This stand alone Anatomy and Physiology Level 1 course was especially designed for anyone whose aromatherapy course did not include any Anatomy and Physiology.

The Full Professional Aromatherapy Course (Aromatherapy 101 and Aromatherapy 201) taught through the West Coast Institute of Aromatherapy covers all the Anatomy &  Physiology (Level 1 and Level 2) in the Aromatherapy 201 course.

Because not everyone  who takes Aromatherapy 101 wishes to continue on to  Aromatherapy 201, offering this Anatomy & Physiology Level 1 course as a stand alone course meets the needs of many of our graduates.
