Diploma in Aromatic Therapy

Body in Balance Training Diploma in Aromatic Therapy

This diploma course is currently in development.

A unique, joint, venture between Mariette Lobo and Jennifer Rhind, this is an adjunctive therapy course aimed at:

  • complementary therapy professionals who already possess a recognised therapy qualification in some form of bodywork (for example, Indian Head Massage, Hand and Foot Reflexology, Body Massage, Remedial Massage)
  • health care professionals (for example, sports therapists, physiotherapists, podiatrists, nurses).

It is focussed on using Essential Oils and Aromatic Plant Extracts to enhance and augment existing professional skills.

The course will provide in-depth study which will cover a comprehensive range of essential oils and absolutes – their physical, emotional and cognitive therapeutic benefits as well as their applications in the complementary care setting.
