Raindrop Technique®

Raindrop Technique® is a tool you can use to reduce stress and tension, manage pain, strengthen the immune system, detox the body, and bring harmony to the heart and mind. Allow yourself to be taken on a journey of relaxation and harmony. Your session begins with an energy balance, then your feet are pampered with Vitaflex, ancient Tibetan reflexology.  After rolling over, purifying raindrops of therapeutic grade essential oils fall through your aura cleansing your spiritual body before they splash upon your back. Using spine tingling American Indian techniques the oils are then feathered in. Your muscles relax as they are anointed with these aromatic oils chosen specifically to stimulate your immune system and bring harmony and balance to your body, mind, emotions and spirit. It is suitable for people and animals (yes, animals, too) of any age, in any state of health. It can be greatly beneficial as a single session, but if you truly desire to bring about change and certainty in your life, regular sessions are recommended. $155 (Raindrop Practitioner), $250 (Master Clinical Aromatherapist)

Testimonial: “Young Living oils are proving increasingly useful in my daily life. But the most profound experiences, by far, have been during the Raindrop Technique. Several oils were placed on my feet, still more on my back. I saw visions, experienced intense cold and heat. My body trembled, quaked and shuddered its way through some very powerful emotional releases. I truly believe that I’m becoming more…myself because of this technique and the oils used. Powerful stuff.”  – Gill Hovenden
