Are you a natural health professional who is looking to boost your clinical skills? When you meet with clients, do you struggle to ensure that you are fully meeting their needs while also staying within an herbalist or aromatherapist’s scope of practice and wellness philosophy? Do you wonder how to both convey your expertise while also avoiding the legal definition of the practice of medicine?

Integrative health practice can be intimidating and overwhelming, even for the most advanced student and professional. Navigating the complex requirements of a health practice while also staying within your scope as a health coach, herbalist, or aromatherapist quickly takes the joy out of your work.

The 6 Pillar Method of health counseling was developed by faculty here at the FSIHS to simplify this process. This method provides an evidence based framework that organizes the theoretical concepts used in integrative health practice into a model that can be followed effortlessly. With this approach, you are free to focus on the part of this field that matters most: supporting your client.

This accelerated course provides a comprehensive education for implementing the 6 Pillar Method into your integrative health practice in only 3 short weeks. Each of the three weeks are packed with education and information about both the 6 Pillars and the theoretical tools used to produce these pillars. You will learn how to integrate health behavior theories, motivational interviewing, reflective listening, SMART goals and objectives, the client-centered triad, and other integrative health tools into a practical and simple framework.


This 3-week course is a must for anyone connected to the integrative health field. Educators will learn how to master a tool that boosts their students’ confidence and success. Students will learn how to improve their emerging new practice, and professionals will learn how to increase client satisfaction and boost success rates.
