2) Recently you've included "Vibrational Medicine" in your teaching. What can students expect to learn?
Vibrational Medicine is one of the subjects in the Asia Pacific Aromatherapy Holistic Diploma Course. It is aimed to invite the students to consider the different principles between orthodox medicine and vibrational medicine. Leading students to the awareness of different forms of well-practiced vibrational medicine, such as flower essences and homeopathy. Introducing the concept of the human energy system in different traditions, including chakras and meridians. Through exercises, the students can explore the existence of energy fields of the body. It is a fun and mind-opening learning experience.
3) Your are one of APA's massage tutors in the Holistic Diploma Course - what is your most important tip you give your students?
It is important to practice therapeutic touch, where sensitivity, care and respect are present. It requires one to pay full attention to the body while giving a massage, to interact with the body in a relaxing and nurturing way. When the body and mind are able to relax, then it is possible to facilitate the body to heal itself.
It is equally important for the students to learn taking care of themselves, such as maintaining a good posture and breathing properly when giving massage, to observe and address their stresses and needs when going through changes, fine tuning a positive attitude and discipline to turn challenges into opportunities for growth and learning.
From a holistic view, it takes into consideration the well-being of all aspects of a human being, whether it is physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. To facilitate others to restore wellness and health, therapists/caretakers would be more of assistance if mindful about taking care of themselves and bringing their own wellness and health into balance.
