In 2011, I became certified in animal aromatherapy from the International Certified Aroma Therapy Institute. In doing the research, study and practice associated with the program, I became a strong believer in the power of natural essential oils as great supplement the healing energy of Reiki. As a result, I am now offering The Raindrop Technique for horses and dogs.
Essential oils are the natural, aromatic volatile liquids found in flowers, shrubs, trees, roots, bushes and seeds. The distinctive components in essential oils protect plants against insects, environmental conditions and disease.
What Can Essential Oils Do?
The use of essential oils has been recorded in biblical times for anointing and healing the sick. Today, essential oils are used for aromatherapy, massage therapy, emotional health, personal care, nutritional supplements, household cleaning, and much more. Essential oils can be used many ways in your daily life. They can, among other things:
· clean your home without harmful chemicals
· supplement your existing first-aid kit with plant-based solutions
· improve physical, mental, and emotional well-being
· relieve pain and relax sore muscles
· provide natural protection from external parasites, such as fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes.
· reduce stress, fear and anxiety
Aromatherapy may be combined with other complementary treatments like massage, acupuncture, and Reiki, as well as with standard veterinary treatments.
Why are Essential Oils an Ideal Holistic Therapy for Animals?
· They gentle, non-invasive, painless, and stress free
· They can be used alone or in conjunction with another treatment method.

THE RAINDROP TECHNIQUE
The Raindrop Technique is a wonderful holistic treatment for horses and dogs! Nine powerful therapeutic grade essential oils/blends are dropped like little raindrops and massaged into the skin to relieve muscular tension and flush out toxins in the body.
This procedure originates from an ancient Lakota Indian Healing technique and was adapted by D. Gary Young of Young Living Essential Oils. The Raindrop Technique was developed as a result of research indicating that many forms of spinal misalignments are caused by muscle spasms due to bacteria and viruses originating in and around the spine. The Raindrop Technique has been effective in keeping horses and dogs structurally aligned and energetically balanced, as well as combating illness and disease.
The benefits of a Raindrop Therapy in animals are the same as in humans. Holistic vets and aromatherapists have been using the Raindrop Technique successfully to:
· Boost the immune system and prevent illness
· Help realign the spine and maintain chiropractic adjustments
· Help release toxins
· Address emotional issues
· Prevent and soothe sore muscles
Hikari Natural Healing uses only the highest quality therapeutic grade essential oils that are safe for use on animals and designed specifically for this kind of topical application.
