“I enjoy the raindrop reiki massage therapy because not only do you get intangible relief, such as redirecting good & bad energy, but you also get tangible relief, aromatherapy plus a light massage.” – James Kings Beach, CA

Improving muscle tension, mental chatter, emotional & energetic blockages, Raindrop Reiki allows you to melt away as you fill with the light and energy of Reiki.
In this version of Raindrop technique from Young Living, Marianne uses Reiki; light massage on the feet and the back; 9 essential oils; hot compresses and a relaxing environment, to bring balance and harmony to you mind, body and soul.
