Seven Benefits of the Raindrop Technique

If you want to invigorate tired and stressed muscles, relieve neck and back pain, de-stress or simply slip into a blissful state of relaxation.

What Are Essential Oils? Essential oils are the concentrated essences extracted from raw materials such as; plants, flowers, herbs, resin, leaves, seeds, wood, bark, fruit and grasses.
What is Aromatherapy? Aromatherapy is the systematic use of volatile plant oils known as essential oils. Aromatherapy is a complementary therapy designed to treat the “whole” person by assisting the body’s natural ability to regulate, balance and maintain itself. The therapeutic essential oils support the body by bringing it back to balance without harmful side effects of chemical based products.
What is Raindrop Therapy?
This 60 or 90 minute therapy is a wonderfully rejuvenating and deeply relaxing topical application of therapeutic essential oils. Raindrop Therapy combines several holistic modalities to bring balance to the body in a non-invasive manner. It also stimulates all of the body systems on a physical and emotional level.  The oils used in Raindrop are therapeutic grade and NOT adulterated oils. Adulterated oils contain synthetic chemicals or compounds and can be harmful to the body.
What Does It Involve?
The relaxing and mild application of the therapeutic-grade oils are gently dispensed like “little raindrops” up along the spine and back. The oils are worked into the skin by using soft feather-like movements and strokes. The essential oils are also applied to soles of feet and shoulders for reinforced benefits.
Why Is It Called Raindrop?
The essential oils are gently  dispensed like “little raindrops” along the spine and back.


1. Reduces Everyday Aches
Since its development, it is becoming clear that the elements of Raindrop therapy not only reduces chronic aches but also benefits other body systems. The analgesic ingredients in the essential oils may help reduce everyday aches and discomfort.
2. Helps Relief Stress & Emotional Well-being
Therapeutic essential oils have a normalizing effect on the nervous system making them ideal for reducing stress, anxiety and tension.
The oils can immediately penetrate cell membranes and diffuse through the blood and tissues instantly in a matter of seconds! The oils also cross the brain-blood barrier and effect the limbic system (the Amygdale) parts of the brain that control our mood, behavior and emotions. So if you’ve lost your  “Joie de Vivre” Raindrop therapy will have you smiling and back to your normal self in no time.
3. Relax Muscles
Muscles that are sore, spastic or stressed will also benefit from Raindrop Therapy. Basil, wintergreen, marjoram, cypress and peppermint essential oils help with all the common muscle conditions.
4. Helps Reduce InflammationWorld wide studies have identified several essential oils as powerful anti-inflammatory agents. These include wintergreen, peppermint and thyme. These essential oils are all used in the Raindrop essential oil body therapy.
5. Helps Improve CirculationEssential oils can be most beneficial in boosting circulation due to oxygenating properties. The essential oils of cypress, thyme, marjoram and peppermint all have properties that increase circulation and act as a circulatory stimulant.
6. Helps Detox the Body Systems
The therapeutic oils used in Raindrop therapy are high in phenols hence, cleanse cellular receptor sites and enhance the lymphatic system.
7. Helps improve Immune function
Thyme and oregano essential oils are known to support the immune system. They also create an unfavorable environment for harmful viruses and bacteria that can hibernate and lay dormant in the body.
In short, the benefits of this therapy go well beyond the physical benefits. Raindrop can not only help relieve pain and restore immediate physical well-being, but it can set in motion the healing processes that will last for weeks.

Hydrafacial Review from Suede Esthetician Sharon

Suede Salon and Spa introduced the HydraFacial in October 2014.  The HydraFacial resurfacing procedure thoroughly cares for your skin, providing cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, and hydration, including Vortex-Fusion of antioxidants, peptides and hylaronic acid.  The HydraFacial is a non invasive, non-surgical procedure that delivers instant results with no discomfort or downtime.  The procedure is immediately effective.  

After months of experiencing and performing the Hydrafacial, Suede Esthetician Sharon expresses her opinion on the results driven by the treatment.  See her review below: 

The HydraFacial has now become High Tech and, I am truly amazed each time at the instant results of the " Hydra Facial"  and how it can act as a catalyst to help someone achieve a more beautiful healthy glowing complexion.  It clearly does it all in 60 minutes or less.Within the 60 minute treatment, we start with a complete lymphatic drainage therapy of the facial lymph nodes:  This eliminates the toxins and promotes insured nourishment. The skin achieves balance which results in a cleaner complexion and improved skin tone and color.  Also it helps in reduction in wrinkles due to dehydration, reduces puffy skin and helps with acne prone complexions.Next, we apply treatment solutions in up to five separate applications with the use of various  "vortex-fusion" tips.  This in itself is what makes the treatment unique, pain-free and requires no down time.The tips allow for a simultaneous "vortex-fusion" of skin specific solutions during the treatment process.  The solutions are brought out of the tip through occlusion.  The grooves in the tips from the spiral design allow for multiple passes over the skin resulting in a more even exfoliation; and using vacuum based technology, is able to lift away impurities and dead cells.

The treatment solutions include the following:A.  Cleaning and exfoliation.....cleanses deeply with a base of glucosamine, lactic and urea.B.  Resurfacing step.......applies a peel prep of glycolic/salicylic acid blendC.  Pain free extractions are performed through suction method backed by a salicylic/honey prepD. The "Dermabuilder" (optional) is applied for fine lines and wrinkles.  This topical filler is loaded with peptides which will smooth lines and wrinkles and enhance skin elasticity.E. The last solution applied addresses the "hydration" of the skin by infusing a cocktail of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid which holds 1000 x's it weight in water....super hydration!
The whole procedure ends with LED light therapy in a red or blue light. The red light helps the appearance of redness or irritation and signs of aging.  There are 24 LED lights in the hand piece. 12 of 624 nanometers and 12 of 880 nanometers.  The blue light improves the appearance of oily or congested skin with 20 LED lights at 420 nanometers.

For best results in bringing your skin to optimal health levels, it is recommended to do six treatments as close as possible.  One each week for three weeks; then one every other week for three weeks; then monthly maintenance.
To have your skin looking its best for a special occasion, you can't go wrong for an instant improvement.
In a nutshell, this procedure.....cleans, exfoliates, resurfaces, extracts, lightens, refines wrinkles and infuses hydration with no pain or downtime with a healthy powerhouse of ingredients that restore beautiful healthy skin. What more could one want!  I am truly amazed!
