Coming in March to CenterPoint: Anyone Can Learn the Basics of Aromatherapy

13 Jan 2017

Are you interested in learning a natural, pleasant health care therapy that can be practiced by anyone? “Aromatherapy Basics,” coming in March to our Minneapolis massage school, is the class for you!  

As more and more people turn to natural health care alternatives, the interest in aromatherapy is growing. We include basic instruction in aromatherapy is part of the curriculum for our bodywork students, but we recognize that there is quite an interest in the general public in this healing art and science. That’s why we’re making this class available to all.

What is aromatherapy? Quite simply, it is the use of certain essential oils derived from plants to bring about physical and/or psychological wellness.

What Is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is an ancient art, and it has been practiced by just about all cultures around the world. It makes use of oils that have been naturally extracted from flowers, barks, and other plant parts.  

These essential oils can be used in a variety of ways, including rubbed on the skin, diffused in the air, or inhaled in a vapor. Oils may be used by themselves, in combination, or in a carrier such as another oil or in a cream, lotion, salve, or other preparation. They can be used in bath salts or even dripped into the bath water. Scented candles that are made with naturally extracted essential oils are also another way to use aromatherapy.

Benefits of Aromatherapy

Those who have regular therapeutic massage may already have experienced the benefits of these oils. Perhaps you’ve lay down with your face in the cradle and inhaled the oils your therapist placed beneath it. Or maybe you’ve made use of eucalyptus oil in a bowl of steaming water to clear your head. Even those who are familiar with the stomach-calming effects of peppermint or ginger tea might be surprised to find that simply inhaling the scent can bring about the same effect. And certain aromatherapy oils can even help you sleep. At this time of year when colds and flu are prevalent, you might really appreciate learning how to use essential oils to combat these illnesses.

But just because these oils are natural doesn’t mean they can be used without some instruction. The word ‘natural’ doesn’t necessarily mean harmless. After all, arsenic and lead are natural, but they can both also be very toxic. In this class, you’ll learn how to safely use therapeutic oils to care for you, your family, and your friends.

Aromatherapy Basics is open to anyone, but if you’re a bodywork professional, you can earn 6 CE credits by attending. For course details and registration information, click here.  Register by February 23, 2017.
