Harmonizing the Spirit:
2-day Advanced Certificate (CPD) Seminar with Gabriel Mojay
In this 2-day seminar, Gabriel Mojay addresses the aromatic and acupressure treatment of clients with a range of common psychological health conditions through the synergistic benefits of essential oils and acupoint massage.
As a firm foundation, he shares with participants an intuitive yet practical framework of mental-emotional health assessment based on the time-honored theory of the Oriental Five Elements. Classifying conditions according to disharmonies of the Mind (Earth), Heart (Fire), Soul (Wood), Will (Water) and Vital Spirit (Metal), Gabriel provides practitioners with a basic TCM-diagnostic approach that both encompasses and transcends medical diagnoses such as clinical depression and generalised anxiety disorder.
Gabriel applies this approach to aromatherapy by considering the fragrance dynamics, traditional therapeutics and primary research evidence associated with a number of major essential oils and their aromatic plants, elucidating their psychological properties and uses in a way that links mind and body, science and energetics. For example, the pungent-herbaceous fragrance energy of essential oil of Rosmarinus officinalis ct. camphor reflects its ability to tonify the Qi-energy of the bodymind, and especially of the Heart and Shen (consciousness). This in turn is borne out by the essential oil’s evidence-based capacity for enhancing cognition and mood, and for countering memory decline and depression.
Massaging appropriately diluted rosemary essential oil along the Heart Meridian, and into Acupoint Heart-5 (Tongli) in particular, amplifies the oil’s neurocardiac stimulant-restorative effect. As part of the seminar, Gabriel introduces participants to the use of acupoint massage and his Aromatic Acupressure technique; and for each essential oil studied, explores the location and treatment of a major acupoint with which it shares key synergistic actions.Learn More & Register!
