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 1 full day 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. One-to-one training offers the highest quality of tuition, instruction and guidance from your tutor. You will practice the massage techniques upon your model, and at the beginning or end of the day you will receive a full body massage treatment from the tutor.

 

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.

 

One-to-one tuition gives you the opportunity to focus upon individual requirements and the course will be tailored to your skill level and previous experience.

 

We arrange SOLO tuition for you at a date that suits you best.

  • How It Works

  • The theory test: Study your course manual at home and complete a theory test paper online. You can retake the test as many times as you like until you reach the pass mark and at no extra charge.

     

    1 day practical: Starting at 10am and finishing at 5pm you will be taught all of the practical skills you will need to deliver a full body massage treatment. There is no practical test. Instead we assess your understanding and ability of each treatment technique as it is taught. As this is solo tuition you will need to bring a massage model with you on the training day. This can be a friend or member of your family. Please note that you will also receive a full massage at the beginning or end of the training day as this is an essential part of the learning process.
