The Benefits of Raindrop Technique
The essential oils used in Raindrop have antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. They promote back and spine health by aiding in detoxification. These essential oils help the body rid itself of the viruses, bacteria, and toxins that cause inflammation, pain, and disfigurement in the spine.
The Vita Flex Massage technique used to apply the oils benefits the back by stimulating circulation and promoting lymphatic drainage, and the essential oils used support this process. These oils also enable the detoxification process to continue for up to seven days following each session.
The essential oils promote alignment. Not only do they aid in the alignment of the spine, they also align and balance the flow of energy throughout the body by opening or releasing blockages that are preventing free circulation. Like detoxification, this alignment process continues for several days following the treatment.

The Massage Technique Investment
If you've ever had a massage or aromatherapy treatment, you will be amazed at the unique application involved in Raindrop treatment. The specific way in which essential oils are applied to the back and foot areas directly contributes to its healing capabilities, as does the Vita Flex massage technique it involves.
In other types of aromatherapy massage treatments, it is common for the therapist to blend essential oils in the palm of the hand before applying them through massage. During the massage, essential oils are very carefully dripped onto specific points on the feet and spine. The effect mimics the fall of raindrops. This allows the skin to sense and absorb each oil in the same way it would falling drops of rain in the natural environment.
Vita Flex techniques are used in Raindrop to help manipulate the flow of energy throughout the body. This involves precise movements of the fingers and palms over the reflex points where the essential oils have been dropped. This gentle type of massage is relaxing, safe, and non-invasive.
If you suffer from aches and pains in your back, poor posture, or curvature of the spine, Raindrop Massage is a terrific healing option. The technique was specifically designed to promote back health and correct curvatures of the spine.
This massage technique is a gentle, safe healing option that provides many benefits for anyone suffering from back pain or spinal defects. It is also beneficial to those concerned with avoiding injury during sports training and anyone who wants to maintain good back and spine health. It uses essential oils which are dropped onto areas of the back as well as the insides of the feet, and similar areas that correspond with the spine in reflexology. The oils are gently massaged into these areas where they work to align and detoxify the spine and back tissues.
