A LITTLE INFORMATION ABOUT THE COURSES OF STUDY: 

RAINDROP TECHNIQUE
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 intention 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.

APPLIED VITAFLEX
Vitaflex is an ancient Tabetan technique 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.  Participants will learn 13 basic VitaFlex techniques during this portion of the seminar.  

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 seminar will help clarify the valuable roles of essential oils in ancient and modern day.  Every student will experience these ancient oils based on the book, "Healing Oils of the Bible" written by Dr. David Stewart, Ph.D

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:
   ~ Balancing energies in the body and opening the subconscious mind,
   ~ Promoting emotional release of stored memories, and
   ~ Promoting positive beliefs in the mind.
Class Participants will acquire an understanding of how essential oils may facilitate clearing of emotional patterns through lecture, demonstration, and a "Break-Out" session.

CHEMISTRY OF ESSENTIAL OILS
Those that 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.  The properties of essential oils that can bring wellness cannot be explained solely by science, as we know it.
