Fusion AromaTherapy™ and Pain Class with Madeleine Kerkhof
July 13, 2019 @ 9:00 am - July 16, 2019 @ 5:00 pm$899
Fusion Aromatherapy™ and Pain is a journey into the world of integrated approaches towards pain at all levels. The pain model of Loeser is our guide in this in-depth course where we pay attention to all dimensions of pain and what role essential oils and base oils can play – in a truly holistic approach. The model includes nociception, pain sensation, pain perception and pain behavior. It provides a good guide for the treatment of pain. Treatment may focus on influencing nociception with analgesic or anti-inflammatory essential oils, or on pain sensation with cooling or rather circulation improving oils. But of course we can also help patients perceive their pain differently and positively influence pain behavior by helping them be less anxious and tense, to relax, unwind and/or help them see how they can help themselves through relaxation exercises, accompanied by essential oils. Patients with pain deserve a holistic approach to all aspects of pain.
