Raindrop Technique For over a decade, I have watched professionals – from chiropractors to osteopaths, medical doctors, naturopaths, physical therapists and massage therapists – apply this technique with profound response and success. — D. Gary Young Raindrop Technique™ is a truly remarkable procedure that combines a variety of energetic and natural modalities. Developed by D. Gary Young in the 1980's, it includes the use of several powerful essential oils which support the immune system, both as aromatics and as direct topical agents in effleurage or finger-stroking, applying through a series of specific techniques for the spinal muscles, and moist heat via a warm compress.
D. Gary Young developed the Raindrop Technique® based on (1) his research with essential oils as effective in strengthening the body's natural defenses, (2) his knowledge of the Vita Flex technique and its reflect points in the feet, and (3) information on finger stroking and its effect on the muscles and the nervous system which he learned from the Lakota people in South Dakota.
While visiting with the Lakota people, Gary learned that for several generations, before the US/Canadian border was established, the Lakota Indians migrated across the Canadian border into the northern regions of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. There, they often witnessed the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis. Those who were ill or had complicated problems would stand facing the Aurora Borealis, hold their hands toward the lights, and inhale deeply. The Lakota believed that when the Aurora Borealis was visible, the air was charged with healing energy. They would mentally 'inhale' this energy whispering "Woimnayankel", and stretch their arms and hands out to receive this energy, then release the energy to the person, allowing the energy to pass through their spine and on to other areas of the body through neurological pathways. Many experienced dramatic transformative effects through this practice. (excerpt from Essential Oils Desk Reference, 4th Edition)
Despite initial skepticism, as the years have gone by and dramatic positive results continue to accumulate, study after study has suppported and verified the principles upon which Raindrop Technique™ is based. As this research accumulates, it is becoming clear that the elements of Raindrop Technique™ may help support the immune system, but also benefit significantly other body systems including mental and emotional functions.
Of the 416 people we surveyed who had received Raindrop treatments, the overwhelming majority reported their experience was positive (97%), pleasant (98%), made them feel better afterward (98%), and resulted in improved wellness (89%). 99.9% said they would choose to receive Raindrop again. — David Stewart, PhD, in "A Statistical Validation of Raindrop Technique"
