2. 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 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.

Who would benefit from this course?

Many aromatherapists choose to focus on the beauty elements of their course and work in salons giving massage and facials. Others find the clinical element more interesting. Some work in hospices and hospitals giving support to ill patients. Many work with dementia patients in care homes to improve their cognition and giving additional support to their families. Some work as doulas helping babies come happily into the world. A large percentage of aromatherapists run businesses which are a melting pot of all of these elements. This course can also be used for your own personal health and wellbeing.
