Course description

Remember the significant and even transformative shifts that you experienced with the first level of Aroma Acupoint Therapy? And the good treatment results you may be continuing to see in your practice? This is actually just a small part of the potentials that this unique form of treatment holds. If you are serious about increasing your understanding of how essential oils modulate Qi and Shen, and are ready to discover new treatment potentials, then this advanced level of AAT therapy is right for you.
Level 2 is a continuation and deepening of the principles and practice of Aroma Acupoint Therapy presented in Level 1. It will again consist of both lecture and hands-on practice of the new concepts and actual treatment sequences presented. This seminar is designed to deepen your understanding of how AAT works and the importance of inner development for enhanced practice. Specifically, it aims to increase your treatment repertoire using this unique modality; to increase your understanding of the essential oils used in practice; and to enhance your ability to differentiate patients‘ physical and emotional symptoms according to the Six Diagnostic Conditions.

This advanced workshop will …

  • Deepen your knowledge of how the various fragrance energies of oils affect the Shen
  • Explore the mental and emotional symptoms created by the pathological conditions of tension, weakness, heat, cold, dryness and damp.
  • Promote a more intimate relationship with the essential oils in treatment to unlock their true potential
  • Discuss the presentation and treatment with essential oils of complex conditions, such as chronic Tense-Weak, Heat-Tense-Damp, Weak-Cold-Dry, etc. in terms of both Qi and Shen dysfunctions.
  • Explore the inner or spirit nature of select essential oils to facilitate integral healing
  • Discuss modifying or combining treatment sequences in order to tailor the treatment to your patient’s specific needs
  • Look at practical concepts and techniques of personal inner development for enhanced and long-lasting treatment results, such as developing attention and loving presence
  • Dismantle complex, challenging case histories through group discussions/li>

„The information in AAT Level 2 was well organized, thoughtfully delivered and in a format that can be easily implemented. Level 2 expanded the depth and breadth of Level 1 while increasing confidence in the technique. Peter’s decades of experience is invaluable.“
– Jill Kelly LAc, MAc, DiplAc
„I appreciated learning more specifics on the essential oils in Level 2, especially comparing their use on the Qi versus the Shen level. I am so glad you have dedicated your life to this work and for all you give us at these workshops.“
– Susan Fendel LAc
„AAT Level 2 truly enabled growth from Level I. I especially appreciated the exposure to the practice of choosing particular essential oils on points for various complex conditions.“
– Deborah Lorentz LAc
„The seminar opened up an entirely new understanding of the energy of not only the acupuncture points that were utilized but also the depth at which we can access their functions when combining them with the energy of essential oils.“
– Muin Daly LAc
„This seminar was an amazing experience. The material, information and techniques learnt were all phenomenal. I have a smile on my face and warmth in my heart, as well as enthusiasm in sharing this with my clients. Thank you so much, I am grateful.“
