Aromatherapy Workshops

Aromatherapy for Healing Arts Practitioners

Live workshops resume in 2016 after all online courses & levels are available online.

The live series of courses offers sequential levels of training and is designed for massage therapists, nurses and other healing arts practitioners who wish to integrate aromatherapy into their professional practice. It is assumed that students enrolling in these courses have a foundation in basic anatomy and physiology.

The Aromatherapy School offers three levels of classes (I, II & III)

  • Classes are sequential, i.e., you must take Level I before Level II, etc.
  • Each class is offered at least once per year (several times most years).
  • All classes are taught by Dr. Joie Power, director of The Aromatherapy School.
  • Each level is presented as a two-day weekend workshop.
  • Classes are offered at Dr. Power’s farm, Wyldhaven, near Asheville North Carolina.
  • Students are presented with a Certificate of Completion for attending both days of the workshop.
  • Students may choose to take exam at end of workshop. Students who pass are given a Certificate of Achievement.
  • Classes are geared toward Healing Arts Practitioners (Nurses, Massage Therapists, MDs, etc.)
  • All students are expected to have a solid understanding of physiology and anatomy.
  • Levels I & II are open to non-practitioners (must have working knowledge of physiology and anatomy).
  • Students completing all Levels will receive a Certificate in Clinical Aromatherapy.
  • Optionally, students can choose to take the online/correspondence courses.
  • Students may mix and match between live and online/correspondence courses.
