Bastyr Offers Four New Continuing Education Training Programs

Bastyr University is happy to announce a quartet of new training programs aimed at educating health care professionals and the general public:

  • Essential Oil and Aromatherapy
  • Medical Qigong Self-Care
  • Medical Qigong Therapist
  • Hypnotherapy

“We are thrilled to make these programs available to those interested in continuing their education,” said Sue Russell, director of Bastyr University’s Certificate, Community and Continuing Education. “The classes are perfect for people interested in enhancing personal or family health, or for health and wellness professionals exploring the idea of adding an integrative component to their health care practices.”

The programs are designed with busy professionals in mind and use a blended learning model that includes classroom teachings on weekends, as well as home study and learning activities. Additionally, participants can enroll on a class-by-class basis to minimize the impact on one’s personal budget.

“To be able to add different educational options to Bastyr University’s already-rich list of traditional academic offerings is something we’re very proud of,” said Russell. “We are confident those who enroll in these non-degree programs will take away valuable information that can be applied to their personal or professional lives.”

For detailed information about the programs, a free informational meeting is scheduled from 6:30-8 p.m. Thursday, March 29, 2012, in room 1062 on the Bastyr University campus. Instructors for these four new programs, as well as those for the Whole Foods, Shamanism and CranioSacral classes will be at the session. Preregistration is requested online or by calling (425) 602-3152.
