Aromatherapists use the concentrated essences of plants to encourage the body back into a state of wellness. Essential oils can be used to relax, to stimulate or uplift. But what many people realise is not only do they affect the emotions but they will help mend the physical body too. Nowadays aromatherapy is seen as a valuable way to treat stress related illness.
The course is made up of two separate qualifications: The Aromatherapy Diploma and a certificate in Anatomy and Physiology.
· Explore the different systems of the body and the oils which affect its different parts.
· Study the history of aromatherapy. How the plant medicine of our ancestors was forgotten but has been re-found.
· Discover how to use aromatherapy to treat simple conditions
· Uncover the beauty secrets of essential oils affect the skin
· Learn how massage and lymphatic drainage techniques
· Gain the business requirements to run a successful aromatherapy practice
Many aromatherapists choose to focus on the beauty elements of their course and work in salons giving massage and facials. Others find the clinical element more interesting. Some work in hospices and hospitals giving support to ill patients. Many work with dementia patients in care homes to improve their cognition and giving additional support to their families. Some work as doulas helping babies come happily into the world. A large percentage of aromatherapists run businesses which are a melting pot of all of these elements.
A successful aromatherapist can earn an income of between £18-22,000 pa depending on geographical location and experience.
