WITH 

COLLEEN O'FLAHERTY

Colleen is a registered teacher of the IFA AromaCare course for both Carers and Teacher balboa

he IFA Aromacare Carer’s course is a practical, hands-on course, teaching learners about touch and massage to communicate caring and understanding with the elderly, children and as a means of stress relief for those who have prohibitive physical and mental conditions. It enables carers to add a new dimension to their care and provides a myriad of skills to safely and effectively apply and experience essential oils for those who, for whatever reasons, are unable to tolerate a standard massage on a couch or the more invasive therapies. 

The Aromacare Course is a dynamic and extremely rewarding course to teach. Such is the flexibility of the course that no person or place of care is excluded. You may have already decided which care setting you wish to introduce the course into or simply wish to teach the course to others so that your students may decide for themselves. The short duration of the course (5 days) means it can be taught simultaneously throughout the year. Given the audience the course attracts, a lot of centre owners seek sponsorship for some candidates from their local council and community drawing attention to their clinic in the press.
