Moving to the back, this technique uses a  gentle gliding touch as therapeutic grade essential oils are applied up the spine and to tired muscles.

These oils are then “feathered in” using a spine-tingling technique inspired by the Native American body work, combined with massage. Let us pamper you!

About Raindrop Technique

Raindrop Technique is an exciting modality, which can be performed on both people and animals. In addition to being performed as a technique in its own right, the various elements of Raindrop Technique can be used to complement most other modalities, including massage (all forms), reflexology, bowen technique, shiatsu, chiropractic and physiotherapy.

Raindrop Technique derives its name from the art of dripping unadulterated, therapeutic-grade essential oils onto the body from a height (like rain), so that the oils interact with the physical body as well as the energy field. This was inspired by the Native American belief that raindrops falling from a height may purify and cleanse the body and spirit. Because the essential oils easily penetrate the skin and muscles, the technique works on deep levels of the body without requiring hard pressure or force.

Raindrop Technique was developed by essential oil researcher and naturopath D. Gary Young (read his personal blog by clicking here) following research showing that many forms of spinal misalignment are caused by muscle spasms and inflammation-producing bacteria and viruses that reside along the spine.

The Steps of Raindrop Technique

Raindrop Technique is conducted in silence. Undistracted by sound and talking, the recipient is able to sink into a deep state of relaxation and self-connection. In this receptive state, the space for deep healing is created.

There are four steps to Raindrop Technique. The first step is very simple, and is an Energy Balancing step.  The Young Living Essential Oils’ blend of Valor is applied on the feet, and the feet are held. This step may take 5 to 10 minutes. Valor is designed to help balance the electrical energies in the body and the aura, promoting a deep state of relaxation.

Raindrop Technique then uses Vitaflex Technique, the Ancient Tibetan form of reflexology, in conjunction with various Young Living essential oils. Vitaflex technique originated in Tibet thousands of years ago, long before acupuncture was developed.

Unlike reflexology, Vitaflex Technique is designed to send an electrical pulse along the nerve pathways of the body. This pulse reaches areas of the body where there is a break in the electrical circuit caused by toxins, damaged tissues or loss of oxygen.

Vitaflex Technique involves a distinctive movement of the hands and fingers, and sends the receiver into an even deeper state of relaxation as the essential oils combine with the electrical pulses to uplift the body and mind, and release tension, congestion and imbalances.

The third step of Raindrop Technique is where it derives its name. The recipient is positioned face down, and essential oils are dropped onto the back and spine from a height of approximately six inches (15cm). This means that the oils are interacting with the body’s energy field (its aura) even before they contact the physical body, producing an intensified effect. The oils are then massaged into the back using a variety of modern massage techniques and Vitaflex moves.

The recipient then positioned face up, and for the fourth step their head is cupped and their body is rocked using a specific movement of the fingers around the occiput (back of the head), where the skull joins the neck. This movement effectively pumps the lymphatic fluid of the body.

The Young Living® essential oils used most commonly in the technique are Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Cypress, Wintergreen or Birch, Marjoram and Peppermint, and the blends Valor and Aroma-Siez. However, other oils may be added or substituted as appropriate and as needed, including oils for supporting emotional balance.

Because of the importance of using only the highest quality essential oils and the correct chemotypes, Raindrop Technique is taught and performed with Young Living essential oils.
