Council aromatouch course is praised; KNOWSLEY Ground- breaking scheme.
AN AROMATHERAPY A course for parents and carers of children with complex needs was praised by an international organisation.
The ground-breaking aromatouch course uses massage and essential oils to help with emotional and physical well-being.
Knowsley Council supports the scheme through its short breaks programme for people with children that need a lot of help.

F IFAF chief executivei Pauline Allen said: "Knowsley Council should be commended for its support and for the high standard of delivei ry of this very important course.
"I've assessed some of the people taking part and heard first hand of the fantastic changes that havea come from using these techniques."
The course is delive i red by Sheila Ladanowski, an experienced clinical aromatherapist and IFAF tutor. r Knowsley's Short Breaks programme funds various projects for people invo n lved with children with complex needs. To find out more call 0151 443 5601.
