If you wish to upgrade to FULL MEMBERSHIP of the IFA, you can apply to be assessed by an IFA Recognised Trainer. They will discuss your requirements and an agreed amount will be charged according to the level of guidance needed. The following guidelines will give you an idea of what is involved in the upgrade and help you match your current levels of training with those of the IFA.

50 hours contact supervision and 100 hours unsupervised study (set work)


IFA REQUIREMENTS FOR BASIC TRAINING in BODY MASSAGE& BUSINESS STUDIES:

Hours set for unsupervised massage study cannot form part of the stated minimum hours set down for contact supervision and massage training with the teacher. Basic massage routine to cover the entire body & face and will not exceed 1 hour (excluding preparation time, oral & written consultation) Students must know terminology, benefits & contraindications for a basic massage treatment.
IFA REQUIREMENTS FOR BASIC TRAINING in AROMATHERAPY:

120 hours contact supervision and 240 hours unsupervised study (set work)



Students to provide evidence of at least 50 practical sessions with case studies. There must be a minimum of 5 clients having a minimum of 5 sessions each and the remaining 25 sessions are unrestricted. A “session” is to be a minimum of 1 hour. The hours set aside for Home Study cannot be considered as any part of the total supervised course hours stated and required by the IFA. The 120 hours contact supervision is limited to Aromatherapy (practical & theory) only. Other complementary therapies such as Shiatsu, Reflexology, Neuro-muscular techniques, Bach flower Remedies, Reiki etc. are not considered to be part of Aromatherapy training.
The main difference between the IFA and other governing bodies is that we uphold a system of external examinations as a means of guaranteeing and maintaining high standards of training and practice. Our written papers include wider questions on subjects that are very much part of being a professional practitioner, including Ethics, Business Planning & Employment, First Aid, Safety at Work, Self Care. Our examinations are invigilated, marked and assessed by highly qualified and experienced IFA examiners.

Extraction: Essential oil by cold expression of the peel of the freshly picked nearly ripe fruit (miniature orange). A rectified or terpeneless oil is produced by vacuum distillation or solvent extraction. Oil pressed from oil bearing glands on surface of the peel. 100 kilos of fruit yield approx 500gr of essence, the remaining pulp is used in making citric acid.

Chemical Constituents: Known to have about 300 compounds present in the expressed oil: mainly linalyl acetate (30 – 60%), linalool (11 – 22%) and other alcohols, sesquiterpenes, terpenes, alkanes and furocoumarins (including bergapten, 0.30 – 0.39%).

Aromatherapy Uses:

Its an excellent antiseptic and is useful where the skin is sensitive eg thrush, psoriasis (max 1%), eczema, insect bites, acne, boils, spots, varicose ulcers, wounds. Suits combination and oily skin types. Bergamot and Eucalyptus – good for cold sores (anti-viral).

Respiratory System: Halitosis, mouth infections, sore throat, tonsillitis.

Digestive System: Good for flatulence and indigestion, helps regulate appetite therefore can help with anorexia nervosa.

Furo Coumarin Free (FCF) will not photo sensitise. “Exposure to sunlight is alright after one hour” (S. Price) For skin conditions use with lavender or geranium. Antiseptic and healing to oily skin conditions especially when linked to stress. Inhibits certain viruses – Herpes Simplex 1 – cold sores, shingles, chicken pox. Used in Italian folk medicine primarily for fevers including malaria and worms. Used extensively in the perfume industry (eau de cologne) and to flavour Earl Grey tea.
