The IFA Sets New Guinness World Record

Posted by admin at 15:06 on 26 Mar 2018







On 26th March 2018 at the Heung Yee Kuk Building, Shatin, Hong Kong, IFA members came together for a historic event to set the new world record by giving 30 minute hand massages simultaneously to 297 elderly people beating the previous world record of 250. 

This was achieved by IFA members doing what they do best helping, healing and supporting their local community and promoting Aromatherapy in the best possible way – by being a living example and a credit to their profession. 

Throughout the year the International Federation of Aromatherapists (IFA) organise and exhibit at various trade shows to raise awareness of aromatherapy and provide sample treatments to the public - this landmark in the IFA’s history is an amazing honour for not only the IFA but our qualified professional Aromatherapists to be in the Guinness Book of records as well as giving back to the community.

A big thank you to all IFA members who participated and the WSA and CPA charity supporting this event. An incredible accomplishment and memorable day.
