The training days

You will give and receive body Advanced Massage Technique treatments as part of this course. Group students and pairs work upon each other so no models are required. Students will be used as models for demonstrations of massage strokes and draping. This is undertaken by me - Dr. Richard Wain.

If the training is on a 1-2-1 basis you will be worked on by me and vice versa. You may bring your own model - this must be arranged in advance.

Massage couches, couch covers and paper rolls are inclusive. But on the training day, you must bring your own hand and bath/beach towel for your personal use. Please bring a light fragrance free oil with you.

Tea, coffee, water and biscuits are provided on the day. You may bring your own lunch or buy it locally. There are very good catering facilities on site during week days.


What qualification will you receive?

You must successfully completed your training course to the required standard. You will then receive a printed and signed Diploma.



The diploma allows you to get Public Liability insurance. Then you can start offering treatments to paying clients.
