How I can help.

Raindrop Technique is a procedure for applying essential oils to the feet, back and spine. It is a form of aromatherapy. Raindrop incorporates certain Native American concepts, including a special form of massage called “feather stroking” which is similar to a massage technique called “effleurage”.

Another aspect of Raindrop is Vita Flex, a therapeutic maneuver adapted from Oriental acupuncture, acupressure, and reflexology. Vita Flex involves the gentle pressing and rolling of the Raindrop facilitator’s fingertips upon the Raindrop receiver’s body surface at specific meridians or reflex points. The theory of Vita Flex utilizes the fact that the human skin is piezoelectric. That is, when even a slight pressure is applied to the body surface, a voltage is generated, and electric charges move accordingly. The currents so generated are thought to be of therapeutic value.

NeurOptimal, is an Electroencephalographic (EEG) neurofeedback technology which uses a computer to train your brain to be more flexible (or resilient) by encouraging it to change itself. As a result of this neuroplasticity, NeurOptimal trains the brain towards optimal functioning thus reducing undesirable symptoms enabling you to perform more optimally in your life.

NeurOptimal can benefit all brains from newborn to elderly. High functioning executives to those struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD, insomnia, ADHD, stress, chronic headaches, pain, fatigue, TBI, cognitive decline from again. This non-invasive alternative to mainstream treatments (like talk therapy or medication), may be of benefit to you. 

My story.

Throughout my life, serving others has been my joy and passion. From helping my students over the years to be their best selves, to my more recent adventure with a wellness company. Assisting others with their health and wellness journey (removing toxins from their lives). About 5 years ago I experienced my first Raindrop, where I experienced such a powerful movement/shift in my body. An overwhelmingly positive experience which was almost hard to describe.  Such a fresh feeling, weight lifted, more positive outlook on life. I was so relaxed, and didn’t feel the weight of my stress.

Since then I have had the pleasure of receiving many Raindrop’s, unpacking my layers and healing. The release I have had, I knew it was something that I wanted and needed to provide for others! I decided to take the training through the CARE program (Center for Aromatherapy) so that I would be certified to facilitate this experience for others.

Over the last few years I have felt and seen many positive shifts in my life and my physical and mental health. To the point where it has become almost addictive and exciting with the anticipation of “how much better can it truly get?” There are definitely some areas I know that I can still improve. I was introduced to NeurOptimal and it has been another game changer for me. Being able to mentally adapt more quickly, being flexible, and more resilient to change comes with ease now instead of struggle.

I believe that no one should have to walk through life carrying the weight of trauma. I want to help others feel free, light, happiness and joy!

Life outside the office.

I love spending time with my greatest blessings, my three children! We recently adopted a rescue pup, so lots of cuddles, training and walking. I try to enjoy most of my time outdoors, barefoot (not in the winter of course). I love walking, hiking, biking, skiing, hockey… I spend a lot of time on the beach rejuvenating near the water, with my feet in the sand.

Testimonials.

“My Raindrop session helped to release pent up emotions and stress, creating whole body relaxation. Nancy was very professional and helped me to be even more relaxed with her calm caring demeanor.” -Renee

“I have found that the Raindrop Technique that Nancy Champagne employs has been a highly effective method of getting me passed some issues I wasn’t able to address any other way. My first treatment helped to release compression in my spine (my height measurement increased by ½”) and afterwards I had a ‘cleansing experience’. My second Raindrop helped me to release a hitch in my shoulder blade and mid back that was troubling me for weeks after a bad fall. I experienced even more ‘cleansing’ and slept like a baby that night. Thanks Nancy, I can’t wait for my next Raindrop in your new location!” -Kathleen

“Receiving a Raindrop from Nancy is a peaceful, safe, relaxing wellness experience.” -Tara
