I thoroughly enjoyed the Indian Head Massage Diploma course and learnt a lot from Diane with her experience as both a trainer and a therapist. I felt really comfortable working with the other person on the course and we were given plenty of time to practice, ask questions and go over anything we felt we need to cover again. The information provided and recommendation for other materials and books was much appreciated and I have since read up on useful tips and techniques to support me in the future. I can highly recommend this course and any other courses delivered by Diane as it’s a relaxed but professional environment and you come away inspired to learn more!

What can i say? The day i walked in, the day my life in the Uk changed and for the better, meeting Di, doing training courses with her in 2014 in hopi ear candling, reflexology and holistic facial has simply been AMAZING!  If you don’t know Diane, your missing out, Diane has been my therapist, mentor, teacher and friend since 2014 and i love her to bits x

Diane is an amazing mentor/teacher. She has a real passion for the treatments that she teaches. I have done 4 courses with Diane now and have more in the pipeline �, I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my training (I travel over 150 miles to see Diane). The therapy centre is a place of peace and tranquillity. I would highly recommend Diane.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Diane for 8-9 years having completed 3 courses with her at The Gorge Therapy & Training Centre, Indian Head Massage Diploma, Swedish Massage Diploma, Hot Stone Massage Diploma. Diane creates an atmosphere of relaxation and confidence, using a number of training resources i.e. explanation, handouts and demonstration. The contents of the training programmes was easily understood and the facilities complimented my training, no noise or distractions, warm and light. Toilets and refreshments were readily available. I felt comfortable and confidant during the assessment process, all materials were easy to follow and appropriate to my level of skills and I achieved the learning outcomes of her courses. Diane demonstrated her deep knowledge of the subjects I learned and her instruction was clear, open, honest and easy to follow. I have gone on and practised successfully as a complimentary therapist using the skills taught.

Just completed a Swedish Massage Course with Solace Academy. Course tutor Diane Rixom was superb, patient and explained everything in great detail. I would definitely recommend Solace Academy and Diane. In fact just signing up for the Acupressure Course at the end of September. Thank you Diane as Alison. Xx
