Raindrop Technique

Massage for Healthy Soft Tissue

The Raindrop Technique combines the science of aromatherapy by applying Young Living Essential Oils with the techniques of reflexology, massage and Vita Flex. Vita Flex means “vitality through the reflexes” which is a specialized form of reflexive massage that uses rolling and releasing motions to activates reflex points. Essential oils are applied on the feet and back to bring structural and energetic alignment.

The Raindrop Technique is designed to bring balance and relaxation to the body. The frequency of the essential oils when combined with the body’s electrical frequency can help to align and clear the energy centers of the body.

The client will be on a massage table face up with feet exposed for application and Vita Flex technique. Once the oils have been applied to the feet, the client will turn over onto the stomach to have oils applied directly onto the back where the Raindrop Technique is applied.
