What is Raindrop Technique?


Raindrop Technique is..... 

"RAINDROP technique is a powerful, non-invasive tool for assisting the body in correcting defects in the curvature of the spine. 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 Technique originated in the 1980s from the research of Dr. Gary Young working with a Lakota medicine man named Wallace Black Elk. It integrates Vitaflex technique with the power of essential oils in bringing the body into structural and electrical alignment." (from the Essential Oils Desk Reference)

Raindrop Technique uses a sequence of essential oils that are immune enhancing, support the body's natural defenses, as well as the circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, digestive, nervous, and other body systems. These oils, which are high in antioxidants, are also mood elevating and antiseptic, creating an unfavorable environment for harmful viruses and bacteria that can hibernate in the body. Essential oils are known to boost stamina and energy, help you relax, help manage stress and frustration and promote overall health, vitality, and longevity. The principal single oils used include:

  • Thyme (Thymus vulgaris)
  • Oregano (Origanum compactum)
  • Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens)
  • Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens)
  • Peppermint (Mentha piperita)
  • Basil (Ocimum basilicum)
  • Marjoram (Origanum majorana)

The oils are dispensed in little drops from a height of about six inches above the back, which is where Raindrop Technique gets its name. They are then massaged along the spine and back muscles. They are also applied to the feet.

The whole process takes about an hour and may continue to work in the body for up to one week following a Raindrop Session, with possible realignment and bodily adjustment taking place during this time.

"Raindrop Technique is not a cure-all or a magic bullet. A healthy balanced body is the result of a well-rounded program of exercise and proper diet. Health is everything we do, say, hear, see, and eat. The Raindrop Technique is only one tool to help restore balance in the body that will result in good health." (from the Essential Oils Desk Reference")

Many professionals, including chiropractors, massage therapists, osteopaths, reflexologists, and certified aromatherapists have found Raindrop and Vitaflex techniques to be an excellent addition to the repertoire of their practices.

Scientific documentation on the results of raindrop has been compiled in many books, such as the Statistical Validation of Raindrop Technique by Dr. David Stewart.

Vibrational Raindrop Technique

Vibrational Raindrop Technique, brings together the power of vibrational frequency from tuning forks and the healing energetic frequency of Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils. This version of tuning fork application is taken from Acutonics, which has been studied and used in vibrational healing for many years. In her research, Dr. Christi Bonds has discovered and created a powerful energetic and balancing tool for the body.  She took the anointed research from Gary Young who created Raindrop Technique, and blended the two.
So, what is Raindrop Technique?  It is a sequence of anointing the body with oils and laying hands on the body that enables structural and electrical alignment in a relaxing and invigorating manner through the power of essential oils. There are many versions of a Raindrop Technique, and the oils that are used in a session can vary, although I personally use the detailed and original work of Gary which has been maintained by CARE, Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education.

Tuning Forks -Tuning Forks are paired to create ‘intervals’ of sound, starting with the Unison forks (two forks of identical frequency) and moving along to the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and Octave positions.  A Raindrop Technique with Tuning Forks always incorporates two tuning forks at the same time to produce harmonic musical intervals. Each interval has a related frequency and specific qualities that are combined with complementary essential oils at each part of the session. All of this is based on the Earth’s rotation using mathematical equations and frequencies, as well as other planetary rotations and their varying frequencies.
This correlates beautifully to the musical scales of the piano, familiar to you as maybe…do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do.

Sound Energy – When playing Middle C on the piano, it vibrates at 261.63Hz, while an octave lower vibrates at half that rate or 130.82Hz, thus a 2:1 ratio of frequency. An Interval is the sound created when 2 tones or pitches are sounded at the same time, or two tuning forks are tapped at the same time…the meeting of the two waves of these two tones. Some intervals are naturally pleasing to us: the Octave, 5ths, 4ths…”perfect intervals.” There is much more to the theory, including consonant, dissonant, and overtone aspects that bring the session into a deep and amazing healing place. But the idea of SOUND, as an energy form, measured in amplitudes and cycles per second, as frequency, can be measured… and this relates directly to our everyday lives.
