"Aromatherapy is the fragrant art of using specially selected aromatic oils for therapeutic purposes. It is one of the fastest growing complementary therapies in the world."
All essential oils are antiseptic and have different effects - some regulate metabolic function, some stimulate, whilst some others will soothe irritations and anxieties. Massage is used with the oils to enhance their effectiveness.
Essential oils can be used safely at home for many ailments. This Aromatherapy Course will take you through from the extraction to the application of the oils for therapeutic purposes, as well as cover aromatherapy massage techniques.
Aromatherapy is one of the most widely used therapies and this course will enable you to successfully practice as an aromatherapist.
One of the key features of this aromatherapy course is the inclusion of the anatomy and physiology added qualification.
This course includes “hands on” based practical training. The first part of the course is the distance learning theory element which is completed in your own time and done entirely from the comfort of your own home. As you near the end of your theory training we will contact you to arrange booking you onto your practical training. The practical training is run regularly throughout the year. You can decide when you are going to attend and which one of our national network of training centres would be most convenient for you to attend.
