What is the Holistic Health Education about?

During the Holistic Health Education you will be trained in guiding people to activate their selfhealing powers and increase your own health and happiness. 

The Holistic Health Education is based on the Wheel of Health, which offers a comprehensive and holistic approach to physical and mental health by combining several elements in such a way that the body’s self healing powers are activated in a simple and natural way without the need of extreme measures. 

Holistic Health Education

What is so special about the Holistic Health Education?

A person is perceived as a whole of body, mind, spirit and relationships. The focus is on the whole person rather than on treating a disease.

Our body has an amazing capacity to heal, as it replaces up to 300 billion cells a day. A positive outlook on life, good living conditions, movement & proper nutrition naturally creates healthy cells. 

The Holistic Health Education is a simple and effective path to activate the body’s self-healing powers – both in regard to physical and mental health. In its core it combines the modern Western scientific approach (epigenetics) with the Eastern energetic approach.


What will you learn?

To become a certified Holistic Health Activator you need to complete the Holistic Health Education as well as the Mentor & Supervision Program for Aima coaches and the Mentor and Supervision Program for Holistic Health Activators. During these programs you will receive supervision until you have qualified to be on your own with clients. 


Which elements are included?


Simple and effective path to activate the body’s self-healing powers – both in regard to physical and mental health.

How do we study?
