Arthritis and Aromatherapy
How can we be effective in our treatments for this client group?
CPD – 6 points (IFPA) / 5 points (FHT)
With an increasingly ageing population, it is probable that therapists will encounter more clients with this painful and debilitating condition. How can we be effective in our treatments for this client group? This informative course gives the therapist the opportunity to look at gout, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, medications that may have been prescribed, diet and other lifestyle issues that can affect these conditions.
We examine how aromatherapy can help by looking at the presenting symptoms of the client, and then how to select appropriate essential and carrier oils. Methods and mediums of application are explored and there will be an opportunity to blend oils for specific cases.
Pre-requisite: A qualification in Anatomy and Physiology | An aromatherapy qualification to PPA standards
