Massage has been performed for thousands of years, even before the dawn of medicine and surgery, to promote health and well-being.

This course will teach you how to deliver Swedish Body Massage in a holistic manner – treating the whole person in body, mind and spirit. With this approach you can adapt your treatments to suit your client’s needs and see for yourself how massage can really help with stress relief, physical ailments and emotional health.

We feel everyone should know how to massage – to be able to tap into this ancient art of human touch and natural healing to promote better health and standards of living on a daily basis.
