What is the difference between CARE Intensive and Basic In order to move towards certification (CRTS or CCI), or even just to be proficient with your technique, you need to attend 5 courses offered by CARE as your first foundational qualification. The 5-required courses are: Raindrop Technique, Vitaflex, Emotional Release, Chemistry of Essential Oils, History of Anointing and Laying on of Hands. CARE Intensive is a 25-hours intensive program usually taught over a 3-days period, which would include all 5 courses. CARE Basic is a 14-hours program that covers 3 of the 5 courses (Vitaflex, Raindrop Technique and History of Anointing and Laying on of Hands. Participants would wish to move towards Return Demo, would need to attend Chemistry (6 hours) and Emotional Release (5 hours). Both of these classes are usually offered at another time, on one evening and a full day (total of 11 hours). Upon completion of all 5 courses, participants completing the training will: ~ Understand the Fundamentals of Aromatherapy ~ Understand the Science and Chemistry of Essential Oils ~ Learn to Apply Useful Skills in Vitaflex ~ Learn to do Raindrop Technique ~ Learn how Essential Oils Can be Used for Emotional Releasing CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT The Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education (CARE) is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a Continuing Education Approved Provider. This Seminar is worth 25 CE-hrs of credit through NCBTMB. The 25 Hours of Credit for this seminar are the first step toward becoming a Certified Raindrop Technique Specialist (CRTS) through the Natural Therapies Certification Board (NTCB). Completing this seminar is also the first and basic set of requirements toward becoming a Certified CARE Instructor (CCI), should you wish to pursue a teaching career with CARE. RAINDROP TECHNIQUE 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. APPLIED VITAFLEX 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. HISTORY OF ANOINTING WITH OILS & LAYING ON OF HANDS 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. EMOTIONAL RELEASE 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 the whole body. Class Participants will acquire an understanding of how essential oils may facilitate clearing of emotional patterns through lecture, demonstration, and a "personal" session. CHEMISTRY OF ESSENTIAL OILS To you, who 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.
