Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

My husband suffered a trapezius sprain in October of 2008 while playing in a swimming pool with our 120 lb 13 year old granddaughter on his shoulders. He has been to countless doctor visits, from physical therapy, chiropractic, orthopedics and lastly a physiatrist who did acupuncture on him every week for 3 months.

The orthopedic doc told him in the area of his pain, there was nothing they could do for him! The pain had gotten so bad that my husband wasn't sleeping well and would hold his breath in his sleep. He became depressed to the point of not enjoying things he once enjoyed. His neck and back were in a constant spasm. After a sleep study, it was determined he had slight sleep apnea, but stopped breathing 25 times due to pain. This has gone on now for almost a year and a half. He is only 39 years old! I was introduced to Young Living oils by a friend.

We tried all kinds of them on his back to no avail. He was about to give up on ever being out of pain when we met a guy in our town who is a Registered Reflexologist and incorporates the use of Young Living oils in his work. He has had two sessions, with the last one being the Raindrop Technique. He also taught me how to walk on his back to try and loosen the tense muscles and his vertebrae. After that Raindrop session, he realized he was not in pain any longer. That was two days ago and he remains pain free and has had two good nights that he slept like a baby. He is no longer holding his breath in his sleep because he is not in pain.

The 9 oils in the Raindrop Technique apparently released the tension that had his muscles in a bind. We are still in shock and feeling very blessed tonight!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
2.Associated topics: muscle-spasm-/-twitch — "Peppermint oil is harmless and acts locally to inhibit GI [gastrointestinal] smooth muscle contraction.... Peppermint oil solution administered intraluminally can be used as an antispasmodic agent with superior efficacy and fewer side effects than hyoscine-N-butylbromide...."Link
3.Associated topics: muscle-spasm-/-twitch — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
4.Associated topics: muscle-spasm-/-twitch — "Anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antimicrobial, antioxidant, carminative [flatulence] and immunomodulatory properties of caraway suggest that it might exert beneficial effects on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).... CHE and CEO [caraway essential oil] at all doses tested were effective in reducing colon tissue lesions and colitis indices and the efficacy was nearly the same when different doses of plant fractions were administered p.o. or i.p..... These data suggest that caraway fractions are both effective and possess anti-colitic activity irrespective of the dose and route of administration."Link
5.Associated topics: muscle-spasm-/-twitch,muscle-pain — "[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
6.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
