Massage has been a fundamental tool for restoring health and well-being. This unique profession blends ancient healing with modern science and gives the therapist a truly unique feeling of knowing they are directly improving the health and well-being of a client. In class, students will be taught to deal with a wide range of problems utilising basic and advanced massage techniques. Our massage therapy programs focus on “hands-on” learning. This allows students to immediately put theory into practice. Students will also get to practise their skills in our Student Clinic. This is a great opportunity to learn massage skills in a real life setting.
