  • Is this a self paced course?

    No, the course is designed so students start and finish together receiving weekly instruction ensuring no one gets left behind. I find this type of instruction more engaging, as it provides students the opportunity to collaborate with fellow classmates with community support and accountability.

  • Is there a payment plan?

    Yes, 3, 5 or 9 month payment plans are available. Please email maria@helianthusholisticarts.com to request information.

  • What does the course include?

    The course includes weekly LIVE course instruction via Zoom, a 475+ page manual, one on one mentoring and exam fees.

  • Why are essential oils not included with the program?

    A lot of students who apply for the course already have a selection of essential oils. If a student wishes to purchase a starter kit, a couple of options are available (at an additional cost).

  • How long is the course?

    The course will run from January 18, 2022 until October 18, 2022 (there are no classes in August). Theory classes will be Tuesday evenings and one half Saturday per month will be dedicated to blending products.

Maria Fiordalisi

Hi, I’m Maria! I have been certified as a wellness practitioner since 2014. I started with reflexology and I quickly fell in love with it. It has lead me to continue my journey in alternative holistic healing therapies. Today, I am proud to say that I provide an array of alternative holistic therapies including Reflexology for the feet, hands and face, Reiki, Aromatherapy Massage, Crystal Therapy, Indian Head Massage, Holistic Health & Wellness Coaching. When not working with clients, you can find me creating custom aromatherapy face and body products, attuning students to Reiki or teaching health and wellness workshops. I am honoured for the opportunity to continue my growth and teaching this certification program.
