Clinical aromatherapy consultation

Post by Dragonflies » Mon May 24, 2010 5:03 am

I'd love to hear from some clinical aromatherapists on how you conduct your consultations. If you also provide other services (i.e. forms of bodywork, movement therapies, acupuncture, etc...), do you integrate the two therapies?

Here's what I've gathered so far on a clinical consult:
- health history, lifestyle, aromatic preferences intake
- oil selection
- inhalation therapy
- option to purchase products with specific oil(s) selected during the consult

I don't do clinical consultations yet, but will eventually be doing so when I get far enough along in my herbal studies. I am very eager to learn how "complementary, but different" (as in, not under the same scope of practice) forms of CAM can be synched into the same practice.

From talking to my CPA about it (therefore, from his standpoint), I think I understand that the two (bodywork and consultation) would need to be BILLED separately, even if you do the consultation in conjunction with/as an add-on to the bodywork session. Heh- he was even talking about my herbal consultation "business" renting a room from the massage business.....

Huh, I hadn't thought about treating aromatherapy consults like herbal consults but it just might work!

Hmmm, I've never been a fan of MLM companies or of the courses they offer - always looking to make a bigger buck. Personally I'd be very skeptical going into something like that.

Well, it just seems to make sense to me, because aromatherapy typically comes from herbs, right? And also, you're targeting many of the same issues, only through the aromatherapy (a more "external" route) as opposed to having your clients ingest herbs. A lot of herbal therapy includes aromatherapy. There's a lady here (in my local area) who teaches many different aromatherapy and reflexology classes. I don't see "integrating aromatherapy into an existing CAM practice" listed as one of her courses, though. Hummm- perhaps that might be a grand "niche" for an enterprising teacher!
