Our Presenters

 Sharon Wood - "Using the Menstrual Cycle for Better Treatment Results" 

(10:30am to 1:00pm)

Sharon Wood

About Sharon: Sharon is the Founder and Director of Emgoddess, a unique entity focused on changing perceptions and attitudes towards a topic not overtly discussed – a woman’s monthly cycle.

Establishing Emgoddess in 2015, Emgoddess is now the vehicle through which Sharon can consolidate not only her own professional corporate journey, but her passion to educate and empower others.

Holding qualifications in holistic aromatherapy from The Tisserand Institute of London, combined with multiple certifications in Herbalism, Natural Fertility Management and Specialised Aromatherapy, Sharon has also worked as an Aromatherapist, including teaching aromatherapy at the Reflexology Academy of Brisbane and the International College of Holistic Aromatherapy.

Today she is driven to change the negative attitudes towards women’s cycles by creating a way of looking at the cycle as a positive thing. The program she has designed not only establishes deeper insights and understandings, but creates a language and point of reference for both males and females to engage in the philosophy and surprisingly have fun with the concept.

At this presentation Sharon will discuss:

Detail of the 4 phases of the cycle and how as therapists we can achieve better results for our clients by using the strengths of each phase. This workshop includes printed notes that Sharon will distribute on the day. This workshop will teach attendees to:

 - Understand how to use a woman’s cycle to benefit your treatment results

 - Show your female clients how to use this internal tool to benefit their lives daily

 - Understand the 4 phases of the cycle and how they impact
