Aromatherapy Course

How would you like to train as an Aromatherapist? This course includes the ‘Full Body Massage’ using your own blends of ‘Essential Oils’.

Aromatherapy has proved to be highly successful in the alleviation and cure of many ailments. Aromatherapy works in two ways – the widely accepted benefits of body massage and the inhalation of essential oils reduce stress and improve the general state of health and well-being. This is a comforting, reassuring and healing therapy.

Our course is open to both ‘practicing therapists’ and individuals who have an interest to learn this skill. This in-depth course will lead you step-by-step through the treatment sequence and teach you everything you need to know in order to become a Professional in your field.

No previous knowledge is required to study this subject; we train our students from beginner to practitioner/therapist level.

There is a link from our course material to an instructional ‘Massage Video’, which demonstrates all the Practical Massage Techniques for this subject, demonstrated by a Professional Therapist.

Students who do not wish to study and qualify in the ‘practical massage’ element will be awarded our accredited diploma in – Aromatherapy (theory).

Aromatherapy Course Feedback

I am happy to share my experience studying for Aromatherapy course with the School of Natural Health Sciences.

The course was a good introduction into the subject with well structured handouts that gave me guidance while making me look for more information independently.

The flexibility of learning new holistic skills in my own time suits me well. The School has an extensive program for anyone wishing to learn holistic healing craft. Your feedback on my papers was always prompt and brief and I also appreciate your availability on the phone.

I look forward to continuing my collaboration with the School. Many thanks for your support so far.

I have really enjoyed studying with the School of Natural Health Sciences and will definitely be pursuing more courses in the future. Thank you too to your fabulous staff and my lovely Tutor Richard Sneddon.

I found you on Google and was taken by how easy it is to study with your school, there’s no complex system; you just enrol and get on with the lessons. My lessons were very thorough and to the point, a fabulous course!!

I have really enjoyed the Aromatherapy course and want to learn more.

Thank you for this course, it has been interesting and informative, with easy to follow lessons and question papers. I would recommend this subject to anyone. I only wish I had the time and money to study more with you, as I find alternative therapies fascinating and very worthwhile in today’s manic lifestyle.

Looking forward, very much, to starting my next course with the School of Natural Health Sciences!
