This intermediate course in Professional Aromatherapy Massage is ideal if you are already practicing body massage, or other bodywork therapies. You will learn about the effects, benefits and properties of each oil, how to mix and blend, how Aromatherapy treatments can help alleviate common ailments together with a full body aromatherapy massage routine.
There are 2 days of practical training with home study including online theory test. You will learn how to conduct a thorough client consultation prior to treatment so that you can select which blend of base oil and aroma oils will be most effective, you can then use your oil blend to deliver a very effective full body aromatherapy massage therapy for your client.
This is an intermediate course and requires you to have a body massage qualification. Also perfect as a CPD course for practicing therapists.
Yes of course. Our classes are small (between 2-8 participants) and so you'll receive focused guidance and individual attention from our teacher. You will also be taught a complete therapy treatment routine for delivering to your clients. And because students practice upon one another, you will also experience for yourself how amazing and effective this treatment can be.
You will learn the same practical skills as with a longer course but you'll need to practice the treatment routine upon friends and family, using your manual and (where available) our on-line tutorial videos for further assistance after your practical training in order to perfect the techniques.
You're always welcome to return and attend only the practical training again. This is known as a refresher course and allows you to brush up on the techniques you have learned with us. Refresher courses are only available to students who have previously completed their course with us, and substantial discounts are offered.
No, this is a Diploma course. Diploma courses are also known as ‘short courses’ or ‘fast-track training’. However, the treatment techniques you'll learn are similar, and in some cases more extensive than on a level 3 course.
Please note: You need to have a qualification in body massage in order to undertake this course.
