What Makes Natural Option’s 200 Hour Certification Seminar Special and Unique?
We do a number of different things with our certification seminar that others don’t.
We cover 57 essential oils in depth. What they do and how to use them to achieve the desired outcome. We also cover the required (by NAHA) chemistry and history of aromatherapy. But this is where the similarities end. We also discuss and breakdown a number of diseases and conditions such as Arthritis, Parkinson’s Disease, MS, Dysmenorrheal, Depression, etc. We look at the different facets of the disease, what traditional medicine does to treat it, the advantages and disadvantages of that, then look at what aromatherapy can do. We also break into seven different lab sessions. In each lab you are required to formulate two specific blends for two specific issues. This gets the attendee into hands-on formulating and blending. The individual gets into the mind set of using essential oils for their physiochemical properties instead of whether they like the scent or not. Each person has the opportunity to make creams (with 2 different base creams), body oils (with 2 different carrier oils), inhalers, roll-ons, diffusing blends, misting blends, bath salt, natural rug deodorizer, and more.
Attendees are also required to do ten case studies on their own at the end of the class. We have a specific format that we suggest you follow. The purpose is to collect these, make them available to everyone who has taken our certification program. This serves several needs. First, everyone will have a large collection of studies with specifics on the blend used, how it was used, how often it was used, and the results. This will give you a large number of proven blends and applications for you to use with your clients. Then if you use the same blend, the same way we can keep that on file. When we get enough case studies on the same issue with similar results, that then becomes the basis for a case trial.
Attendees need to take a 105 hour online course in Anatomy and Physiology. The course is taught by a licensed massage therapist who has taught the class at a massage school. NAHA is now requiring a minimal amount of A&P. Our feeling is that if you’re going to learn about how the body works, learn it well. Of course doctors, nurses, therapists, etc. can waive out of this requirement although it is also a great refresher course. And since it is included in the cost of the class you are welcome to the information.
We also provide you with business support. What do you want to do with the knowledge you acquire from the seminar? Do you want to teach the general public? Do you want to teach massage therapists or reflexologists, etc? Do you want to work with hospice or skilled nursing facilities? We will help you to get to where you want to go. Because of this, we keep our class sizes small, usually 3-10 people. This way we can give you the individual attention you need and deserve.
We provide all of your essential oils and all of the carriers and containers you will need to complete your lab sessions (Value of $816.50). Once you’ve paid your deposit ($400) you have the ability to purchase at 50% off of retail on all of our regular products ongoing. This does not include items we do not make such as Detox Machines, Diffusers, etc. although we do offer some discounts on these items as well.
It is for these reasons and more that we feel our Aromatherapy Certification Seminars stand out in helping you to help others.
