Introduction for Complementary Care

Aroma Care in Complementary Practice for Pain and Dementia

We are introducing Madeline Kerkhof's approach to Complementary Care with Aroma and plant  Medicine... It's a great Class to participate in.. hear what this will be all about!! Class coming up in a couple of weeks. Click the button below!

Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, and spiritual.

 … not synonymous with terminal care

The holistic concept of man

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

Integrative medicine is an integrated approach to health and disease that recognizes the interaction between body and mind as being involved in the prevention of and recovery from disease

Integrative Care is provided by nurses and other professionals which includes complementary care

It is caring for the whole person in all aspects making use of all forms of care, including complementary and alternative care, best practice, safe, evidence and/or experience-based, provided by qualified and competent caregivers,  rather care than cure.  The focus is on the patient vs on the diagnosis, aimed at optimal wellbeing, the quality of life, and the quality of dying.  - Madeline Kerkhoff

– Aroma Care vs  Aromatherapy –

The care we want to achieve by using the aromatic and plant-derived materials from nature – providing complementary care and promote the wellbeing of the care recipients.

This Basic course in Aromatherapy gives you the opportunity to learn some of the insides of this amazing field.. and yes - there is much more than meets the eye.  The objective is to give you a solid platform that can be the basis for you to be able to blend and utilize the oils and their blends safely and effectively.

You will learn Plants and their Families, Where/How/What is the Resource, History of Ancient and Modern Aromatherapy, The Applications, A Deep look at Eight Essential Oils to get you started, The Beauty of Blending and The Safety.

We will work with the information through eight modules, where you will get hands-on instruction/recipes, methods of use, guidelines for safety/quality of essential oils, along with important resources.

Interested in the used of essential oils but not sure where to start?  Ready to take your expertise to the next level? Just want some practical uses on how to incorporate oils into your daily life? Wherever you are on your journey, Patricia will meet with you to offer her expertise and guidance to achieve your goals.

One hour private, one-on-one consultation to address questions you have about the use and benefits of essential oils for your personal or professional use and/or create a natural treatment plan that is expressly for you.

I am dedicated to providing education, healing services and research in the art and science of Plant Medicine. My objective is to empower people, working in partnership with them to encourage their inner healing wisdom. Aromatherapy is a powerful method to support our body in its healing journey, both for ourselves, our family, our community and our planet. In this day and age, we are flooded with information – which is not always accurate or properly researched.  Essential oils are powerful, potent medicines, that must be understood along with other modalities and sensitivities. There are many indicators often overlooked and can ultimately cause some challenges, if not properly understood.

This education is open to anyone.  Whether you're brand new to essential oils or have been using them for a long time; Whether you are a part of an organization that sells oils, or not, it matters not. I am not affiliated with any one supplier or label, I am merely dedicated to serving my students and clients with the highest level of education, and the highest level of therapeutic grade essential oils, aromatic oils, tinctures and herbs.

I offer educational classes covering a wide variety of topics in and around Herbalism, which include Aromatic Waters, Creams, Essential Oils, Carrier Oils, Blending Essentials, Safe Use of oils for children, Culinary aromatherapy, and more.

My classes and course are designed to help you become an aromatherapy practitioner on any level, from personal use to professional abilities to add to your practice or to begin a business doing consulting or selling essential oils.
