Raindrop Technique



Raindrop technique originated in the 1980s from the research of D. Gary Young working with a Lakota medicine man named Wallace Black Elk. It integrates Vita-Flex and massage, utilizing the power of essential oils in bringing the body into structural and electrical alignment.

Raindrop is based on the theory that viruses and bacteria that lie dormant along the spine can cause illnesses and many types of scoliosis and spinal misalignment. During the years that it has been practiced, it has resolved numerous cases of scoliosis and kyphosis and eliminated the need for back surgery for thousands of people.

Raindrop uses a sequence of highly anti-microbial essential oils designed to simultaneously reduce inflammation and kill the responsible viral agents. The oils are dispensed like little drops of rain from a height of about 6 inches above the back and massaged along the vertebrae and back muscles. Although the entire process takes about 45 minutes to complete, the oils will continue to work in the body for up to one week following treatment, with continued re-alignment taking place.

Essential oils are so small in molecular size that they can quickly penetrate the tissues of the skin. They contain oxygen molecules, which help to transport nutrients to starving human cells, which in turn enhance the immune system. Essential oils have a bioelectrical frequency that is several times greater than the frequency of herbs, food, and even the human body. They contain amino acids, the building blocks of protein.


Oils used are; oregano, thyme, cypress, basil, peppermint, and marjoram and wintergreen.
