Raindrop Aromatherapy Treatment
The Raindrop Technique was created by D. Gary Young, the founder of Young Living Oils. It is an application of 9 Young Living Essential Oils along the feet and spine with the purpose of bringing physical, emotional and mental balance to the mind and body.
The oils are worked into the spinal reflexes on the feet using a technique Young calls “Vita-flex”. The client then flips over, exposing the back so that the oils can be dropped onto, and massaged into, the spine and surrounding muscles. A hot towel is then applied to the back and the client rests for 10 minutes, soaking in the heat. Following is a list of the oils and the healing properties associated with them.
