Massages are a great addition to your self-care routine. Not only do they feel wonderful and leave you relaxed and ready to tackle the day, there are a number of health benefits that accompany regular massages. These health benefits are both physical and mental and extend far past the time of your massage. Among other things, massages help you sleep better, improve your circulation, and boost your immune system. However, there are many different types of massages and each technique is unique. Today, we wanted to talk a little bit about raindrop massages and their benefits.

What is a raindrop massage?

A raindrop massage is a unique massage that combines the power of essential oils, aromatherapy, and different massage techniques. Essential oils are concentrated oils that are commonly extracted from nature and used in aromatherapy. They can be derived from things such as plants, flowers, seeds, fruit, herbs, resin, leaves, grasses, wood, and even bark. When used in aromatherapy, essential oils help your body heal itself through self-regulation and balance. The reason we love essential oils and aromatherapy is because of the natural ingredients and lack of harmful chemicals. Raindrop massages incorporate both essential oils and aromatherapy into a rejuvenating massage to help encourage balance throughout your body.

How can it help me feel better?

This particular massage comes with a number of health benefits, both physical and mental. Due to analgesic properties in many essential oils, raindrop massages have been known to reduce pain and relax the muscles in your body. Depending on your individual needs, your practitioner will choose oils that target your specific concerns and ailments. Certain oils help to reduce overall inflammation in the body and the oxygenating properties of most oils help improve circulation. You will experience cellular cleansing and a full-body detoxification from the natural ingredients in different combinations of essential oils. Finally, raindrop massages help to improve your immune system and boost your overall emotional well-being. If you’re stressed, feeling anxious, or need a pick-me-up, opt for a raindrop massage during your next session with us. The oil penetrates your skin quickly and you’ll start to feel better almost immediately.

What sets this massage style apart from the others is the application of the essential oils during the massage. A certified practitioner will apply droplets of these oils along your back and spine in a way that makes the oils look like raindrops falling on the skin. Then your massage therapist works the specially selected oils into your skin using varying massage techniques. Most raindrop massages also include application of the essential oils to your soles and shoulders for a more intensified session.
