Everybody responds to the technique differently, and what works for one may not work for another. We try to be sensitive to those we are working on so that they can get the most out of a session. Most people feel relaxed during the process. After this Massage Technique, you may feel more energetic or relaxed. It depends on what your body needs at that time. It also helps align the body’s centers and release them if blocked. You will receive the benefits of healing hands and oils during the treatment.
During the session, you start by lying face up on the massage table, as straight as possible with your hips flat on the table. The arms can be resting along the side of the body or over the edge of the table. This Technique uses a layering process of 9 different therapeutic/medicinal grade essential oils applied to the feet and spine. The combination of these oils, and 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.
Some of the essential oils used:
- 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
This Technique can increase the immune system, relieve back issues, and to create balance and harmony in the body, physically, mentally, and emotionally. It focuses the healing essence of the essential oils directly to the spinal column where viruses and bacteria may lie dormant until the immune system weakens. The oils create an inhospitable environment to these foreign agents which causes them to be eliminated naturally from the body.

How long does the application last? Everyone responds differently so it depends. Generally, good health along with a proper diet, exercise and positive mental attitude all help. One Raindrop Technique may last months for one, but then for another it may be necessary to have the application done weekly until the body begins to respond. The key is to retrain the body. In some cases, you must 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.
