Young Living Essential Oils used in the standard Raindrop Therapy:
VALOR (blend) is the first and most important oil used in this technique because it helps balance the electrical energies within the body. It also helps create an environment where structural alignment can occur. (Emotional: helps one to overcome fear and opposition, possibly helping one to find within the qualities of courage, confidence and increased self esteem.)
THYME (Thymus vulgaris) it is used for its ability to support the immune system by attacking any bacteria, fungus, infection, or virus that may be present. It may also help one overcome fatigue and physical weakness after an illness. There is some indication that scoliosis may be the result of viral &/or bacterial activity in the body. (Emotional: Supplies energy during times of stress and physical weakness.)
OREGANO (Origanum Campactum) works in conjunction with thyme to strengthen the immune system and to attack bacteria and viruses. It may also act as an antiseptic for the respiratory system, help balance ametabolism, and help strengthen the vital centers of the body. (Emotional: Grounding – may strengthen one’s feeling of security.)
CYPRESS (Cupressus sempervirens)is used for its antibacterial, anti-infectious, antimicrobial, and diuretic properties. In addition, it may function as a decongestant for the circulatory and lymphatic systems - may help relieve spasms, cramps, edema, cellulite, varicose veins, and water retention. (Emotional: May strengthen and help ease the feeling of loss, creating a feeling of security, grounding, and support for the emotional body.)
WINTERGREEN (Gaultheria Procumbens)/ BIRCH (Betula alleghaniensis) is great for removing discomfort associated with the inflammation of bones, muscles, and joints. It is an anti-inflammatory and may assist in relieving arthritis/rheumatism, muscle/nerve pain. Birch is very similar in chemistry to wintergreen.(Emotional: May elevate, open and increase awareness in nervous system.)
PEPPERMINT (Mentha piperita) is used to calm and strengthen the nerves, reduce inflammation, and is highly effective when dealing with conditions related to the respiratory system. Also helps bring harmony between the other oils in order to enhance their individual activity. (Emotional: May be stimulating to the conscious mind, enhances mental retention.)
MARJORAM (Origanum majorana) is used to relax spastic muscles, soothe the nerves, relieve cramps, aches, and pains and to help calm the respiratory system. (Emotional: Peace, celibacy, sleep AROMA SIEZ (blend) works similar to Marjoram, but because it is a blend of oils that have many similar properties, it will enhance the results.)
AROMA SIEZ (massage oil blend) may help to relax, calm, and relieve the tension of spastic muscles resulting from sports injury, fatigue, or stress.
ORTHO EASE (massage oil blend) is the crowning oil to this application. It is used to help relax all the muscles of the back and legs and to help reduce any stress, arthritic pain, or tension that may exist.
V-6 - ADVANCED VEGETABLE OIL COMPLEX can be used to mix with essential oils to create blends, formulas and massage oils. This oil complex nourishes the skin, has a longer shelf life, doesn’t clog pores and will not stain clothes.
The oils are dispensed like little drops of rain above the back and massaged along the vertebrae and back muscles.
Some of my clients call it their all-natural flu shot, because of the anti-viral, anti-microbial properties. Raindrop Technique is a relaxing/blissful experience of receiving the essential oils dropped onto the spine, then feathered and massaged in, with moist heat applied afterward.

RAINDROP THERAPY WORKSHOP
Raindrop Therapy is a sequence of anointing with oils and laying on of hands that brings structural and electrical alignment to the body in a relaxing and invigorating manner through the power of essential oils. There are many versions of raindrop technique, but the same oils used are high in Phenolic content to ward off potentially damaging viruses and bacteria while cleansing cellular receptor sites to enhance intercellular and intracellular communication and improve overall bodily function. The oils used in raindrop technique must be of high quality therapeutic grade which is why I only use and recommend Young Living Essential Oils.
Description: This is a non-certificate workshop which will entail the learning of the oils used as well as the safety in using the oils. It will be approximately a 12-hour class, 4 hours of theory and 8 hours of hands on practical work. The intention of this workshop is for you as a distributor of essential oils to be able to perform this amazing technique on your friends and family.
If you are not already a Young Living Essential Oil member and wish to attend this workshop, please contact me.

Vita Flex THERAPY
What is Vita Flex?
Vita Flex technique was developed by the Tibetans thousands of years before acupuncture. Its literally meaning is “vitality through the reflexes”. It is a complete, scientific, workable system of controls which releases the energy of the unlimited healing powers within us.
Its theory is fascinating, and the premise is that slight pressure applied to the body creates an electric charge that is therapeutic to the body. This is known as piezoelectric.
The pressure comes from the fingers. A rolling motion of the finger pads, tips and nails, creates the stimulation similar to how an electric switch or circuit works. The technique is applied to the various reflex points of the body.
Combine this technique with 1-2 drops of essential oil applied to those areas of the feet that correspond to the system of the body you wish to support. (Vita Flex charts are available showing the nervous system connection for the electrical points throughout the body) The Vita Flex (VF) numbers correspond to locations on the feet and are noted on the foot chart.
It has a synergistic effect when combined with essential oils and it can be used to stimulate all the body systems on a physical and emotional level.
To see the various points on the feet, please see Vita Flex Chart below:
What are the Benefits of Vita Flex Technique?
There are numerous benefits of the Vita Flex Technique. Here are just a few:
• Helps to brings back balance to the nerve pathways in a non-invasive manner.
• Helps to re-align the spine in a non-manipulative manner (see hip/atlas vitaflex)
• Helps to reduce stress and tension in the body. Including tension headaches.
•Helps to improve hearing in a natural way. Use as a natural ear ache remedy.

• And many more!
How is Vita Flex Technique applied to Different Body Systems?
These are several different ways to apply vitaflex technique:
• Clearing the Colon
Vita flex is applied along the shins and the spinal points of the feet first. Then we apply vitaflex to the soles of the feet.
Oils that may be used to assist with clearing the colon are: Cypress, Marjoram, Peppermint, Wintergreen, Patchouli, DiGize
• Respiratory System (lungs and bronchial tubes)
Vita flex is applied along the lung reflex area on the feet. Then we use vita flex between the bones and ligaments of the feet.
Oils that may be used to assist us with the lungs and the bronchial tubes are: Thyme, Oregano, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, Thieves, Ravensara, RC, ImmuPower (Oregano, Thyme and Cinnamon will work best if there is a viral infection. For congestion I would use RC, Ravensara, eucalyptus or hyssop essential oils. If there is a lung infection, Thieves and ImmuPower will help.)
• Clearing Sinuses
Vita flex is applied on the sinus reflex area on the toes. Also, you may use the sinus points on the face.
Any oils that are for respiratory congestion may be used. Here are a few suggestions: RC, Ravensars, Peppermint
• Head and Brain (releases tension and headaches)
Vita flex is applied on the head and brain reflex area on the toes. Also, there is a procedure that you perform on the head that feels wonderful! Many people have had great success with this for releasing stress and tension headaches!
Any oils the client would like to hold while working on the head is fine. Oils may also be applied to the head. Here are a few suggestions: Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Peace & Calming, Brain Power
• Lower Blood Pressure
Apply vita flex to the heart reflex point below ring toe on the left foot. Aroma Life is the oil of choice here. Any oils the client would like to hold while working on the head is fine. Oils may also be applied to the head.
Here are a few suggestions: Cypress, Aroma Life, Trauma Life
60 to 90 minutes - full Vita Flex
• Ear Technique (inner and auditory nerves)
This is a very lengthy and specific procedure that involves ten steps. People have experienced improved and/or restored hearing with this procedure. Also, this is an effective ear ache remedy especially when combined with helichrysum essential oil.
Here are the oil suggestions: Geranium, Purification, Helichrysum (the oil of choice), Ylang Ylang
• Lymphatic System
There are three different procedures that can be used here.
• Lymphatic Pump – This simulates the action of the foot as if one were walking. Oils are not normally used during this technique, but it is very effective following the colon clearing technique of the shin reflex points.
• Thumb Vita flex – This is also known as thumb rolling where the maneuver is applied to either side of the spine.
• Saw Maneuver or Finger Straddle – saw maneuver where the fingers slide up the spine in a sawing fashion. (The saw and thumb vita flex maneuvers are used during the Raindrop Technique.)
Suggested oils are listed below: Basil, Cypress, Marjoram, Peppermint, Wintergreen
• Hip/Atlas Vita flex
This is an interesting procedure where thumb vita flex is applied to the hip/atlas point at the collar bone. If done correctly, the hips to the atlas can re-align themselves naturally.
I had this done to me at the vita flex class I attended. Because I knew my hips were out of alignment, I volunteered to have this technique done.. My leg length was measured before and after, and sure enough, my legs were even after one thumb vita flex maneuver! Love it!
This can be done with or without the oils. If a client has muscle soreness after the session then here are a few suggestions: Basil, Cypress, Marjoram, Aroma Seiz, *Valor can be used on the reflex points before starting.
Are there any Side Effects?
Because some of the Vita Flex maneuvers can encourage detoxification of the body, someone may experience some mild side effects. These mild symptoms may include headache, sinus drainage, or soreness. The best advice is to drink plenty of water before and after a session.
Thank you,I hope you have enjoyed this section on the Vita Flex Technique, and that you will experience a Vita Flex Technique Session soon.
