I love to share my knowledge and experience regarding the safe and legal use of essential oils in my practice and my success in helping people with chronic headaches. There are some good reasons to add this information to your tool kit.
Reflexology and Essential Oils
First off, I will not be promoting essential oils from specific distributors. I do not represent any company, nor am I a distributor for any multi-level essential oil company. Instead, I will teach you the easiest and most accurate way to determine the quality of oils from companies you are interested in purchasing from.
Essential oils are not just nice-smelling potions; they are strong, medicinal chemicals that must be treated respectfully and with knowledge. The class, therefore, will focus on the safety factors in using essential oils in your practice. We will look at the therapeutic properties of some easily accessible oils, dilution options, and choosing oils to match your client’s profile and health needs. The application methods shared will all be topical or via inhalation; to use essential oils internally in the United States is classified as practicing medicine – a license for which is required. I will share ways in which you can safely support your reflexology clients with the addition of essential oils, and you will have the opportunity to make two products to take home to use.
Although I created this class for reflexologists (we will talk about some of the common conditions presented to reflexologists that we can help with essential oils), it is not necessary to have experience in giving reflexology or massage. We will not be practicing bodywork, but instead will be making essential oil products that can be used in your practice or for your own personal use. Feel free to invite friends who are interested in improving their wellbeing with aromatherapy (adults only). The cost of materials is included in the registration fee.
Apparently, about 45 million people in North America suffer regularly from headaches. The most difficult part of eliminating headaches from one’s life is of course, identifying the cause. And that is especially true for reflexologists. When someone presents to a massage therapist with a headache, the session is focused on relaxing the muscles of the head, neck and shoulders. Good choice if the headache is what is classified as “primary”. If, on the other hand, the headache is “secondary”, it is essential to be able to identify the health situation, so as to focus a reflexology session accurately. Massage helps primary headaches, reflexology, primary and secondary.
The class I am offering focuses a lot on identifying the cause of headaches, the changes that need to be introduced in order to eliminate, or at least reduce, the severity and occurrence of headaches, and focused hands-on sessions for specific causes that include reflexology, massage, essential oils and acupressure. So that you may help as many people as possible in your community (remember those 45 million?), I will provide you with tools and forms with which you can conduct individual or group coaching sessions with people to help uncover the cause of their headaches. Together we can reduce that outrageous number!
I hope the above helps clarify things and that you will take a moment now to register. I am confident that you will leave these classes with additional knowledge and tools that will increase your ability to help more and more people in your circle.
