Your peripheral nerves are the nerves outside your brain and spinal column. Most of them branch out from the spinal cord, making it an essential part of your health. Raindrop therapy benefits the spinal column nerves that feed the entire body. It’s a soothing treatment that relaxes and nurtures. Raindrop therapy promotes wellness long after the initial treatment. The benefits to the body can last for days, to even months after application.
Why is it Called Raindrop Therapy?
Raindrop therapy got its name from how the treatment’s essential oils are applied. The masseuse drips the oils along the spine from a height of about six inches. This mimics the feel of raindrops falling on the skin. It increases the relaxing, therapeutic feelings experienced during the session.
What is Raindrop Therapy?
During a raindrop treatment session, therapeutic essential oils are applied to the client’s spine, neck, and feet. The hour-long therapy combines aromatherapy, reflexology, massage, and moist heat to encourage alignment and healing in the body.
Nutritionist Gary Young developed raindrop therapy based on the theory that pathogens lie dormant in the spine. He believed that pathogens cause inflammation, therefore misaligning the spine. Antimicrobial oils reduce inflammation and kill pathogens, providing relief from symptoms.
Aromatherapy is a French technique of applying essential oils directly to the skin without diluting them first. The raindrop technique applies the oils in a specific pattern to best utilize the aromatherapy benefits. Valor is applied first, and then follows warmed oregano oil. Next is thyme, then basil, cypress, marjoram, wintergreen, aroma seiz, and the last is peppermint.
The oils used are:
- Basil: antiviral and antibacterial
- Cypress: circulation support
- Majoram: muscle relaxation
- Oregano: antibacterial
- Peppermint: tension release
- Thyme: antibacterial
- Wintergreen: rain relief
- Aroma Seiz: a special oil blend to relieve stress and fatigue
- Valor II: a special calming oil blend
- The massage oils V6 and Ortho Ease are used during the massage portion of the therapy
