The Raindrop Technique Massage

Raindrop Technique is a procedure for applying therapeutic grade essential oils to the feet, back and spine. It is a form of aromatherapy. Raindrop icorporates certain Native American concepts, including a special form of massage called "feather stroking" which is simular to a massage technique called "effeurage".

Another aspect of Raindrop is "Vita Flex," a therapeutic maneuver adapted from Oriental acupuncture, acupressure and reflexology. The term "Vita Flex," meaning "vitality through the reflexes," was coined by Stanley Burroughs, who studied Oriental Medicine and brought the technique to the West.

During portions of the Raindrop procedure, therapeutic grade essential oils are dropped neat (undiluted) on the back along the spine from a height of about six inches. The techniques of Raindrop performed with non-therapeutic grade essential oils is not a true representation of the method.

The theory of dropping the oils in this manner is that the oils, which are said to possess electromagnetic properties, are allowed to fall through the electromagnetic field of the receiver before touching the skin. Thus the oils are thought to interact with the receiver's electric fields in a possibly beneficial way before being absorbed by the body through the skin

This technique is used with various holistc modalities, supporting the immune system, relieving tension, increasing energy, supporting balanced metabolism, and general wellness enhancement.
