The Native Lakota tradition tells of a tribal journey far north into Canada to witness the Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights.
The legend states that when they arrived, tribal members reached upward into the night sky while deeply inhaling the healing power from the dancing lights and electromagnetic energy into their bodies and into their spine, which they believed healed them from many kinds of disease.
Later, they developed a technique using feathers to simulate the ability of the Northern Lights to heal their minds, bodies, and spirits.
This beautiful tradition is the inspiration for Young Living’s Raindrop Technique.
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 Technique penetrate the skin and promote energy and vitality. When oils are properly applied to the neck, the back and feet, this technique can bring an electrical alignment and help to relieve a variety of discomforts caused by imbalances in the body especially those found in the spine.
Raindrop Therapy has received high praise from many users around the world for its ability to help ameliorate spinal abnormalities (scoliosis and kyphosis) and facilitate tissue cleansing.
It 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 the back surgery for thousands of people.
It integrates Vita Flex and other massage techniques with the power of essential oils in bringing the body into a structural and electrical alignment.
Essential oils are some of the most powerful inhibitors of microbes known, and thus may pose as an important new weapon in combating many types of tissue infections.
Raindrop Therapy uses a sequence of highly antimicrobial essential oils designed to simultaneously reduce inflammation and kill the responsible viral agents.
The principle single oils used include: thyme, oregano, wintergreen/birch, cypress, peppermint, basil and marjoram.
Thyme oil exhibits strong action against stubborn gram-negative bacteria. Similarly, basil essential oil also demonstrates strong bactericidal action against microorganisms (Aeromonas hydrophila and Pseudomonas fluorescens).
A study at the Central Food Technological Institute in Mysore, India, found that a large number of essential oils components had tremendous germ-killing effects, inhibiting the growth of Staphylococcus, Micrococcus, Basillus and Enterobacter strains of bacteria. These compounds included menthol (found in peppermint oil), eucalyptol (found in rosemary and geranium ), linalool (found in marjoram) and citral (found in lemongrass). A 2001 study by Sue Chao and colleagues at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, found that oregano, thyme, peppermint and basil exhibited very strong antimicrobial effects against pathogens such as Streptococcus pneumoniae, a major cause of illness in young children, and death in elderly and immune-weakened patients. Many other studies confirm these findings.
The oils are dispensed like little drops of rain from a height of about 6 inches above the back and massaged along the vertebrae and back muscles.
Although the entire process takes about 55 minutes to complete, the oils will continue to work in the body for up to one week following treatment, with continued realignment taking place during this time.
Raindrop Therapy is one of the safest, non-invasive techniques available in Vibrational Medicine. It is also an invaluable tool to promote healing within, using topically applied essential oils.
