Raindrop Technique 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. 
Vitaflex is an ancient Tibetan Reflex Technique that was brought to the USA by Stanley Burroughs in the late 1920's. Class participants will learn 13 basic Vitaflex technique as described in Healing for the Age of Enlightenment by Stanley Burroughs. This technique is one of the many ways essential oils can be applied to the body and is the primary technique used in the Raindrop Technique.
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. Based on the book, Healing Oils of the Bible by Dr. David Stewart.
Upon Completion 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, understand the basis for Vitaflex, and what benefits may be expected from their applications.
Upon Completion of the Raindrop Technique Class, 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.

Kathryn Hawpe CCI, YLEO Independent Distributor
Was introduced to Young Living Essential Oils and the Vitaflex and Raindrop techniques as an answer to health issues she had struggled with for years. She has been a member of Young Living since then and practicing Vita-flex and Raindrop Technique with CARE since 2013. After spending a few semesters at UCCS studying Psychology and Women’s and Ethnic Studies (WEST), she realized her true passion was teaching and facilitating with these potent and powerful oils and hands-on techniques for wellness that reach all facets of our beings. Her heartfelt intention is to inspire and empower others to take command of the lives and health of themselves and their families, and to enjoy wellness, purpose and abundance. Kathryn believes the lives of others can be changed, as hers was, and that there is no more a critical time than now to share and spread this sacred knowledge of healing that we all possess. 
As well as instructing classes and facilitating, she is pursuing certifications in the Chemistry of essential oils, Emotional Release, Aromatherapy coaching and more.  
 “I have been exposed a lot educationally and experientially, but this CARE Seminar was one of the most comprehensive training programs I have ever come across. I hope this information can reach the masses as it is absolutely life transforming. The CARE Instructors are gifted and talented presenters.”
~Darlene S. Plyler RN, LMT, Pawleys Island, South Carolina
 "At last it all makes sense! This program is the missing link between chemistry, spirituality, and healing. It brings science and spirituality together in the warmest way. If anyone has ever wondered how to make sense of the big picture, and where the oils fit in- Please do this training and help spread the word!”
~ Coral Waters, Coolum, Queensland, Australia
"This is the best program of this kind I have attended. I greatly appreciate CARE's commitment to quality & consistency, which provides a greater sense of professionalism. A warm & supportive atmosphere was always present as well. Thank you for your great work."  Sandra Parkins, Arvada, CO
“This is the greatest workshop I have ever been to. I was afraid about the chemistry class, but now I know I can learn science as well as anybody else.”
~ Lucie Leblanc, Cold Lake, Alberta, Canada
“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, I would recommend this program to every nurse!”
