Aromatherapy is one of the fastest growing alternative therapies and offers innumerable health benefits for physical, mental, and emotional health, said an expert in this field during a recent presentation at Maharishi European Research University (MERU) in the Netherlands. It is a holistic approach that has no side effects.
Dr Rosie Geelvink, Director of the Department of Maharishi Aromatherapy, Maharishi College of Perfect Health, Netherlands, has had many years of study, research, and experience in aromatherapy. She explained that aromatherapy means much more than enjoying a nice fragrance in the room from an aroma lamp, or enjoying a nicely scented cosmetic
Maharishi Aromatherapy uses only the highest quality, pure organic VedAroma essential oils. The oils, made from organic plant material, are processed and distilled in a special way in order to have the best therapeutic effects.
Maharishi Aromatherapy encompasses much more than does traditional aromatherapy. It is part of Maharishi Ayur-Veda natural health care, and uses essentials oils according to the fundamental principles of Maharishi Ayur-Veda.
In Maharishi Ayur-Veda and Maharishi Aromatherapy the aim is to enliven consciousness, the inner intelligence of body and mind, in order to restore wholeness and balance that leads to perfect health. Maharishi Ayurveda says a healthy person is one who is established in the Self—Swastha. Swa means the Self, and Stha means established.
The Department of Aromatherapy at Maharishi College of Perfect Health has been training consultants in Maharishi Aromatherapy for several years. Around the globe a total of 162 students from 44 countries and all continents have taken the two-week training course, designed by Dr Geelvink.
The eighth Maharishi Aromatherapy Consultant Training course concluded recently at MERU in Holland, graduating 18 participants hailing from 12 countries and 5 continents.
Dr Geelvink explained that the course trains consultants to use essential oils in terms of balancing three fundamental biological principles, or Doshas—Vata, Pitta and Kapha—that govern the body. Vata oils, for example, are balancing, calming, relaxing, and harmonizing for the physiology, mind, and emotions. Pitta pacifying oils reduce heat in the mind and body, and have a cooling, relaxing influence. Kapha balancing oils are stimulating—they increase energy, and enliven the mind and body.
The purpose of the course is to train participants in techniques to enliven the inner intelligence of body and mind and promote holistic health and well-being through the use of the pure VedAroma essential oils.
On the successful completion of the training the graduate has gained the knowledge to:
∙ Prescribe Vedaroma essential oils according to the principles of Maharishi Ayur-Veda for restoring wholeness and balance to body, mind, and emotions.
∙ Help alleviate specific health conditions for medical doctors and other qualified health practitioners.
∙ Administer a 30-minute introductory Maharishi Aromatherapy treatment that includes diffusing specific VedAroma essential oils and the local application of selected oils.
