The Raindrop Technique®, developed by D. Gary Young, N.D. and a Lakota medicine man almost two decades ago, uses a sequence of nine highly immune enhancing, therapeutic grade essential oils from Young Living. First they are applied to the feet, then they are dropped like rain from a height of about 6 inches onto the spine and then lightly massaged using various techniques. This stimulates energy impulses and disperses the oils along the nervous system throughout the entire body. Finally, the treatment ends with a hot towel compress on the back and shoulders. Your body will be very relaxed as it is absorbing the oils and resting.
We all carry immune system depleting viruses and bacteria. Essential oils applied to the spinal column are absorbed through the nerves that feed the entire body. Wonderfully soothing, nurturing and relaxing, the Raindrop Technique can work its benefits in the body for days, weeks or months. By integrating a gentle massage sequence with specific essential oils, you will have an experience that balances energy, releases toxins, and facilitates open energy flow throughout the body. Raindrop can assist in bringing the body back into balance, emptional release, tissue cleansing and spinal realignment. Although a session lasts about 75-90 minutes, the oils will continue to work in the body for a minimum of a week following the treatment.
I have been facilitating Raindrop Treatments for 3 years now and I my clients have reported great improvements in the following conditions as a result of Raindrop Technique®:
Pinched nerves, sciatica, chronic back pain, kyphosis, grief, emotional upsets, weight loss, MS, warts, respiratory infections, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, allergies, chronic fatigue and auto-immune conditions.
Raindrop also reduces inflammation, strengthens the immune system, restores a sense of calmness, and uplifts your spirit.
Oils used in Raindrop Technique®:
Valor – A wonderful blend that works on electrical and energy alignment of the body. This blend gives courage, confidence and self-esteem, while also helping the body to correct its alignment. This is the most important oil used in the treatment.
Thyme – One of the most antiseptic essential oils. It contains thymol, which has been studied for its effect on reducing the bacteria in the mouth that can lead to gingivitis and plaque. It may be beneficial in helping to overcome fatigue and exhaustion. This essential oil can easily penetrate the body, and may help kill any bacteria that may be present. Supplies energy during times of stress and physical weakness.
Oregano – Works similarly to thyme but is more aggressive and may help stimulate the immune system, balance metabolism and strengthen the vital centers of the body.
Wintergreen – Contains the same active ingredient (methyl salicylate) as birch, which is also found in aspirin and is beneficial for massage associated with bone, muscle, and joint discomfort. Elevates and increases awareness on sensory system.
Cypress – One of the oils most used to support the circulatory system.
Peppermint – One of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion. Peppermint has been found to improve mental accuracy, and soothes the respiratory system. Jean Valnet M.D., studied peppermint’s effect on the liver and respiratory systems. Other scientists have also researched peppermint’s role in affecting impaired taste and smell when inhaled. Dr. William N. Dember of the University of Cincinnati studied peppermint’s ability to directly affect the brain’s satiety center, which triggers a sense of fullness after meals.
Basil – Can be relaxing to muscles, including smooth muscles (those not subject to our voluntary control, such as the heart and digestive system). It may also be used to soothe insect bites when applied topically. Beneficial for mental fatigue, basil may help stimulate and sharpen the sense of smell.
Marjoram – Used for calming the respiratory system and assists in relieving spasms and relaxing the muscles. It also assists in calming the nerves and is an antiseptic.
Aroma Siez – This special blend of essential oils may help relax, calm and relieve tight, sore, tired, and aching muscles resulting from sports injuries, fatigue and stress.
