Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Raindrop Technique


How long does the session go for?
Depending on your individual needs, the session is likely to take between 1 and 2 hours. Ask the person giving you Raindrop Technique how long you should set aside for the session.



Can you explain to me what I will feel?
Raindrop Technique is a gentle yet powerful technique developed from ancient Egyptian and Native American energy principles. These are combined with Ancient Tibetan reflexology, various massage techniques and the power of therapeutic-grade essential oils, to create a truly unique and wonderful experience. It is a treat to all of the senses, and to body, mind and spirit. The technique is usually performed in silence, giving you the opportunity to sink into a deep state of relaxation and inner connection. Many people drift off to sleep when they receive Raindrop Technique, aided by the relaxing effects of the essential oils. Raindrop Technique usually focuses on the back and neck, and also the reflex points of the feet (especially the “spinal” reflex). Yet the penetrating effects of the essential oils allow it to be felt through the entire body.



How often can I receive Raindrop Technique®?
Most people like to receive Raindrop Technique weekly, fortnightly or monthly, however there may be times you feel you need it more regularly, especially if you are going through a challenging time. Listen to your body.

How does it differ from Egyptian Emotional Clearing Technique?
Raindrop Technique is an exceptional modality for optimising physical health, vitality and flexibility, whereas the Egyptian Emotional Clearing Technique and AromaBliss Techniques are much more specific to the emotional journey. However - remember we are working with Nature's Intelligence. Essential oils have a unique ability to go where they are most needed, so there are times that recipients notice an enhanced state of emotional balance after receiving Raindrop Technique (just as they may notice greater vitality and physical balance after receiving Egyptian Emotional Clearing Technique or AromaBliss Technique).

Should I take off my jewelry?
Many people report sensations of “energy” running through their body during Raindrop Technique. This is because Raindrop Technique re-establishes the body’s natural flow of inner energy, often called “Chi”. Metal can affect the flow of this current, so please remove all jewelry before the session (if it is easily removable).

What clothes should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothing (preferably clothing that is not restrictive). You will have towels draped over you for your session, and will be invited to remove your outer clothing down to underwear.

Should I shower after Raindrop Technique®?
Many people love to leave the Raindrop Technique oils on their skin for as long as possible before showering. If you think this might be you, you may prefer to shower before you come for your session.

Is it OK to communicate my experiences?
Everyone responds differently to Raindrop Technique, and whilst most people float out the door afterwards feeling balanced and deeply relaxed, some people may experience discomfort during or after a session. This is the case with any form of body work.

It’s important that you communicate your experiences to the person giving you Raindrop Technique, as they may be able to assist, or offer helpful suggestions.

For example, some of the essential oils used in Raindrop Technique may be warming to the skin. These are skin tested for possible sensitivity first, to minimise any likelihood of discomfort. However, if you do experience any prickling or heat on your skin from the oils, the person giving you Raindrop Technique will be able to easily cool the area down using a vegetable (carrier) oil......but only if you tell them!

How can I be sure that Top Quality Essential Oils are used?

Raindrop Technique can only be called Raindrop Technique when it is performed using pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils from Young Living Essential Oils. These oils are guaranteed to be free of chemical adulteration. You deserve the best!

What is Detoxification?

In our modern world, it’s impossible to avoid chemical exposure. Artificial chemicals are in our food, in the animals we eat, in our water, and in our cosmetics and personal care products. Many of these chemicals are absorbed straight through the skin and some may build up in the body, paving the way for dis-ease.

Because of the deep relaxation that the body enters into during the massage steps of Raindrop Technique (just as with other types of physical bodywork), it's possible for you to experience a natural release process, as the body does its own spring clean and releases things it no longer needs. This may be more noticeable after your first few Raindrop Techniques. Click here to discover important information to help you minimise any discomfort caused by this natural release.

What is this Release a sign of?

Remember - this type of release can happen after any type of massage, and is not specific to Raindrop Technique. It's a natural cleansing process the body goes through, in response to either relaxation or massage. Indicators that your body is experiencing a Release include: tiredness, headaches, thirst, strong smelling stools/urine, mood swings, and skin rashes.

The rebalancing effects of Raindrop Technique work on the body for up to 10 days*, although symptoms of release will usually pass within a day or two. If symptoms persist or you’re concerned about your response, consult your doctor or natural therapist.

How can I Reduce Detox Symptoms?

To get the greatest benefit from Raindrop Technique, it's a good idea to implement some healthy habits for a week or two before your session. It is recommended that you:

Drink plenty of filtered water before and after your Raindrop Technique session. Tea, coffee, softdrinks and milk don’t count.
Ensure you’re having regular (daily) bowel motions



Why is it important to balance my pH?

Our western diet and stress levels leave many people with an acidic pH. You will have the best effects from Raindrop Technique if your pH is balanced*. For good health, minimise acid-forming foods in your diet (red meat, dairy, sugar, coffee, alcohol), and increase alkaline-forming and acid-binding foods*.
