Aromatic Reflexology

Aromatic Reflexology is the holistic integration of aromatherapy and reflexology, providing a hands-on technique of merging touch with aroma. Throughout Saturday we will cover the basics of foot reflexology and review its history, therapeutic benefits, and contraindications. The basics of aromatherapy, the philosophy of aromatic reflexology and over 20 essential oils will be covered. Time will be allotted for practice during the afternoon.

Throughout the day on Sunday you will learn how to create dynamic spa treatments to enhance your aromatic reflexology sessions utilizing medicinal herbs, honey, salt, clay, sugar, fruit, other raw material, blending and unique applications. You will be able to offer a number of new and innovative treatments for your clients upon completion of the program.

This is a practice based program open to all who are interested in reflexology and aromatherapy.
We have found that students taking the Aromatic Reflexology certificate program are primarily interested in:

  • Enhancing an existing health care or esthetic practice
