Raindrop Technique® combines the artistry of aromatherapy with the massage.
The Raindrop Technique is a method of using a combination of reflexology, aromatherapy, massage techniques, and essential oils applied on your spine and on the feet. High quality essential oils are placed on the reflex points on the feet where the spine is represented. The Raindrop Technique is designed to bring balance to the body with its relaxing and mild application. The Raindrop Technique is a gentle application of essential oils and massage without using hard pressure or trying to force the body to change, which should never be done.
Everybody responds to the Raindrop technique differently, and what works for one may not work for another. We try to be sensitive to the person we are working on so that you can get the most out of the Raindrop Technique as you can. Most people feel relaxed during the process. After the Raindrop Massage Technique you may feel more energetic or relaxed. It depends on you and what your body needs at that time. The Raindrop Technique also helps align the energy centers of the body and helps release them if blocked. You will receive the benefits of healing hands and oils as the the Raindrop Technique is applied.
During the Raindrop Technique you will start by lying face-up on the massage table. The body should be as straight as possible with the hips flat on the table. The arms can be resting along the side of the body or over the edge of the table. The Raindrop Technique uses a layering process of 9 different Young Living therapeutic/medicinal grade essential oils applied to the feet and spine. The combination of these oils, and the application of moist warm towels to the spine and back, allows the oils to penetrate your body quickly and start their therapeutic process on a cellular level.
Essential oils used during the Raindrop Technique:
- Valor (blend): cleanses the energy field, aligns and balances
- Oregano: attacks viruses and bacteria
- Thyme: attacks viruses and bacteria
- Basil: anti-spasmodic, headache relief
- Cypress: increases circulation
- Wintergreen: anti-inflammatory/anti-spasmodic, analgesic (pain reliever)
- Marjoram: relaxes musculature, lowers blood pressure
- Peppermint: anti-spasmodic, assists in "pushing" in all other oils
- Aroma Siez (blend): relaxing & soothing
Raindrop Technique has been known to increase the immune system, relieve back issues, and to create balance and harmony in the body - physically, mentally, and emotionally. Raindrop Technique focuses the healing essence of the essential oils directly to the spinal column where it is believed that viruses and bacteria lie dormant until the immune system weakens. The oils create an environment that is not hospitable to these “foreign” agents in our bodies and causes them to be eliminated naturally.
Raindrop Technique is also an effective detoxification and can assist you in eliminating symptoms associated with cold and flu and other common conditions.
Raindrop Technique is a very gentle therapy and offers you the opportunity to completely relax while improving your overall well being on all levels.
Some people ask, "How long does the Raindrop Technique application last?". This depends as everybody responds differently. In general, the healthier you are along with the proper diet, exercise and a good mental attitude will help. One Raindrop Technique may last months for one person, but then for another it may be necessary to have the application done every week until the body begins to respond. The key is to retrain the body. In some cases, you will have to develop a new retention in the tissue in order for the body to stay where it should be. This may take a few weeks or even a year or longer.
