Further Information
The course is mainly ‘hands on’ pairing up to give and receive a massage. Course times are from 10.30 am to about 4.30 pm depending on the group size.
You will learn how to massage professionally as well as the background knowledge necessary to be able to deal with clients and setup in business. The Body Massage Diploma qualification is recognised in many countries outside the UK and gives a good grounding for further qualifications in holistic therapies. The venue is at the Manchester School of Massage in
South Manchester. The group size is kept at ten or below for individual attention. Please book early to ensure a place on a particular course. In certain circumstances we may be able to offer a monthly payment scheme. Part-time work experience for students is available at Manchester Therapy Centre.
