Sylla’s Latest Lessons in Self-Care

Sylla’s Latest Lessons in Self-Care

Everyone always wants to know why we have yet to put our programs online, allowing more students to study with us. We always say it’s because we have way too much fun in class.

(We do have a secret plan in place to bring the Atlantic Institute to you … Have you heard about the Inner Sanctum?)

We enjoy aromatherapy so much that we created a series of classes where beginning students can journey with us as we study oils and the healing process—all the while making wonderful-smelling goodies to use at home.

Last year was the first year we offered the Aromatherapy Beginner’s Course and Training, created by Linda Byington and myself. Since we have so much fun together, I asked Sylla to attend. Believe it or not, she walked away with some surprising insights.

Sylla’s Insights

Here, Sylla shares about her experience. Though it is personal, it is also universal. Watch and find out:

  • How the synergistic energy of a group helped her identify how to better her health
  • What three oils helped her to complete the final stages of a project
  • Her new favorite self-care tool (NOT aromatherapy) and why she’s so excited about it! 

There’s also a slightly embarrassing mother-daughter moment at the end. One of the many joys of running a family business!

Let us know what your go-to tools are for self-care these days and leave a comment. We love inspiring greater health in our community, virtual or in-person. We all live on this beautiful planet together, so let’s do so harmoniously, both inside and out.

Aromatically Yours,

Transform Your Practice with the Energetics of Essential Oils

Transform Your Practice with the Energetics of Essential Oils

 

The Atlantic Institute of Aromatherapy is thrilled to be pairing with Master Herbalist Peter Holmes (L.Ac, M.H.) for the Energetic Uses of Essential Oils workshop this Sept. 27-28!

The workshop will be at the fabulous Lido Beach Resort (700 Ben Franklin Dr. Sarasota, FL 34236).

Peter is a British-trained Medical Herbalist and practitioner of Oriental Medicine with over 30 years’ experience using botanical remedies and essential oils in clinical practice. His accessible, experiential lecturing style will allow you to grasp a deeper understanding of this branch of aromatherapy, which will in turn boost your practice!

But why should you incorporate the energetics of essential oils into your treatments?

Here’s why:

Essential oils and aromatherapy are very complex. They require a lot of study to understand the components and select the oils that will give your clients the best results. But if you understand the concepts of energy medicine and apply those to your selection of essential oils, you have a better chance of finding the right oil or oils to use for complex conditions.

This is especially true when there are mental or emotional issues blocking your clients from experiencing the positive effects of treatment. Finding one oil that resonates with your client on an energetic level can boost your results from “okay” to “excellent.”

In this context, essential oils are actually similar to acupoints and reflex zones, in that the oils are electromagnetic and governed by the universal laws of energy flow. You can use essential oil energetics both through inhalation and by applying directly onto body zones and points. Once put into effect, the oils will modulate neuroendocrine functions through neuropeptide activation, without putting any strain on the digestive system.

The result? Profound energetic changes in the individual, which you can directly measure by changes in pulse, breathing, and the client’s overall complexion.

The seminar will include a fresh, dynamic approach to using essential oils for treatment based on integrated energetic principles—and the reasons why this approach works. Peter will also provide practical information about the energetics of essential oils, so you can start using the techniques right away.

Energetics of essential oils are highly complementary to conventional aromatherapy, bodywork, energetic healing, and so much more.

By incorporating energetics into your practice, you’ll boost your chances of seeing true and lasting change in your clients.

The Value of Live Aromatherapy Education

The Value of Live Aromatherapy Education

The greatest thing about our aromatherapy classes at the Atlantic Institute is the value of the live experience. Learning together, students bond over the sensory experience of the oils. What’s more is after a few days, someone always cries! Fortunately, this is a good thing. It’s a release, a sharing, and a breakthrough. Most importantly, this allows them to experience deep healing and become better therapists.

It seems impossible to get this through an online course. This is why we focus on offering live classes.

Often people study the healing they need in their own lives. For instance, someone growing up with acne may become a dermatologist. Others enter the psychology field to help themselves with an issue. Likewise, the same is true with aromatherapy. There’s something about the oils that travels deep within us and evokes a profound response. Undoubtedly, the oils speak to us on an emotional level. It is wonderful to experience them in a group setting, especially where one is supported on their journey.

We love connecting with our students on a personal level. We hope to someday connect with you.
