Combination Of Reflexology, Massage And Aromatherapy
Raindrop therapy is the combination of reflexology, massage, vita-flex techniques and the science of aromatherapy. This therapy uses nine different essential oils to aid the body balance, align the energy centres and release them if blocked. The oils are applied to the feet, spine and legs. Each essential oil has positive and unique effects, which balance, align the body and promote a deep sense of relaxation. Raindrop therapy should not be done if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or if you are taking blood thinners.
