About the Course

Swedish Massage (also known as Holistic Massage) is one of the most popular mainstream holistic therapies, and is offered at any reputable spa or beauty treatment clinic. Our comprehensive professional body massage beginner’s course guides you carefully through all of the traditional massage techniques for front and back body so that you can deliver a very effective and therapeutic treatment for your clients.

The course provides you with 2 full days of practical training where you will be taught a full range of techniques and sequences so that you can offer effective treatment for many of today’s common ailments. We only ever teach small numbers of students at a time so the quality of tuition is excellent and you will receive lots of one-to-one instruction and guidance from Ishtaa. You also practice the massage techniques upon fellow students, and they upon you (as it’s the best way to learn) so you don’t need to bring along a massage model
