6 in stock
This Aromamassage course costs £295, and a £50 commitment fee is required at time of booking. We will then arrange to take the rest of the cost of £245 in two monthly payments.
The application of essential or aromatic oils to the human body has been practised for thousands of years, and is recognised as a highly effective holistic treatment in its own right. Oils have a unique combination of constituents which can interact with the body, affecting both individual organs and whole systems. Aromatherapy uses special massage techniques in combination with the concentrated herbal energies in essential oils to treat the diseases of both the body and the mind. This Aromamassage course uses pre-prepared oil blends to achieve different effects on the body and mind.
The course will run on 6 full days. If you are interested, we can organise it to suit you: please get in touch.
This course is only suitable for those who are studying or have completed a level 3 body massage qualification.

You will learn about the effect of the oils on the body systems; history, theory & development of Aromatherapy; Aromatherapy massage techniques; how to perform an effective full body aromatherapy massage treatment.

How and where will I be taught?
This program is delivered at The Amethyst Centre. We use a variety of teaching methods which will vary according to the groups we have. Much learning is through practical application, discussion, exploration with treatments performed on each other until safe correct techniques have been mastered. You will then progress to working on clients and will be able to evaluate the effectiveness of your treatments and complete task work quickly during the course.
How much work will I have to do from home?
You will be given research, practical and written tasks to do each week; they will take between 1-2 hours depending on your learning style plus you will have the anatomy & physiology learning to compete which can be done at your own pace. There is no pressure to complete all the work within the hours of the course; we offer a lifelong learning opportunity so you can keep going without the pressure.
How will I be assessed?
The practical will be assessed carrying out a massage treatment on clients once you have fulfilled the pre assessment requirements covering a variety of massage treatments on different body types.
