GAIA AromaReflex Online Live Class

GAIA AromaReflex Online Live Class
(Aromatherapy for Reflexologists)

led by Carolyn Roberts, Principal of the Gaia School of Natural Health.

This is an AoR approved CPD course.

Suitable for reflexologists with a qualification in reflexology as recognised by the Association of Reflexologists (or equivalent in other countries) with little or no previous knowledge/experience of aromatherapy. Student reflexologists nearing the end of their recognised qualification are also welcome to attend.

You will learn about aromatherapy and be introduced to 12 specific essential oils and their safe use. You will be shown how to make up a foot cream or wax blend for use in your reflexology treatments or for your clients to use at home. The workshop will also cover other ways that aromatherapy may be incorporated into your reflexology practice.

Balens and Boswell insurance have confirmed that they will accept this certificate in order to insure reflexologists to use these named oils in their treatments. In order to satisfy CPD training requirements you will be required to submit 5 follow up treatments in order to obtain your certificate.

It is a live interactive course with your tutor, with places limited to 6 per session to ensure individual attention, and live feedback.

Bank notice - Paying via BACS

Since June 2020 we have had a few customers express concern that their UK bank was advising them that it might not be safe to proceed with payment to Gaia School of Natural Health's (GSNH) business bank account, as their UK bank was unable to verify the payee's name with the account sort code and account number entered. This is a new process of "confirmation of Payee" which most of the major UK banks have signed up to implementing, in order to mitigate fraud.

Unfortunately not all UK banks have yet adapted their systems for this to work. GSNH's bank The Co-operative Bank Plc is one such UK bank and is scheduled to update their systems sometime before the end of 2020. Consequently, if your UK Bank has got the system up and running it is likely to highlight the risk of sending money to an account where the name of the account holder is not verified, and the message will identify to you, that any monies paid out will not be refunded if lost or stolen.

From the GSNH perspective, the sort code and account number identified during the booking process is correct and valid. We can not advise you to disregard your UK bank's warning, but with commonsense in mind, you may wish to continue through the payment process by making a notional payment (eg. 1p or £1) which GSNH can confirm receipt of. Once we have confirmed the receipt of this small payment you may then proceed with confidence to send the remaining balance. Alternatively you may prefer to select the cheque payment method.

Hopefully this notice will alleviate some of your concerns and make you aware of the existence of this new payment verification process, and reassure you that the bank details supplied by GSNH during the online booking form process are correct and legitimate; allowing you to proceed to make payment as normal.

If you have any further concerns about making payments to GSNH, please let us know via the contact form

AromaReflex Testimonials

”Just wanted to say thank you for your lovely training session, I think it was one of the most calming training sessions i've done! Really enjoyed it. Plenty of information to take in and continue studying and the cream is lovely. The oils are wonderful too, so much to it. Looking forward to completing my case studies and will be in touch when I have all completed.“
Nikki Curristan (Slainte Natural Health Centre) 24-Nov-20

”Brilliant course. I am passionate about reflexology and this has given me even more enthusiasm. I love my new skill and wish I could do more online learning with Gaia. I loved it. Thank you Carolyn......Carolyn is a great tutor. Calm, interesting and knowledgeable. “
Ally Brown 27-Aug-20

”This was a fabulous course. Well structured, informative and no travelling. Carolyn made us feel supported and I can honestly say I enjoyed it more than any ’in person‘ class.“ as well as being ”the most productive CPD course I've done. “
Amy Vere (Sole to Soul) 21-Jul-20

”Attending Carolyn’s recent course was an absolute joy. It was held on Zoom which meant no travel costs for me. The course material, sent via email beforehand, was very thorough. The course was cleverly interactive, and allowed for discussion and reflection between the delegates. I loved learning about the oils, and finished the course with one blend made and a head full of ideas for the future. I can’t wait to share the wonderful world of aromatherapy with my clients, and look forwards to bringing a new dimension to my treatments. Many thanks Carolyn for a fantastic course – I really can’t recommend it highly enough. “
Andrea Cooper (Orchard Reflexology) 22-May-20

”I took part in the online aroma reflexology training, and I found the whole day to be really informative and interactive. It’s been great to be able to access this training from home, as I live a long way from the Gaia School of Natural Health, and so I would not usually be able to access the courses in person.
I feel that I gained the confidence, from the initial input, to carry out my case studies and I am inspired to learn more about the 12 essential oils and all of their properties.
I would definitely take part in more online training with Carolyn in the future. “
Sarah Vaughan (Natural Reflexions) 22-May-20

”Carolyn’s AromaReflex course provides an excellent and well informed introduction to aroma therapy and how it can be incorporated into your reflexology treatment. The course is delivered online and Carolyn makes it very interactive and easy to follow. She has a wealth of knowledge that she is eager to share. She enables to you to learn and put into practice throughout the day as you are being taught. A thoroughly enjoyable day that provides the tools and inspiration you need to get started. Carolyn follows this up with excellent online support. Fantastic and highly recommended! “
Gillaine Casciaro 22-May-20

”Really enjoyed Carolyn’s AromaReflex Online Zoom Training Course, it worked really well online, as I'm not great with technology, but found it very easy to access. Content and teaching was great as always and Carolyn is always there to answer any queries. A very enjoyable, informative course and look forward to using it in the future. “
Sarah Cliffe (Holistic Therapist) 01-May-20

”I thoroughly enjoyed the Zoom AromaReflex workshop with Carolyn. The pre workshop instructions and equipment list ensured we had the correct material for the course, giving us a choice of good quality oils and retailers with recommendations that we could tailor to suit our own budgets.
The day itself was broken down into segments with well planned breaks to digest what we had learnt. The course content was really informative, with a varied and useful mixture of textbook reading, Carolyn's knowledge and experience alongside group discussion. The small group size meant that everyone had their opportunity to speak and ask questions without too much overlap (as can happen in Zoom meetings!) and the breakout rooms where we partnered up and completed virtual consultations before mixing blends was a perfect opportunity to demonstrate what we had learnt. I would highly recommend Carolyn's AromaReflex workshop! “
Erica Davies 01-May-20

”Having trained at Gaia school for my level 5 reflexology qualification, I had no hesitation in booking on the AromaReflex training despite being unfamiliar with online training - I felt I would be in safe hands with Carolyn. It was a comprehensive and enjoyable day with a good balance of theory and practical. We still had the opportunity to work as a group and in pairs, with Carolyn at hand to guide and advise. I now feel confident in working with the 12 essential oils and I’m really looking forward to incorporating bespoke blends into my reflexology treatments. “
Vicki Mullin (Vicki Mullin Reflexology) 22-May-20

”I just wanted to send you a quick email to say that I am finding this course absolutely fascinating!!
Learning about the oils in itself is great but the results so far are incredible. I have completed the first two treatments - 1 being a client who was suffering from bladder stones and constant pain. The pain stopped after the 2nd application of the cream having had a full reflexology treatment, and it has not reoccurred. “
