Massage is a universal instinct. From the earliest times, we have known that it helps to rub a sore limb and that to touch is beneficial. Massage can be traced back through history within every culture, in particular Chinese, Indian, Greek, Persian, Roman as well as Western Europe.

Although massage techniques are based on a mixture of many traditions and techniques, the starting point is to understand the workings of the human body, the mechanics of posture and muscle tone which will enable you to create a treatment which will specifically benefit your client.

This course has been designed for anyone wishing to begin his or her career as a massage or body holistic therapist and is a pre-requisite for aroma massage, sports massage, stone and lava shell therapy.  

Massage is a rewarding career, especially for those who would like flexible working hours on a self-employed basis.

Not just a course but business set-up and practice.  The initial training will teach you the knowledge & skills to professionally carry out full body massage with the adaptations of incorporating blended essential oils, hot stones and relaxation massage for pregnancy. Once the initial training is complete and the qualifications gained, you will have the opportunity to access the next stage of the business building process with a business coach and mentor and the help of the ‘First Steps’ next step program set up a home-based or mobile beauty business and build a business.

City & Guilds level 3 Awards recognised by any insurance company for professional practice. This course is designed for everyone, even without previous knowledge.  Massage is a rewarding career, especially for those who would like flexible working hours on a self-employed basis.

There is no specific prerequisite, however, it’s essential that you desire to excel and a professional mature attitude.  You will need to complete research and practice your skills each week as well as complete the online anatomy & physiology activities.  

Much learning is through practical application, discussion, exploration with treatments performed on each other until safe correct techniques have been mastered.  You will then progress to working on clients and will be able to evaluate the effectiveness of your treatments and complete task work quickly during the course.
