Aromatherapy Class Notes:

  • Aromatherapy I, II and III do not need to be taken sequentially, you may  take classes in any order. However, Aromatherapy I, II and III must be taken before advancing to Aromatherapy III A or Aromatherapy IV.
  • The classes in the Aromatherapy Program are open to the public. However, it is not legal to practice Aromatherapy without being a certified massage therapist or having a license to touch. 
  • All classes are continuing education units for massage therapists.
  • Essential oil prices may fluctuate based on current market prices.
  • Memories and emotions might surface during the course of any Aromatherapy class. This is, like in massage or any other healing practice, part of the session and the training.

NOTE:  To practice Polarity Therapy, any  form of Energy Healing, Reflexology or Aromatherapy you will need a license to touch.  We suggest that you take our MT300 Massage Therapy Program.  MT300 plus an additional 200 hours of electives will allow you to apply to the CAMTC for State Certification which is a license to touch.  Most students that have done this have fallen in love with Swedish massage and have another avenue of helping their clients.
