Comprised of the Lakota practice of effleurage, coupled with therapeutic grade essential oils and vita flex, Raindrop Technique was developed by D. Gary Young, N.D. founder of Young Living Essentials Oils These techniques were taught to him by a Lakota medicine man, Wallace Black Elk. In the Lakota Native American healing practices, healers sweep a feather upwards along the spine imitating the Northern Lights, Aurora Borealis, which are revered for their healing effects. Eventually, the Lakota began to use effleurage; a feather finger stroking which became associated with this healing technique.
The Raindrop Technique has received praise for its help with relaxation, emotional release, tissue cleansing and assistance with ailments. It is the profound natural “intelligence” of the antibacterial, antiviral essential oils which facilitate healing by enhancing the systems of the body; detoxifying and balancing the body. Clinical research has shown that the bio-frequencies of the essential oils can raise the frequencies of the human body assisting in health and healing.
During a Raindrop Technique session, with undergarments on, the patient lies on their stomach on a massage table. The oils are dropped onto the body from approximately six inches above the spine, moved along the vertebrae and back muscles with skillful touch and varying motions. 9 essential oils; 7 single oils and 2 therapeutic blends are applied. Once the oils are applied, a technique called vita flex which enhances the benefits of essential oils is utilized. Vita Flex is used on the feet and along the spine. Next, a hot compress consisting of a warm towel and water bottle is placed which further enhances the effectiveness of the essential oils. Vita flex is then applied to the legs. Session duration is one hour.
For individuals with sensitive skin or allergies the oils may cause some reddening or excessive warming of the skin.
Not recommended for pregnant or nursing women.
