Holistic Massage Practitioner Diploma 2-Day Course with existing A&P qualification.

This holistic massage practitioner diploma includes our popular Guild-accredited Anatomy and Physiology online home study course followed by a 2-day practical, assessment and short test. The course notes will be sent to you so that you can study and complete the required test before you attend on the course dates. The course will included the theory required to become a professional massage therapist, including consultation, contra-indications, aftercare and the history and benefits of massage.

Holistic (or swedish) Massage involves the manipulation of the body's soft tissue (the skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments) using the hands in a gentle, flowing massage technique that uses varying degrees of pressure and stretching movements. It is most commonly used for relaxation, improving well-being and lymphatic drainage. This course is a full Holistic Body Massage Practitioner's Diploma Course, and is designed for those who wish to become professional massage therapists. It builds on knowledge provided in our Introductory course and is a must for therapists with an existing A&P qualification who wish to offer full body treatments.

After being awarded this Diploma, students will be able to obtain insurance to practice Holistic Body (Swedish) Massage professionally. Course notes will be forwarded to you before you attend the course and there will be a knowledge test on the day. This two-day course included the theory required to become a professional massage therapist, including consultation, contra-indications, aftercare and the history and benefits of massage.
