Raindrop therapy and the therapeutic process
Raindrop therapy uses a layering process of 9 different Young Living's therapeutic/medicinal grade essential oils applied to the feet, back and spine. The combination of these oils, and the application of a warm heating pad applied to the spine and back, allows the oils to penetrate your body rapidly and begin their therapeutic process on a cellular level. This therapy has been known to 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 it is believed that viruses and bacteria lie dormant until the immune system weakens. The oils create an environment that is not hospitable to these “foreign” agents in our bodies and causes them to be eliminated naturally.
It’s yoga, acupressure, Holy Fire Reiki, sound therapy, essential oils, deep compression work and myofascial release with the power of spirit, all rolled into one. Thai/Shiatsu massage therapy uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body’s energy systems. It is both deeply relaxing and energizing.
Thai/Shiatsu massage therapy takes place on a futon mat on the floor and you wear loose fitting clothing. I have you start by laying on your back, and I use gentle compression and stretching techniques to open up your body, beginning with your feet and working into your legs, hips, shoulders and back. I end the session with rejuvenating sound therapy. Thai/Shiatsu massage therapy is like doing yoga without any effort. I gently coax your body into various positions without any work on your part. The purpose is to assist your physical, emotional and spiritual bodies in healing.
The purpose of Raindrop Technique is to stimulate every organ, muscle and bone of the body at a cellular level through the oils, boosting the immune system, bringing the body into structural/electrical balance, including those illnesses lodged in the mind and emotions.
Vitaflex is an ancient Tibetan healing methodology, which is taken from the phrase “Vitality through the reflexes.” This effective technique is a specialized form of foot massage that delivers the benefits of therapeutic grade essential oils throughout the body. Vitaflex makes use of the piezoelectric characteristics of the human body where pressure however slight, induces voltages and corresponding currents in the body.
This fascinating network of reflex points stimulate all the internal body systems and energy is released through these impulses created between the therapist’s fingertips and the reflex points. This electrical charge follows the nerve pathways to a break in the electrical circuit caused by toxins, damaged tissues or loss of oxygen. Rapid and extraordinary results are experienced when combining therapeutic grade essential oils with Vitaflex stimulation, as the effects are increased to release many kinds of tension, congestion and imbalances.
