Fusion AromaTherapy™ and Pain
Guest Instructor: MADELEINE KERKHOF
Fusion Aromatherapy™ and Pain is a journey into the world of integrated approaches towards pain at all levels. The pain model of Loeser is our guide in this in-depth course where we pay attention to all dimensions of pain and what role essential oils and base oils can play – in a truly holistic approach. The model includes nociception, pain sensation, pain perception and pain behavior. It provides a good guide for the treatment of pain. Treatment may focus on influencing nociception with analgesic or anti-inflammatory essential oils, or on pain sensation with cooling or rather circulation improving oils. But of course we can also help patients perceive their pain differently and positively influence pain behavior by helping them be less anxious and tense, to relax, unwind and/or help them see how they can help themselves through relaxation exercises, accompanied by essential oils. Patients with pain deserve a holistic approach to all aspects of pain.

Fusion AromaTherapy™ is Madeleine Kerkhof ’s integrative approach to aromatherapy, using conventional essential oils, base oils, compounds and CO2 extracts.
ABOUT THE COURSE
Patients with pain deserve a holistic approach to all aspects of pain. That is why complementary therapies can be of great benefit to them.
If your professional work in health care also includes a basic knowledge of essential oils in aromatherapy, you may find great value for specialized knowledge on how essential oils and CO2 extracts can be of significant benefit for people suffering from pain. The quality of holistic care and quality of life (and even of dying) for people suffering from pain can be assisted with what you will learn from one of the world’s leading aromatherapy educators in her fields of expertise.
In this course Madeleine will take you on a journey into the world of integrated approaches towards pain at all levels and all dimensions of pain and the role essential oils and base oils can play – in a truly holistic approach.
DAY 1: Introduction – Fusion AromaTherapy™
On this first day Madeleine will take you on a fascinating journey into the process of CO2 extraction.
CO2 extracts fuse very well into conventional aromatherapy. We explore how we can use CO2 extracts in practical Fusion AromaTherapy™. We look at application methods, and how to overcome challenges in blending, working with very viscous extracts.
DAY 2: Fusion AromaTherapy™ for Pains and Aches
Pain can be a symptom of a disease or a warning sign that something isn’t quite right. We distinguish the depth of pain and different types of pain, also how to measure pain in different ways. We also discuss the causes of pain, the mechanisms we can address, and our limitations. We look at several approaches for different types of pain.
DAY 3: Fusion AromaTherapy™ for Painful Skin Issues
We look at skin care, on painful skin issues and several types of wounds.
DAY 4: Fusion AromaTherapy™ for Emotional and Spiritual Pain
And we look at a holistic approach to patient well-being to support our clients at the highest levels of being. Pain and the perception of pain are highly influenced by their emotional and spiritual status. CO2 extracts offer the most exquisite fragrances, directly appealing to our emotions, instincts and memories.
