The only Rain Drop therapy that I've heard of was started by Young Living Essential Oils. Basically it uses essential oils "neat" (undiluted) directly on the body and it is quite expensive as the oils are not diluted.

There are a number of oils used as well---for specific treatments.

I've had the treatment once and it was very relaxing--very little massage was done, but overall it was a good experience. I was extraordinarily tired after the massage and for several hours after.

Hope that helps!

Thanx Angela for you answer,
but its just to relax? What effect have at the spine?
When I scheduled the appointment, that was what I was asking for---so while there were quite a few oils applied along the spine, they were applied in other places as well. I'm limited to that experience, but perhaps Young Living has something on their website that would explain? Maybe googling Raindrop Therapy Practitioners would pull up information?

The Raindrop Technique is one of Young Living's most popular essential oil collections. This energizing technique has been used for years as a highly effective method for balancing and rejuvenating the mind and body. The essential oils found in Young Living's Raindrop collection penetrate the skin and promote energy and vitality. When oils are properly applied to the neck, back, and feet, this technique can bring about electrial alignment and helps relieve a variety of discomforts caused by imbalances in the body, especially tose found in the spine. a video is enclosed so anyone can learn this technigue.

The oils used are: Basil, Cypress, Marjoram, Oregano, Peppermint, Thyme, Wintergreen, Aroma Siez and Valor.

I just happen to be a Young Living Distributor and have this collection of oils and have used it on several clients. They love it. www.youngliving.com
Thanks Darcy! I knew that someone would be able to post something of value!!! I really enjoyed the experience---and by the way, the Purification oil by Young Living is my absolute favorite!!!!!

Hello J

Yes Raindrop therapy is a method Gary Young developed utilizing his medicinal essential oils. He combined his techniques along with some native american. He does mention that it can help assist or correct spinal problems such as scoliosis. Please understand that there is much controversary on his claims and if you really listen to his tape, he utilizes some 'chiropractic' types of manipulations. These claims are not based solely on the use of the oils. Some of the oils have been thought to relieve possible viruses along the spine, that may be causing some misalignmnent. No actual valid research and proof to my knowledge. Also, as Darcy mentions it is an energetic or electrical alignment and not a structural as many believe.

I am also a distributor for their oils. I love the quality of the oils and the blends are fabulous.
Many of these oils in the Raindrop technique are POTENT and one must use caution. Some are contraindicated in pregnancy. Some may burn or irritate your clients skin, so please use Caution!

I offer trainings in this technique as well and LMT's are always glad they did more than the DVD offered with the oils.
OHHHH Really Thank you to all, now I can understand. I have a client with scoliosis and I want to try something new with her. Now I want to study Raindrop Therapy, lol
Now the problem is where I can take the seminar at Puerto Rico, jeje..
But Thanks to all. Muakkks!

J. go to www.youngliving.com and ask if they have a distributor there. They just may have someone there to help you. Good luck!
I know I'm not going to make any friends with this comment, but I have to put it out there in the interest of variety of opinions. I'm a certified aromatherapist and I don't like the Raindrop Therapy. My first reason, is that I've never seen any independent research to support what it claims to do. The second is, if you have to use a specific brand name (which you do in this case b/c it uses blends only created by Young's Living and recipes for blends are not public knowledge) then it's not a "therapy"; it's a marketing tool. And the third is, most of the world-wide education on essential oils says DON'T use them neat (100% cencentrated).
I know, I know. A lot of people, especially in the states, swear by this technique. . . I just think it's more about marketing a product then it is about a therapy. My two cents. . . feel free to ignore it.
Well here you can have a friend, I'm not mad with you knowledge, I'm glad to read it, because I love to know both side of my coins. So, thank u very much!

Blessed Be!

I do not take any offense either.
I agree that there has not been adequate research and as I mentioned the oils themselves
are not performing the adjustments. If one really pays attention to the training/techniques, it is actually a osteopathic manipulation which we cannot perform

Also those oils are volatile on the skin. I always apply lavender first if I use them because it burnt my skin and has done similar to others. I and others have gotten nauseous as well with some of the oils, for example: basil. So if you decide to try these oils PLEASE BE CAREFUL and get adequately trained. This is all chemistry as Kat I'm sure will agree.

There is much controversary on these oils YES. I personally resisted Young Living and the whole MLM for many years! I'm not confident with the raindrop oils, but I must say the Pan Away healed my tendonitis after 8 months of nothing else working. Was it his oils? or would have similar been effective? Possibly so!
