Raindrop Technique and VitaFlex

Raindrop Technique® & Vita Flex Technique

The Raindrop Technique®, developed in the 1980s by naturopath D. Gary Young and a Lakota medicine man named Wallace Black Elk, combines aromatherapy, moist heat and Vita Flex-like massage to combat pain and stress. Fibromyalgia, sciatica and scoliosis are just a few of the ailments that studies have shown to improve with this technique, which works on the basis that bacteria and viruses can build up along the spine.

Young Living essential oils such as marjoram, wintergreen and cypress are applied to the skin using a relaxing effleurage, or finger-stroking massage. Seven oils and two blends are used for their anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties to promote the following:
  • Reduction of pain and inflammation
  • Improvement of circulation and immune function
  • Prevention of bacterial and viral causes of spinal misalignment
  • Relief of stress
  • Release of internalized negative emotions
Vita Flex is a type of reflexology that developed from the study of Tibetan culture by Stanley Burroughs in the mid-20th century. The term stands for “vitality through the reflexes” and involves a specialized, gentle massage that stimulates the nervous system to deliver the benefits of essential oils throughout the body.
Essential oils are applied to the complex network of reflex points that stimulate a person’s internal systems. During the Vita Flex Reflexology application, energy is released via electrical impulses, which follow the nerve pathways to breaks or clogs in an electrical circuit (usually caused by toxins, damaged tissue or insufficient oxygen). Restoring these pathways can release tension, congestion and imbalances within the body. The interaction between the essential oils and the Vita Flex Reflexology application often creates immediate benefit, as each element enhances the effectiveness of the other.
