Raindrop Therapy


Raindrop Therapy

I offer Raindrop Technique originally from research of D. Gary Young and a Lokota medicine man in the 1970’s. It integrates Vita Flex (may have originated in Tibet) and massage with essential oils to bring the body into structural and electrical alignment.

This technique was originally used to assist the body in correcting defects in the curvature of the spine. It does this by addressing viruses and bacteria that lie dormant along the spine. These pathogens create inflammation, which in turn creates structural changes in the spine. There has been success with kyphosis, scoliosis, effective detox for Herpes, shingles, MRSA, cold and flu, repairing the immune system, and ideal for those travel bugs you may have experienced from a long plane ride to get here.


Essential Oils are the life force of the plant containing vitamins, minerals, enzymes and hormones. The oils work as the defense mechanism in the plants, they produce the same effect in the body, working at the cellular level increasing assimilation. The oils used are not diluted and all organic. Laura enjoys adding Raindrop oils spinal massage to her Chinese Medicine repertoire. Especially good when you are looking for that relaxing break from your regular work week, film work, to construction, vacation travel, and detoxing.
