In-Class Training

Aromatherapy massage should be an outer body experience! The therapist will not speak with the client or move them much in order to fully experience the bliss of floating away on the ethers. It is also the best way of getting the essential oils into the body and you can offer clients either an aromatherapy massage, which is slow and medatative for deep relaxation and stress reduction, or offer a massage with essential oils, which is where your client prefers the deeper work but you can add in essential oils to enhance the treatment. It is great to have that versatility and also be able to make a sell bespoke essential oil products to your clients to use in between massage sessions.


Workshop 1: Aromatherapy Massage Theory and Techniques, and the difference in approach - to include lymph drainage, meridian chasing and acupressure.

Workshop 2: Blending essential oils for massage instruction and practice. Aromatherapy clay facials. Adapting existing massage skills for the aromatherapy client or thinking about using essential oils for deep massage work.

Workshop 3: Review of practical applications taught and assessment on clients. Students will be working on eachother as well as on provided clients.
