Raindrop Instructor Certificate from Dr. Gary Young - 1 of only 9 in the World
Raindrop Technique (RT) originated in the 1980s based on Dr. Gary Young's research work with essential oils and the fascinating information he learned from a Lakota medicine man named Wallace Black Elk.
"Raindrop Technique™ is a powerful, non-invasive tool for assisting the body in correcting defects in the curvature of the spine. It integrates Vitaflex and massage, utilizing the power of essential oils in bringing the body into structural and electrical alignment."

During the years that it has been practiced, RT has resolved numerous cases of scoliosis and kyphosis and eliminated the need for back surgery for thousands of people. RT is being explored in a number of scientific studies to show that many types of scoliosis and spinal misalignments are indeed caused by viruses or bacteria that lie dormant along the spine.
In 1982, a research study by Pincott and Taff showed that vaccines, such as the oral poliomyelitis, made from live viruses have been linked to spinal problems and scoliosis. Research in 2001, at the Royal Orthopedic Hospital in Birmingham, England, found that 53% of patients with severe sciatica tested positive to chronic low-grade bacterial infection, corroborating the existence that infectious microorganisms are a cause for spinal pain and inflammation.
Raindrop Technique uses a sequence of essential oils that are immune enhancing and 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 people relax and manage stress, decrease frustration, and promote overall health, vitality, and longevity.
There's an oil combination used for this practice that includes special blends and single oils from Young Living Essential Oils. 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 oils are dispensed in little drops from about six inches above your back, hence the name Raindrop. Undiluted essential oils are what make this technique unique. It's based on the French model for applying oils – the most extensively practiced and studied model in the world.
Then, the oils are gently rubbed and feathered along your spine and back muscles. They're also applied on your feet. The process takes about an hour and continues to work in your body for up to a week, with possible realignment and body adjustment taking place during this time.
"Raindrop Technique is not a cure-all or 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 a tool to help restore your body's balance and good health." (from the "Essential Oils Desk Reference")

Dr. Ken Kreiger, D.C. a chiropractor in Scottsdale, Arizona had this to say:
"As a chiropractor, I believe that the dramatic results of RT are enough for me to rewrite the books on scoliosis."
