Aromatica proudly offers Canada’s most comprehensive program of study in the Ancient Healing Arts & Natural Medicine.
It is this school’s mission to keep the Ancient Healing Arts alive, well and thriving.
Aromatica believes that these ancient secrets still have a lot to offer and that this knowledge can still guide us to good health, as we navigate time and space in a fast-paced, stress-inducing, modern lifestyle.
Aromatica is the first – and only – school in Canada to offer a certified diploma in Myomassology, the form of massage that begins where Swedish massage ends.
Myomassology is known as the ‘Holistic Version’ of Massage Therapy.
Students receive in-depth training in massage plus a plethora of unique bodywork modalities, making them competitive candidates for employment in the burgeoning health prevention, massage, spa and alternative treatment field.
Our courses and workshops are taught by instructors on the cutting edge of alternative health. We set high standards. Aromatica graduates are always in demand for their excellent grounding in theory and proficiency in technique.
All of our professional training programs receive national and international accreditation. Whether you’re looking for a career change and wish to take a 6 month massage training program on site with us (accommodations provided), or you are an experienced massage practitioner wishing to expand your hands-on skill set, or you are a novice looking for an interest weekend workshop … please accept our invitation to tour this web site, register for trainings on-line, schedule massage sessions or arrange a personal tour.

As a mother of 3 amazing kids and partner to the most giving and kind man, I felt I owed these 4 more than I was able to give them at the end of each day. Working in the hustle and bustle of the corporate world, with my home life, sports and chores I had lost myself. I needed to get reconnected, find the right balance … but how I was going to be able to do this? Then, as if answering my question, I was gifted a Reiki session from a friend. Shortly after, as I lay in that Reiki treatment room feeling lighter and more in tune with my body than I had ever felt before, I knew in that one single moment that I was changed forever. I am so grateful for that gift!

Learning and having fun is the ‘AROMATICA’ way!
A wise old teacher once said “I consider a day’s teaching wasted if we do not all have one hearty laugh!”.
When people laugh they cease to be young or old, master or pupil, jailer or prisoner – they simply become a group of human beings happily enjoying an existence together.
Students at Aromatica understand this particular piece of wisdom very well as may be witnessed in this photograph of Cottam with a group of his Myomassology students! Being silly and having fun is a healthy diversion.
So, Aromatica is here for you! If you are looking for a new career we offer you our affordable version of Massage Therapy training called Myomassology.
