This course offers you the skills and knowledge to perform professional massage treatments as a standalone therapy or to add to your existing skills.

This is a self-paced course, which means that all the content is available and you are free to move ahead at your own pace. We will progress through a set of topics that compose the fundamentals of massage and pre warming treatments. The course will emphasize concepts, knowledge and techniques that you will be able to apply to create a tailored massage service. The course will also introduce you to terms and concepts that you will learn in the anatomy & Physiology course to support your learning.

Videos covering the underpinning knowledge and practical skills required. You can watch these in either order depending on your learning preferences. The transcripts and audio versions are also available to download.

Our industry is constantly changing and new techniques are identified all the time, you will need to keep up with these changes through your ongoing personal development, however the fundamentals that you will learn don’t change and will prepare you to learn any new techniques quickly and easily.
The key to becoming a confident professional massage therapist is practice, so in-between topics, it is strongly advised that you put in to practice the learning gained before moving on to the next session.
