Practice-Based Internship

Recommended

It is highly recommended that therapists complete an accredited class in an energy medicine modality during Phase 1, and an aromatherapy class reviewing the use of essential oils for pain, anxiety, nausea, fatigue, and gastrointestinal disorders for medically compromised individuals during Phase 2. These classes are a requirement for the ICM Teacher Training program.

 

Although GTD offers a Reiki class and an Aromatherapy in Health Care class it is not required that therapists complete these classes with GTD and you are welcome to complete them elsewhere.
