Massage can help clients to de-stress, improve circulation, and reduce pain. Providing a massage treatment can be both beneficial to the client and the therapist and can lead to an incredibly rewarding career.


Theory is carried out on-line via the Guild of Holistic Therapist's student portal.  Course elements are detailed below.   Once completed you can book on our two day practical course where you will learn a full body massage using classic Swedish techniques.


When you have successfully completed both elements of the course, your tutor will pass you and a GTi Certificate will be available for you to download or purchase on your portal.
