- Anatomy and Physiology. An important component of Aromatherapy 201 is the Anatomy and Physiology. Understanding how essential oils are taken up into the body and then affect the different body systems is the first step. Knowledge of different pathologies is fundamental in helping you make the right choices. Working from this solid knowledge base it is so much easier to create effective synergies and strategies.
- Consultations: The student is trained in taking client histories, doing client consultations and keeping client records. It is always important to be able to identify and assess the concerns before one can create the best strategy that fits both the client and their lifestyle, then be able to reassess and tweak if necessary.
- Business: As business is a part of interacting with clients, we also cover business set up and marketing in this course.
- Research: How to review Research Papers, as well as tips on how to do your own research, and how to use research studies to justify any claims you want to make.
The Workbook is divided up into 40 individual lessons and each lesson will guide the student on what to read and which essential oil to experience. Then they will be guided on how to complete the hands-on exercises and assignments. Finally, they are able to review what has been learned by working through the questions and answers at the end of each lesson. This also prepares them for the final exam.
Students will work through the course material at their own pace however, our experience has shown that having a timeline does help to keep students motivated and on track and the Timeline for Aromatherapy 201 is 18 months. Even while working at your own pace, provided the material is worked at consistently, it is certainly possible to complete the coursework and exam requirements in much less time and many students do.
The Exam is a closed book 100 multiple choice question exam written in front of a Proctor. In addition, there are also the additional exam requirements of a Research Paper and Case Studies with 30 unique blends.
A Certificate recognizing the graduate as a Clinical Aromatherapist is issued on successful completion.
