Raindrop Technique® uses therapeutic-grade essential oils to restore balance to your body and release toxins. The technique uses gentle slow strokes by applying essential oils first on your feet and then on your back. It has a rich history and is based on traditional massage therapies including back massage, Vita Flex and heat application.
The technique is designed to bring the body back into structural and electrical alignment. Often, many spinal problems and misalignments are caused by or exacerbated by toxins (such as viruses) that lie dormant within the spinal column. The use of essential oils helps to dispose of these toxins and viruses within the spine, helping its structure return to normal.
