History of Anointing - 2 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

As a Massage Therapist, I’ve been doing The Raindrop Technique as it was taught to me for 3-4 years.  I never really felt confident/competent in the technique/explanation when clients would ask about it.  I gave a generic and brief answer.  After this class, I fell much more knowledgeable in this technique and am excited to continue and get certified.  Dawn was an amazing instructor and was able to listen to questions and answer them completely.  ~Chrissy H., Butte, MT

Wonderful, wonderful class!  Loved every minute.  ~Rochelle J., Longview, WA

All of the classes are presented clearly and there is sufficient time for practice and to have questions answered.  I really feel equipped to begin using theses techniques immediately.  Penny keeps us on time but we feel free to ask questions, have discussions and work on techniques until confident.  ~Therese B., Duluth, MN

Awesome class.  I have learned so much.  It was more than I expected.  ~Patricia B., Butte, MT

I would recommend everyone take CARE if possible.  They really put things into perspective and the weekend was emotionally uplifting.
~Veronica Humphrey, JBER, AK

Wonderful experience with a group of various backgrounds.  Numerous ideas were shared and "tool boxes" were supplied with new "tools".
~Stacy Thetford, PT, Rogue River, OR

My CARE instructors were fun and very loving individuals.  I'd suggest a CARE Intensive to anyone and everyone who uses essential oils.  The knowledge I have obtained is truly priceless!
~Shawna Silbernagel, Osage, MN
