CLASSES:
 
RAINDROP TECHNIQUE
Raindrop originated in the 1980's through the research of Dr. D. Gary Young.  Raindrop is a non-invasive tool integrating the art of aromatic science 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. 
 
APPLIED VITAFLEX
Vitaflex is an ancient Tibetan Technique that was brought to the USA by Stanley Burroughs in the late 1920's. Class participants will learn 13 basic Vitaflex techniques. This technique is one of the many ways essential oils can be applied to the body
 
HISTORY OF ANOINTING WITH OILS & LAYING ON OF HANDS
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 class will help clarify the valuable roles of essential oils in ancient and modern day. Every student will experience the  YLEO's in the original 12 Oils of Ancient oil Scripture kit. Based on the book, Healing Oils of the Bible by Dr. David Stewart.
 
EMOTIONAL RELEASE
Research has shown that intense and long-term stress can cause a number of physical health problems.  During an Emotional Release session, essential oils and blends are both applied and inhaled. These blends are formulated for their potential properties in the whole body. Class Participants will acquire an understanding of how essential oils may facilitate clearing of emotional patterns through lecture, demonstration, and a "personal" session.
 
CHEMISTRY OF ESSENTIAL OILS
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.
