Our Advanced Aromatherapy Massage course has the edge!

This intermediate 5 day course will teach you how to combine essentials oils and make personalised blends for yourself, clients, family and friends.

Aromatherapy oils are more commonly referred to as 'essential oils'.

Essential oils are highly concentrated oils extracted from plants, herbs, fruits, peel, leaves, trees, bark, roots, seeds and flowers.

Aromatherapy uses the effects of these essential oils to promote health and vitality. Essential oils can be used to help with many common ailments and reduce the need for taking pain killers and other over the counter medicines. They are highly volatile and must be used with care and ALWAYS diluted. However essential oils have many therapeutic uses.

Please note: You will need an Anatomy & Physiology qualification. Previous knowledge of massage would be an advantage (but not necessary) to attend this enjoyable course. This is an intermediate aromatherapy 6 day course (taught over several weekends). You will receive a certificated qualification for insurance/industry purposes.
