Ayurveda means 'the wisdom of life' and is an ancient Indian system of healing which involves herbs, yoga and massage. This course introduces the principles of Ayurveda and will teach you how to analyse your client's Ayurvedic body type. You will learn about the traditional uses of oils in massage, and how to select the right ones for your clients. Ayurveda massage has its own set of massage moves and we will teach you how to use these in a full one-hour massage routine to use with your clients.
The course includes a lot of information about diet, lifestyle and keeping healthy using the principles of ancient Indian wisdom. This is a valuable addition to a massage therapist's skills, and it will also be of interest to yogis and to yoga teachers.

Beautiful Backs Course
This course combines two skills to teach you an up-to-date treatment which is very popular with clients who want to wear swimwear, strappy tops halter-necked dresses. You will learn a perfect, relaxing massage of the back, neck and shoulders with beautiful oils or cream AND a treatment to help the condition of the skin in these areas.
Many clients have issues with their backs - blemishes, oily irritated skin, dry skin or overexposure to the sun. The back facial or 'bacial' is proving a popular option with both men and women clients.
The first stage of the treatment is a scrub to thoroughly cleanse the back, followed by a mask to help improve circulation and the texture of the skin. Finally, an appropriate mix of natural oils or a luxurious massage cream is used to carry out a holistic massage of the back, neck and shoulder areas.
We will use a variety of different products and oils during the course and you will learn about their different properties and uses. You will learn how to mix your own carrier oil blends, scrubs and masks as well as how to select and use suitable products from trade sources.
There are lots of options for adding your own signature to this treatment, from producing bespoke handmade scrubs and masks to using luxurious organic products from exclusive suppliers. The course offers you the opportunity to learn new techniques and combine them into a therapy that will suit your clients perfectly!
This is a couch-based massage therapy although you could also use a futon or yoga mat on the floor. The clothing does need to be removed from the upper body and the client should be draped appropriately.
This is an excellent course for total massage beginners! It is a good opportunity to try out a body massage therapy and see whether you want to do a full Holistic Massage course.
Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage is one of the most popular treatments, so this is a wonderful chance to learn something you can use straight away with clients!
You do not need Anatomy & Physiology to do this course as all the relevant theory is included. Assessment of your practical skills will be continuous throughout the day, with emphasis on your final treatment. There will also be a short written test.
The course is accredited by for membership and insurance. You can also insure direct with Westminster Indemnity from this website. You may be able to
add it to your existing policy if you are already a therapist but please do check as some companies and professional bodies will only insure courses run by their own members.
When you are ready to book, email to confirm your dates, and we will explain how to pay for your course.
