Four-Day Aromatherapy Diploma
Aromatherapy is a wonderful and powerful therapeutic treatment which combines the essential oils of plants with massage. Aromatherapy relaxes and supports you on all levels : mind, body and spirit.
Aromatherapy can help with a range of conditions e.g. skin problems, depression, respiratory ailments, insomnia or anxiety. Aromatherapy is used to treat sprains and strains, headaches, digestive problems and sinusitis. Regular aromatherapy treatments will boost the immune system, raise energy levels and instill a feeling of well being.
