Advanced CPD for qualified Aromatherapists
Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions affect individuals of all ages and this advanced CPD course aims to take a look at improving your knowledge and understanding of how best to blend in order to address such conditions.
This course is aimed at qualified aromatherapists wanting to explore effective treatment options for MSK conditions in terms of selecting appropriate essential oils and aromatic bases. Although the course is mainly theoretical we will also discuss various other treatment modalities such as massage, thermotherapy and cryotherapy which could be incorporated into your treatment. In addition you will explore the properties of 6 interesting essential oils which are particularly useful for MSK conditions.
We will send you a 1 ml sample of each oil so that you can “experience” the aroma of the oils as you study the course.
