This is an essential oil massage technique based on Lakota Native healings. Raindrop Therapy is the application of powerful antibacterial, antiviral oils along the spine.
Raindrop Technique was developed by D.Gary Young, founder of Young Living Essential Oils, based on techniques taught to him by a Lakota medicine man named Wallace Black Elk. InLakota Native American healing practices, healers sweep a feather upwards along the spine in imitation of the Northern Lights, which are revered for their healing energy.
Vitaflex, a foot reflexology technique, is used to apply the same oils to the spine reflexology points at the beginning of the raindrop. 9 essential oilsare used in raindrop: 7 single oils and 2 therapeutic blends. A person receiving raindrop lays face down as oils are dropped on their back froma height of 6-12 inches. The oils are gently massaged in with the Lakota feathering motion. After the essential oils have been applied, a warm towel is applied to the back to drive the oils further into the body. At Body-Wise, this is further enhanced by using hot stone massage along the back to bring enhanced feelings of relaxation as well as thebenefits of therapeutic massage to your treatment session.
When it comes to treating back pain as well as knee pain, tight shoulders, supporting the immune system with detoxification as well as digestive system discomfort it can be hard to find something that will bring the body’s systems into alignment quite the way Raindrop Therapy will. Combine this with the use of hot stones and an enhanced neck and shoulder massage and you have power to bring the body back into balance.
