Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I connected with Meredith, a Massage Therapist, so I could introduce her to Raindrop Technique & do an exchange for a massage. By introducing her to Raindrop Technique, I thought she might want to incorporate this into her practice. Meredith also was experiencing considerable curvature in her lumbar (lower) vertebrae as well as a slighter imbalance in her thoracic (upper back) vertebrae as well.

After her first session, she definitely felt much more relaxed & stress free. I shared with her on how Raindrops had supported people in rebalancing their spines so we decided to continue doing exchanges.

Our next session occurred two weeks later. I finished dropping the Oregano & Thyme on her back & as I reached for the Basil, this mild mannered lady began screaming, 'My back! My back!!' A plethora of questions & statements ran through my mind, so much so that I couldn't even verbalize them.

'Do I add carrier oil?'
'Does it burn?'
'Do I wipe off the oils?'
'This didn't happen last time...'
'Her back's not even pink...'
'Do you want me to stop?'

The last statement was the only one I could stammer out. Meredith gave me an emphatic 'No! Keep going.' & not to add carrier oil since it wasn't burning.
After the session, Meredith stood up. To her shock, she discovered that her spine had straightened. She told me later that she had been having a difficult time staying upright due to the shift. Her body kept falling backwards.

As she began working on me, Meredith went on & on about how she, for the first time, was able to correctly execute proper body mechanics taught in her massage classes. Throughout her course work, she'd been continually berated for not utilizing the appropriate mechanics despite her physical inability to perform what was being taught. We continued our barters either every other week or sometimes, due to our schedules, several weeks in between sessions.

At this time, there is no visible curvature in her lumbar however, there still is an ever so slight imbalance in her 1st & 2nd thoracic vertebrae. Meredith found that the condition of her thoracic area would take '2 steps forward, 1 step back' so, for now, we're continuing our sessions on a weekly basis to ascertain if her back can indeed retain a balanced state.

As an aside, Meredith has incorporated Raindrops into her practice. In fact, she works with ladies unable to conceive so she's using specific oils to support them in hopes that they can one day, bring in a healthy & much loved baby into our world.
