Professional Holistic Massage Training Course / Continuing Education Award in Holistic Massage
Taught as a stand-alone professional qualification, the 24 week course in Holistic Massage (over 9 months, September – June) offers a broad perspective on massage as a health maintenance discipline and a grounding in a wide range of massage skills, principles and professional approaches. Students will learn the techniques to develop their own style of massage, underpinned by understanding of anatomy, physiology and pathology; specific massage skills, self-care and body use for massage, and confidence in relating to clients, and building their own practice.
During 2009 the Complementary Therapy Suite was refurbished. The area has audio visual and other teaching aides, the latest electric hydraulic massage couches, portable couches and massage chairs, relaxation chairs and cubicles for clinic sessions.
Successful completion of the course would enable the practitioner to practice as a MTI registered massage therapist. This course also meets the pre-requisite massage standard for undertaking the IFPA accredited Diploma in Aromatherapy.
