The vision of ISHA is to help restore healing to Christianity and to the world.

Our mission is two-fold. First, it is to provide educational programming to enable students to integrate the spiritual and scriptural aspects of healing ministry, prayer, the laying-on of hands and anointing with essential oils in their faith communities or in their ministry/service settings. Second, it is to provide education to enable students to establish private practices in hands-on healing and/or aromatherapy.


The Institute of Spiritual Healing and Aromatherapy (ISHA) offers two educational programs: Healing Touch Spiritual Ministry which focuses on Spiritual Healing or Energy Healing and Certification in Aromatherapy to prepare practitioners like you in the art of hands-on healing and anointing with essential oils. Both programs are forms of energy medicine used in complementary health care, private practice, ministry settings, or for personal wellness.  Healing Touch Spiritual Ministry and the 3 levels of Certification in Aromatherapy courses are available throughout the United States and in some other countries – Australia, Canada,Singapore, and Trinidad. Check our schedule for a course near you or click on the logos below to explore each program’s offerings.
