The Benefits of the Raindrop Massage Technique

Raindrop Massage

If you suffer from aches and pains in your back, poor posture, or curvature of the spine, Raindrop Massage is a terrific healing option. The Raindrop Massage Technique was specifically designed to promote back health and correct curvatures of the spine.

The Raindrop Massage Technique is a gentle, safe healing option that provides many benefits for anyone suffering with back pain or spinal defects. It is also beneficial to those concerned with avoiding injury during sports training and anyone who wants to maintain good back and spine health.

Raindrop Massage combines aromatherapy with Vita Flex massage. Carefully selected essential oils are dropped onto areas of the back as well as the insides of the feet, the areas which correspond with the spine in reflexology. The oils are gently massaged into these areas where they work to align and detoxify the spine and back tissues.

The Benefits of Essential Oils in Raindrop Massage

The essential oils used in the Raindrop Massage have anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. They promote back and spine health by aiding in detoxification. These essential oils help the body rid itself of the viruses, bacteria and toxins that cause inflammation, pain and disfigurement in the spine.

The Vita Flex Massage technique used in Raindrop Massage benefits the back by stimulating circulation and promoting lymphatic drainage, and the essential oils used support this process. These oils also enable the detoxification process to continue for up to seven days following each Raindrop Massage session.

The essential oils used in Raindrop Massage promote alignment. Not only do they aid in the alignment of the spine, they also align and balance the flow of energy throughout the body. Raindrop Massage essential oils increase and align energy flow by opening or releasing blockages that are preventing free circulation. Like detoxification, this alignment process continues for several days following Raindrop Massage treatment.

Nine Essential Oils of Raindrop Massage

Each of the nine essential oils used in Raindrop Massage provide specific benefits. Although other oils may be added to customize treatments, the following are the nine primary oils used in the Raindrop Massage technique, along with some of their beneficial properties:

1. Thyme: strong antiseptic, antimicrobial, revitalizing and energizing

2. Oregano: highly antimicrobial and antiviral

3. Wintergreen: antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antiseptic, eases bone, muscle and joint discomfort

4. Cypress: anti-infectious, antispasmodic, increases circulation

5. Peppermint: soothes digestion, improves concentration, promotes mental clarity

6. Basil: relaxes muscles, soothing

7. Marjoram: soothes muscles, calms nerves, antimicrobial, antiseptic

8. Valor: balances electrical energies in the body, promotes balance and alignment

Aroma Siez: relaxes muscles, soothes aching or sore muscles

The Raindrop Massage Technique

If you've ever had a massage or aromatherapy treatment, you will be amazed at the unique application involved in Raindrop Massage Treatment. The specific way in which essential oils are applied to the back and foot areas directly contributes to its healing capabilities, as does the Vita Flex massage technique it involves.

In other types of aromatherapy massage treatments, it is common for the therapist to blend essential oils in the palm of the hand before applying them through massage. During Raindrop Massage, essential oils are very carefully dripped onto specific points on the feet and spine. The effect mimics the fall of raindrops. This allows the skin to sense and absorb each oil in the same way it would falling drops of rain in the natural environment.

Vita Flex techniques are used in Rainbow Massage to help manipulate the flow of energy throughout the body. This involves precise movements of the fingers and palms over the reflex points where the essential oils have been dropped. This gentle type of massage is relaxing, safe and non-invasive. In combination with the essential oils used in Raindrop Massage, it is deeply relaxing and soothing.

The Raindrop Massage Experience

Raindrop Massage treatments usually begin with the feet. Your practitioner will drip essential oils on reflex points on the insides of both of your feet, and then perform the Vita Flex massage. It is common to feel a sensation of warmth after the essential oils are applied to your skin as well as during the Vita Flex massage. By the end of the foot treatment, you will start to feel relaxed and rejuvenated. The therapeutic benefits of the essential oils will begin to take effect, and you will feel immersed in the pleasant fragrances of the essential oils.

Following the foot treatment, the Raindrop Massage technique is applied to the spine. The sensation of warmth, tingling, and relaxation becomes even more pronounced as the oils continue to be applied to the spine and Vita Flex massage begins.

The massage technique feels very gentle and involves easy strokes, taps or rolling movements. Vita Flex massage technique is designed to enhance absorption of the essential oils, but it also stimulate the reflex points. This promotes the release of toxins and supports healing and balance, and it also energizes the body.

A warm compress may be applied to your back to complete your Raindrop Massage treatment. Any back pain or discomfort you were experiencing prior to the Raindrop Massage will dissipate during treatment, and you will feel refreshed and energized. One of the most unique benefits of the Raindrop Massage technique is the long-lasting effects it has on the body and mood. The general sense of well-being that results from each treatment lasts for several days.

Raindrop Massage is is an excellent healing therapy

Since Raindrop Massage is such a gentle form of massage, it is incredibly relaxing. Stress is thoroughly eliminated during a Raindrop Massage treatment. Because of its ability to align and balance the energy fields within the body, Raindrop Massage is an excellent healing therapy for treating anxiety, depression and chronic stress in addition to back or spine conditions.
