About this course

Students will learn classical massage movements to treat the whole body. In order to achieve this, students will be taught anatomy and physiology in order to gain a complete knowledge of the structure and functions of each area. The course will also cover Health, Safety and Hygiene as well as the Principles and Practice of Complementary Therapists. There will be regular homework of at least eight hours per week which will include written work, background reading and home study/revision. Students will also be expected to practise their massage skills at home as well as giving and receiving massage treatments during class. There will be regular tests to assess progress in all areas. Regular attendance is mandatory.

By the end of the course students should be able to:

• Explain the structure and function of the ten systems of the body in relation to holistic massage.
• Perform holistic body massages demonstrating effective hygiene practices and client care.
• Perform and evidence 20 treatments and 16 case studies on clients.
• Identify the origins and evaluate techniques used by complementary therapists.
• Prepare a business plan in relation to the role of the complementary therapist.

There are additional lessons running on Saturdays and attendance is compulsory. These extra dates will be discussed with you and the tutor once the course has started to ensure that the dates are agreed by the whole group.
