Continuing Education Credit:
C.A.R.E. is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider. February 1, 2010 The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) has awarded CARE, Inc., the prestigious Authorized Provider status.

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 purpose 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.

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.

EMOTIONAL RELEASE                                                                                                                     Is emotional baggage keeping you from being the person you were designed to be? Clinical research shows that traumatic experiences are stored on a cellular level and have profound effects on one’s emotions and the physical state of the body. During an Emotional Release session, essential oil blends are both applied and inhaled. These blends are formulated for their unique ability to:

~ Balance energies in the body and open the subconscious mind
~ Promote emotional release of negative stored memories
~ Program the mind with positive beliefs
Class Participants will acquire an understanding of how essential oils may facilitate clearing of negative emotional patterns through lecture, demonstration, and a “Break-Out” session.

To you who have little or no background in chemistry, yet desire a basic understanding of essential oils, this class is for you. To you who may even fear chemistry and avoided it in school, fear no more. This class is for you. And to you who may have degrees in chemistry, even advanced degrees, this class is for you, too, because the unique composition and character of essential oils is not found in college textbooks, nor is it yet a part of the college curriculum of most university regimens. As you will discover, the properties of essential oils that bring healing and maintain health cannot be explained solely by science as we know it. The power of essential oils is more than chemistry.

Ancient Scripture is full of hundreds of references to “precious” oils: Aloes, Cassia, Frankincense, Galbanum, Hyssop, Balm, Spikenard, Cedarwood, Myrrh, and many more. They were considered: “the best products of the land,” “the work of a skilled apothecary,” “most holy” and “treasured gifts.” This seminar will help clarify the valuable roles of essential oils in ancient and modern day health care and show how they are intricately designed by our Creator.

What you can expect:

Upon Completion of the Bible Oils Class you will be able to cite books of the Old and New Testaments containing information on essential oils as well as their Biblical and modern applications.

Upon Completion of the Applied Vitaflex Class you will be able to perform 13 Vitaflex Procedures, to understand the scientific basis for Vitaflex, to know when and to whom to apply them, and what benefits can be expected from their application.

Upon Completion of the Raindrop Technique Training you will be able to perform the entire Raindrop protocol, understand its limits and precautions, and know its potential benefits. This class also leads to your becoming a Certified Raindrop Practitioner.

Upon Completion of the CARE Chemistry Class you will gain a scientific understanding of how the compounds of essential oils reach to cellular levels and how they bring therapy to the various organs and tissues of the body.

Upon Completion of the Emotional Release Class you will be able to correlate physical maladies with repressed emotions, to use essential oils to locate emotional issues stored in the cells of the body, and will know how to release them for yourself and others.
