Carol Scheidel, Director, has some exciting new ideas on the horizon for R.J. Buckle Associates, LLC! 


"The 'M' Technique is fantastic for relaxation - simple, gentle, safe and effective. I've tried it myself."

—Dr. Oz, New York Presbyterian/Columbia Medical Center, New York

"This outstanding science based course has resulted in the successful integration of a clinical aromatherapy program into our hospital. We have over 20 trained clinical staff."

—Carol Scheidel, RN, BSN, Ethics Manager (retired), Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital, Fort Worth, TX

"The importance of aromatherapy and/or touch in healing needs to be told as many ways as possible. Years ago a librarian Kathy and I (a plain ICU nurse) joined forces to encourage the managers of our hospital to start a Jane Buckle Class. That class changed my life. You are an inspiration. Thank you."

—Bev Bivens BSN. Banner Desert Hospital, Mesa, AZ.

"This course enabled me to change our patient care into something much more holistic. For example, now we use palma rosa 1 gtt in 500 cc water for mouth care all the time. The patients love the way it breaks up the mucus dried to their tongues, and the nurses love the way we can do something for our patients that is kinder than conventional mouth care, is effective and smells so nice. Thank you for a fantastic course. It has changed the way I do things."

—Betty Surette BSN. St Clares, Hospital, Dover, NJ.
