  • Description:

Aromatherapy is a natural technique designed to assist the body's natural ability to balance and maintain itself through the skilled use of essential oils. It is both an art and a science based on the interaction between the aromatherapist, the client and the essential oils, which all work together to elicit the client's innate, self-healing energy. Aromatherapy may be used as a preventative approach or as a support during various stages of illness or 'dis'-ease. As a holistic modality, aromatherapy is able to work on several levels -- physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual -- to effect over-all health, well-being, beauty and vitality.

   

Essential oils are the volatile (quickly-evaporating) essences produced by aromatic plants through the process of photosynthesis. The constituents of a plant's oil (its essence) may be extracted from its flowers, leaves, grasses, bark, peels, roots, seeds, and/or resins, and some plants can produce more than one essential oil, depending on the part used.  Essential oils contain a tremendous amount of a plant's energy, and only a small quantity is needed for significant effects. Individual oils or specially-prepared blends can be used for health-giving, meditative, restorative or relaxing purposes. By assisting the body directly in balancing itself and immediately reducing the stress that causes more than 75% of all illnesses; all of the body systems are affected in a positive way. By learning about aromatherapy, you can learn to take care of yourself, your friends and family, and paying clients in a practice of your own, as part of a CAM group, or for a spa.

   

Join us – on-line and in small classes to explore the “scent-sational” world of aromatherapy as a health care practice!  This class is for you if you would like to practice aromatherapy but not do bodywork or if you already have a bodywork practice. This clinical-level class is equivalent to 500 hours, and certification qualifies you to be recognized as a CERTIFIED AROMATHERAPY HEALTH PROFESSIONAL – WITHOUT BODYWORK [CAHP] by the Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists. Get answers to the following questions – and more: What is aromatherapy? How does it work? What are its benefits? What exactly are essential oils, hydrosols, and carrier oils, how are they made, and how do we use them? You will learn the theory and its practical applications, holistic anatomy & physiology & pathology.  Class meetings will be hands-on and sharing of projects, such as: identifying oils by smell; making individualized blends: preparing & sharing health care products such as creams, lotions, etc.; preparing items that will help you expand your business. No case studies required for this certificate will include bodywork.

The main focus of this class is on guiding you to become a heart-focused, mindful practitioner in al of the work that you do.  Heart-focused interactions permit you to live a life and conduct your business, whatever it may turn out to be, to align with your values. Heart-focused interactions permit you to be able to make deeper connections with yourself, your work, your clients, your suppliers, and your community.  And heart-focused interactions permit you, too,  to become more mindful of your own growth, self, and health.

You will be presented with a truly holistic way of assessing a client -- the BelArôme LENS © -- so that the INDIVIDUALIZED BLEND you prepare will be the safest and most effective blend possible for your client.  This wider view of understanding your client will help you to better create a health plan for your client and to support your client along that client's health journey.
