About Raindrop Technique

What are the Benefits?

Raindrop-TechniqueRaindrop Technique was developed as a result of research indicating that many forms of back problems are caused by muscle tension and toxins resulting in discomfort. The essential oils can help reduce these leaving the back less tight and tense since most of the essential oils used create an environment that clears toxins. The legs and feet are also massaged with several of the oils which helps to clean toxins from the system. The effects are cumulative over several sessions and the results can vary depending on the individual. Raindrop Therapy can also help with stress reduction and energy balancing. A wonderful process begins with a Raindrop Technique session that combines the subtle oils, the intelligence of the body, and attention to the whole person.
