Reviews

As an LMT that no longer practices massage full time, Melissa Woods’ lessons are an economical and easy approach to maintaining my Texas State License in Massage Therapy. These classes allowed me to be in the comfort of my own home and work at my own pace. I was ecstatic that I did not have to dedicate two entire Saturdays trapped in a classroom. Not only were the sessions very informative, but I saved a lot of money — and even moreso by taking two 6-credit courses to fulfill the 12 CEU criteria. This was my second time taking Melissa’s courses and I definitely recommend them to anyone who wants an inexpensive and time-saving option to meet the Texas LMT renewal requirements. -S.B., Dallas, TX

This has been a very nice class that I can do on my own time. Very informative with reliable information. I would highly recommend this class and give it a 10! -E.M., Arlington, TX

I had been thinking about trying an online class but I was unsure about the quality of an online course. My first attraction to your course was the reasonable fee. (I thought if the class was bad, I would not be out a lot of money.) Secondly, the website was well-organized and the student testimonial comments were reassuring. The advantage of an online course is that I thought I could break up the course work to fit my time schedule. However, once I started reading your aromatherapy materials, I became too interested to stop. Your course was presented in an enjoyable, well-organized, and easy to comprehend manner. You made even the explanation of the chemistry of essential oils and the various extraction processes fascinating to learn about.

Although the reasonable cost of the course was the impetus in trying your class, I would take future classes from you based solely on how well this course was presented. I have been a licensed massage therapist for over 15 years and have taken over 1,000 hours of classes. Your course was one of the best I have taken, and I would unequivocally recommend it to other massage therapists. I truly do not have any negative comments about this class. I feel like I received more than my money’s worth. The whole process was streamlined from purchasing the class to reading the materials to taking the quiz. Thank you again for this class and I look forward to taking your next course! -L.F., Dallas, TX

WOW! Really loved the class. Easy language for me to understand. Loved the price too! Thanks! -S.U., Houston, TX

This has been one of the best classes I have ever taken over the years! Your class is tied for first place! I loved all the information you gave and the depth of the information. You shared so much and gave books as reference to pursue on my own. I haven’t been this excited over a class in ages! Essential Oils have always been an intrigue and you explained it so that I could understand. You can tell that a lot of time, effort and thought went into the forming of this class! The price was well worth the class! Showing the oils, and the information on each oil spoken about. The list of blending oils – awesome! Packed with info! Usually, in taking a class, if one thing is learned it is a good class. This class, so much learned, can’t count how much!!! GREAT class! I will definitely recommend this class with as much enthusiasm as I can muster (and that’s a lot!) Thank you for the wonderful class! Loved it and intend to further pursue oils in my work and knowledge! – H.R., El Paso, TX

Your online course was fantastic. The e-book is probably the best course material I have encountered, and I will refer to this valuable reference time and again. Your descriptions and explanations are clear and very informative. Your course has given me the knowledge to provide a more individualized massage experience for my clients that better addresses their specific needs. Thank you for the wonderful information that I can put into practice now. -P.E., Spring, TX

It’s wonderful to have a printed guide to so many of the oils that are useful. I can both reference the oils quickly and copy the info from the pages that go into more detail about a specific oil, to give to potential clients. It was a blessing to find all 12 hours, online, inexpensive and in a subject ever so close to my heart. It was interesting, easy to read, and I learned new info. The chapter reviews at the end of the first several chapters are a great idea – I would read them before reading the chapter, then again after. Having quick and easy access to you was quite impressive. It was hard to believe you answered my phone call right away and got the certificate to me so quickly. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you. This was exactly what i needed/wanted in 12 CEU’s. -C.C.R., San Antonio, TX

I, personally, was most stimulated by the information presented about how the oils worked: their chemical constituents and whatnot. I found it fascinating that the oils can be found in every part of the body in only 21 minutes. What I liked least, I suppose, was reading through the different oils and their effects. I sometimes felt like I was reading the same thing over and over. However, I don’t really see how it could have been done any better, especially when you are trying to provide so much information into a limited amount of time and space. I believe this will be excellent reference material as I grow in my new career/passion. Overall, I found your class to be very enlightening and am looking forward to applying the knowledge I have gained to my practice. -C.B., McKinney, TX

LIKED THE MOST: Your class was intelligently clear and concise, as well as an easy-read. You emphasized important information by reintroducing valued topics repeatedly. Step-by-step historical and informational researched topics on the subject were introduced in a logical, natural approach. Each new chapter laid the foundation to further re-emphasize what had previously been taught and lead the reader to understand why this methodology could prove to be great for the massage therapist and his/her clients. Your class has sparked some interest in me to seek more information on the subject and possibly use the essential oils. LIKED THE LEAST: I have a hard time coming up with a criticism. The course was easier than I had expected. Your writing skills made the course easy for me as a slow reader to absorb the materials. Thanks! -K.F., San Antonio, TX

I had no idea that in addition to all of the inherent properties of essential oils and blends that there are VERY specific applications of these oils depending on the type of massage (hot stone, thai, reiki, etc). Also, you had just the right amount of pictures and charts to illustrate your points and present the oils without littering the course with too many graphics that would distract or take away from the core lessons.

I LOVED LOVED LOVED the history section, too often in massage therapy classes (I’m talking about the live classes!) I feel like I’m getting folk knowledge and don’t always get the root sources of WHERE did this information come from or WHY we know or do certain things. I do believe some of massage is intuitive but much of the education is built on the research and practices of doctors, other therapists, scientists, and ancient civilizations. Having the history of an aspect of massage gives me confidence in utilizing the knowledge that I have committed to memory and chosen to incorporate into my own work. Thank you for this incredible course that I feel all massage therapists should invest in as it not only adds to our library of knowledge but also bolsters the offerings of our business and provides another dimension of client care that is often missed, to their loss! -C.U., Waco, TX

Thank you so much! I really enjoyed this information. You were very informative in all aspects. I always wanted to know about Aromatherapy and I’m so glad that I was able to do it via your online class. I didn’t realize essential oils could have such an effect on the body. But the information that you have passed on let me know without a doubt what I will be doing for my clients’ mind, body and spirit! It’s AWESOME!!!

Thank you for all your hard work in putting this syllabus together into an easy to read and understandable book, and to top it off with illustrations. Some of my favorite information that I have obtained from this e-book is what to look for in a pure essential oil, what to beware of, and which oils do what. You showed me so many!! I feel like I am on my way now to a great successful aromatherapy/massage session. Best of luck to you!! And thank you soooo much!! -L.S., Lewisville, TX

I really liked how you related each oil to its use with massage. The information given was to the point and didn’t give me information overload. It did however, give me just enough to want to do more reading and study about the subject so I can incorporate it into my massage practice. It was also nice to learn that I already have most of the top 10 single oils. Now I need to look into getting some of these blends which sound wonderful. You have given me a lot of information that I will be able to use not only in my chair massage practice and with hospice, but also in my everyday life. Great class! -P.C., Aledo, TX

I enjoyed learning about the essential oils, I have several friends that use the oils so am familiar with that but never knew much about the oils themselves. I found your course very informative and a welcome relief being able to do it online as opposed to taking time away for a class. I received a postcard for your course in the mail and was attracted by the reasonable price, I appreciated that! -C.P., Kingwood, TX

I thoroughly loved this class. It was nice having the refresher course on oils and their importance. I worked for a chiropractor for a couple years and knew most of the oils and what was used for different ailments, but this was great to read in specifics treatments and origins of essential oils. I found this website on a google search for CEU online and reviewed it; henceforth found it to be the most beneficial course. This was cost effective, time effective and suffice the Texas State Board requirements. I would like to see you do more topics for the Texas State Board. It was the right length, cost and being able to study and learn at home was so convenient. I have practiced for 22 years and have been licensed for 20 of those, and this is by far the most effective and proficient I have found. Thank you for the time you put into this class. -T.H., Nacogdoches, TX

I really just enjoyed the educational aspects of the different oils and benefits of each. I know there has to be a better way than all of these drugs that have not always been around. I plan on using some for myself, smile. I also like the fact that you gave practical examples/applications and recommendations for massages. Of course I like the ability to take the class on my own time and you can’t beat the price. You’re very responsive which is always a plus. -J.T., Allen, TX

Being as this is my first real introduction into using an aromatherapeutic approach to massage, I found it to be extremely informative and entertaining as well. I felt that the history presented for the use and making of essential oils quite educational for a person who is trying to find a fresh approach to what they can bring to their massage therapy practice. The section that addressed the used of essential oils in other therapies, such as Reiki, Thai Massage, etc., was a very nice touch for those who practice more than one therapy.

I also thank you for the list of oils you gave in Appendix A that can be used for specific parts of the body, as well as organ systems, and emotional diseases. The book reference guide in Appendix D will be most helpful in researching further the use of essential oils in massage therapy practice. I also thank you for the reference of other therapists listed in Appendix E, as getting in touch with others is not only a helpful networking path, but also a wonderful way to learn from others and perhaps improve how I approach my massage technique, sessions, clients, and my view of the world. Overall, it was a wonderfully informative class, and I would recommend it to anyone. -R.S., Alice, TX

Since I have had an interest in aromatherapy for some time, I thought your course would be ideal. I loved the convenience of being able to take the course at anytime and unlike other on line courses, there is no wait time to receive learning materials. Which is great with my schedule. Thank you! -S.G., Fort Worth, TX

What I liked best about your class was that it was practical, informative and easy to complete from home. -S.E., Bedford, TX

I didn’t know that essential oils could be used for so many things! I was concerned that the class would be boring, especially a 12 CE class! But your class was very interesting and not boring. I’m so excited – I want to start using essential oils and like you said, I want to order them all! It was really an informative class and I learned a lot of information from this useful class. Thanks! -L.E., San Benito, TX

I really enjoyed the essential oil class and honestly got more out of it than I thought. I really feel like these oils can benefit my clients, without them really understanding how the whole process works. I love that the class was so convenient. I am a working mom and it really helped to be able to sit down at the computer and take the class while the baby was sleeping. Really enjoyed the class! -C.C.M., Grand Prairie, TX

Your class was super! I took the 12 CE Class and although there was A LOT of info, it really helped me to realize I need to use these oils on my clients. Doing self-study at home was the BEST – no driving to class somewhere and blowing a whole day when I could be doing massages and making money! Also, the price was so inexpensive compared to taking an in-person class! -R.A., Rio Grande Valley

I appreciate your class because it will help me improve my business and I will take care, in a better way, of my clients. It was very interesting. -G.F., Garland, Texas

I really enjoyed the class and found all the information very useful in my work with all of my clients. A new approach to therapy that helps to balance the whole body. -V.M., San Antonio, TX

This online class was a wonderful experience for me. It was my first time to take an online class and I really enjoyed it. It was complete and the information was easy to understand. -A.M., Arlington, TX

Everything was easy to read. A lot of information, but the ending chapter reviews were very helpful. I liked the breakdown of the individual essential oils use, value and precautions. It will be nice to have this reference to be able to refer to in the future. Simple and clear information and easy to absorb. -T.G., Bacliff, TX

I enjoyed many levels of this class. Super convenient to me and my time frame. Your pricing was also very competitive. I was also happy to see the Bible Scripture on the essential oils, as I have come across some on my own. -S.R., Belton, TX

It was very interesting to find out about the extra things essential oils are capable of. I enjoyed learning how to shop for the oils. -H.A., Hewitt, TX

Just finished the chronic illness class – very informative. As an RN & LMT, I often see courses that give incomplete or down right bad information. This class was just excellent and conforms to the nursing thought on massage and complimentary treatment especially for cancer patients. I have worked with many cancer patients and found your info right on. Especially happy to see you recommend obtaining a doctor’s order first. I’ve found most oncologists in the San Antonio area feel massage is beneficial for their patients, but they want to be notified by the therapist before care is begun and most will even sign an order for you and fax it back. Thanks again! -S.V., San Antonio, TX
