This is a foundational class in essential oil training and you will come away with a strong understanding for how to use them at home personally as well as in your office. This class is open to friends, family, massage therapists, estheticians, and anyone wanting to learn. We will discuss thoroughly essential oil characteristics, actions, benefits, safety precautions, purchasing, and a variety of methods for application and use. During this hands-on workshop you will gain an understanding of the practical applications of therapeutic grade essential oils and how to integrate them into life as well as any massage style or simply to enhance your well-being. You will become familiar with the therapeutic benefits of the nine essential oils specifically used in the Raindrop Therapy Technique which is very easy to learn to do. There will be lecture, demonstration and you practice the technique during an exchange. You do not need to be a massage therapist to do this essential oil application however it is easily able to be added onto a massage. You will be supplied with a small set of your own essential oil kit for practicing.
This application technique combines the use of several essential oils with specific movements for applying them to the bottom of the feet and to the back only. It is a great addition to any facial practice and/or your massage practice by incorporating it into a full body massage, used prior to hot stone, bamboo or salt stone massage, or as a stand alone session. It is great for overall wellness and can be done on your friends and family. Raindrop Technique is a powerful, non-invasive approach for assisting the body by utilizing the antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action of several key essential oils. The Vita Flex technique used in Raindrop Therapy is a specialized form of delivering the benefits of the essential oils throughout the whole body by utilizing contact between the fingertips and specific points along the bottom of the feet and on the back along the spine. The combination of the essential oils, Vita Flex techniques as well as the specific application stokes makes this therapy very unique.
The popularity and requests for this specific modality is growing because of the many benefits clients report. You will hear back from your clients, friends, and family as to how deeply relaxing the session was on an entirely different level than a traditional massage. Many of the reported benefits are reduced pain, reduced inflammation, improved circulation, relieves stress, improves immune system and that they felt the benefits days after the session, as well as others we will discuss in the workshop. We will discuss the safe use of properly applying these essential oils as well as making adjustments in oil choices based on each client.
