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 Vita-flex and massage, utilizing 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 defences, 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 unfavourable 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 oils are dispensed in little drops from a height of about six inches above the back, which is where Raindrop Technique gets its name. They are then massaged along the spine and back muscles. They are also applied to the feet.
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.” (from the “Essential Oils Desk Reference”)
Many professionals, including chiropractors, massage therapists, osteopaths, reflexologists, and certified aromatherapists have found Raindrop and Vitaflex techniques to be an excellent addition to the repertoire of their practices.
The Raindrop Technique Kit combines the history and science of essential oils with the techniques of Vita-Flex and massage in this gentle method of application of essential oils to various areas of the body.

D. Gary Young is the founder and president of Young Living Essential Oils, Inc. He is a pioneer and leading world authority on the cultivation of herbs and the distillation of therapeutic grade essential oils. He is an intuitive healer and scientist. Back in the 1980′s Gary developed a protocol called Raindrop Technique for correcting scoliosis. The technique employs seven different species of single essential oils, two essential blends, and a massage oil which are applied to the feet and/or spine. Most of the oils used in Raindrop Technique are highly antimicrobial. Gary conceived and devised the technique on the idea that scoliosis can be caused by viruses hibernating along the spine and that application of antimicrobial oils would kill the viruses and facilitate a correction in the spinal misalignment.
At the time, there was no scientific research to corroborate his theory. Even though thousands of people received Raindrop Technique over the next decade whose scoliosis was corrected through the procedure, Young was criticized and ridiculed by aromatherapists, scientists, and medical authorities for espousing an “unproven theory.” Despite the professional disapproval and lack of scientific corroboration, Young stuck unwaveringly to his intuitive conviction. Approximately 15 years after he first articulated his theory and protocol to address scoliosis as a viral disease, he was proven right. Scientific research eventually emerged that showed, indeed, that there were viruses residing along the spines of many who suffer from scoliosis and that it was a primary causal agent.
