1. Massage Therapist: Become A Massage Therapist

Massage has been used for centuries to heal, invigorate and relax the mind and body, reaching all the major organs as well as helping the muscles, bones and soft tissue to stay healthy.

Before you employ any techniques, this Massage Therapy course takes you through various parts of the anatomy and systems of the body, to give important knowledge about why massage is used and in what ways it is beneficial to the body, including which techniques to use for specific ailments. It also details best practices, how to recognise symptoms of various conditions, and how to treat specific clients, for example when it is safe to massage someone in pregnancy and which techniques to use and which to avoid.

The massage principle is simple: touch means stimulation. This means that wherever touch is used, the body reacts. Because of the changing landscape of the skin and the body parts it protects, differing levels of touch on the body elicit a range of responses; a soft stroke on the forearm may induce relaxation, but a deeper touch might help the blood vessels in the lower arm take blood back to the heart or stimulate and deepen blood flow to painful muscles.

You will learn how to create the right atmosphere for massage and how to conduct a session, to give the client a positive experience. This includes which oils to use for massage and how choosing specific oils can have positive effects on certain conditions of the client’s body and mind.

It then moves onto the practice of the subject; massage techniques and how to deploy them to various parts of the body, and how each treatment is beneficial. The course also takes you through specific massage applications, such as massage for sports and abdominal massage, as well as the benefits, and how to perform, hydrotherapy.

The course finishes off with some useful pointers and considerations for those looking to set up their own business.

Who would benefit from this course?

This is a comprehensive massage course that will take you from complete beginner to having all the knowledge you need to set up and practice as a Massage Therapist, along with giving a solid foundation for advanced study and further study into specific treatment areas. Alternatively you could use the information contained within the course to help friends and family, or learn with a partner, so you can both reap the benefits of massage.

2. Hot Stone Massage: Learn And Build Your Own Successful Hot Stone Massage Business

This extremely comprehensive course will teach you everything that you need to know about building a successful hot stone massage business.

This course goes far beyond just giving you the techniques involved with hot stone massage (though this is covered in great detail also) but gives you a full knowledge about the subject.

This course takes you from complete beginner right through to becoming a competent and confident massage therapist. Starting with the very basics, with specific step-by-step details of massage and its benefits, anatomy and physiology, the benefits of a Hot Stone Massage, the different techniques that you can use, and including everything that you need to know about setting up your business and how to get your very first clients.

The course starts with a brief introduction as to what is involved in a hot stone massage and what to expect from the course and then moves into a fuller introduction module. This larger introduction gives you a good base to build your knowledge from, as it provides the answers to the ‘Whys’ of the subject, including the benefits, facts and theories about hot stone massage, along with a little history of its origins.

We discuss different types of stones used and the ailments and conditions this type of massage can treat and explain why you would want to give hot stone massage.

Students will learn the basics, such as the equipment you’ll need, safety concerns to be aware of, and how to set up a treatment room, to how to heat stones and techniques and tips on how to actually give a massage. Additionally, there are a number of secret tricks of the trade included that will help you to become more proficient, quicker.

We’ll show you how to create a better overall experience for your clients, how to market yourself, be better organised, what to charge, and how to grow your business.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Hot Stone Massage Certificate Course is designed to take anyone students from beginner to business-owner. Likewise, existing business owners in the relaxation and holistic therapy industries could add hot stone massage to the treatments they offer upon completion of the course (and obtaining the necessary insurance).

The course can also be taken for those who wish to use the techniques learned within to treat their friends, family, and partners.

3. Indian Head Massage: Learn The Techniques Of Indian Head Massage

As Indian Head Massage involves stimulating areas of the head, neck, shoulders, and face, it is important for practitioners to have an understanding of these areas of the anatomy before any massage techniques can be applied to them, and so this area is covered in the course materials.

More than just the physical act of massage, the Indian Head Massage course talks you through how to understand your client better and how using techniques, such as visualisation and various breathing techniques, can help to improve the client’s experience and enhance the benefit they get from the session.

The course also talks through how to set up a comfortable environment for the client, as well as how to treat specific clients.

Understanding Massage

The physical side of the massage, this part of the course talks you through the various techniques that can be employed and how each of them benefits the client, as well as the spiritual side of Indian Head Massage. This part of the course culminates in how to perform a basic Indian Head Massage using the newly-learned techniques.

Who would benefit from the course?

A dedicated section of the course also talks about the benefits of Indian Head Massage, when to use it, and just as importantly, when to avoid its use. Differing types of oils that can be used in massage are also discussed; explaining the different types of oil and the benefits of each.

4. Pregnancy Massage: Learn The Techniques Used To Provide Effective Prenatal Massage

The Pregnancy Massage Course will give you both the theoretical and practical knowledge you need to provide safe, relaxing, and beneficial prenatal massage to expectant mothers.

Not only will students learn the techniques used to provide effective treatment but they will also gain an in-depth understanding of pregnancy massages and how to start a business using these new skills.

Pregnancy massage (or prenatal massage, as it is also known) differs from other kinds of massage; it is important to know the differences and how it is unique. The start of the course outlines this, as well as informing students of the best time during pregnancy to start prenatal massage and how it can help in different ways through the three trimesters of pregnancy, including how it can help not just the mother, but also the baby.

From the Pregnancy Massage Course, students will gain an understanding of the anatomical and emotional changes the mother-to-be will undergo during her pregnancy, which will help in deciding which techniques are best for the individual. Also discussed, are the benefits of pregnancy massage in comparison to medication.

From this base of knowledge, the course moves into the practical aspect of massage. This includes information on the different types of massages that can be performed on a pregnant woman, how to do them, and the advantages of each technique. In addition, other complementary therapies are discussed, such as acupuncture and aromatherapy, and how these can be used alongside massage for the benefit of the client and the additional revenue it will bring to the business.

Armed with theoretical knowledge and practical techniques to provide prenatal massages and additional therapies, the remainder of the Pregnancy Massage Course focusses on providing students with information on how to start a business. You will be given crucial expert advice on how to start and maintain your business, how to set up a therapy room, and points to keep in mind when choosing a clinic, whether you aim to start in your home, join another clinic, or find your own premises.

There is a myriad of ways to market your business, from traditional to modern means. This course gives an overview on a number of the ways that you can increase the exposure of your business and gain more clients. Also discussed are the ways that you can operate, other services and products you can provide, and other ways of gaining exposure that will give you an edge over the competition.

The final module of the Pregnancy Massage Course summarises what has been learned throughout the course. This gives students the opportunity to not only feel a sense of accomplishment for all they have learned but to also ensure they have retained the information and to highlight areas that they may need to go over again. Here students are also given eight steps to follow, to help them on their way to opening their own business in the industry.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Pregnancy Massage Course is primarily aimed at those who wish to open their own pregnancy massage therapy business, as it contains plenty of information on how to get started and maintain a business in this area. Likewise, those who already provide holistic therapies will learn a lot about the specifics of massage for pregnant women and could add this to their services/treatments.

The course will also be very beneficial to the partners of pregnant women, who wish to have a practical way to help their partner to relax and de-stress whilst they carry their child.

5. Sports Massage Practitioner: Learn Everything You Need To Know To Pursue A Successful Sports Massage Career

From theories and techniques on providing effective massages relevant to your clients’ needs, to setting up a practice and retaining clients, the Sports Massage Practitioner Course guides you through everything you need to know to pursue a successful sports massage career.

You’ll start out with the basics – what a sports massage is, how it differs from other massage types and how it evolved into the practice it is today, before learning about sports massage’s subtypes and the purposes of individual techniques.

The effects of sports massage are not singular but can be broken down into three components: physiological, physical, and psychological. The course explains how sports massage benefits each area and details particular benefits to the body, both before and after a sports event.

The Sports Massage Practitioner Course guides you through the massage techniques used in this therapy, covering Myofascial Release (MFR) Technique, Effleurage, Petrissage, Friction, and Tapotement, along with other massage techniques. You’ll learn how each works and the different methods used within each type.

With the Sports Massage Practitioner Course, you’ll be taken beyond the theories and techniques of the practice, as you learn how to take these skills and apply them in your own sports massage practice. You’ll discover what it takes to be successful in the industry, how to create an environment that is aligned with your clients’ goals and expectations, and the equipment you’ll need, both day-to-day and for specific treatment types.

You’ll learn about the professional principles that you need to put in place and adhere to, to ensure you are running a business that demonstrates integrity, professionalism and competence – providing high-quality treatments to every client and encouraging customer retention.

Another important, and often overlooked area that the Sports Massage Practitioner Course covers is keeping client records. As with any data, it is important to know what information you need from your clients to best serve their needs and how to treat this data. You’ll learn what information to collate and the legal requirements regarding the storage and disposal of the business records of your therapy service.

Who Would Benefit from This Course?

This course is designed to take you from complete beginner to Sports Massage Practitioner and business owner. The course is also applicable to sportspersons and those already working in the sports industry who would like to broaden their skill set and gain more knowledge of the body and the benefits of sports massage. The skills and knowledge gained from the Sports Massage Practitioner Course would be useful to massage therapists looking to add additional treatments to their service offering.

5. Sports Massage Practitioner: Learn Everything You Need To Know To Pursue A Successful Sports Massage Career

From theories and techniques on providing effective massages relevant to your clients’ needs, to setting up a practice and retaining clients, the Sports Massage Practitioner Course guides you through everything you need to know to pursue a successful sports massage career.

You’ll start out with the basics – what a sports massage is, how it differs from other massage types and how it evolved into the practice it is today, before learning about sports massage’s subtypes and the purposes of individual techniques.

The effects of sports massage are not singular but can be broken down into three components: physiological, physical, and psychological. The course explains how sports massage benefits each area and details particular benefits to the body, both before and after a sports event.

The Sports Massage Practitioner Course guides you through the massage techniques used in this therapy, covering Myofascial Release (MFR) Technique, Effleurage, Petrissage, Friction, and Tapotement, along with other massage techniques. You’ll learn how each works and the different methods used within each type.

With the Sports Massage Practitioner Course, you’ll be taken beyond the theories and techniques of the practice, as you learn how to take these skills and apply them in your own sports massage practice. You’ll discover what it takes to be successful in the industry, how to create an environment that is aligned with your clients’ goals and expectations, and the equipment you’ll need, both day-to-day and for specific treatment types.

You’ll learn about the professional principles that you need to put in place and adhere to, to ensure you are running a business that demonstrates integrity, professionalism and competence – providing high-quality treatments to every client and encouraging customer retention.

Another important, and often overlooked area that the Sports Massage Practitioner Course covers is keeping client records. As with any data, it is important to know what information you need from your clients to best serve their needs and how to treat this data. You’ll learn what information to collate and the legal requirements regarding the storage and disposal of the business records of your therapy service.

Who Would Benefit from This Course?

This course is designed to take you from complete beginner to Sports Massage Practitioner and business owner. The course is also applicable to sportspersons and those already working in the sports industry who would like to broaden their skill set and gain more knowledge of the body and the benefits of sports massage. The skills and knowledge gained from the Sports Massage Practitioner Course would be useful to massage therapists looking to add additional treatments to their service offering.
