The Raindrop Technique uses Reflexology, Massage and Essential Oils to bring the body into structural and electrical alignment. It is designed to bring balance to the body with its relaxing and mild application. It will help to align the energy centers of the body and release them if blocked, without the use of hard pressure. The term “Raindrop” refers to the process by which the oils are applied; dropped from approximately 6 inches above the body to facilitate the stimulation from outside the body’s electric field, like the gentle stimulation of a raindrop as it makes contact with human skin.
The Raindrop Technique was initially used to assist clients whose muscles were pulling their vertebrae out of alignment, or who had scoliosis. But today, Raindrop Technique is used for many issues where a whole body application feels appropriate.
What to Expect
The overall session is much like other massage services requiring the client to disrobe and lay draped in a face down position on the massage table. The major variable is the generous application of therapeutic grade essential oils that are specifically prescribed for this process and their precise application to various parts of the body. The essential oils used will generally include Valor, Thyme, Oregano, Cypress, Wintergreen, Basil, Peppermint, Marjoram, Aroma Siez, and Ortho Ease; although there is a small degree of flexibility available for therapeutic discretion. Hot towel compresses are also employed, and the body will frequently be repositioned and manipulated to insure maximum benefit from the treatment.
It is not uncommon to witness spontaneous spinal corrections throughout the process, although at times the desired results do not come immediately. After completion, the body will continue to respond for days, at which time you may begin to see gradual changes. Everybody is different, and what works for one may not work for another. Different body types respond to the applications in different ways and a well-trained massage therapist should be adept at recognizing and correcting for these variables as they occur. One application may last for months for one person, but 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, new tissue memory will need to be established for the body to remain aligned where it should be. These are the basics of the Raindrop Technique.
It is often said that ones body retains the aroma of pepperoni pizza upon completion of a Raindrop session. This wonderful aroma is the hallmark of the Raindrop Technique and it is neither offensive nor harmful. In fact, the therapeutic benefits of these oils is well-documented for centuries!. Clients are well-advised to schedule this appointment when they’ll be returning home following the treatment if the aroma is to be a personal consideration.
