We welcome you to Self-Heal School, providing holistic education in Ocean Beach, a small coastal community in San Diego, since 1985.

Our programs are designed to benefit those interested in learning natural healing for themselves, as well as those interested in pursuing a rewarding career in Professional Herbalism. We offer classes in herbal medicine, nutrition, aromatherapy, and energy healing.


Our graduates enjoy rewarding careers in clinical herbalism, making herbal medicines and natural products, owning and managing herb shops, wildcrafting and selling herbs, consulting, teaching, and other positions in the fast-growing herbal industry.

        I have been taking classes from Jane and John for many years and have always loved them, they were always the highlight of my week! They are excellent teachers who have a genuine love and deep understanding of their subject matter.

Not only do they make the information accessible and interesting, but the nurturing and passionate teaching environment that Self-Heal offers goes above and beyond the competition. I enrolled right away last year when I heard that Jane was doing another Herbalist’s Clinic.

During the 8 months of study I learned in depth how to approach a client and build rapport, how to prepare tinctures, teas, flower essences, and essential oils for specific ailments, and how to help a client meet fundamental nutritional needs.

Self-Heal Clinic is a comprehensive program that not only educates, but also allows you to build your confidence as a professional!

With this Herbal Certification through Self-Heal, coupled with a basic nutrition certificate, I now work as a nutrionist and herbalist at a busy Chiropractor’s office in Los Angeles, and also run the Wellness programs at Exhale Mind/Body Spa in Santa Monica, where the focus is integrated health and wellness, and where herbs and flower essences play a large role in every consultation I give.

Thanks to Self-Heal I feel that I am pursuing my purpose, making a difference, and having fun! I would recommend this hands-on program to anyone interested!     Kim K
