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.

Our diploma courses are suitable for complete beginners and do not require any prior learning to be able to train with us; many of our students are not yet beauty trained and are looking to start up a business in the industry. We welcome students of all abilities, whether you are looking to learn a new skill from scratch or currently working as a therapist and looking to refresh your knowledge of particular treatments. This course is an ideal starting place to progress onto further advanced massage training courses or indeed a VTCT qualification.

You will give and receive body massage treatments as part of this course. Students work upon each other so no models are required. Training sessions can be mixed sex depending on bookings made, however privacy screens are used to ensure all student discretion. Should you require to attend a training day with same-sex students only in attendance e.g. for religious reasons, please contact us before booking so we can look at the best training date for you.

All products and tools are provided for the training days at the centre when you attend. No kit is required to complete the training days, nor included in the course fee. On the training days, you only need to bring a hand and bath towel for your personal use, completed enrolment form and cold food for your lunch (e.g. sandwich/salad). Tea & coffee are provided.
