Gary Young based the Raindrop Technique on research of essential oils as antimicrobial agents and the understanding of Vita Flex technique with reflex points in the feet, along with the fascinating information gained from the Lakota Indians in South Dakota.
While visiting the Lakota people, Young learned of a unique ritual. The Lakota Indians would migrate over into the northern regions of Saskatchewan and Manitoba to witness the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. They believed that while the Aurora Borealis was visible, the air was charged with a healing energy and by breathing deeply, they could bring that healing energy into their bodies, through the spine, and back out through their torso. Those people who were suffering from an illness or complicated health issues, would stand out to the lights and inhale deeply, followed by a deep exhale. The healing energy would pass through the spine and travel along their neurological pathways and many experienced dramatic healing effects from this.
When the border arose between Canada and the United States, the Lakota substituted actual exposure to the northern lights to the use of 'effleurage.' Effleurage is a French word meaning 'to skim' or 'to lightly touch.' This is a rhythmic form of massage involving soft, feathered-finger strokes along the skin.
Young found that when certain essential oils and Vita Flex were used in combination with effleurage, the effects were greatly heightened. Raindrop Technique was formally adopted in 1989 as a notable healing technique and has since received enormous praise from users all over the world for help with relaxation, emotional release, tissue cleansing and spinal misalignments.
