Body Detox Therapist Training
"
The professionalism of teaching at Therapy Training School was first class and the training in a very organised and professional manner. I felt the quality of information provided during the training was very thorough and taught in such a way that it was easily absorbed and understood. The pace of the workshops was just right, with plenty of time to learn and ask questions. The surroundings and atmosphere at Therapy Training School is very tranquil and relaxing. I felt at ease at all times and as if I had known you all for years. All the information you require is contained in the handouts which are very professionally detailed and drawn up so that, n comparison to other workshops, I feel that I had good value for my money. The on-going support which you make available after the workshop if and when required is excellent. I know that if they are not able to answer calls straight away, you always get back to me as soon as you can. In conclusion I feel that Therapy Training School is the perfect place and setting for workshops. You only have to look at the Web site and you are drawn to it. "

Holistic Massage Course
"
I was a bit unsure what to expect for a massage course that was so short and how much I would learn, to then practice professionally. However I cannot credit the school enough. I've left feeling so confident in my ability as a masseuse and learnt so much. Each section of the body is broken down and you learn how to treat each area. You get a real understanding of what each technique is used for and gain a real understanding of massaging muscle groups. You are also taught towel management to make sure the client is covered appropriately and they feel comfortable. With the amount of students in each class being so small, you really feel a sense of one-on-one tuition.A fantastic teacher with a great personality, who immediately made everyone on the course feel really comfortable. I've already practiced on several friends and family who are already referring people to me. If you are thinking about doing a massage course, this is absolutely the right choice for you. I really cannot say enough to credit the school, but will say that many friends and family are even happier than me that I've done the course. "

Swedish Massage Course Excellent Tuition
"
My husband bought me this course for Christmas and is the best present i've ever received. I turned up expecting it to be very "school" like and couldn't have been more wrong. Our tutor soon put us all at ease and was an excellent teacher. The 2 days were long and very tiring but well worth it. I think the training manual is also an excellent guide as the drawings in there helped and still do help keep me on track. Id definitely recommend this course and will be doing add ons in the future with Therapy Training School. "

Body Massage Training Course
"
A big Thank You for my teacher - you made this course so much fun and I bet I will remember always. I wasn't expecting such a high standard and deep knowledge with right mix of humour to keep us at ease! Great job! I will consider taking more courses with Therapy Training School and already share your website details with my friends- more to come to you :) Best wishes and thanks for all you care- especially Tiffany, your administration manager, for helping me so much with preparations "

Indian Head Massage and Hopi Ear Candling Training
"
Further to our conversation the other day, I am happy to give feedback on the training I have received from you in Hopi Ear Candling and Indian Head Massage. In general I found the training to be very professional in their approach and certainly the setting and the facilities were very very good. On a personal level, I learn best through a hands on approach and I was not disappointed. The teacher had a very easy manner, but still managed to inspire confidence that you are experienced and really do know what you are talking about. That translates into a training experience that is full of information but also fun. I very much liked the mixture of information given followed by personal hands-on practical work in each area before moving on to the next part of the course. I also found the number of people on the course to be just right - enough to give other people's input and for everybody to have sufficient opportunity to work through the practical aspects of the courses, but not too many that you struggle to get an opportunity to have a go. The handouts were very good and also gave information on where to get supplies, etc. The setting was also very nice and there was a constant supply of tea and coffee and a good number of breaks. All in all, I found the workshops to be good value for money and I would not hesitate to book for other courses in the future. "

Body Detox Therapist Training
"
Many thanks for the excellent training you conducted last weekend. I must confess I was a little apprehensive before I arrived as I was concerned that I would not understand or pick up the theory and practical in such a short time. I need not have worried and would have no hesitation in recommending a beginner with little or no knowledge such as myself to Therapy Training School for training. I feel so confident I have booked a client in for next week and am raring to go. So once again many thanks. "

Kindest Regards and Best Wishes "

Hopi Ear Candle Therapist Training
"
Thankyou for the additional information you forwarded onto me after the course yesterday. I enjoyed the training day very much. Therapy Training School as a venue is very calming and relaxing with a lovely secluded garden emitting a sense of peace. I was made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble or any question too daft and your explanations were very easy to understand. I certainly enjoyed the experience of the treatment as it was so relaxing. My head felt very clear going home which is most unusual after a training day. It was also good to know the results of the test quickly. My colleagues are waiting with baited breath for a demonstration from me. Thanks again, take care. "

Body Detox Therapist Training
"
It was lovely to meet you and my fellow students last Wednesday. I did enjoy the course very much and found it to be very interesting and informative and a big thank you for all your hard work. I have to tell you that I felt totally relaxed but energised (if that makes sense) after my treatment and the journey home was a lot better than in the morning. I just did not feel tired at all! I have arranged insurance cover to start straight away and as soon as I receive the insurance certificate I will send you a copy. At the moment I am busy decorating my therapy room and getting things ready for take off soon. Again, many thanks. "

Better than 16 weeks at college
"
I first came across Therapy Training School when I was looking for an ear candling course to further my skills after completing Indian Head Massage through a night course at my local college. Right from the outset, I was extremely impressed by the professionalism and enthusiasm from the tutor, Karen Hemming, who is also the Principal of the school. The environment was beautifully suited to learning and along with Karens engaging teaching style; I found the course both informative and enjoyable. During the facial massage training I became very aware that some of the techniques I had previously learnt were not effective and needed a lot of refinement so I booked to attend the Indian Head Massage course with the Therapy Training School a couple of weeks later. The Indian Head training was a complete revelation after my previous course and I learned more in the one day than I had in the 16 weeks at college. Karen went through all the techniques thoroughly until all the participants were working correctly and with confidence. Karen also participated in the massage to test our techniques; this was in stark contract to the college style which was strictly on a watch and repeat after me basis. As you are given all the relevant theory to read through before the session, you can have it fresh in your mind rather than trying to take all the new information which allows full concentrate on the finer points of delivering a full and effective treatment. One major difference between Therapy Training School Indian Head course to that at my college was the use of the massage table for the facial massage rather than having the client lean back on a stool and rest against the therapist. Having both received and executed massages on both styles, I personally found the table massage preferable for being massages and delivering the treatment. All in all I would like to highly recommend this training school to anyone who wants to learn new skills or just refresh and update their current ones. "

Swedish Diploma Course
"
Wow! What an absolutely fabulous weekend. As a full time IT Consultant, undertaking training in Swedish Body Massage I was well outwith my comfort zone. Our trainer was absolutely fantastic. She was patient, thorough and really went out of her way to ensure each and every one of us had the best possible learning experience. I've received my Diploma and am now looking at how to make the transition from a corporate office environment. I wish I'd done this years ago! "

Reiki Level One Training and Attunement
"
After searching around for a Reiki tutor in the Staffordshire area I read an article in the Sentinel about Therapy Training School. My friend had told me "you don't find Reiki, Reiki finds you". I gave them a call and arranged to go along for an informal chat. Karen Aitken is the Reiki Master and she gave me a very warm welcome. I was quite nervous but Karen's easy going, calming style put me right at ease within moments. After about 30 minutes she had given me some general background about Reiki and what things the Level One workshop included, I went away enthused and looking forward to learning Reiki. A week later I was back for my Reiki Level One Training and Attunement. The day consisted of a detailed induction in the morning, where i learned all about the history, principles and lineage of Reiki. It is essential to have a good grounding in the principles of Reiki so that you might appreciate it more greatly and also, use it more wisely. My attunement was a great experience. Reiki is energy that's all around us, but to be able to channel it the student must first be attuned. Don't worry, it's totally painless. Within days of being attuned and practicing reiki healing on myself I noticed how well I was sleeping and my intuition improved greatly. I was seeking stability in my life and since then I have met my partner and we now have a beautiful daughter. Later this year I'm hoping to take my Reiki Level Two. I'll definitely be visiting Therapy Training School again due to their kindness and broad knowledge of our shared passion - Reiki. "

Indian Head Massage Therapist Training
"
I recently attended Therapy Training School for training in Indian Head Massage. Therapy Training School itself is a wonderfully calming place and has an aura of peace and tranquility which automatically put me at my ease on arrival. The training room itself was ideally laid out for training and had a relaxed but professional atmosphere about it. The teacher instantly made me feel at home and so any sort of nerves went straight out of the window! The training itself was taught in a methodical way, covering all the theory first before 'towelling up' for the practical side! I found the teaching method clear and consise and very easy to follow. The whole day was full of learning all kinds of theory on anatomy, techniques and client consultation advice as well as in depth practical training which was detailed, professional yet relaxing and informal. The contents of the course was great, it covered everything a budding therapist would need to know and more! and I found the course handout/training manual extremely helpful once I got home as it outlined all the techniques that are used in IHM so at least I knew I had something to look back on if I had any doubt. At the end of the day, after all the theory and practical training, I felt I had learnt so much and was thrilled to receive my certificate, The teacher was also great in that she even offered any phone advice should we have any questions afterwards, which was very reassuring to know. All in all, I'd say the cost of the course is easily reflected in the amount of training, learning and practical work you get to do on the days training and was in my opinion extremely good value for money and I am keen to get started with more training at Therapy Training School!"

Inspirational training courses
"
Having always wanted to undertake training in massage, I was recommended 2 courses with the Therapy Training School. The 2-day and 1-day intensive courses were one of the best career moves I have taken to date. The small group environment meant that time could be allocated to developing our individual needs and there was no sense of rush or overloading of information. I left feeling that time and care had really been put into my own development as a therapist. The teaching was first class - clear, concise, engaging and inspiring. Any panic or fear I may have had prior to the course was soon dispelled, and I left feeling thorougly satisfied and confident to move forward with my own work as a massage therapist. I cannot put the 'massage' across strongly enough - study with the Therapy Training School! "

One of the best courses I have attended!
"
I have been involved in complementary and psychological health for nearly 20 years. I can safely say that the course I attended on Indian Health Massage in December 2008 has been one of the best I have attended. The course itself - and the manual provided - were clear and easy to follow. Karen is a naturally clear communicator and it was a joy to learn from her. As well as that, she is a genuinely nice person who is eager to pass on her knowledge to others. The course I attended was great value for money. "

Thai Hand and Foot Massage Training Course
"
For anyone who wants to boost their career as a complementary therapist, or simply have an extra skill, this is the perfect course for you! From beginning to end it was perfect mix of fun and challenging. With a class size of 6, we had the luxury of giving and receiving the treatment. Karen the teacher was wonderful, she has a lovely sense of humour and a brilliant teaching style. I did the Thai hand and foot massage course and the Indian head massage course, and I would recommend them both highly. "

Well what can we say. Karen and Karl were both very welcoming and friendly. It put myself and my daughter at ease straight away. From the onset it was very clear that Karen had a tremendous amount of patience and knowledge. The course was made easy to follow and very informative and we both thoroughly enjoyed our course. We were both thrilled to receive our diploma for Reiki level 1. We look forward to level 2. See you soon "

Thai Hand and Foot Massage Training

I had the pleasure of attending a Thai Hand and Foot massage course on 24th July and I have to congratulate Therapy Training School for providing such a professional course. The actual course itself and the website with all the advantages that it permits is brilliant. I feel that the teaching approach is just right and the surroundings of the training room and their beautiful gardens just add to the experience. I had a fantastic day and hope to return soon to do more training. "

I think that Therapy Training School was the ideal place to complete my Indian Head Massage Course. I felt very relaxed and comfortable within my surroundings and thoroughly enjoyed it. Both Karen and Karl were very friendly and welcoming and Karen made the course very informative yet simple to follow. I now feel confident that I can offer an IHM as part of my new business. The training manual I was issued with was very detailed and helpful and I’m sure I will use it again for reference in the future! Overall I had a great day – money well spent I feel!! "

Thai Hand and Foot Massage Training
"
I would just like to thank you for a really enjoyable training day on the Thai Hand and Foot massage course yesterday. The way in which you delivered the training made the content so easy to understand. The manual received prior to the course is detailed yet easily digested, even for someone like myself who has no previous experience within this field. The day was also made fun by your cool sense of humour. Your teaching style gives students the encouragement they need to gain more knowledge; so much so that i have booked on the Indian Head Massage course. Look forward to seeing you again in three weeks time. "

I really enjoyed your courses!
"
Thanks for today, really enjoyed the course (as much as the Indian Head Massage and Hopi Ear Candling). My feet feel absolutely heavenly. I spoke to the other therapist I work with and she would also be interested in the Thai hand and foot course and the Swedish Massage Course. So excited - can't wait for the new diploma courses! Please don't forget me, I want to be on your very first course and would be happy to travel up to you. "

I just wanted to thank you for a very healing, relaxing day at your place for the Hopi Course. I have only managed to practice once on my husband as yet as I have been very busy at home and work, but hope to get some more practice in soon as I don't want to lose my skills!! I am thinking about a website but before that I want to send for the otoscope and some other items. I will practice on family and friends first and see how it goes. Thanks again for a lovely day! "
