About IEWS


The Institute of Energy Wellness Studies was established in 2005 to meet the growing need in the use of therapeutic Grade oils as used in the French system along with other energy system disciplines.


The school initiated its opening as a Registered Federally & Private Education Institution. It was:


  • Acknowledged as the first school to offer the three systems (French, British & German) in the use of essential oils called 'integrated aromatic sciences' in North America

  • Registered with the Canadian Examining Board of Health Practitioners

  • IEWS was granted the first official affiliation with the new essential oil natural health clinic in Ecuador by Dr. D. Gary Young called NOVA VITA Clinic Institute of Natural Medicine, Guayaquil, Ecuador


            Dr. D. Gary Young gave IEWS a magnificent endorsement about their Aromatic Program at one of the Health Expos in Toronto, April 1-2, 2006

“ Folks save your money……I want to commend  these folks – Sabina and Geoff – (Director and Co-Director of the school) for what they have created and for what they are doing in North America, period! That is for putting together the first accredited school program that will be teaching aromatic practitioners and giving you a certificate that was initiated and endorsed  by your Federal (Canadian) government,  (previously registered as a private recognized education institution by Human Resources and Social Development Canada)

 And they are teaching Gary’s method. Techniques that I have taught them will be the techniques taught in their school ….I thank the Directors of the School for the honor (of being the senior advisor for their school) to participate in a small way for this school.

            Sabina has a desire to do it the right way. That is what she has done…..It’s the First federally Accredited aromatherapy program – teaching all 3 systems – French, British and German that has been taught by Gary Young over 15 years) except we’re not calling it that – we’re calling it aromatic sciences – in North America”.





















The Integrated Aromatic Sciences Course Program was designed primarily by Dr. Sabina DeVita Ed.D. . It was based on the teaching and philosophies of D. Gary Young. Aspects of this program are similar to the Aromatherapy Courses that are presently available but with some major differences in application and philosophy.

In collaboration with previous faculty members, in the early days of IEWS development, Dr. David Stewart and Dr. Carolyn De Marco respectively, a most comprehensive course program was born.

The use of essential oils dates back as one of the oldest and most powerful therapies. Today it is being recognized for its therapeutic advantages as well as its efficacy world-wide.

The IEWS curriculum includes basic chemistry of essential oils, basic anatomy & physiology, application of essential oils, (inclusive of Vita-Flex and Raindrop Techniques), spiritual healing, and Egyptian emotional clearing. The Advanced covers facial aesthetic applications, and women’s/men's health issues.

The online program is designated to teach the student a Basic – 350 hour course which offers the Basic Diploma Certificate.

The advanced 450 hour course in aromatic sciences is not available at this time. It will be offered later.



The IEWS offers a distinct aromatic program unlike any other in North America. Most or perhaps all the aromatic schools in North America are based on the British system of application of essential oils. This has become the world standard for the use of Aromatherapy. It primarily teaches the use of essential oils through massage or topical uses only. The British system also teaches the importance of diluting the oils with carrier oils.

Instead, IEWS primarily teaches the French system in the application of essential oils. This includes two major procedures unlike the British system:

  1. The oral application of essential oils and

  2. The direct topical use of the oils without carrier oils. Obviously this can only be achieved with organic, therapeutic grade *AFNOR standard essential oils and knowledge of application.

*AFNOR – IEWS has chosen oils that meet the international standards for therapeutic – grade essential oils: there are generally two standards that are recognized at a world level & referred to most often: ISO and AFNOR.


ISO – International Standards Organization

AFNOR – Association French Normalization Organization Regulation


The AFNOR standards state the percentage of certain chemical constituents that must be present for an essential oil to be considered therapeutic grade. In order to gain the AFNOR stamp approval, the oils must be tested by the French laboratories. A third standard considered to be the “gold standard” now for essential oils is the EC – European Community – Standard.


3. IEWS has chosen a top quality company with impeccable standards in order to adhere to the internal and neat application of essential oils. This company is world recognized for its therapeutic AFNOR and EC standards, hence our choice to use Young Living essential oils.


IEWS also incorporates the British, French and the German systems hence the word “Integrated” in its title “Integrated Aromatic Sciences”.

About Me

Dr. Sabina M. DeVita Ed.D.

Sabina M. DeVita, B.A., M.Ed., Ed.D., N.N.C.P., OSJ, IPSP, CBP has a wealth of background experiences in various holistic areas and energy medicine practices.

She is the owner/founder of the DeVita Wellness Institute of Living and Learning, as well as, the International Institute of Energy Wellness Studies.  She has enjoyed being in private practice for over 25 years as an eclectic psychotherapist, registered nutritionist, doctor of natural medicine and specialized kinesis practitioner.  Her doctoral dissertation on “cerebral allergies” – understanding of Body, Mind, and Spirit was pioneer work in the field of psychology at the University of Toronto.

Dr. DeVita has always believed in working with the ‘whole’ person and at deeper causal issues since she experienced  her own health challenges. Her ongoing drug treatments from the traditional health-care system, produced poor and ill results, was all the more convincing for her that something was terribly missing. This  lead her to her studies and research where she synthesized many holistic/vibrational modalities into her private practice over the last 25 years.  


She is certified in “Touch for Health”, Body Alignment, Educational K ( Brain Gym) , Three In One, Thought Energy Synchronization Technique and BodyTalk.  She is trained in photocognitive therapy, acupuncture, herbalism, homeopathy, color therapy, reconnection, radionics, and integrated aromatics incorporating Young Living oils into her practice.  She is also a certified instructor for “Touch for Health”, One Brain, Edu-K, Raindrop Technique, and Jade Esthetics electrical massotherapy.  Her background of 18 years in education included years instructing at York University and the University of Toronto, guidance and counseling, child management, adult counseling, and multicultural teaching.  

​Dr. DeVita is an established author, having published seven books some of which include “Electromagnetic Pollution”,  “Saving Face - The Scents-Able Way to Wrinkle-Free Skin”, "Vibrational Cleaning", and “You Were Born To Dance With Ease!”, as well as, many informative booklets and articles.
Dr. DeVita is also an advanced graduate of the Bio Geometry teachings, personally trained by Dr. Ibrahim Karim, Founder and developer of the Bio-Geometry system. She represents the BG energy tools as an independent retailer on her website.

Dr. DeVita has been personally trained by Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, in Russia, and has partnered for years with Geoffrey Riley in training students. She was one of the presenters at the International Congress ‘Science, Information, Spirit’ held in St. Petersburg, Russia July 13-18, 2002 and again in July 2004, 2006, and 2008.  Since then, she has trained many students in GDV throughout North and South America (Hawaii, California, Texas, Arizona, Puerto Rico), Japan, Korea, Kuwait, and various other states and provinces.
By utilizing GDV Kirlionics/ now called BioWell in her practice, it has allowed Dr. DeVita to visually show her clients their spiritual, psychological and emotional states of health that affect their physical body.  It has allowed her clients to see their own changes after energy or aromatic treatment sessions.  The GDV kirlian device has become a powerful ‘awareness’ mirror for an individual to see hidden aspects of his/her self, making the GDV a reliable, quick, and accurate tool.

Dr. DeVita was also personally trained by D. Gary Young (President and Founder of Young Living Company) over the period of 18 years - from 1999 to 2017. She was an avid student (with over 850 hours of hands-on training with D. Gary Young). She loved to travel with her husband to the various YL privately-owned farms worldwide as part of her learning about the farming, harvesting and distilling practices. She was personally certified in Raindrop and Neuro-Auricular Techniques plus other body treatment techniques by the Founder, D. Gary Young. She was honored to be a selected facilitator for Gary during many of his large Raindrop audience trainings.

Hon. Dame Dr. DeVita was knighted in November 2004 as Dame of the Sovereign Order of Knights Hospitaller of St. John of Jerusalem alongside D. Gary Young. She was later knighted as  Dame Commander in 2010.  She was also appointed as Deputy Member of the Canadian Delegation for the International Parliament of Safety and Peace (IPSP) in 2005 to 2012.  As an Honorable Diplomat, she presented at the annual IPSP conferences on ecological topics and holistic health-care.  On two occasions, she along with D. Gary Young were speakers for the annual IPSP conference in Italy.
