Raindrop and Vitaflex Therapy

Raindrop and Vitaflex Therapy 


Raindrop and Vitaflex Therapy was developed by Gary Young. He became the World Leader in Essential Oils. He was inspired after speaking to a Lakota Indian named Wallace Black Elk, who explained the tradition of the Lakota people during the Aurora Borealis. The tribe went up to the northern forests and prepared for winter by clearing their bodies and auras of any traumas and creating health for the coming months. Gary Young and his wife developed their first organic herb farming and distillation operation in 1993 establishing Young Living in 1994. Young Living designed and built the largest, most technologically advanced essential oil distillery for high quality essential oils in North America.


Gary later developed the Raindrop Technique and the ten specific essential oils used during the treatment. The oils work to cleanse the body of bacterial, viral and fungal pathogens, cleanse the cell receptors so they can function properly and correct any dna mutations and imbalances so the body is freed from emotional, physical and mental stress.  It is especially helpful for backpain and skeletal, muscular and neural problems. It is also highly relaxing and works on the whole body including the aura.  By dropping the oils from above the body the aura is cleansed and vibrational energy raised to help the person's natural healing abilities to activate.

 The technique was first brought to the UK in 2000. The technique has assisted many people to improve from all manner of conditions, both physical and emotional. The technique is technically in two parts. The first part is Vitaflex (a Tibetan form of reflexogy) to the spinal reflexes of the feet, and the second part involves dropping neat essential oils long the spine, following the French method of application. Feathering movements with the tips of the fingers are used to spread the oil along the spine and to stimulate the nervous system. There follow some simple traditional massage movements, before a warm damp towel is placed over the spinal area to assist the essential oils entering the bloodstream. During Raindrop a vegetable oil can be used if excess warmth or tingling is experienced, effectively diluting the neat oils, but in practice this is seldom required and the oils can be applied neat because of their high quality.

By dropping the essential oils onto the skin from a height of around 5 inches, their healing energies and properties are dropped through the aura of the recipient. This brings about a balance within the spiritual body, the emotional body and finally the physical body; in other words connecting the aura with the physical body to assist the recipient to feel at peace and to release feelings that are no longer wanted or helpful, to allow personal growth and harmony.

The combination of the powerful Tibetan reflexology of Vitaflex, with the unique Raindrop technique and the pure essential oils of Young Living, has become a valuable tool for all manner of ailments. Over the years there has been great success with conditions such as Scoliosis, IBS, ME/Fibromyalgia, and all kinds of body pain in particular back pain and sciatica. There has also been great success in alleviating depression. The Emotional Raindrop technique is a powerful treatment that helps remove negative feelings that allow one to move forward.
