The Raindrop Technique, developed by D. Gary Young, ND (Naturopathic Doctor). and a Lakota medicine man more than two decades ago, uses a sequence of nine highly immune enhancing essential oils. They are dropped like rain from a height of about 6 inches onto the spine and then lightly massaged in using various hand-to-body techniques. Combines the art of aromatherapy with the techniques of Vita Flex and massage in the application of essential oils. This stimulates energy impulses and disperses the oils along the nervous system throughout the entire body.
Supporting to the Immune System
We all carry viruses and bacteria that can deplete the immune system. 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. With essential oils applied via the Raindrop Technique, the body can be brought into balance and the energy centers can be cleared and re-aligned. The Raindrop Technique also helps reduce spinal inflammation, creates an inhospitable environment for the viruses that hibernate along the spinal column, and may help to straighten any spinal curvatures. The curvature of the spine was the main reason this technique was developed. Although a session lasts about 45 minutes to an hour, the oils will continue to work in the body for a minimum of a week following the treatment.
Before getting my first rain drop session I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew it was going to smell good but didn’t expect to notice any changes. Once Rhonda started working the oils up my spine I felt a deep sense of relaxation. After, I felt more relaxed than I ever had previously after an hour massage. I look forward to my next one and I encourage anyone looking for a natural solution for stress management or other ailments to schedule a rain drop session with Rhonda.
Its literal meaning is 'vitality through the reflexes and originated in Tibet thousands of years before acupuncture. Raindrop Technique combines the benefits of aromatherapy with light massage and Vita Flex to stimulate every organ, muscle, and bone of the body at a cellular level through the benefit of therapeutic-grade essential oils. In contrast to the steady stimulation of reflexology, Vita Flex uses a rolling and releasing motion. It is based on a complete network of reflex points that stimulate all the internal body systems. When the fingers connect to specific reflex points an electric charge is released that sends energy through the neuroelectrical circuit. Once the energy finds a gap in the circuit, it repairs the break in the pathway that is creating imbalance.
Not Your Typical Massage
Because Raindrop Technique is a non-manipulative modality, it is highly beneficial for those recovering from injury. It uses light touch to stimulate the nerves and muscles while allowing the oils to do all the work. Many of the oils used in the technique are relaxing to both voluntary muscles and involuntary muscles. One very important involuntary muscle is your heart, which keeps beating all day and night without you thinking about it. Also the reproductive organs and diaphragm. Other involuntary muscles help digest food and are found in your stomach and intestines. It takes guts to be an involuntary muscle! Voluntary muscles include all of the motor muscles of the arms, legs, back, abdomen, neck, and face.
When I first heard of Raindrop Therapy I was a bit uncertain how strategically placed essential oils would relieve my aching back. I knew little about essential oils other than that I appreciated the benefits of them in my diffuser. I was shocked and amazed at the pain relief and the calming effect on my body. This is an amazing modality, one that shocked me how effective essential oils can be at healing the body. Rhonda has extensive knowledge of pure essential oils, their healing benefits, and how to incorporate them into this amazing treatment. I highly recommend it to anybody who is looking for stress relief and joint pain.
Children Respond Quickly
Many physical and emotional problems become dim or completely disappear as the root of the emotions is discovered and released. Raindrop Technique has vast benefits only to be realized by the individual, unlike anyone else, and is very personal and specific to each person’s needs.
Children tend to respond even faster than adults because they do not have any preconceived ideas about what they want to have happened or experience. They just love it and often fall asleep while the essential oils and the touch of massage fill them with peace and contentment as body systems harmonize together.
