Essential Oils Certification

Alaska Institute of Oriental Medicine, Acupuncture & Massage Therapy

Online Learning ⋅ Essential Oil Certification Course

Study at our school in Alaska from anywhere in the world! Our online learning program uses beautiful workbooks and training videos. Becoming certified in Essential Oils can make the difference between a hobby and a Healing Art. If you love essential oils, why not learn how to really use them and get the most out of these awesome little bottles?!

No matter what brand of oils you prefer, when you are a Certified Aromatherapist through Alaska Institute of Oriental Medicine, Acupuncture & Massage Therapy, it means that you have done a lot more than just read about them in a book or learned a few things at a party. Our certification requires actual usage of research and an abundant variety of techniques. It means you are knowledgeable, safe, effective, and confident in proper Essential Oil use.

The certification course consists of 12 individual workshops (listed below), each with homework. Jump in and start at any time to begin giving substance and creativity with a flair to your use of Essential Oils.

Who these essential oil courses ARE for:

  • You love natural methods of healing and are fascinated by Chinese Medicine, the Five Elements, and Energy Work.
  • You are not getting enough use out of your essential oils—or the type of therapeutic use that you really want.
  • You put effort, enthusiasm, and curiosity into what you learn and appreciate doing the work needed to actually be good at something. (Learning is FUN!)
  • You have an open mind and are excited to explore incredibly cool insights and creative thoughts that you discover along the way, especially when they take you outside the box.

Who these essential oil courses are NOT for:

  • You really prefer the chemistry and technical side of essential oils. (Yes, that’s important but not my focus.)
  • You know you won’t do any of the homework.
  • Your main interest is economically driven as opposed to learning knowledge and skills that benefit others.
  • You only read headlines and skip the actual article. My info is packed with meaty details, so if you prefer short-and-sweet surface info, this is not it.

With over 20 years of experience in Oriental medicine, Massage Therapy, Medical QiGong Energy Healing, and related modalities, it is my purpose to use these gifts to help create a healing experience in the unique way that each individual needs.

Everything I do is based on the energetics of Oriental medicine and the Five Element philosophy. Most importantly I work with what you most connect with as I strongly believe that people are naturally drawn to therapies that will benefit them – something in us Knows. I also offer advice, based on my professional experience, as to what I feel will be the most efficient and effective path to your goal.

With respect and compassion, I use a combination of therapies and tools to address physical, emotional, and spiritual issues. Our bodies are designed to heal so let’s create the circumstances to allow the healing to happen.
