In tandem with our
strive towards integrating Aromatherapy within
Clinical environment, AromaArt has, in our
recent trip to various parts of Taiwan, ROC,
received phenomenal breakthroughs in our
educational efforts sowed these years together
with our fellow International associates.
October's trip, it was indeed a
fruitful one that is packed with many exciting
events to anticipate. Our first stop was to the
National Taichung Nursing College for a
Collaboration Agreement Signing Ceremony.
Established since 1955, this nursing college has
since cultivated countless dedicated nurses and
has long been recognized as a leading nursing
college in Taiwan.
Since early 2006, AromaArt has
been providing short trainings and workshops to
the collegeís nurses. In agreement towards a
common vision in education and development, we
have agreed to collaborate and combine our
resources in Research and Development for
Clinical Aromatherapy. We hope that such
collaboration would yield good results where
Aromatherapy may be more effectively applied to
help patients in their fight against ailments
Our next stop was to an
Elderly home in Taichung where our
committed teams have been actively providing
volunteer massages for the elderly. True to
the spirit of contributing back to the
society that we have received abundance
from, we hope that this AromaArtís belief
will be widely spread, so that more patients
may experience the vast benefits of touch.
in our schedule during this trip was attending
the Graduation Ceremony of our students. This
unique batch of graduates, whom have been
arranged to take their examinations at the Beijing
Labour Bureau, in China PRC, where candidates
who passed the examinations were qualified by
the Beijing Government to teach Aromatherapy in
It is indeed encouraging to see all our
students clearing the examinations according to
the strict standards set by the Beijing
Authorities and we hope that in the near future,
these graduates with their talents, would educate
more students in Clinical Aromatherapy.
In line with our
recent education collaboration with the Beauty
Parlour Union of Taiwan, we have made a visit to its
office in Ji Long where we had constructive
discussions with its Chairman, Ms Lin Mei Ying.
Ms Lin has, for the past few decades in this
Government appointment contributed much to the
wellness industry across Taiwan. Our discussion
covers subjects like International differences
in Aromatherapy practice, cultural conflicts and
syllabus synchronization in Taiwan.
educational project with the Government has
launched successfully in June 2006 and we hope
that with the implementation of this
project, AromaArt may assist the Unionís drive
towards raising and synchronizing the
Aromatherapy syllabus in Taiwan.
satisfaction we have gained from this trip was the
opportunity to meet up with many of our past
graduates and existing students. It was more so heart-warming that many
of them took the effort of travelling from various parts of the province to
meet up and share with us their recent progress.
We are glad that these valuable friendships are
developed along our path of education and such
assets will always be deeply cherished.
We would like to thank the
wonderful hospitality that our friends and
affiliates have showered upon us, and despite
the fact that our Mid-Autumn Festival has to be
spent away from our family during this trip,
love and warmth were never lacking.
