What is Raindrop therapy?
Raindrop therapy is a powerful, non-invasive technique utilizing the antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory  action of several key essential oils to assist the body in maintaining normal spinal curvature: During the past  18 years it has helped alleviate or resolve many cases of scoliosis, sciatica, kyphosis (hunch back), chronic back pain, and has eliminated the need for back surgery for hundreds of people.
Some spinal misalignments are caused by viruses or bacteria that lie dormant along the spine. These pathogens create inflammation , which in turn contorts and disfigures the spinal column.
Essential oils are some of the most powerful inhibitors of microbes known, and as such are an important new weapon in combating many types of tissue infections. Essential oils have the ability to penetrate  the skin quickly and pass into bodily tissues to produce amazing therapeutic effects.
Raindrop therapy and your session.

The oils are dispensed like drops of rain from a height of about six inches above the back which are feathered and massaged along the vertebrae  and back muscles. Although the entire technique takes sixty minutes to complete, the oils continue to work in the body for up to one week following Raindrop Therapy. Often with a continued re-alignment taking place over this time. Rain drop therapy helps with relaxation , emotional release, tissue cleansing and helps with spinal misalignments .
Raindrop techniques and modalities used in your session.
Vita flex technique  means “vitality through reflexes”. It is a specialized form of hand and foot massage that is exceptionally effective in delivering the benefits of essential oils throughout the body. It is said to have originated in Tibet  thousands of years ago, and was perfected in the 1960’s by Stanly Burroughs long before acupuncture was popular in western medicine .
Vita flex 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 the fingertips and reflex points. This electrical charge follows the nerve pathways to a break or clog in the electrical circuit usually caused by toxins, damaged tissues, or loss of oxygen. These reflex points throughout the body are capable of releasing many kinds of tension, congestion, and imbalances.
The Lakota practice of effleurage or finger stroking is to distribute healing energy throughout the body. This technique creates a tingling effect for the recipient, commonly bringing them to goose bumps. The purpose of this feathering is to stimulate energy centers and awaken the receptors along the spine .
All of these techniques provide an exceptional experience  that allows healing on a profound and deep level. 
How and why does Raindrop Therapy work?
Doctor Gary Young incorporated into raindrop therapy nine of the most potent therapeutic/ grade essential oils.
All of  these oils have been heavily researched.  They were selected to synergistically combine to simultaneously kill viral and bacterial pathogens, reduce inflammation, support the immune system, ease respiratory discomfort, relax stressed muscles, curb digestive upset, and relieve body and joint discomfort, as well as balance energy, lift the spirit, restore calm,  and increase the ability to concentrate.
Raindrop technique is a sequence of anointing with oils and lying on of hands that brings structural and electrical alignment to the body in a relaxing and invigorating manner through the power of essential oils.  There are many versions of Raindrop Technique, but the same oils are always applied, through not always in the same sequence.  Most of the Raindrop oils are high in phenolic content to ward off potentially damaging viruses and bacteria while cleansing cellular receptors sites to enhance inter- and intra- cellular communication and improve overall bodily function.  Some raindrop oils contain a variety of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes to assist in deleting misinformation in the DNA and in reprogramming correct information in cellular memory to restore and maintain physical and emotional wellness.  The oils used in Raindrop Technique must be high quality therapeutic grade and are as follows:

BALANCING BLEND (Valor) (contains oils of spruce, rosewood, blue tansy, and frankincense in an almond oil base) Gentle and soothing, it helps balance bodily electricities and stimulate spinal realignment.
