The IMS’s professional training is divided into three parts:

Year 1 – Holistic Nutrition & Cooking Year (foundational studies).
Year 2 – Health Coach Year (qualify in three healing arts – Health Coach, Whole Foods Chef & Wellbeing Shiatsu).
Year 3 – Macrobiotic Health Consultant Year (qualify as an accredited Macrobiotic Health Consultant & Medicinal Cook)

The Holistic Nutrition & Cooking Year course provides a high quality, thorough and foundational training in macrobiotics including Oriental philosophy and medicine, Do-in exercise, lots of cooking classes, emotional healing and personal development with exams at the end of this year, and a completion certificate. You can expect to learn things on this course for your own benefit or as a basis for our Health Coach Year & Macrobiotic Health Consultant Year courses where we will help you to gain professional skills, build a new career and create a successful practice.

 Why Study Macrobiotics & Oriental Medicine with IMS

 We use a person-centred approach with an emphasis on embodied nutrition and the health and deep transformation of our students.

– Solid, in-depth training and practice-oriented study leading to confident and successful practitioners.

– We keep our student numbers small to guarantee high quality care, support and mentoring to support students in their personal growth, learning and professional development.

– We offer a transformative, holistic approach which includes the study of life on a physical, energetic, emotional, mental  and spiritual level.

– Excellent advanced & post graduate studies for continuous professional development.

– Flexible, lifelong learning with options to study online or in person.

At the end of the Holistic Nutiriton & Cooking Year you will receive a Certificate showing that you have studied macrobiotic approaches to health and healing, macrobiotic cooking, Do-in exercise and the meridian system, listening and basic emotional supportive skills.

Continuing onto the Health Coach Year you will gain professional qualifications in three healing arts – as a Health Coach, Whole Food Chef and Wellbeing Shiatsu Practitioner. We then have a Macrobiotic Health Consultant Year giving a very thorough training in giving individual health consultations to help people recover from a very wide range of illnesses and problems, and give deep life guidance.

After gaining qualifications from the school at the end of the second and third year courses, you can gain accreditation with the Macrobiotic Association and enter its professional register.

In 2018 the International Macrobiotic School had its training and assessments ratified by the Macrobiotic Association. This means that its second and third year graduates are exampted from the Macrobiotic Association theory and cooking exams, and only need to sit an interview.

Prerequisites for IMS’s Holistic Nutrition & Cooking Year

The main requirement is a basic knowledge of macrobiotics and an enthusiasm for studying and practising this holistic approach to eating and living.

Further Studies

IMS offers graduates the opportunity to further increase their knowledge and development by attending regular supervision sessions and advanced studies.

Who Are The Teachers?

You will be taught by a team of teachers led by Oliver Cowmeadow who has over 40 years experience of teaching as well as guiding thousands of students and clients towards greater health and is one of the country’s leading practitioners of macrobiotics.  Find out more about Oliver and the other teachers for this course here.

Other members of the team have all studied the full training at the school, and have gained wide practical experience through their own professional practice.

How Much Does The Course Cost? And Can I Pay Monthly?

The usual course fee for the online/intensive is £3,750, and for the residential course £3,900 but for this year only we are offering a massive £1000 discount to help people during these economically challenging times. So the online course now costs £2,750 and the residential cost £2,900. For such an indepth course with much personal guidance this is really a steal! A deposit of £750 is payable to secure your place. The course fee includes all teaching, course materials, small group tutorials, and three meals each day.

JOINT DISCOUNTS

We frequently get couples, good friends, and sometimes mothers and daughters or sons joining our Foundation Year Course. To make this easier financially we are offering a 25% reduction for the second person.

This reduces the residential course fees from £2,900 to £2175, saving £775, with 10 monthly instalments of £147.50.
