If your answer is a definite ‘yes’, I will be very happy to see you at my intensive course in Seattle in October this year, organized by Cynthia Tan.

These 4 days of Fusion AromaTherapy™ offers you the very best of aromatics – conventional essential oils and CO2 extracts – to improve quality of life for cancer patients and those in palliative care as well as quality of dying for patients at the last stages of life and their loved ones.

Day 1: Fusion AromaTherapy™ for skin-  and wound care

Skin care in optima forma. We take a closer look at different skin issues is palliative stages, such as optimum care for the compromised skin, wounds and wound care, bed sores, itching, etc. Learn which base oils and other basic compounds are (proven) effective and which essential oils and CO2 extracts can be used to relieve symptoms and help the healing process of scars and wounds, or alleviate symptoms significantly, when curative treatment is no longer an option.

Day 2: Fusion AromaTherapy™ for pain

The pain model of Loeser is our guide in this in-depth class where we pay attention to all dimensions of pain and which essential oils and base oils can be beneficial. You will also learn about the important role CO2 extracts can play in combating pain.

Day 3: More symptom relief in oncology and palliative care with Fusion AromaTherapy™

Oncology patients and patients in palliative and terminal stages often suffer from symptoms that can have a detrimental effect on their quality of life. Think of nausea, mouth problems, dyspnoea, abdominal complaints or constipation. For people receiving curative treatment who are on meds such as chemotherapy end/or steroids, your choices could be slightly different than for those in palliative stages, where the aim is maximum symptom relief rather than aggressive approaches.

In this intensive day we look at essential oils that have proven to be most effective for a variety of important symptoms and how to use them.

Day 4: Fusion AromaTherapy™  addressing emotional and spiritual well being for the ill and dying

When confronted with a life threatening and/or life shortening illness people often feel like they are on an emotional roller coaster. Their lives will never be really the same again. Many suffer from anxiety, feelings of depression or even despair and often sleep disorders. Intensive treatments, increasing weakness, or loss of independence or dignity can have a major impact on patients and their relatives. Depending on their individual personality and perception of their own meaning-of-life many people start asking themselves questions. These questions may vary from “why me?” Some people wonder what the meaning of their existence is or will have been, or why they are being “punished”. This last day of the course is devoted to the most beautiful essential oils and CO2 extracts that can be of great benefit for those in search of balance and emotional and spiritual well being.
