Philosophy and Comments
It is my vision that the Institute of Integrative Aromatherapy will be a catalyst for the integration of Clinical Aromatherapy in health care for the 21st century.
I believe that the natural impulse for the body/mind/spirit is to reside in a state of homeostasis in an ever-changing environment.
I subscribe to a multi-disciplinary approach to achieving bio-psycho-social-spiritual balance and well being.
We believe in choice in health care. We know that the appropriate uses of essential oils foster balance, high level wellness, peace, and joy in our lives. We are committed to foster this experience in others as well, one student and one client at a time.
