The main aim of the IFPA (International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists – UK) is to enable candidates to provide professional Holistic treatments for the purpose of stress release. It uses blending of essential oils for relaxation and treating other ailments.

Holistic Aromatherapy includes the study of 66 essential oils, 20 base oils and 4 herb oils, along with the chemical constituents, contraindications and safety data of each oil.
In the Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology unit, the candidates will self-study the human body systems and diseases. Support will be provided throughout the program with on line tests, assignments and homework. The Professional Conduct and Business awareness module will cover the practitioner’s code of conduct and ethics, as well as the business acumen necessary to suit a professional career.

Successful completion of this certificate is determined by case studies carried out by the candidate amounting to 140 hours of treatments (10 clients x 6 sessions each for Aromatherapy and 10 clients x 6 sessions for Therapeutic Massage). Candidates doing this course with massage will have to complete, 4 written theory exams and 1 Therapeutic Massage Practical and 1 Aromatherapy Practical evaluation.

Aromatherapy is a treatment designed to help maintain physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing by the correct application of pure essential oils. The word ‘aroma’ means a fragrance or sweet smell and the word therapy simply means a treatment designed to bring about a positive change in an individual.
Since an aromatherapy treatment is concerned with creating balance and equilibrium within a person, its primary uses are to calm, uplift, detoxify, de-stress and invigorate – in others words, to help the body to help itself to regain health or wellbeing.

Although many people assume that aromatherapy is simply a fragrant massage, the real effects of clinical aromatherapy treatments can be deeper and more therapeutic than this.
Aromatherapy is not always integrated with massage – there are many ways that essential oils can be used to positive effect. Other methods include:
• Inhalation
• Bathing
• Lotions/Creams
• Compress and more

A professional Aromatherapist will be able to advise you on the right dosage for each method, and the best way for you to incorporate essential oils into your daily routine.

Graduates can gain employment in health and wellness centers, salons, spas, cruise liners, NHS trust and various other parts of the health industry.
