The Raindrop technique (formally adopted in 1989) is a safe, noninvasive technique used to support spinal health and health within the body at a cellular level. Topically applied 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils from Young Living are used in this service.
Nine of the most heavily researched and most potent therapeutic-grade essential oils/blends are used in the Raindrop technique. These oils synergistically combine to support health of the body from within. Many of the health benefits essential oils can provide have been scientifically documented and experienced by mankind since biblical times.
In addition to the support they can provide to the various systems of the body, the essential oils used in Raindrop can also help to balance energy, lift the spirit, restore calm and increase the ability to concentrate.

An additional oil of your choice is diffused to further enhance the therapeutic benefits of your Raindrop session.
The use of undiluted essential oils in the Raindrop technique is consistent with the French model for aromatherapy ----- which is the most extensively practiced and studied model in the world. Any temporary warmth or reddening experienced in the skin is remedied by the application of a pure vegetable oil to the area.
Raindrop technique combines the therapeutic benefits of essential oils with Vita Flex (an ancient form of Reflexology) and various other massage techniques applied to the spinal reflex points of the feet and the spinal and musculature areas of the back. Application of the oils in these areas help provide benefits throughout the body via the neurological pathways leading from the spine to other vital areas of the body. Although this is not a full body massage, it does provide as a side benefit total body relaxation and a very satisfying massage to the feet and back. But the true therapeutic benefit of the Raindrop Technique is the effect the essential oils have in supporting spinal health and health of the body from within.
