I have been studying, doing a technique that helps Fibromyalgia, Back and Neck Pain, Scoliosis, Arthritis, Pain Syndromes, Injured Discs, Sciatica, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's and Pain from Osteoporosis for over 13 years. This Technique is called Raindrop Technique. It uses 9 different therapeutic essential oils along the back, neck, and feet along with a variety of different pressure releases and moist heat.
Dr. Starr's 100 person Study of Raindrop Technique
Pain was measured on a Scale from 0 – 10 0 being no pain and 10 being unbearable pain.
With clients who marked their chart anywhere from a 3-8 90% experienced a 30-80% reduction in pain on average, and about 5% were completely out of pain, 5% were the same of worse.
pH Measurement (or the amount of Acid of Inflammation in the body)
85% of clients reduced the acid and inflammation in their body (became more Alkaline)
10% remained the same
5% became more acidic
Clients on average grew millimeters or centimeters from the muscle relaxation and spinal stretching.
60% of clients notice improvement in sleep after a Raindrop Session
40% did not notice a change
100% Noted feelings of being more relaxed and less stressed
60% note an improved mood that lasts for days
20% notice improved breathing (especially in asthma and allergy cases)
Fibromyalgia clients notice much improvement in pain, stiffness, sleep and joint mobility especially the next day. Most improvement for Fibromyalgia clients is seen after 5 sessions within 6-8 weeks.
Both functional (muscle and joint related) scoliosis and anatomical scoliosis (where the spinal bones are deformed) noted improvement in back pain. Functional scoliosis can see improvement in curve 10-30% with one treatment. Best results seen with consistent treatments monthly or every 6 weeks.
Every MS client I have worked on has seen improvement in symptoms and reduction in symptoms if they are not on heavy medications.
With regular weekly or daily Raindrops clients and Caretakers note improvement in moods, dementia symptoms, gait, and other related pain symptoms.
Cleansing and Detoxification
Detoxification may occur in some people during and/or following the Raindrop Technique. Symptoms can include a rash, headache, or flu-like symptoms. People with some conditions or those in certain professions may be more likely to experience detoxification including:
Hair Dressers Past Chemotherapy Smokers, Drug users or those taking many prescription medications, Obese clients and those on Anti-depressants.
Ironically these clients if do Raindrop Technique in series also experience the most improvement in symptoms.
Interestingly Dr. David Stewart the Director of the CARE Seminars and author of Statistical Validation of Raindrop Technique studied 10,000 different Raindrop Sessions from Vacationers all over the United States, Canada and abroad. Here are his results.
Taken from Dr. David Stewart's Statistical Validation of Raindrop Technique
97% of clients reported a positive experience
Only 0.5% were unhappy with the treatment
86% saw emotional improvement
98% saw physical improvement
99.9% of clients would have another treatment
The most commonly reported unpleasant
were burning sensation on the skin, rash, nausea,
headache, and tiredness (typical detoxification symptoms)
The most commonly reported improvements were less
back pain, reduced cold/flu, euphoria, feeling more
energized, and relieved stress/anxiety
Raindrop Technique is not a cure and if not performed correctly by a qualified Raindrop Technician could be less than optimal. If you struggle with pain, Fibromyalgia, MS, Parkinson's, Scoliosis, Back or Neck Pain, Disc Injury or just a whole lot of stress than give Raindrop technique a try. If you have a chronic condition I recommend you commit to at least 5 sessions done within 8 weeks. If you have just general aches and pains than why not try a Raindrop once a month or every 6 weeks for maintenance care.
Those clients including myself who get Raindrop regularly are Happier and Healthier.
