I'm excited to announce that I am now a Level 1 Certified Aromatherapist through the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA).
This means that I have submitted my educational credentials for review and have met the requirements for certification by completing an approved aromatherapy training program, including the completion of coursework in Anatomy & Physiology.
So what is NAHA, anyway? I'm glad you asked! They are a non-profit organization that is actively involved with promoting and elevating academic standards in aromatherapy education and practice standards for the profession. They are devoted to increasing the public's knowledge and understanding of aromatherapy and its safe and effective application in everyday life.
In short, NAHA is an important organization in the aromatherapy world because they stress safety, quality education, and accountability for their member practitioners and this not only benefits aromatherapists in their role as educators, but also you as the consumer. After all, aromatherapy can only be a helpful tool on the journey to wellness if it is practiced safely and in a manner that offers the highest benefits to each individual based on his or her unique situation.
As a Certified Aromatherapist, I will now be offering aromatherapy consultations to assist clients on their journey to wellness.
Wondering what an aromatherapy consultation consists of? First let me explain that this type of consultation is not health-care related as I'm not a licensed healthcare professional and cannot diagnose or treat any health conditions. You might view aromatherapy as an extra boost to complement your already-established measures of self-care. During a consultation, we will discuss the issue(s) you would like to address, your health background (including any medications you may currently be using), and the goals you would like to achieve through the use of aromatherapy. We will discuss which essential oils would be appropriate for your individual situation and which usage methods would be most suited for you, based on your preferences and daily activities. Together, we will create an aromatherapy plan that is specific to you and your unique needs.
If you have been properly diagnosed by a healthcare professional and are seeking additional support for chronic health issues, a recently diagnosed short-term illness, or troubles such as anxiety, insomnia, or minor depression, aromatherapy may be right for you! At this time, I am limiting my services to adults who are 18 years of age or older and I will not be offering services to pregnant women due to the many extra precautions that must be taken for the health and safety of the developing baby.
Consultations will be priced at $30 for the first session, plus the cost of your individualized aromatherapy product. Follow-up sessions for the same issue will be priced at $15. I can be contacted via Facebook Messenger or by email at DancingBeeShop@gmail.com for further details or if you have questions. I look forward to assisting you on your journey to wellness!
