Anatomy & Physiology, covering all the body systems, was always an integral part of the Full Professional Courses that were offered through West Coast Aromatherapy for over 22 years.

It has always been my belief that having a good understanding of anatomy and physiology is very helpful when it comes to understanding just how essential oils enter and are processed in the body.  It can also provide information on what we might expect them to be able to achieve.  Armed with this knowledge, along with our knowledge of the essential oils, carriers and our aromatics, we are in a much better place to design and create effective and appropriate blends, as well as choose the most appropriate methods of applications and protocols.  

Although I am no longer offering the Full Professional Courses, the Anatomy & Physiology Level 1 Course continues to remain available for those who do not have this training.

Level 1 has Seven Modules

  • An Introduction to the concepts of Anatomy and Physiology 
  • Levels of Matter
  • The Integumentary System (Skin)
  • The Skeletal System  
  • The Neurological System 
  • The Endocrine System. 

The rest of the body systems (the Cardiovascular System, the Lymphatic System, the Immune System, the Digestive System, the Respiratory System, the Urinary System and the Reproductive System) would be covered in a Level 2 course which is not yet available.
