Complementary Therapy Courses
from Allen & Walden, Kent College of Beauty Therapy

If you wish to gain an internationally recognised aromatherapy qualification this is the course for you. Successful completion of our aromatherapy course will enable you to insure with any company. If your aim is to work in the industry salon, spa, run your own business and maybe one day even teach aromatherapy this course is fully recognised in all areas. We are a nationally accredited independent private college. Our course is student led  and offers a well structured course that is not fast tracked into consecutive sessions.

We are not to be confused with salons/home based training where you will be issued with a certificate that is insurable with one company and  not recognised in the national government framework of qualifications (QCF) . Beware courses that claim to meet National Occupational Standards (NOS) but do not actually deliver the qualification that is recognised internationally.

During our Aromatherapy Course you will learn how to select, blend and safely use essential oils to suit your clients needs and provide a relaxing healing aromatherapy massage.

Aromatherapy involves using the therapeutic benefits of Essential Oils and utilising these properties to produce massage blends, creams, lotions, sprays and vapours to produce their effects on the body. Aromatherapy is possibly the most  versatile massage course and one which can be used by itself or  integrated with other therapies and treatment modalities such as Sports  Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Indian Head Massage & Reflexology.
Our Aromatherapy courses are taught by professional and practising  Aromatherapists who are all trained above the taught level and who are  passionate about the subject.  Each Aromatherapy course lecturer will  impart a wealth of information from their own experience.
