Event Highlight: Aromatherapy in Cancer Care

Although we wish it wasn’t the case, most people have had cancer touch their lives in some way, whether they are a survivor, caretaker, relative, or friend. 

We are proud to announce that the Aromatherapy Faculty at ACHS will be presenting a special event this November 2021 on the role of Aromatherapy in Cancer Care.

This series of webinar presentations is designed to highlight the current body of research demonstrating the potential aromatherapy has as a complementary part of cancer care. We recognize the value and need for evidence-based information on this topic for students, alumni, aromatherapists, healthcare providers, and the public alike.

If you have had questions about how aromatherapy can safely support individuals who are undergoing cancer care, cancer survivors, or their caregivers, in an evidence-based way, this is the event for you!

This event and all the information presented is for educational purposes only and does not take the place of medical advice or conventional medical treatment. All holistic support should be shared with and approved by an individual’s licensed healthcare professional. 

This event is not designed to provide individual or specific recommendations. Rather it is designed to provide education on the published research and clinical applications of aromatherapy to support individuals undergoing cancer care, their caregivers, and their healthcare providers. We want to empower attendees to be able to share this information with their healthcare providers and hope to foster dialogue and adherence to safe best practices for aromatherapy. Also we hope to empower healthcare professionals to be able to share this body of information with their teams, and employ aromatherapy self care strategies for themselves as well.
