Massage and Aromatherapy
We use massage and aromatherapy for pupils and young people to augment their already tailored curriculum. Aromatherapy is carried out by one of our Specialist Support Assistants who is a trained and qualified Aromatherapist.
The aim of the Aromatherapist is to develop a trusting and open path of communication with the pupil to enable both to engage in a shared experience. We find that pupils with complex communication needs gain a great deal from this approach.
The Aromatherapist is also able to support the pupil’s concentration and attention span; to stimulate or relax the pupil’s limbs and, in some cases, improve the pupil’s general wellbeing.
