Raindrop technique combines the art of aromatherapy with the techniques of Vita Flex (Reflexology) and Massage in the application of essential oils to the feet and torso. Nine therapeutic-grade essential oils (Valor, Thyme, Basil, Wintergreen, Cypress, Peppermint, Oregano, Marjoram, Aroma Siez) are massaged into the feet and "dropped" from about six inches above your spine, simulating raindrops. This is a powerful technique which stimulates all the body systems, aids in immune function, assists the ability to concentrate, brings balance and alignment to the body and lifts the spirit in a non-invasive manner. Vita Flex Technique (vitality through the reflexes) is a specialized form of foot massage that is effective in delivering the benefits of essential oils throughout the body. It is based on a complete network of reflex points that stimulate all the internal body systems. Essential oils are applied to contact points and energy is released through electrical impulses created by contact between fingertips and the reflex points along the nerve pathways. Clients may experience a heightened immune function, state of awareness, a deeper sense of relaxation and further balance of body energies.
