Raindrop Technique: What is it?
What is Raindrop Technique?
Raindrop Technique® draws on the vibrational qualities of 9 pure therapeutic grade young living essential oils. Raindrop technique is a spine tingling wonderfully uplifting, nourishing and delicious massage like experience. The 9 Young Living essential oils used are the highest grade therapeutic oils I have found to date. This technique nourishes the body, mind and spirit.
A Spine Tingling Sensation
Imagine the sensation of sinking into a deep and blissful state of relaxation as someone does an ancient Tibetan version of reflexology on your feet with 8 different aromatic oils that is both healing and balancing. Then you roll over to have more therapeutic grade oils rain-dropped up your spine and massaged into your tired muscles. These oils are feathered in using a spine-tingling technique inspired by the Native American Indians. This is combined with a wonderful therapeutic massage which assists your spine and body to manifest it’s own innate healing power to realign while combating any viral, fungal or bacterial problems. This technique can be learnt by anyone and adapted to suit individuals and children. Raindrop is energetically uplifting, clearing and revitalising.
Gary Young Founder of Raindrop
Raindrop was formulated by Naturopath, Visionary and Founder of Young Living Essential Oils Gary Young. He suffered a terrible accident and was wheelchair bound for years. It was thought he would never walk again. Through natural therapies and the use of the therapeutic qualities of essential oils his body healed. Inspired by his own recovery he devoted his life to exploring the use of essential oils as ‘natures remedies’. He was and is an inspiration and I have been blessed to work alongside of him with raindrop at the YL convention in 2009 doing raindrop technique.
The Spine & The Nervous System
Our spine is the central pillar of our body. It holds us upright with good posture and connects us from earth to sky. Through the spine run the spinal nerves linking to our central nervous system in the brain. And at certain junctures the spinal nerves leave the spinal cord to extend branches extending to every part of the body. This allows nerve impulses to flow from the brain to the body and from the body to the brain. So the spinal is the connecting highway between body and brain.
Energetics of The Spine
Energy also courses through our spine and along the spinal length are situated the 7 major chakra’s or energy centres. The main column of energy running through the spine is called sushumna. Like the nervous system at the major plexuses (called Chakras) energy networks branch off to supply every organ. Energy is very delicately balanced and when we are not in flow it becomes blocked.
The Chakra System
These 7 major chakras are like sub-stations of energy supplying the body areas and organs associated with them. For various reasons whether they be emotional, physical, injury or stress related the flow of vital energy may become blocked or lowered.
This can cause exhaustion or a lack of flow in some area of our physicality. If reduced energy flow occurs over a long period of time then the areas receiving less energy become affected. Deprived of optimal energy or prana (life force) these organs or body parts may experience dis-ease in some form.
