To all applicants: The Healing Oasis Wellness Center makes every attempt to offer the programs as announced.

Regarding Applications:

Prospective students are directed to the links for each individual program so that they can read and understand the individual catalog and application form.  Please understand that when you send an application with a deposit, a seat is reserved for you (and only you) and once the MAXIMUM number of students allowed is reached the registration is CLOSED to any further applicants. We would appreciate and encourage immediate notification if the prospective student has decided to transfer to the next class or if personal issues have arisen that would prevent them from attending. By notifying the school ASAP, you would be allowing the student on the current waiting list to have ample time to arrange their schedule and attend the program.  Please note that if you are requesting a transfer to the next class, you must recheck the catalog as prices might change and you would then be responsible for the updated tuition price.

Speakers / Instructors

The Healing Oasis Wellness Center understands the importance of having a good instructor for any post-graduate training or continuing education enhancement seminar. That is the reason that each instructor has been hand-picked to improve our profession and to benefit all of the students. We try to maintain a maximum ratio of 2-3 students per instructor during hands on lab for a better educational environment. Our instructors are not only nationally recognized, but some are also international speakers. We provide the best instructors of this profession and they bring their knowledge (which is second to none) to be shared with the students.
