"RAINDROP Technique 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 back surgery for thousands of people. Raindrop Technique originated in the 1980s from the research of Dr. Gary Young working with a Lakota medicine man named Wallace Black Elk. It integrates Vitaflex technique with the power of essential oils in bringing the body into structural and electrical alignment." (from the Essential Oils Desk Reference)
Raindrop Technique uses a sequence of essential oils that are immune enhancing, support the body's natural defenses, as well as the circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, digestive, nervous, and other body systems. These oils, which are high in antioxidants, are also mood elevating and antiseptic, creating an unfavorable environment for harmful viruses and bacteria that can hibernate in the body. Essential oils are known to boost stamina and energy, help you relax, help manage stress and frustration and promote overall health, vitality, and longevity. The principal single oils used include:
Thyme (Thymus vulgaris)
Oregano (Origanum compactum)
Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens)
Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens)
Peppermint (Mentha piperita)
Basil (Ocimum basilicum)
Marjoram (Origanum majorana)
The whole process takes about an hour and may continue to work in the body for up to one week following a Raindrop Session, with possible realignment and bodily adjustment taking place during this time.
"Raindrop Technique is not a cure-all or a magic bullet. A healthy balanced body is the result of a well-rounded program of exercise and proper diet. Health is everything we do, say, hear, see, and eat. The Raindrop Technique is only one tool to help restore balance in the body that will result in good health."

Vita Flex Technique
Vita Flex Technique
Vita Flex technique is a powerful ancient Tibetan transformational methodology brought to the US in the 1920s by Stanley Burroughs. It is a very effective method used alone or with other modalities.
It has a synergistic effect when combined with essential oils as in the Raindrop Technique. And it can be used to support all the body systems.
Vita Flex technique was developed by the Tibetans thousands of years before acupuncture. Its literally meaning is "vitality through the reflexes".
Its theory is fascinating. And the premise is that slight pressure applied to the body creates an electric charge that is therapeutic to the body. This is known aspiezoelectric.
How does Vita Flex Work?
When done correctly, the electrical energy that is produced during the technique transfers to the nerve pathways. Once the energy finds a gap in the circuit, itrepairs the break in the pathway that is creating the imbalance in the body.
An analogy is offered here for my readers. If there is a short in the wire along an electrical circuit that is controlling a light, the light would not function. When the short is repaired, the circuit would "reset" and the function would be restored!
What Does this Have to Do with Essential Oils?
We know that essential oils also contain electromagnetic properties. Therefore, using essential oils with vita flex enhances the process that much more and drives the oils into the corresponding reflex points. That is why it is combined with the Raindrop Technique as well.
We can choose oils specifically for the challenge we are experiencing. We will talk about this more in the sections that follow.
What are the Benefits of Vita Flex Technique?
There are numerous benefits of the Vita Flex Technique. Here are just a few:
Bring back balance to the energy pathways in a non-invasive manner.
Work on supporting our healthy body systems
Reduce stress and tension in the body.
And many more!
The pressure comes from the fingers. A rolling motion of the finger pads, tips and nails, creates the stimulation similar to how an electric switch or circuit works. The technique is applied to the various reflex points of the body.
