Raindrop Therapy combines aromatherapy, reflexology, and more to create a healing and cleansing massage. Raindrop Technique combines unique, targeted massage and energy approaches with pure, authentic essential oils for a deeply harmonizing, rejuvenating, and relaxing experience. The technique, developed by Young Living Founder and CEO D. Gary Young, draws from his experience with Native American wellness traditions and provides a revolutionary means of nurturing harmony—physically, mentally, and emotionally. The purpose of the therapy is to bring total balance, a sense of harmony, and body wellness including mental, physical, and emotional through the techniques used.
9 essential oils are used in raindrop: 7 single oils and 2 therapeutic blends.
***Raindrop Therapy is not recommended for people with botanical allergies or sensitive skin.
Many of the essential oils used in raindrop therapy are thought to be easily absorbed by the body.
Balance and re-align the energy centers of the body – The combination of techniques brings electrical and structural alignment to the body. The essential oil blend of Valor helps the body align. The oils help support the body to come back into balance by opening energy flow throughout the body.
Lavender helps reduce stress and minor anxiety – Not only can the oils enhance positive emotions such as joy and happiness, but they can also help release negative emotions that are subconsciously stored on a cellular level.
Aid the body’s natural response to irritation and injury – Thyme and Oregano support the immune, respiratory, nervous, and other body systems. They are strong antioxidants.
Eases muscle discomfort after exercise – Muscles that are tense and in minor discomfort due to exercise will also benefit. Basil, Wintergreen, Marjoram, Cypress and Peppermint essential oils may reduce tension.
Support healthy immune system – Thyme and Oregano essential oils support a healthy immune system.
Emotional wellbeing and release – Essential oils effect the limbic system where emotions are stored in the “brain’s emotional computer”.
Help detox the body systems – The oils being high in phenols may cleanse cellular receptor sites and enhance cleansing of the body.
A person receiving raindrop lays face down as oils are dropped up their back from a height of 6-12 inches. The oils are gently massaged in with feathering motion. Vitaflex, a foot reflexology technique, is used to apply the same oils to the spine reflexology points at the beginning of the raindrop.
