Raindrop Technique

"RAINDROP technique is a powerful, non-invasive tool for assisting the body in correcting defects in the curvature of the spine. During the years that it has been practiced, it has resolved numerous cases of scoliosis and kyphosis and eliminated the need for back surgery for thousands of people.

Raindrop Technique originated in the 1980s from the research of Dr. Gary Young working with a Lakota medicine man named Wallace Black Elk. It integrates Vitaflex and massage, utilizing the power of essential oils in bringing the body into structural and electrical alignment." (from the Essential Oils Desk Reference)

Raindrop Technique uses a sequence of essential oils that are immune enhancing, support the body's natural defenses, as well as the circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, digestive, nervous, and other body systems. These oils, which are high in antioxidants, are also mood elevating and antiseptic, creating an unfavorable environment for harmful viruses and bacteria that can hibernate in the body. Essential oils are known to boost stamina and energy, help you relax, help manage stress and frustration and promote overall health, vitality, and longevity.

The principal single oils used include:

  • Thyme
    (Thymus vulgaris)
  • Oregano
    (Origanum compactum)
  • Wintergreen
    (Gaultheria procumbens)
  • Cypress
    (Cupressus sempervirens)
  • Peppermint
    (Mentha piperita)
  • Basil
    (Ocimum basilicum)
  • Marjoram
    (Origanum majorana)

The oils are dispensed in little drops from a height of about six inches above the back, which is where Raindrop Technique gets its name. They are then massaged along the spine and back muscles using various techniques followed by a warm moist heating pad. While the oils are being absorbed into the spine and muscles the oils are applied to the feet. The treatment ends with a relaxing back and shoulder massage leaving you feeling completely relaxed.

This therapeutic treatment takes about an hour and may continue to work in the body for up to one week following a Raindrop Session, with possible realignment and bodily adjustment taking place during this time. Although one treatment can be effective for some conditions it is recommended that a series of treatments follow to increase the overall effectiveness.
