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 not only alive and well … but thriving!
Aromatica believes that these secrets still offer great value for today’s lifestyles and that ancient knowledge can guide us safely through health – even as we navigate through time and space in a fast-paced, often stressful, modern world.
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, and 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 a massage session on-line or arrange a personal visit with us for a tour at one of our 4 locations in Ontario.

Learning and having fun at the same time is the Aromatica way!
A very wise old teacher once said “I consider a day’s teaching wasted if we do not all have one hearty laugh.” This means that when people laugh together they cease to be young or old, master or pupil, jailer or prisoner. They become a single group of human beings, happily enjoying their existence together.
Instructors and students at Aromatica understand this particular piece of wisdom as can be witnessed in the photo above!
