There is so much excellent information in the CARE training.  I am very happy to have been introduced to these classes. I learned a lot. Definitely worth it. MV


I learned so much about the chemistry of oils and why they are so effective, healing every cell in the body and permanent healing is possible.  Our instructor Elisa was very easy to learn from and is extremely knowledgeable in emotional, spiritual, and physical healing.  What an awesome weekend.

CARE classes have helped me to better understand the body, wellness, and how, with God’s help we can heal ourselves. Learning the Vitaflex and Raindrop techniques along with the science and philosophy behind them has been life changing. I feel empowered to take charge of my own healing and to help others realize they can do the same. Elisa is a caring teacher who shows her love for CARE, Raindrop, Vitaflex, and healing as she teaches.  I love her passion and love for her students. KH
