An aromatherapy treatment consultation record
The client therapist relationship remains the bedrock of aromatherapy and of quality and consistency in professional aromatherapy treatments and advice. Clients can observe the direct benefits of treatments such as for arthritis and joint pain or a blotchy or wart affected complexion. If they couldnt they would not continue them and aromatherapy would not have the positive image among the public it has maintained for these four decades.
However we must keep up the standard established by our founders. The more knowledgeable the therapist the more confidence a client will have in their treatment and that confidence in the therapist and the restoration of their personal wellbeing is at the core of aromatherapy's effectiveness. To take a confused and bewildered individual from isolation and self harm to a feeling that they are an individual of infinite worth who deserves to be well and happy is perhaps the oils greatest gift and the therapists greatest reward.
May I wish you another enjoyable year of aromatherapy
