Something exciting is happening in my practice, and I would like to share with you, my followers.
I trained as an aromatherapist 20 years ago, but after qualifying as a McTimoney Chiropractor I slowed down on how much aromatherapy I did. Over these past few months I have begun to explore the oils uses again, and yesterday I had a fascinating result that I would love to share.
I had a stand at a Holistic Fair in Troon, a town about 10 miles away from my clinic. I had on my stand one of my proto-col ambassadors doing hand massages with the wonderful aromatic Dead Sea Salt handscrubs. Now these smell absolutely devine, but 1 lady said that she couldn’t chose which one to use based on smell, as she has lost that sense 15 years ago, after a period of chronic sinusitis. Following her hand massage, which she did enjoy as it is very tactile, and leaves the skin feeling silky smooth from the exfoliating properties of the Dead Sea Salt, she came over to talk to me, as my darling husband had said that the very first Chiropractic adjustment was for deafness, nothing whatsoever to do with a bad back and that perhaps I could help her regain her sense of smell!
Well I performed a spinal check on her, and couldn’t find an awful lot wrong with her spine, but I did find that her lacrimal bones were way out of alignment, so much so that I thought that they could be pressing on her olfactory nerve. You can see from this picture just how close the olfactory nerve bulb is to the eyes and sinus’. I gave her several pungent oils to smell, and she had a feint scent of Eucalyptus, an oil that is highly penetrating, but she could not smell Rosemary or May Chang, 2 oils which are sharp and penetrating, but less than Eucalyptus. I performed an adjustment on the lacrimal bones whilst she was there, and she said that she felt a tingling in her nose. Her sense of smell did not alter though.
Then I checked her chakras, and lo and behold her 6th chakra, the brow or third eye, was blocked. I did some work on that, and then applied some Rosemary to the chakra. Guess what? She had a feint aroma of something, which she thought was eucalyptus, but was in actual fact Rosemary. Interestingly enough she then had a closed throat chakra, which I then worked on, so that she left me with a complete set of open chakras. I suggested that she book in to have a facial massage, so that I can work on the sinus points and help them to drain.
I am doing lots of reading about the use of aromatherapy and chakras, and hope to be able to write more experiences up like this, as and when they happen.
Each chakra has several essential oils which are associated with them, and Rosemary is an oil associated with the 6th chakra.
I will follow this blog up about Rosemary being my “Oil of the Day” tomorrow, and also write up the oils that are associated with each of the chakras, so that you can try them out for yourself, and see if you can balance a recurrent blocking chakra.
Do you have a question, about this or any oterh blog that I have written. Please let me know, as this is how my blogging develops. I do not have a set agenda, it just evolves around my experiences and your questions or observations.
