The Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider.
History of Anointing - 2 hrs
Applied Vitaflex - 4 hrs
Raindrop Technique - 8 hrs
Emotional Release - 5 hrs
Chemistry of Essential Oils - 6 hrs  
The CARE Intensive provides practically applied aromatherapy skills as the foundation for all Raindrop Technique certifications. It is for non-professionals wishing to empower themselves with knowledge that may increase the health and well-being of themselves, their families and friends. As well as for health professionals who desire to learn about and/or integrate essential oils into their practice.
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.
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.
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 our Creator intricately designed them.
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. 
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.
At the end of the History of Anointing With Oils Class you will have sampled and experienced the most common 12 Oils of Sacred Scriptures and be able to identify scripture 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 basis for Vitaflex, and what benefits may be expected from their application.
At the end 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 is part of the foundation for becoming a Certified Raindrop Technique Specialist.
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 can bring benefits to the various organs and tissues of the body.
At the end of the Emotional Release Class you will be able understand how physical maladies may correlate with repressed emotions, to use essential oils to locate where emotional issues may be stored in the body, and learn a protocol aimed at releasing them for yourself and others.
Learn how to become a Certified Raindrop Technique Specialist (CRTS), Licensed Spiritual Healer (LSH), Board Certified Raindrop Specialist (BCRS) or Certified CARE Instructor (CCI) and legally facilitate/teach Raindrop and Vitaflex.

What Some People Say About This C.A.R.E. Training
“This class was easy to understand and what I am taking away is very applicable in several areas of my life.  Thank you for this training.” 
~Sheila B., Walla Walla, WA

~Rochelle J., Longview, WA

“Through this program one can learn the healing properties and therapeutic applications of essential oils. I found this to be a valuable asset in the oncology patient in restoring balance, relaxation, sense of well- being & enabling them to reduce stress & pain levels. Every nurse should experience this natural approach to health. The chemistry class was particularly interesting to me because of the scientific rationale. This was an excellent seminar, Marie Koepke is a great communicator and I would recommend this program to every nurse!”
~ Peggy Goodwin, RN, BSN, Oncology Ad. Clinician, Encinitas, CA

“I just returned from Care Intensive less than a week ago.  I am ready to go back!  I was told that this is where I needed to be if I wanted to live a life with Wellness, Purpose, and Abundance using the blessings that are the Young Living essential oils! Right on! These classes opened my mind to infinite possibilities in how to use essential oils for me, my family and my friends. Marie Koepke taught our class at a level that resonated with every type of learning style.  She made complex topics like the Chemistry of Oils seem like second nature. Marie made sure that every person was able to grasp the information and be able to take it home and apply it. Every topic stimulated my mind! I have used some of the Emotional Release Technique every day since my return! How much more relative to our lives could it be when 80-90% of all disease is related to imbalanced emotions. Enough said, just sign up!  You will not be sorry and your life will be forever changed.”
~ Dr. Henrietta McElwee,DC Greenville, SC 

“I can't say enough to anyone who is starting a YLEO business about taking a CARE seminar. Marie Koepke was a very intuitive, knowledgeable, spiritual teacher and really knows and loves YLEO. I really got what essential oils are and do for you. Now I know what to do with all the oils I've been buying. Using all those oils throughout the workshops really showed you how safe and truly incredible the oils are.”
~ Christine L. Garcia, Occupational Therapist, Manhattan Beach, CA

"What a blessing to attend a CARE class that brings God into the healing process I had a limited knowledge of essential oils and knew nothing about their chemistry before this class. Marie Koepke expertly illuminated that dark world of chemistry for me. I am very excited about this training and how I can incorporate it into my practice as well as educate my clients to the healing in these essential oils. I encourage anyone who is interested in facilitating the healing of others to attend these classes. Thank you!"
~ Gale M. Veach, LMT, Lewisville, TX

"I've been to a LOT of seminars, and this is one of the finest. The facilitators were outstanding, warm, and in-tune spiritually. The breakout session in Emotional Release was the best I've ever been involved in even though quite short. A+++"
~ Margaret Blackburn, Houston, Texas
