Essential Oils for Pregnancy & Childbirth

21st Mar 2020

This course is for all therapists trained in Aromatherapy: Many therapists who practice aromatherapy unnecessarily avoid using their essential oils with their pregnant clients. This fear or apprehension to do so has happened because there has been a lot of misinformation circulated about this topic.

With the right knowledge gained through good training - your pregnant clients can receive the significant benefits of aromatherapy. So come & join this lovely course.

The aim of this course is to build therapist confidence in using essential oils to treat pregnant women safely. With a realistic approach, taking into account relevant research, this is such a rewarding treatment to give. It may also set therapists apart from others in their area.

To attend this course you must have a recognised aromatherapy qualification - minimum level 3 - this may be an Aromatherapy Diploma or you may have completed the Complementary Therapies (VTCT or similar) level 3 course incorporating aromatherapy

Excellent value. Sound information, instills confidence in using essential oils in pregnancy

The course has given me knowledge & confidence to treat a client in pregnancy.Extremely knowledgeable tutor, I found the course more than beneficial

I’m  organising an event at a local baby superstore next week for pregnant mums to come along and have pregnancy therapy tasters (with other pregnancy specialists as well as myself) to raise money for our local maternity unit. Busy, busy, busy!
