Introductory and Short Courses

Due to many requests, we have produced these one-day courses for those who wish to gain a basic understanding of a therapy out of personal interest to be used on family and friends. They are also a great way for those interested on taking up holistic therapies professionally to get a 'taster' before committing to a full course.

The "Introduction to Aromatherapy" and "Introduction to Massage" are two one-day courses over one weekend. These courses can be taken separately, but together they provide an excellent beginners set of skills for providing therapy for family and friends.

Introduction to Aromatherapy

Get the most out of using essential oils for your family and friends, and around your home. Using the right Aromatherapy essential oil in the right way is a great way to change your mood, help concentration and memory, and assist in the healing process. Essential oils are readily available to all, but can have very powerful effects, so using them safely is vital.

Whether you're new to using oils or have been using them for some time, this 'Introduction to Aromatherapy' course is a fun, one day intensive course that will give you the basics on how aromatherapy came to be, what are essential oils, how they work, and the best way to use them safely in various circumstances. You will learn about four essential oils in detail and practice preparing a blend of oils that you will be able to take away with you. An detailed information pack is provided covering the subjects covered on the day.

Introduction to Massage

This course is designed for the complete beginner who would like to learn basic massage techniques to use on family and friends. You will be guided in how to effectively use massage strokes in a structured sequence as used by professional therapists. There will be plenty of opportunities to receive one-to-one tuition and to practice on other course members making this and fun and interactive day.

You will learn how to:

  • Ease muscle tensions aches and pains by giving a back massage for an effective and total relaxation experience.
  • Give a rejuvenating facial massage, sometimes referred to as "the non surgical face lift".

Full supporting material will be provided.
