Raindrop ® is effective for spinal/body alignment and effective balancing of the entire body, mind and spirit.
Gentle manipulation of the spine releases and re-aligns the vertebrae. Addition of the healing oils, dropped from a short distance on the spine, address the whole body systems, including the field around our body. Applying healing oils to reflex points on feet and other places, enhances the overall balancing and restorative effect.
I have had very good results using Raindrop ® for eliviating Asthma, Bronchitis, Strep, Shingles, Chicken Pox, and to recover from anesthesia. For more info, read here...
Theoretical information on this page is from the CARE Raindrop ® training I took.
Raindrop ® is a combination of various aspects of conventional massage, adaptations of Oriental acupressure and reflexology (Vita Flex), Native American healing techniques and Aromatic Sciences using the potent line of Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils.
The purpose of Raindrop technique ® is to stimulate every organ, muscle and bone of the body at a cellular level through the oils, boosting the immune system, bringing the body into structural/electrical balance, and enabling the release of toxins or disease wherever they may be lodged- including those illnesses lodged in the mind and emotions. Raindrop Technique is a non-secular art and science. It is performed around your spine and on your feet, where the reflexes for the spine lie.
As you know, your spine is your life line – all the nerves in your body are connected to your spine: for your lungs, sinuses, heart, stomach, liver, etc.. Besides, certain microorganisms lodge in your lymph and spine, especially the ones from modern immunization, and contribute to deformities. "These pathogens create inflammation, which in turn, contorts and disfigures the spinal column" - Gary Young. Please read document1 and document2 for more on this topic. I also included Raindrop testimonials below.
Raindrop ® is preceded by VitaFlex ("Vitality Through the Reflexes" (Stanley Burroughs)
How VitaFlex Works
The voltages produced by Vitaflex induce currents along the nerve pathways. The molecules of essential oils are also electrical in nature and move along nerve pathways. Sickness is often the result of blocked nerve pathways. Vitaflex helps move the healing molecules of essential oils along these pathways. When a gap or malfunction is encountered along the way, the oils and voltages jump-start faulty electrical circultry, helping to restore proper function.
Vitaflex, an ancient Tibetan healing methodology, means “vitality through the reflexes”. It consists of a specialized form of digital electrical stimulation using the pads and nails of the fingers in a rolling motion to fire voltages into the body through reflex points. Vitaflex is effective as a technique in and of itself while aromatherapy is also effective independent of any other modality. By combining the two techniques, the effectiveness of both is enhanced.
Simply put, Vitaflex, is a Reflexology massage, which can be used anywhere on your body, depending on where the help is needed. The good news is – it does not hurt, and when combined with essential oils, it takes only 30 seconds for the oils to get absorbed by your body! And, of course, these precious oils are loaded with healing powers and nutrients.
Raindrop ® is powerful for a few reasons:
1. The essential oils used are beneficial for every body system
2. The essential oils are dripped on the spine, your life-line, stimulating and balancing nerve connection to every part of the body
3. Raindrop ® technique relaxes vertebrae, thereby helping to straighten and lengthen your spine
4. Many oils are dripped on the spine and back, to address the body and mind as a whole, as well as any special health concern
5. A hot wet towel compress feels like haven at the end
6. Balancing/aligning body's physical and emotional energies, done with Valor, is essential
7. Reflexology feet massage (Vitaflex) on the spinal and other reflexes with the essential oils for every body system is done before Raindrop ®
When I first learnt Raindrop technique ® , I practiced it on a lady who is a preacher and a Reiki practitioner. She got about 1 inch taller after my musical hands performed the Raindrop ® technique on her!
We finished Raindrop ® with Peppermint oil and a hot compress – you can only imagine how I felt! I felt great and even did not want to move! I drank a ton of water too – the cleansing was that effective!
Note: I used Raindrop oils on my son's arm, when it was overused from pitching. He went to play baseball soon after and did not have pain.

Note: Should you not have anyone to do Raindrop ® on you, you can do Raindrop ® on your feet (VitaFlex) yourself. (mix the essential oils in a bottle: Valor - 25 drops, Oregano - 10 drops, and 5 drops for the rest of the oils: Thyme, Basil, Aroma Siez, Wintergreen, Cypress, Marjoram, and Peppermint.

Identifying the Right Body System with Essential Oils by David Stewart
An interesting and useful procedure Iearned from Gary Young for identifying the right body system or source underlying a problem when using essential oils for therapeutic purposes.
With your client lying face up about to receive a Raindrop ® session, do vitaflex with specific oils on the spinal points of the feet. While vitaflexing, ask the client to focus mentally on their chief complaint (pain, issue, disease).
After each oil has been applied, ask if the issue is perceived as “better?” “same?” or “worse?” If they perceive the problem as “better,” then the indicated system or cause has been identified. If perceived as the “same” or “worse,” then move on to the next oil until you find the right one. In some cases, instead of
A sequence is given below as a guide, but you can skip certain steps if you feel drawn to do so. Use the protocol and go with your intuition on the choice of oils. For the:

There are many ways to learn how to do Raindrop, including an instructive DVD that comes with the kit. In addition, there are independent DVDs (www.raindroptraining.com), local and company-sponsored workshops and new and improved written instructions. The Essential Oils Desk Reference has an easy to follow how-to guide, with helpful photos. You can purchase the Essential Oils Desk Reference (4th edition is the latest). It's the best single educational investment you can make for learning about Young Living's essential oils and products, and aromatherapy in general.
Younglivingworld.com has instructions on the Raindrop Technique ® (from Gary Young's first book, "Aromatherapy, the Essential Beginning"), as well as instructions on Vitaflex and a great Vitaflex foot chart. Check it out at http://www.younglivingworld.com. Click on Free Training (under Resources on the left side of the page), and then click on Raindrop Technique.
It's fun to learn and practice with a friend or family member. Here are a few things to remember to maximize Raindrop® results:
· Make sure the room is warm and quiet. Turn off phones and other noise-making objects.
· Be present and relaxed. Everything works better when we take the time to settle down and connect to ourselves and the person receiving the treatment.
· The oils work! It doesn't really matter if you do something a little differently from the instructions or if you forget something. Your full presence and intention for facilitating body repair, combined with the oils are an unbeatable combination.
· Best not to talk a lot during the session, but do check in from time to time to see if the person is comfortable, especially after applying the hot oils. Have the V-6 handy to cool down any area that feels hot.
· After the session is over, let the receiver rest for a while and then offer a glass of purified water.
Wishing you well!
What I have seen over the years is that everyone does the Raindrop Technique a little (or a lot ) differently. I originally taught it to myself from the only printed version that was available in 1996. At that time there were no classes and the only way to observe the process in action was to see Gary Young do it, and he did it differently every single time. I got together with my friends who were also interested and curious and we experimented together. I made a little "cheat sheet" so I could remember the sequence of the oils and how to apply them.
FROM VICKI OPFER:
Have you ever done a Raindrop, just on your feet? It's marvelous!!!
I apply each one of the oils, in the sequence that I would use in a Raindrop, mostly to the bottoms of the feet, but using what's left on my hands to also rub the tops of the feet. This is a miracle for tired, painful feet!!!
The sequence is: Valor, oregano, thyme, basil, wintergreen, cypress, marjoram, peppermint, Aroma Siez, and Ortho Ease. I use about 2 drops of oregano and thyme, and about 3 - 4 drops of each of the other oils, on each foot. In fact, if you ever wished you could have a Raindrop (on your back), and don't have anyone nearby trained and available - give yourself a Raindrop on your own feet! The oils go up and throughout the whole body and you'll feel wonderful.
