Raindrop Technique

“You can’t get more pampered than this!”

Imagine the sensation of sinking into a deep and blissful state of rest, as someone does the ancient Tibetan version of reflexology on your feet.

As you slowly (even reluctantly) come back to your body and roll over, you experience the gentle splashes as Young Living’s therapeutic-grade essential oils are applied up your spine and to your tired muscles.

These oils are then “feathered in” using a spine-tingling technique inspired by the Native Americans, combined with an array of massage steps to melt every last bit of tension away.

Who is it for?

Raindrop Technique is one of the most extraordinary modalities on our planet, and we know you will love both giving and receiving it.

Because of the powerful combination of ancient and modern bodywork and massage techniques, it’s perfectly suited to anyone who is:

  • Needing to unwind deep-seated physical or emotional tension
  • Dealing with any type of muscular tension in their neck/back
  • Spending long hours at a desk or on digital devices
  • Wanting to cleanse and revitalise their body, and improve their health
  • Looking to maintain their body in peak physical condition
  • Seeking a unique technique that intelligently targets the body’s needs

Raindrop Technique is so much more than a massage. It targets your feet, back and spine with a unique combination of ancient and modern techniques combined with the pure life-force of therapeutic-grade essential oils.

Its effects can be felt through every system of the body, as it works its magic physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. It truly is a Master Technique.

What is Raindrop Technique?

Raindrop Technique is a unique modality that comprises 4 steps, each unlocking a new, amazing experience for your body and Spirit.

Step 1 – The Valor Balance:

This step balances the body’s electrical energy using the oil blend “Valor”. Valor is a blend of oils that the Roman soldiers wore into battle. It gave them strength, courage and confidence, so they felt unbeatable. Valor has the same frequency as our skeleton, so it targets our physical, emotional and energetic alignment. It instructs the body to relax, allowing our muscles to let go and our spine to sit in its perfectly balanced position.

Step 2 – VitaFlex Technique:

You’re in a deep state of relaxation from the Valor Balance. Then this beautiful, rhythmic, VitaFlex Technique (ancient Tibetan reflexology) is performed along the inner edge of your feet, from heel to toe. VitaFlex Technique employs a rolling movement, very different to Western Reflexology. It’s not too heavy, not too light… but just right. 7 essential oils are applied to your feet during this process.

Designed to balance and energise the physical spine via its reflex points in the feet, VitaFlex Technique sends you into a luscious state of relaxation. Most people are sound asleep by the end of this step.

Step 3 – Oils “Raindropped” on the Spine, Feathered in & Massaged:

This step of Raindrop Technique is performed with the recipient lying face-down. 9 essential oils and blends are dripped along the spine and “feathered in” using a unique movement reminiscent of the hands of a Hawaiian dancer. This movement is incredible!!!! Each feathering stroke draws the oil up the spine to the organs of the body, invigorating the whole body.

The oils and feathering are insterspersed with a variety of massage steps, which loosen the muscles along the back, release tension, promote relaxation and encourage healthy detox, thus bringing all the benefits of a great massage to the physical body.

Step 3 is completed with an optional Warm Compress on the back, designed to send you into the deepest possible state of relaxation and release, where you can let go of any tension or strain.

Step 4 – The Finger Pull:

The Finger Pull is a Lymphatic Pump technique, performed at the occiput (where the neck joins the skull). With the recipient face-up, the practitioner’s hands are cupped on either side of the head, and the fingers are bent then relaxed then bent again (like pulling a trigger with all 4 fingers). This creates a rhythmic and extremely relaxing rocking of the entire body, including the toes!

Being a lymphatic pump, it’s one of the best ways for moving stagnant lymph fluid around the body, giving the body a complete “wake up”, leaving it tingling and revitalised and cleansed – the perfect way to end this amazing technique.

What our students say…

“This modality is utterly profound!”
