Holistic Massage has been used for thousands of years as a simple and effective method of attaining & maintaining good health. Massage has been incorporated into many health systems and is the basis and foundation skills of any massage therapist.
The Holistic Massage part of the course will give you all of the classical massage movements and also the underpinning knowledge of Anatomy & Physiology. If you are interested in becoming an Alternative or Complementary Therapist then we recommend that you commence with this course as it is often used as a prerequisite for many of the other complementary therapies such as aromatherapy, stone therapy & sports massage.
This course will also teach you to have a holistic approach when dealing with clients that you will use throughout your career as a complementary therapist.
Lymphatic drainage is a specialised form of massage that works specifically on the lymphatic system. It is an extremely light form of massage that is very beneficial for the lymphatic system and clients with any form of swelling and fluid retention. The main aim of the ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Lymphatic Drainage Massage is to enable learners to provide treatments for the purposes of relaxation and stress release and to aid in the reduction of excess fluid. Throughout the course learners will focus on lymphatic massage skills as well as customer care working on a number of case studies to underpin the basis of this course.
