- Lab - An area dedicated to demonstration and participation where students will learn to apply new techniques and formulate oils and liniments.
- Reading - This session meets two days per week to allow students time and materials to complete written assignments.
- Video - Videos will be viewed by the students one day per week to study practitioners applying actual techniques.
