The Raindrop Technique – Heaven on Earth

It was this time last year, that I had first received The Raindrop Technique TM. I was feeling out of sorts my shoulders were tight, my back was sore and my health could have been better. The indulgences of the holidays were lingering. I was feeling blah, and had no motivation to get motivated to be motivated... know what I mean? I needed a kick-start, mentally and physically. My intuition was telling me, a restrictive cleanse, or a year long membership to the gym, yoga, spinning etc, wasn’t going to do it for me. I needed more then what I was already doing throughout the year. I had being doing some experimenting with Young Living Essential Oils TM. I heard about the raindrop technique from a teacher in Toronto and decided to explore and research the technique and find a practitioner here on the island.

The Raindrop Technique Explained

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." Raindrop Technique uses a sequence of essential oils that are immune enhancing; support the body's natural defences, 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 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. They are also applied to the feet. The whole process 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. During the years RT has been practiced, it has resolved numerous cases of scoliosis, kyphosis, & chronic back pain. Further, it has eliminated the need for back surgery for hundreds of people.

For a complete history of RT refer to ‘The Statistical Validation of Raindrop’ by David Stewart & the ‘Essential Oil Desk Reference’ by D Gary Young.

My Personal Experience

While having the raindrop technique in the convenience of my own home, I felt instantly relaxed. The practitioner worked from my feet, then to my back, neck, and head with 9 different essential oils. While the amazing smells disbursed throughout the room, I felt different emotions come and go, felt my shoulders relax and most importantly towards the end my mind stopped racing. The whole technique took about an hour, ending with a hot towel compress on my back and I laid there until I felt ready to get up, there was no rush to get up. I was instructed to drink lots of filtered water throughout the week because the effects of the raindrop could last up to a week! The practitioner also measured me prior to and after, and I grew an inch!

During that week I noticed my mood improved, I had a been sleeping better and generally felt motivated to slide into the New Year with making more positive choices towards the good habits rather then the bad habits! We’re all going to indulge, we’re human but personally I think it’s important to transition well, and avoid the one extreme to the next. Eating well, drinking water and sufficient exercise are to follow after a time of indulgence, but sometimes you need a push that is emotionally and physically comforting, supporting and detoxifying
