Aromatherapy and Biofields Masterclass

Continuing Professional Development Certificate available on completion.

In Aromatherapy and biofields, we explore the key concepts of biofield therapies, review many of the challenges that biofield therapies face and discuss ways in which they can be integrated into mainstream healing practices. We will explore a range of biofield therapies and discuss how they can be incorporated with aromatherapy.

  • identify the common features of biofield and subtle therapies

  • explore a range of models used to describe the subtle body such as TCM and the chakras.

  • Explore a range of biofield therapies such as reiki, homoeopathy, flower essences, colour therapy and crystals and how they can be used in conjunction with aromatherapy.

  • examine the relationship between the world health organisation (WHO) happiness report and the chakras.

  • examine the scientific evidence for the existence of biofields/subtle energy.

  • investigate how essential oils influence our biofield/subtle energy.

  • examine how we can improve our health and wellbeing through an awareness of our subtle body and use of essential oils

  • explore a range of essential oils and the effect that they have on our subtle energy.
