Neuro-Auricular Technique

Neuro-Auricular Technique

The Neuro-Auricular Technique (NAT) is an advanced form of the Raindrop Technique and addresses the upper back and neck. Its purpose is to stimulate & reconnect the synapses of the brain & upper spine. The essential oils used are applied at base of skull & along the 7 vertebrae between the skull and shoulders that involve the neck. This is the central switching station of the body. Every nerve impulse controlling our voluntary muscles as well as our organs passes through this area.

there are 12 nerves that come from the brain and not the spine.

There are 12 pairs of cranial nerves that come directly from the brain, not from the spinal cord. The first 8 pairs deal with innervation of the face, eye, nose, and mouth. The last 4 wander through the rest of the body and are known as the vagus nerve.


The Vagus nerve is known as the wanderer.

The vagus nerve controls the throat, larynx, lungs, heart, liver, stomach, large intestine, small intestine, & shoulders. It has 13 branches that go to these vital organs.  This nerve links the central nervous system (CNS) with the enteric (gut) nervous system (ENS) & forms the gut-brain connection. The vagus nerve is the largest of the twelve cranial nerves & is governed by the parasympathetic nervous system. The section of the CNS controls our rest/digest functions which are largely involuntary and often influenced by our emotion & hormones. The parasympathetic system is involved in the healing, protection, conservation, and restoration of body resources and functions.

The location of essential oil application.

The purpose of NAT is to fully awaken & restore full capacity at the base of the brain and connect all of the synapses of the brain & upper spinal cord in an effort to facilitate ideal health, healing, and bodily function.

The essential oils used in this technique are Frankincense, Valerian, Vetiver, Roman Chamomile, Cedarwood, Sandalwood. Other oils such as Trauma Life, SARA, Awaken, Acceptance, etc. can be used for the purposes of emotional release.
