Course Description:

Essential oils are everywhere these days and chances are your patients are using them or aware of them. Essential oils can be a valuable adjunct to therapy when one is aware of the safety, evidence, properties, and qualities of essential oils. This course will investigate the science behind essential oils and how to use them to modulate pain, address and support women’s health issues, stress, sleep, mood, immune support and prevent practitioner burn out 

Course Objectives:

  3. To understand the College of Physiotherapist’s position on the use of essential oils and over the counter supplements in clinical practice.
  4. To understand and be able to apply the 2 main ways essential oils are used: Aromatically and Topically.  N.B.  Internal use will be discussed, but it is beyond a physiotherapist’s scope of practice.
