Not many people are familiar with what Raindrop Massage Therapy is or the benefits is comprises. Raindrop Massage is one of our favorites here at Healing Solutions Inc, as it holds so many holistic benefits and provides you with an opportunity to learn more about essential oils!
What is Raindrop Therapy?
In the late 1980s a gentleman by the name of D. Gary Young (the founder of Young Living essential oils) developed this technique using essential oils. The technique utilizes several holistic modalities that allow the massage therapist to help restore balance and alignment in their patients’ body in a noninvasive manner. During the session, essential oils are dropped about six inches from the skin (giving this therapy its name) along the spine, neck and feet. This process is combined with reflexology and massage techniques in order to create a gentle experience to the body, inviting it to release and restore.
