Course Description

Therapeutic Bathing

 

Turn your hygiene rituals into a therapeutic health treatment with a variety of products and techniques
 

No curriculum in natural or alternative healthcare, herbal medicine, homeopathy or holistic healing is complete without an introduction to the surprisingly broad subject of Therapeutic Bathing.

 

When you think of a therapeutic bath, it's likely that you envision some steaming hot water and your favorite scented bath oil or bubblesand that's about it. Next time to you hop in the tub, benefit from the experience of centuries of therapeutic bathers. That's right--therapeutic bathing has its place in just about every ancient culture: the Romans, the Greeks, the Chinese, the Egyptians and the Middle East have all made contributions to the practice of bathing for improved health and well-being.

 

And now, by taking a cue from these innovators, you'll be surprised at just how many ways there are to increase your enjoyment and reap greater benefits from your bath. In this course, you'll learn about the benefits of minerals and heat and how to bring the advantages of mineral waters and hot springs home to enjoy in the privacy of your home. You'll get an introduction not just to the joys of aromatherapy, but several recipes for aromatherapy soaps and a bath fizz to enjoy in your next soak.

 

Do you know that there's an ideal temperature range for soaking achy muscles--and that it's different than the ideal temperature for absorbing the healing power of herbs? That's just a glimpse of what awaits you when you enroll in this in-depth course. Go ahead and dip your toe into the healthful, relaxing world of therapeutic bathing!
