Fully accredited Body Massage Diploma Course

Work Anywhere In The UK With This Diploma

Accredited by: Accredited by the GHTAccredited by the BHT

Swedish Massage (also known as Holistic Massage) is one of the most popular mainstream holistic therapies, and is offered at any reputable spa or beauty treatment clinic. Our comprehensive body massage beginner's course guides you carefully through all of the traditional massage techniques for front and back body so that you can deliver a very effective and therapeutic treatment for your clients.

 

The course provides you with 2 full days of practical training where you will be taught a full range of techniques and sequences so that you can offer effective treatment for many of today's common ailments. We only ever teach small numbers of students at a time so the quality of tuition is excellent and you will receive lots of one-to-one instruction and guidance from your tutor. You also practice the massage techniques upon fellow students, and they upon you (as it's the best way to learn) so you don't need to bring along a massage model.

 

Our Swedish body massage practitioner training course includes everything you need to safely and professionally conduct a professional massage treatment.

 

This course is ideal for the beginner or experienced therapist. So if you want to learn a new therapy or advance your existing skills then this is the course for you! You do not need to have any other qualifications or experience to participate with this course.

 

This course is perfect for complete beginners and one of the best courses for you to start with.

    2 days practical: Starting at 10am and finishing at 5pm on each day you will be taught all of the practical skills you will need to deliver a full body Swedish (Holistic) massage treatment. There is no practical test. Instead we assess your understanding and ability of each treatment technique as it is taught. Students practice upon one another so no need to bring a massage model.
