RAINDROP TECHNIQUE
Raindrop originated in the 1980's through the research of Dr. D. Gary Young.  Raindrop is a powerful, non-invasive tool integrating the art of aromatic science with the technique of Vitaflex and gentle applications of therapeutic grade oils on the feet and back. The intention of Raindrop Technique is to stimulate every organ, muscle and bone at a cellular level bringing the body into structural and electrical balance, enabling the release of toxins wherever they may be. This may include those lodged in the mind and emotions.

APPLIED VITAFLEX
Vitaflex is an ancient healing modality that was rediscovered by Stanley Burroughs in the late 1920's. Vitaflex is a digital electrical stimulation that activates neuro-pathways, delivering benefits of the essential oils. The body has a self-regulating electrical system that Vitaflex stimulates.
