To condense what I do for a living would be to call myself a “neuromuscular apothecary,” for my therapeutic massage practice splices physical rehabilitation with the application of essential oils and aromatherapy. By bridging the therapeutic touch world with the aromatherapy world, my aim is to provide an arena for greater personal healing to occur. In 2015, while practicing neuromuscular massage, I began to wonder if it were possible to merge my anatomical knowledge with the aromatic healing elements of essential oils so that I could further the benefits my patients received. Already from my own personal experience I had encountered powerful back pain relief from the use of frankincense and rose extracts. Since the emergence of aromatherapy in my practice, I continue to be grateful to serve others beyond the muscular realm and offer additional support through the value of plant-based medicine.
Since I began using therapeutic grade essential oils with patients, I have witnessed profound healing occur. When used as they are intended, pure, potently sourced essential oils are powerful anecdotes to pain. For 22 years I have worked in the therapeutic realm, with athletes (both amateurs and professionals), mothers, fathers, truck drivers, pregnant women, babies, children, trauma victims, geriatric patients, those recovering from surgery, etc., and I have learned that there are many facets to what heals us towards becoming whole again. Physical pain can ripple out quite far from a knee injury we initially suffered from, as can the muscular exhaustion we feel from driving long distances with a partially recovered knee. Alongside physical injuries are the emotional strains that attach themselves to the experiences. There is anxiety, dismay, frustration, fear, loneliness, anger, worry, bitterness, exhaustion, weakness… All of these emotions, and many more emotions than listed, are connected to our physical injuries; they exist like ornaments hanging from a tree and accompany the physical body. The tree is often what is seen first: “Sam, I see that you’ve torn your ACL.” Sam’s limping makes it obvious that he is injured, yet the dangling additions to Sam’s hurt knee include financial stress, loss of movement, boredom, anger at the body part, resentment at the rehab process, etc. It is clear that Sam’s torn ACL affects so much more than just the inconvenience of a bum knee.
This is where the effectiveness of essential oils has nearly rendered me speechless. They not only soothe acute and chronic physical pain, they often ease the emotional storm that accompanies an injury. While Sam is reeling from the pain of a torn ACL, essential oils like Peppermint, Cypress, Copaiba and Blue Tansy can address the stodginess and inflammation he is experiencing. They will ease the tension and inflammation felt in the body on so many levels. Let me be even more clear: essential oils can be used topically (transdermally through the skin), internally (through the digestive system), and aromatically (breathed in through the nose) to shift the baseline of the patient’s emotional state while they are interfacing with their physical pain. This total body (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual) care is AMAZING to say the least. Should Sam use essential oils to address his injury not only while in my treatment office, for instance, but also throughout the days in between his office visits, he will find that his physical recovery is faster and his overall psyche is mended as well. Essential oils can provide substantial relief and stabilization when a person such as Sam experiences pain, and they do so without the grogginess and addictive properties that many other pain medications create. At the end of his therapy, Sam finds that he is renewed and relieved, not numb and addicted.
Moving on from Sam…
What conditions are essential oils effective in treating? Any and every condition I can think of… arthritis, gas pain, gout, shingles, anorexia, hair loss, fungus, yeast, loneliness,strains, sprains, depression, weight gain, immune disorders, irritability, headaches, migraines, Bells Palsy, brain fog, stye, bladder infections, back pain, swelling, diabetes, bed-wetting, ADHD, low self-esteem, restless leg, TMJ pain, indigestion, anxiety, etc. The list goes on and on…
These are the 3 main reasons I use essential oils:
1/ I like being in charge of my health, and choose nature as medicine first before reaching for a lab-made substance.
2/ I care about sourcing pure plant-based medicine. –> The following reasons are why I have chosen Doterra as a supplier. (Doterra’s oils are very potent, standards are beyond “organic” in their qualifications, Fair Trade practices, plants/trees/flowers are only grown and harvested in native environments.)
3/ They are safer, more effective and cheaper overall than pharmaceuticals. (BTW, Doterra is the only essential oil company to receive FDA approval as of September 2021, which is amazing in an unregulated industry. Also, as of 2021, Johns Hopkins and Vanderbilt have rated Doterra’s oils as “Pharmaceutical Grade.” )
