Holistic Health Practitioner
This program teaches you how to integrate different natural healing (naturopathic) therapies into appropriate health programs. The emphasis will be learning dynamic health counseling skills and how to individualize a holistic health program appropriate for the client’s unique needs.
Training includes your self-directed selections from clinical nutrition; clinical herbology; exercise, relaxation, massage therapies and therapeutic bodywork; and aromatherapy. It also includes a wide and comprehensive list of optional and elective classes to choose from (see our catalog Electives) plus classes in focused activity with intention—such as emotional, psychological, soul and spirit or spiritual counseling, prayer meditation, and visualization to empower body-mind healing. Emphasis is on therapy and prevention as well as generating optimal health, vitality, and wellness. This course trains you in complementary medicine, alternative medicine, traditional medicine, and other natural healing approaches for self-help or self-healing with personal growth and to develop a successful professional career and practice. Deep, long term healing occurs when concerns are integratively and holistically addressed—physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. Please note, NHI is non-dogmatic and does not promote any one religious or spiritual path, and respects individual choice.
Note: Any class taken at NHI will qualify towards your HHP Certificate.
