Swedish Body Massage

Using a variety of basic and advanced massage movements, you will learn how to perform a professional body massage. Acupressure points will be incorporated in the massage routine which will help with many common ailments and promote healing in the body. During a pre-treatment consultation, you will be shown how to adapt your massage to suit the needs or a range of clients.

Hot Stone Massage

Using a range of hot volcanic basalt stones, you will learn how to provide a deeply relaxing treatment which works on a mental, physical and spiritual level. The combination of heat and deep pressure results in relief of muscular tension with minimal effort from the therapist.

Indian Head Massage

Indian Head Massage concentrates on the areas most vunerable to tension - the scalp, face, upper back, neck and shoulders. Treatment can be carried out using dry hands, oil, floral waters or astringents depending upon the requirements of the client. Indian head massage is excellent for many stress related problems and can be carried out over clothes if required.

Massage using Pre-blended oils

This treatment combines the healing properties of essential oils with the deep relaxation of soothing massage. Our massage courses teach you how to select and safely use essential oils according to the needs of the individual.
