All Things Topical

Bring it all together by understanding herbal medicine through a topical lens.

  Enroll in Course

Have you been wondering how topical application of herbs get into the skin? Whether herbs are actually absorbed by the skin? How do topical applications affect pain & inflammation? Or how effective they are they? What about carrier oil choices?

There are a lot of little pieces of information out there that people might get in different trainings or classes – but there's nothing that just brings it all together through the lens of topical medicine.

This is a brand new online program all about healing and understanding our bodies through a topical lens. When you're done you will have an abundance of information that you can work with, and a new framework in which to understand the whole-person in your healing work.

Tammi Sweet
Tammi Sweet

Tammi Sweet loves to teach. It’s her superpower. She has a magical ability to connect with almost anyone when teaching and help them understand complex material.

For over 30 years, Tammi has shared her gift of teaching at various colleges, massage schools and herbal schools throughout the country. Her background in physiology makes her an invaluable resource to developing herbalists, massage therapists and anyone wanting to care for their bodies alike, who want to deepen their foundational knowledge of the body.

In addition to her physiology expertise, Tammi is also a practitioner and teacher of herbal medicine. She is deeply influenced by her studies with accomplished herbalists, including Rosemary Gladstar, Pam Montgomery, Brooke Medicine Eagle,Tom Brown, Jr. and especially Stephen Buhner’s pioneering work on the heart as an organ of perception.

In 2007, Tammi set out to “combine all the things I love into one curriculum and teach whatever I wanted in ways that made sense--on my own terms.” So she and her partner Kris Miller launched the Heartstone Center for Earth Essentials.

At Heartstone, Tammi and Kris run two residential programs, an Herbal Apprenticeship and Journey of the Heart. They also offer online courses that integrate physiology and plant medicine with Tammi’s love of teaching, such as her signature course Anatomy & Physiology for Herbalists.

Tammi’s vision is for Heartstone to co-create a space with the land, where people can come "home," take refuge and find the sacred both on the land and within themselves and facilitate healing. When not teaching, Tammi loves to spend time alone and ‘recharge’ by exploring the land, writing, and hiking.

Is this class for Massage Therapists?
This class is really amazing for a massage therapist because it's everything in your wheelhouse. Massage Therapists have an amazing opportunity to really “up their game” by adding remedies into the oils that they use in a way where the medicine can be absorbed into the skin. So along with getting the 10 CEU’s, you're getting so much valuable information that can immediately be applied in massage practice.
Is this class for product creators?
If you’re a product creator, it’s important that you can educate your customers (or potential customers) and show them the difference between your medicine and everyone else’s is, and why yours is the obvious best choice– which it will be. :) To be honest, there are so many products that are simply ineffective because most people don’t know HOW and WHY the skin works. So, yes, absolutely as a product creator you should have this knowledge not only so you can make products that work but so you talk about why it works.
