The Raindrop technique derives its name from the art of dripping unadulterated, therapeutic grade essential oils onto the body like rain, so the oils interact with the physical body as well as its energy field. This was inspired by the American Indian belief that raindrops falling from a height may purify & cleanse the body & spirit. The oils are “feathered in” which Gary Young adapted from American Indian traditions. Because the essential oils easily penetrate the body, the techniques works on deep levels of the body without requiring hard pressure or force.
The RD Technique also uses Vita Flex, which is an ancient Tibetan technique that predates modern reflexology. This is performed on the spinal reflexes of the feet, using the same essential oils as in the Raindrop technique. This combination makes for a profound experience, for the practitioner who is offering the technique & for the client who is receiving it. This technique promotes deep relaxation & energy balance.
The oils traditionally used in Raindrop Technique are: oregano, thyme, basil, cypress, wintergreen, marjoram, & peppermint along with the oil blends of valor & aroma size. A carrier oil such as V6, or jojoba oil, is also used.
