We offer…

An excellent opportunity to enhance your care  for patients in oncology, to help improve quality of life significantly during their journey, help relieve symptoms of the illness and side effects of treatment, support their coping skills and emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

Fusion AromaTherapy™ – is fusing the finest essential oils and the CO2 extracts and base oils – can be of significant help for physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual needs in cancer care. You will be offered tools, blend suggestions and treatment options for massage, mouth- and skincare, to combat nausea, relieve pain and make the most of the best fragrant CO2 extracts and essential oils for anxiety, feelings of depression and loss of perspective and meaning, in crisis times and beyond.

M-Technique® is a method of structured touch. Each movement and sequence is done a set number of times, in a set pattern, at a set pressure and set speed that never change. This makes it extremely easy to learn, and its simplicity and intentions makes the M-Technique a blessing in cancer care. We are currently looking into ways to teach this technique in a high quality online live stream option, supported by DVD and.

Kicozo’s classes are always a combined and holistic approach to health and sickness. We look at the standard medical, nursing and therapeutical care, as much as the complementary approach. We also give background information on symptoms, and the occurrence of side effects of treatment, such as pain, nausea, oral infections and pain, skin and nail issues, etc.
Of course a large proportion of this course is devoted to help empower patients and their loved ones who often suffer from anxiety and worries, sleeplessness, being in an emotional and spiritual rollercoaster and feelings of grief and loss of control.

You will learn about the science behind essential oils and base oils, and also how important CO2 extracts can be in the treatment of certain symptoms. You will be able to use high quality oils and base products and make your own blend(s), and/or receive an extensive course pack when you join online.
It’s a challenging time for all of us, and this hybrid Masterclass is too, but we are ready for it, you too? Bring it on!
