Long story short. My fiance has had 4 back surgeries since 1999. His last one was exactly a year ago. It hasn’t helped him at all. He has been in agonizing pain, day in and day out for a whole year. He is unable to go anywhere, unable to work, go to mass, sleep, exercise etc.
This co worker of mine is really into essential oils and I think they are really cool too. I bought a few and I have enjoyed diffusing them, drinking them in my water and putting them on my skin. She has been suggesting for sometime that my fiance should have “raindrop therapy”. This is a procedure where 12 different oils are layered onto the body and several people claim that is has completely healed them from chronic pain.
This is the part that bothered me. When reading about it there were certain words that made me uncomfortable like “chakra” and “aura”. She claims that this isn’t a new age thing and has nothing to do with the spiritual realm but that it is biblical based and is based off of Jewish traditions. To me is sounds a bit like Kabballah or Gnosticism. She explained to me that the Hebrew letters each had a corresponding number, color and body organ and that the “chakras” are just being cleared so that the oils can get in and heal the body and that supposedly there is scientific and biblical evidence to back this up.
Does anyone know anything about this and whether or not it is bad news and something that should be avoided? It sounds a little too hoodoo-voodoo to me but supposedly people are being healed by it so I’m just curious.
