Massage Professionals Update

Earn credits through articles you've already read in our Massage Professionals Update e-newsletter.

Discover various therapeutic uses for essential oils. Combining four articles written especially for the Institute's Massage Professionals Update E-newsletter, this brief program will provide insights into:

  • Tips for maintaining essential oils.
  • Essential oils for digestive complaints.
  • The use of essential oils for easing the discomfort of sciatica.
  • Using aromatherapy as an alternative to conventional head lice treatments.

In the Essential Oils & Therapeutic Uses program we've combined four articles written especially for the Institute's Massage Professionals Update. These four articles include:

  • Five Tips on Essential Oil Maintenance - Although essential oils typically lack an expiration date stamp, their effectiveness can diminish with element exposure and time. However, therapists can easily learn how to prolong the life of their oils and detect when they are no longer viable.
  • Essential Oils for Digestive Ailments - Learn which essential oils used during a bodywork session can help alleviate many of the most common digestive complaints.
  • Essential Oils Assist in Reducing Sciatica - While the term sciatica is still used occasionally by the general public to describe leg pain that radiates down from the hip, it is not a term used as much in modern day health care, because the many possible causes of this annoying and sometimes debilitating pain are attributed to several origins other than sciatic nerve impingement. Learn how the use of essential oils can help to ease the discomfort of this age-old complaint.
  • Aromatherapy: Effective Treatment for Head Lice - Being educated about the irritating parasites you and your family members may bring home from work or school is the best form of protection. See how aromatherapy can offer a unique and effective way of treating unwelcome head lice.

You can either read the articles by clicking on any of the titles above or upon enrollment you'll be able to access these articles and your online test through your online course account.

Course Objectives

  • Explain how to safely maintain the quality of essential oils including how to purchase, store and retain viability.
