We assess what you need to learn and recommend how much more study you need to take. This is assessed on an individual basis. Usually a course of a weeks study is sufficient to prepare the student for the independant examination.

Shirley price Aromatherapy also offers an attractive distance learning course. Successful completion of the course and examination qualifies students to apply for IFPA membership by distance learning.  As this course lacks the practical massage training of the in-house program it does not qualify the student for massage insurance.

Why Organic? Important new study

Shirley Price Aromatherapy has been established for over 40 years gaining an enviable reputation for the quality of its training and products.

Ian Brealey, Managing Director, said "a cornerstone of our quality system is organic agricultural principles and inspections.  Organic plant oils are economical and confer significent health benefits"

Now in the largest study of its kind – led by North East experts – has found significant benefits to organic food.
An international team led by Newcastle University has shown that organic crops are up to 69% higher in a number of key antioxidants than conventionally-grown crops.
Numerous studies have linked antioxidants to a reduced risk of chronic diseases, including cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases and certain cancers.
The study found that a switch to eating organic fruit, vegetable and cereals – and food made from them – would provide additional antioxidants equivalent to eating between one to two extra portions of fruit and vegetables a day.
The study, to be published next week in the prestigious British Journal of Nutrition, also shows significantly lower levels of toxic heavy metals in organic crops.
