The Raindrop Technique® is a powerful, non-invasive oil anointing method whereby essential oils are dropped along the neck and spine with the intention to bring about complete relaxation, harmony, and wellness to the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual body. Essential oils are known to boost stamina and energy, help you relax, help manage stress and frustration and promote overall relaxation and vitality.
The Raindrop Technique® originated in the 1980’s by Dr. Gary Young. Dr. Young has researched aromatherapy and herbal medicine for over 20 years. His inspiration for the creation of technique was the Native American Lakotas, the Hunza people of the Himalayan Mountains, and the people of Inner Mongolia.
The Raindrop Technique® integrates Vitaflex and oil anointing in quiet, serene environment. The oils are applied first to the feet using the Vitaflex technique. Then to the back by dripping oils from about six inches above the body followed by a series of feather and deep pressure strokes along the back, neck, and Vita Flex points. A hot compress is then applied to facilitate absorption of the oils and to relax the muscles. The oils penetrate the soft tissue within 20 minutes. Its soothing effects are stress relieving and incredibly relaxing.
9 different Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils, a V-6 oil blend, and Ortho Ease oil blend are used in the technique. The essential oils include:
- Valor – Blends of Rosewood, Blue Tansy, Frankincense and Spruce
- Oregano (Origanum compactum)
- Thyme (Thymus vulgaris)
- Basil (Ocimum basilicum)
- Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens)
- Wintergreen (Faultheria procumbens)
- Marjoram (Origanum majorana)
- Peppermint (Mentha piperita)
- Aroma Siez – Blends of Basil, Cypress, Marjoram and Lavender
