16 HOURS - certificate awarded upon succesful completion of course. Having a basic understanding of the chemistry of essential oils allows us to use them to greater benefit. But don’t let the word chemistry scare you off!! We will clearly and simply discuss the attributes of essential oils and how they can best work together without neutralizing each other. That way we can use them for greatest advantage for ourselves, our family and friends, or our massage clients. After we cover the Chemistry basics, we will be focusing on the attributes of a series of pre-blended oils, and then we will use those blends to create useful products to take home.   Course Prerequisites:  none (but it is suggested to have completed Aromatherapy 100 prior to enrolling in this course if possible).   Required Reading / Instructional Materials:  There is no required text for this class – the instructor will provide you with written handouts.  You are required to bring a bottle of water and a hand towel.       Recommended Reading:  Essential Oils Desk/Pocket Reference, 6th edition, by Essential Sciences Publishing The Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple by David Stewart

6 HOURS CERTIFICATE AWARDED.  When we have stress in our lives it shows on our face as a result of a fascial constriction called “body armoring.” A unique area that can hold the stresses of daily life and impact the entire body, the face is one of the most important areas to massage effectively. Whether massaging self or using these techniques on clients in practice, releasing the tension held in the face relaxes the entire nervous system via the fascial network. We will discuss the anatomy/physiology theory behind the benefit of facial massage, and then learn an easy to remember set of steps and techniques to use on clients and self. Please bring a bottle of water, a hand towel and fitted sheet. Wear something comfortable.
