What Some People Say About This C.A.R.E Training:


Thank you Carol, for your pleasant attitude as a facilitator, which sets the stage for comfort. During the teaching and demonstration you displayed such great skills in the Raindrop Technique. Such as perfecting the technique, and as we questioned the purpose of some of the technique-you supplied answers. Even at times we felt a little frustrated not performing our best, as an instructor you kept your calm, encouraged, and assisted so each meet their best performance. Thanks for making me feel comfortable and relaxed through my learning experience. I believe this is your calling to continue as a facilitator and teach because of your great love and desire you have for people and the Raindrop Technique. Darlene Rosario, CBT


I would highly recommend this program to anyone for personal growth and health. The CARE program

is the most valuable continuing education for massage therapists I have had.

Maggie Cooper, Johnson City, TN


The CARE Intensive is life changing! I recommend to all health care professionals!

DeSheila Hughes Jackson, MS


The CARE program is a step above what I have learned before. It is much more in-depth in the

teaching, training and techniques. It is taught with credibility of the art versus someone working that

does not have proper knowledge/technique. Just like the YL oils we use – CARE is not diluted…it is

100% pure.

Tonya Glaser, Simpsonville, SC


Carol was an excellent teacher, and very relate-able to the class. She made me feel comfortable in branching out into new areas of learning.

Dawm Wargo, Lynchburg, VA


As a medical doctor I would suggest very highly that all medical practitioners, medical

students, and residents should be exposed to programs like this.

Andrew Sears, M.D., Saginaw, Michigan


This CARE program is Life Changing! Mrs Carol Bechtel is so knowledgeable and very warm with her presentation. This experience has set a new level in my spirit as well as my education.
