What is the Raindrop Technique? Raindrop Technique is a truly remarkable procedure that combines a variety of energy medicine and natural medicine modalities. Developed by D. Gary Young in the 1980's, it includes the use of several anti-bacterial essential oils (both as aromatics and as direct topical agents, effleurage or finger-stroking, massage through a series of specific techniques for the spinal muscles, and moist heat via a warm compress). Since its development over 20 years ago it has brought relief to thousands suffering chronic back pain and has saved many from expensive surgical procedures.
Raindrop involves the amazing power of essential oils (which are dispensed in small, rain-like drops about six inches above the body), mixed with a variety of massage techniques, including back massage, Vita Flex massage and heat application. The technique is designed to bring the body back into structural and electrical alignment. Often, many spinal problems and misalignments are caused by or exacerbated by toxins (such as viruses) that lie dormant within the spinal column. The use of essential oils helps to dispose of these toxins and viruses within the spine, helping its structure to return to normal.
The raindrop technique is a great way to provide a healthy balance to the body. Essential oils also stimulate the nerves and re-growth of tissue.
"Only Raindrop combines three critical therapeutic elements: 1. essential oils, 2. manual technique, 3. acupressure points; giving you three therapies in one." - Carrie Donegan & Elena Yordan (authors of the YL-90 Plan)
