This course took shorter than the standard time because I've been using essential oils and reading books on the subject since 1998. Overall a solid course for massage professionals and students.

This course was very helpful to me, and the course materials were excellent. I gained new knowledge of the Five Elements which clarified some confusion and allowed me to grasp new insights and learn new concepts.
