What is the Raindrop Technique?
This technique uses a combination of three therapies: Aromatherapy, Pressure-point reflexive massage, and feather stroking, a massage technique that uses light strokes.
Using This Technique
Undiluted essential oils are applied to the skin in layers and blended by using different strokes. I use a sequence of highly antimicrobial essential oils in my sessions applied directly to the skin.
These essential oils are:
- OREGANO – (Origanum vulgare), even more aggressive than thyme in fighting infections. It also has many immune properties against viruses and bacteria. It is a powerful germ fighting agent for respiratory infections, intestines, liver protectant, nerves, blood, and lymphatics, with protects against bacteria, mycobacterium, fungus, virus, and parasites. It is a general tonic and immune stimulant. This oil may help digestion problems, balance the metabolism, fight against viral and bacterial pneumonia, and strengthen the vital centers. Creates a feeling of security.
- THYME – (Thymus vulgaris) is documented to be highly antimicrobial. Thyme is also beneficial to fight fungal forms, virus, bacteria, and is a tonic for uterine and cardiovascular systems. It has been used for respiratory problems, digestive complaints, the prevention and treatment of infections, gastritis, bronchitis, pertussis, asthma, laryngitis, and tonsillitis. This oil is a general tonic for the nerves and stomach. It may also help with bacterial infections, circulation, mood swings, digestion, headaches, sleeplessness, rheumatism, urinary infections, fatigue and exhaustion after illness.
- BASIL – (Ocimum Basilicum) has properties to reduce spasms and relax the muscles. It is also relaxing to smooth muscles (the involuntary muscles including the heart and digestive system). Basil, is derived from the Greek word, basilicon, meaning a “royal” ointment or remedy. It soothes insect bites such as bees, wasps, and spiders. Basil has been found to alleviate mental fatigue, muscle spasms, and inflammation and restores the sense of smell due to nasal congestion. Because of its action basil will work on smooth muscles and striated muscles.
- CYPRESS – (Cupressus sempervirens) “sempervivens’ means “live forever” Supports circulation and relieves spasms and swelling. Cypress also helps heal damaged tissue. It not only improves the action of the circulatory and lymphatic systems, it aids in reducing edema, cellulite, varicose veins, and water retention. It is immune system supportive, antimicrobial, mucolytic, antiseptic, and relaxing. It may help improve the cardiovascular system to improve the circulation as well as help relieve other lymphatic and capillary problems. Cypress is noted for its durability. Eases the feeling of loss and creates a sense of grounding. Helps with emotional trauma and life flow better.
- WINTERGREEN– (Gaultheria Procumbens) is known for its analgesic (pain relieving) properties due to the high methyl salicylate content it has which makes it excellent for bones. The leaves have been chewed to increase respiratory capacity by Native Americans when running long distances and performing difficult labor. Settlers in early America had their children chew the leaves for several weeks each spring to prevent tooth decay. Wintergreen was used as a substitute for Black Tea during the Revolutionary war. It may be beneficial for cystitis, acne, bladder infection, gout, gallstones, edema, eczema, osteoporosis, skin disease, ulcers, and urinary tract disorders. Some of its historical uses have been for arthritis, rheumatism, inflammation, muscular pain, tendonitis, hypertension, and for cramps. It stimulates and increases awareness in all levels of the sensory system.
- MARJORAM – (Origanum majorana) helps relax muscles. It also helps regenerate smooth muscle tissue, and assists in relieving spasms, sprains, bruises, and migraine headaches. Used for respiratory, PMS, fungal infections, ringworm, shingles, sores. Its fragrant influences assists in calming the nerves and is relaxing and calming to the muscles.
- PEPPERMINT – (Mentha piperita) has powerful pain-blocking properties. It also works synergistically with other oils to enhance their activity. Peppermint also stimulates circulation and cools inflamed tissue. A 1994 double-blind placebo-controlled, randomized cross-over study at the University of Kiel In Germany found that peppermint oil exerted significant analgesic effect (Goble et al., 1994) Peppermint is one of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion. Jean Valnet, M.D. studied peppermint’s effect on the liver and respiratory systems. When inhaled. Dr. William N. Dember of University of Cincinnati studied peppermint’s ability to improve concentration and mental accuracy. Alan Hirsh, M.D., studied peppermint’s ability to directly affect the brain’s satiety center (the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus) which triggers a sensation of fullness after meals. It supports digestion, expels worms, decongestant, immune supportive, mucolytic, stimulant, hypertensive, cardiotonic, stimulates gallbladder function, pain relieving, expectorant, and helps reduce inflammation in the intestinal and urinary tract, reduces fevers, heat strokes, and shock. It can heighten or restore the sense of taste by stimulating the trigeminal nerve.
- Aroma Siez – Is a blend of essential oils that helps relax sore, tense, or inflamed muscles. An advanced complex of muscle-relaxing essential oils that help relax and relieve tight, sore, tired, inflamed, and aching muscles resulting from sports injuries, fatigue, or stress. It may also help relieve headaches or spasms.
What Can Essential Oils Do?
Highly antimicrobial oils reduce inflammation and kill viruses and bacteria that live dormant in the spine. Using these oils helps bring the body back into structural and electrical alignment. Since each vertebra also corresponds to body organs, this deeply relaxing session is holistic with far-reaching results. The goal is to harmonize and balance the body physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.
What to Expect:
Starting with Vita Flex on the feet, this session progresses with slow, gentle work on the spine, utilizing soft strokes inspired by Lakota Indian Feather Stroking. We wrap up the session with a hot towel soak over the spinal area and some Healing Touch therapy on the scalp.
