What is Raindrop Therapy?

What is Raindrop Therapy? - Blog - Bellís Therapeutic Spa - 5468452_sMassage therapy has grown into a mainstream industry that has moved beyond traditional relaxation techniques.  Raindrop therapy, invented in the 1980s by D. Gary Young, takes the great benefits of massage to a whole new level.  

Imagine combining the soft sound of a gentle rain dripping on the leaves of a giant oak, the soothing warmth of warm oil lightly kissing your spine, neck and feet, and essential oil deeply penetrating through your pores, benefiting your health and well-being - that's raindrop therapy.  

What Is Raindrop Therapy?

Raindrop therapy is a combination of holistic techniques that provide a synergistic effect by combining aromatherapy (undiluted essential oils that are applied to the body for enhanced well-being), Vita Flex (slight pressure applied to the body that creates a beneficial electric charge), and feather stroking (long, light strokes).  

What Happens During a Raindrop Therapy Massage?

Undiluted essential oils are dropped about 6 inches directly onto the spine, feeling like rain drops gently caressing your spine, creating relaxation and comfort.  It's believed that the electromagnetic properties of the oils are enhanced by the client's own electric field.  The oils then penetrate through the back, releasing their powerful properties.  Then, the feather stroking technique is used to relax the client and work the oils into the skin.

The Benefits of Raindrop Therapy

Raindrop therapy has a myriad of benefits including:

  • Stress reduction
  • Balancing the body's energy centers
  • Pain reduction
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Improved circulation
  • Detoxification
  • Improved immune function

So, the next time you're in need of a little self-care, head to your favorite spa and experience the power of raindrop therapy!
