the brain connected to smell, including the nose and the brain. Molecules that enter the nose or mouth pass to the lungs, and from there, to other parts of the body. As the molecules reach the brain, they affect limbic system, which is linked to the emotions, the heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress, and hormone balance. In this way, essential oils can have a subtle, yet holistic effect on the body.
