I fell in love with the Raindrop Technique years ago, when I was a distributor for Young Living Essential Oils. I did not fall in love with MLM. I left Young Living and all other mlm-structured businesses years ago but still love their essential oils, particularly the Valor blend, which is a key component in the Raindrop Technique.
This natural healing technique is delicious, luxurious and relaxing. During the Raindrop Technique process, essential oils are applied along the spine. The person applying the oils uses a specific type of stroke called Vita-Flex, which is taught in the PDR of Essential Oils and on videos by Gary Young, available on youtube.
The particular essential oils chosen for application during the Raindrop Technique are potently perfect for creating a powerful healing effect.
The combined properties of these specific pure essential oils pack a powerful antiviral and antibacterial punch while also relaxing muscles and delighting the senses.
Essential Oils used in the Raindrop Technique:
A lot of the aromatherapy oils used in the Raindrop Technique will be familiar to massage therapists and aromatherapists: Thyme, oregano, basil, marjoram, peppermint, cypress and wintergreen, to name a few; other oils chosen for this delicious experience are essential oil blends which are specific to the Young Living line of essential oils, such as Valor and AromaSeiz.
How a Raindrop Technique is done:
There are variations to this technique, as there usually are with most techniques in body care. I am just sharing a bit of information for those who might be interested in experiencing the Raindrop Technique.
To begin with, the Valor E.O. Blend (as mentioned earlier, Valor is a blend exclusive to Young Living and I do love it though I don't love the mlm structure it is sold under) on both feet and on both shoulders. These points are held and this part of the technique is extremely relaxing for most people.
Then, one by one 5 to 6 drops of the other essential oils are dropped along the spine. With each oil that is dropped and smoothed along the spinal column, there is a series of Vita-Flex movements that follow. This enjoyable and feather-light stroke involves contact between the spinal area and the finger nails as they lightly move up the spine. I love the way the Vita-Flex stroke feels but it is also very different from any type of massage therapy that you might be used to getting so it kinda has to be experienced.
If you want to learn more about giving the Raindrop Technique, getting a session is a good way to start, as is taking a class. Keep in mind, if taking a class, that the oils are usually not included and buying them may be a bigger investment than the class itself.
Expect to spend around a hundred dollars for the essential oils kit for doing the Raindrop Technique. Contact me if you are interested in learning the Raindrop Technique . You may also order the PDR for Essential oils book but frankly, I'd have a hard time figuring it out just from the written word. It helps a lot to actually experience it and to see how it's done. I think you may actually have to order this book through Young Living. Couldn't find it online and I got mine when I was a distributor, before I gave up on mlm.
Health Disclaimer: While the Raindrop Technique can sometimes produce powerful cleansing and detoxing and can assist the body by way of potent, potent antivirals and antibacterial properties in the essential oils, it is not claimed here that it will cure anything. If you are dealing with medical conditions requiring treatment, please check with the appropriate healthcare professional. Also realize that a qualified aromatherapist is knowledgeable about essential oils in a way that the casual user is not. So consulting with an aromatherapists before using E.O.'s is good advice. Aromatherapy or the therapeutic use of essential oils is not presented here as replacement for any medical attention or evaluation you may need.
