An important component of Aromatherapy 201 is the Anatomy and Physiology portion and how the various essential oils work in the different body systems. Understanding this gives one the tools to more effectively create synergies/blends and strategies to effect change by using essential oils.
The student is trained in taking client histories, doing a client consultation 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.
As business is a part of interacting with clients we also cover business set up and marketing in this course.
This Workbook is divided up into 40 individual lessons. Each lesson highlights the material in the course book to be studied for that lesson. Then there are hands on experiential exercises for the student to complete. At the end of each chapter are some multiple choice questions and answers. These prepare one of the final exam.
Exam requirement is 100 multiple choice question exam, plus a Research Paper and Case Studies.
The Aromatherapy 201 Course builds on the knowledge already gained in the Aromatherapy 101 Course.
