Years ago, the founder of Young Living, Gary Young ND, studied with members of the Lakota tribe to learn more about their ceremonies, their rituals, and their mending ways. He learned from one of the elders about how the Lakota in the past used to travel to the far north to experience the electricity and energetic mending from the northern lights.
In recent history borders between Canada and the US developed that restricted what once was easy travel to the northern lights. The elder told him his people have tried to re-create the energetic mending experience without actually being really close to the aurora borealis and feeling its amazing power. This is the basis for how and why the Raindrop Technique® was developed. Dr. Young integrated this electrical energetic surge of energy experience up and down the spine using a series of nine oils to create a powerful mending technique.
The Raindrop Technique® uses Vita Flex, reflexology, massage techniques, and essential oils applied on various locations of the body to bring it structural and electrical alignment. It is designed to bring balance to the body with its relaxing and mild application. It will help align the energy centers of the body and release them if blocked, without using hard pressure or trying to force the body to change, which should never be done. Essential oils are administered to the spine in Raindrop therapy to cleanse deep seated toxins along the spinal column, correct spinal curvature and stimulate the nerve centers of the body to fire more efficiently.
