This course is structured over two days and runs from 10am – 4pm. We ask students to arrive at 9.45am to ensure a prompt start. You will learn the theory of the treatment firstly, and spend the majority of the first and second day practising your practical skills, with a short break for lunch. You will be required to give and receive body massage treatments as part of this course, working with other students.
We do not include any kits within our training courses, however we provide all products and tools required to complete the practical training on the day, at the training centre for you to use. We took this approach following student feedback so that students are not tied into specific kits or brands of products as part of their course fee, before they are trained and able to make an informed choice. Our training courses teach the generic treatment techniques and processes, they are not brand specific.
We recommend attending training where you will gain advice about different brands and suppliers to enable you to purchase products from your chosen supplier directly following your training. We do offer selected starter kits available to purchase through our website & supplied directly from the supplier to you by courier.

1. Payment in full using Credit / Debit
By making payment in full, you can secure your course place and enjoy the greatest flexibility to book all of your training days at your preferred training centre, in the best way to suit you – whether that’s as a consecutive block (subject to availability) or taken at your own pace. Book securely online 24/7, or call our friendly Advisors by book by phone.
2. Deko Finance (Payment Plan) for courses over £299
Our Deko Finance option is available on all courses, diploma course packages and VTCT qualifications over £299. You have three options – to make repayments either over 12, 24, or 36 months at only 19.9%, all with just a 20% deposit.
A very important point regarding finance options: Many of our students are fairly young and may not have taken out finance before; perhaps they are living with mum/dad or boyfriend/partner and have not had their own name on an electoral roll for at least 3 years. Now, although it may seem a bit harsh it is very true that all finance companies will view your application very critically if any of the above is true. A way around this is to increase your deposit to say 40% but this needs to be done at the outset and not after you have been rejected.
If you feel that any of the above does apply to you then please just have a word with one of our Course Advisors before making an application.
The Deko finance option allows you book and attend your chosen courses with us while making affordable, monthly repayments to spread the cost. You don’t need to wait to book training sessions, you can complete all training as you wish, selecting from our available scheduled dates without delay. This is a great payment choice for those who desire the flexibility to manage studying around work commitments / childcare or even wish to complete their award as soon as possible; but who need the option to spread the cost into more affordable payments, over a longer term.
You can increase your deposit to reduce your payments and you can pay off early if you wish. No hidden fees or charges. The scheme is subject to the usual credit checks etc.
Using a variety of both basic and advanced massage movements, you will learn how to perform a professional body massage that works to stimulate circulation, promotes relaxation and keeps muscle tissue more supple. Acupressure points will be incorporated in the massage routine which will help with many common ailments (such as stress, fatigue, muscle pain and aches) and encourage healing in the body. During a pre-treatment consultation, you will be shown how to adapt your massage to suit the needs for a range of clients of all ages, including use of a range of massage mediums. The treatment is most effective when received on a regular basis, enticing your clients to return for regular bookings, establishing a continuous source of income. Following the course, you will have learnt the techniques to confidently provide very effective holistic treatments on an Express Body Massage and luxurious Spa Full Body Massage treatment basis. As a professional massage therapist working from home and mobile, you can expect to earn up to £50 an hour so these are certainly lucrative skills to learn.
