Aromatherapy 101 for RMT’s is an evidence based course dedicated to providing massage therapists with research driven learning to safely and effectively incorporate aromatherapy into their treatments. Students will be taught a thorough introduction into essential oils, the science behind oils in general (as well as specific common oils) and how they affect both the CNS and SNS. Contraindications, considerations and cautions will be covered in an in-depth manner, from basic safety to pathology specific alerts. Scope of practice for each association will be presented to clarify the use of oils in practice. Each trimester of pregnancy will be covered in this course, with a breakdown of which oils are safe to be added to a pre-natal massage. Contraindications specific to pregnancy related pathologies will be addressed, in addition to the ability to safely incorporate aromatherapy into pediatric massage. Students will learn a variety of ways oils can be added to their treatments, with practical application and partner work. Upon completion, students will safely be able to incorporate aromatherapy into their treatments, have a sound knowledge base for client education and be able to distinguish contraindications related to aromatherapy.
