Raindrop and Vita flex are two great healing techniques involving the use of essential oils placed undiluted on the body. These are powerful tools that assist both professionals and lay people to achieve true balance in the body. In the raindrop technique the oils are dropped through the energy field from a distance of about six inches on to the spine then feathered lightly until they are absorbed. A few additional strokes are used to “drive" the oils into the spine and to relax the large back muscles which pull on the vertebrae. This technique is based on the theory that harmful microorganisms are harbored in the spine contributing to deformities like scoliosis. There is a growing body of research now pointing to the existence of infectious microorganisms as a cause of spine pain and inflammation. The Vita Flex technique uses the same oils on the spine reflex points on the soles of the feet.
Essential Oil Benefits
Some essential oils are powerful inhibitors of microbes. For instance, research has shown oregano, thyme, peppermint, and basil have exhibited strong antimicrobial effects against pathogens such as Streptococcus pneumonia. Also noteworthy is the fact that many of the oils used in the Raindrop and Vita Flex techniques are classified as GRAS (Generally Regard As Safe) for internal use by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration. These include basil, marjoram, peppermint, oregano, and thyme. The oils selected for these techniques have all been heavily researched. They were selected to synergistically combine to simultaneously kill viral and bacterial pathogens, reduce inflammation, support the immune system, ease respiratory discomfort, relax stressed muscles, curb digestive upset and relieve body and joint discomfort, as well as balance energy, lift the spirit, restore calm and increase the ability to concentrate.
I have personally performed hundreds of raindrop and vita flex techniques in my healing practice. My clients have been overwhelmingly positive about their results-pain lessened, spines straighter, immune systems boosted, infectious illnesses shortened, and overall sense of well being increased. In short, as a holistic energy therapist and a certified aromatherapist, I have found these healing techniques a wonderful addition to my work.
