Raindrop Therapy Technique
Raindrop Therapy Technique, is an essential oils relaxation (non-invasive, non-deep muscle) back massage. It integrates Vita Flex and several other massage techniques using essential oils and combined with relaxing applications of warm towels. Essential oils have many proven therapeutic qualities and help stimulate the nerves and the re-growth of tissue. The essential oils are dispensed like little drops of rain from a height of about six inches above the back and massaged along the vertebrae. Although the entire process takes about 1 hour to complete, the oils will continue to work in the body for 5 to 7 days bringing balance and harmony to the body physically, mentally and emotionally.
The technique is designed to bring the body back into structural and electrical alignment. Often many types of spinal problems and misalignments are caused by toxins that lie dormant within the spine. In Raindrop, the use of specific essential oils detoxes the body and helps to alleviate the viruses within the spine, hence allowing its structure to return to normal over time. It is also a great technique to fight off viruses and bacteria and give our immune system a boost especially during flu and cold seasons. It is used to help realign the spine, reduce stress and relieve back pain and tension.
Essential oils are created from plants and carry in them the specific vibrational qualities of each plant/flower. When applied to the body, the oils are absorbed through our skin and then our blood system. These therapeutic grade oils are helpful in fighting bacteria and viruses that might be present in our body and help boost our immune system.
For people with sensitive skin the oils may cause some reddening or excessive warming of the skin, but this can be relieved quickly by the application of a carrier oil. If you have any back or neck injuries, please make sure to relay the information to your practitioner as they may need to adjust the session to your benefit.
During a raindrop application, the client changes into their undergarments and lies on a massage table under comfortable warm covers. The practitioner first aligns with the client’s vibrational field, applies the first oil, and holds their feet while allowing the clients energy system to come into balance. The client then lies on their stomach in preparation for the massage application of the remaining oils on and around the spine. The technique uses a total of nine oils, including two blends. The oils used are Oregano (fights viruses), Thyme (anti-viral), Birch (bone repair), Basil (muscle relaxant), Peppermint (topical analgesic), Valor (spinal alignment & muscle rehabilitation), and Marjoram (anti-spasmodic). Each oil application is followed by a light massage to allow the oils to be further absorbed. A warm wet towel application follows, letting the back rest and allowing the therapeutic process to continue for several minutes. Meanwhile, some of the oils are applied on the inside of the legs, from the knees down and on the soles of the feet, using the Vita Flex technique. This technique involves a rolling and releasing motion of the fingertips to gently massage the reflex points on the legs and feet. The reflex points thus release an electrical charge through the body that travels throughout the nerves pathways clearing blockages caused by toxins.
Raindrop Massage Therapy is not a cure-all or a magic bullet. A healthy body is the result of a well-rounded program of exercise and proper diet. Health is everything we do, say, hear, see, and eat.
The Raindrop technique is only one tool to help restore a balance in the body that will result in good health.
