Health professionals in Lincolnshire are to be offered a new short course in Clinical Aromatherapy and Reflexology as a response to the growing demand for complementary medicine in the UK.


The University of Lincolnshire & Humberside is to launch the new course which will allow physiotherapists, nurses and other medical professionals to update their skills at higher education level without having to leave the region.


Endorsed by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, the Clinical Aromatherapy and Reflexology short course will begin in September at the new Lincolnshire Institute for Health. 


The institute has been established by the university in partnership with local health organisations to provide continuing professional development short courses and to give health professionals the opportunity for academic and practical study as well as to extend their range of holistic patient assessment techniques.


The programme is modular and flexible to suit the needs of the health profession. Study is by day release, in the evening or at weekends and features on-line tutor support.


“This is the first of many courses to be offered by the institute,” said marketing officer Emma Godsall in the Faculty of Social and Life Sciences. “We’re expecting a great deal of interest as it’s the first time that the region’s health professionals will be able to study at this level on their own doorstep.”
