Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions.

My husband insisted that I go for a Raindrop Technique massage because I have been in considerable pain for some weeks now. I have several health issues, any of which might cause the pain at any time.

Yesterday he took me for the treatment, which was amazing. Gemma asked about my pain, made sure she understood the issues, and measured me on a piece of paper taped to the wall before she started.

She worked on my feet for a long time, using all of the usual essential oils for the technique. She was particularly careful on my very painful big toe joint.

When she moved over to my back, she said that she added Sacred Frankincense essential oil. After the process, she asked if she could adjust or align my tailbone, which was a first for me. It was not painful at all, since everything was soft after the massage.

Directly after receiving the Raindrop Technique and measuring against the same piece of paper, I stood at least 5 to 6 mm taller!

Pain was under better control, although I was still careful about going down stairs and careful about not twisting my back. My hips were not at all painful during the night, and my back seems to have settled into twinges of pain only when I move in a certain way.

I know the Raindrop Technique is not a magic wand, but the relief afterwards was clear. We might take the course ourselves in order to do the treatment at home. Already, my husband has tried out Copaiba, Frankincense and Lavender essential oils to give me some relief.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
2."Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
