HLIL offers a comprehensive selection of courses developed to further your training in holistic modalities.
Our 500 hour Certified Holistic Health Practitioner program includes the following Holistic Modalities;
We discover the gifts herbs and botanicals give us through their medicinal, culinary and cosmetic properties. In class, we recognize an herb as being any botanical whose roots, leaves, bark, flowers, fruits, and stems contribute to our health and well-being.
Iridology is the study of the patterns and markings in the iris of the eye. These patterns and markings correlate with specific health and nutritional challenges and strengths and weaknesses in the body. Iridology does not attempt to diagnose any specific disease condition, but rather help us understand our basic temperament so we can know how to balance our nutrition and lifestyle to obtain greater physical, mental and emotional fitness.
This course focuses on the ancient school of “Ayurveda.” This system’s personalized approach to the prevention and treatment of disease is unique, focusing on the individual and how a particular illness uniquely manifests in that individual. At the heart of this approach is the concept of Prakuti, an individual’s unique constitution of being, which is fixed for the duration of one’s life. This Prakuti is a combination of three doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha, the three basic principle energies of the body. The cause of disease in the body is viewed in Ayurvedic Medicine as a lack of cellular function due to an excess or deficiency of these three energies. In order for us to balance our mind, body and consciousness, we need to understand how Vata, Pitta and Kapha work together.
Beginning Yoga offers training in ancient gentle postures for creating balance in the body through strength and flexibility. This class will enable the practitioner to provide beginning yoga posture suggestions and examples to their massage clients for increased mobility.
Aromatherapy is the therapeutic application of essential oils, which are the key ingredients distilled from a plant’s seeds, bark, roots, etc. Essential Oils are at the heart of aromatherapy and the root of our studies.
Homeopathy is a gentle philosophy that sees disease as an energy imbalance, a disturbance in the bodies “vital force.” Its techniques are based on the premise that the body is self-healing and that symptoms are the expression of the body trying to restore balance. Homeopathy does not cover up or destroy disease but stimulates the body’s own healing action.
Flower Essences are the “life-forces” derived from the plants via a water-infused matrix which address emotional issues and mind/body health.
Nutri-Escience is “the Science of Essential Nutrition.” In this class we explore the unseen influences in our diet and environment that may be adversely influencing our health. Using natural remedies, lifestyle modifications, and supplementation, we strive to compensate for adverse influences and restore balance and optimum wellness.
EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique
Taught throughout the world for over 40 years, EFT helps to alleviate stress and fear-based phobias that are instigated through feelings, emotions, and memories of traumatic events. By tapping on strategic points in the acupuncture meridian system, stored traumatic feelings and emotions can be released. This technique is useful for symptoms of PTSD, smoking, and stress.
