Raindrop Therapy (RT)

by Kimberly Rogers, CR, WCMT and NCMTB 

Raindrop Therapy (or RT) uses high-quality essential oils applied along the spine and other parts of the body to bring about healing and balance affecting body, mind and spirit. Essential oils are anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory. Its roots in Native American medicine, RT combines aromatherapy with massage and acupressure. It is a powerful, non-invasive tool for aiding the body to come into structural and electrical alignment. The essential oils are dispersed like drops of rain and lightly massaged into the skin. The essential oils penetrate quickly and after the session, will continue their healing work for up to one week. RT can be helpful for a number of health issues such as:

  • Back pain
  • Respiratory ailments
  • Digestive complaints
  • Hormonal problems
  • Liver insufficiencies
  • Etc.

Essential oils are applied along the spine reflexes of both feet and along the spine of the back. RT theory states that pathogens (fungus, bacteria, viruses, etc.) the immune system overcomes but can't kick completely out of the body travel to lay dormant along the spinal cord. There they remain; receiving nutrients until they are strong enough to either overwhelm the immune system or the immune system itself becomes compromised (usually by too much stress).

After the RT session, clients may wish to rest or sleep. This is a normal relaxation response in which the parasympathetic system is activated to begin the healing process. The client also may take a hot shower or bath—this will aid in driving the oils deeper into the tissues of the body. Depending upon the health of the client, the aromatics may kick-start a healing crisis within the body; the client may experience flu-like symptoms for a few days as the essential oils and the immune system work to remove any pathogens lingering within the body. It is encouraged that clients receiving RT drink plenty of pure water and other fluids for the next several days following the session.

The essential oils used are a pure, therapeutic grade and many can be taken internally. Health Concepts, LLC, purchases their RT oils from Young Living. Essential oils are derived from plants and are easily broken down, used and disposed of by the body. They do not remain in the body. Raindrop Therapy is gentle and relaxing for everyone.
