Raindrop Technique and Tibetan Reflexology Training

Raindrop Technique and Tibetan (Vitaflex) Reflexology workshops with Yvonne Jevons CThA:-

Do you have clients, family members or friends with ME, Fybromyalgia, depression, IBS, back pain/sciatica, nervous system problems etc? Then these workshops are for you!

Raindrop Technique is truly incredible and has been developed by Gary Young as a result of inspiration from the traditions of the Lakota Indians. The technique was first brought over to the UK in 2000. It involves dropping neat essential oils directly onto the spinal area, following the French method of application. Feathering movements with the tips of the fingers are used to spread the oil all along the spine and to stimulate nervous system activity. The Vitaflex technique is used to enhance the electrical flow along the nerves of the spinal column and so to all parts of the body. The effects of this treatment can last for up to seven weeks. The key to its success is the use of exceptionally high quality, therapeutic grade essential oils.

Raindrop Technique brings about a balance within physical body, emotional body and spiritual body – in other words, connecting your aura with your physical body to assist you to feel at peace within and release all that is no longer needed to allow personal growth and harmony.
We will cover the properties and cautions of these nine oils; how and why they are applied. It is a hands-on workshop and each person will have the opportunity to give and receive treatment and you can then discover for yourself from the feedback of each person, just how incredible the healing can be with Raindrop Technique!

Tibetan Reflexology is an ancient Tibetan system of healing, applied to the feet and lower leg to aid rapid healing. This technique was brought to the fore by Stanley Burroughs in the 1930’s and is used throughout the world. It works in conjunction with the nervous system using the ‘Vitaflex’ (vitality through the reflexes) technique which stimulates and heals the body, mind and spirit at a very deep level. This a great addition to any Reflexologists repertoire. All of the technique or parts of it can be used, at the discretion of the practitioner, depending on what is required for a specific client. A complete Tibetan Reflexology treatment lasts approximately 1 hour, but it can be shortened very easily and so is ideal for use during taster sessions at health fairs etc.

Hi Angela,
Pity you are so far away - however, we do travel to teach people, so if you are particularly interested and can get a few of you together, let me know and we'll see what we can arrange.
I can be contacted at

Thanks for your interest!
