The atmosphere in our classes is that to enhance your learning and to help you to feel comfortable, there is always time to have your questions answered and if need be, have a technique demonstrated again.
The instructor demonstrates each technique, then students practice the strokes with the support from our instructor, then the students change over (so you work on another student and they work on you!). You don’t require any prior learning in health or massage to complete this course, just a passion for learning! This course is perfect for complete beginners, or experienced therapists wishing to refresh their skills. We will assist you in finding the perfect massage stroke and show you all the handy tips and tricks which result in an amazing massage.
Whether you are intending to practice professionally or learn the skills to help your family and friends, this course will teach you techniques that will transform you into a confident and competent therapist.

The course was not what I had expected it to be; I learnt a great deal more than I anticipated. The majority of the course was dedicated to demonstrations and hands on learning, which helped immensely. Every technique that Sue and Peter taught was practiced by all of us, so we had an understanding of what was required and how it all works. Sue and Peter are extremely knowledgeable and professional. They would assist to make sure the correct technique was being used. I found the structure of the course was designed to ensure success and a proficient understanding of massage. Overall I found the course to be highly enjoyable and I recommend it for anyone who wishes to learn massage.
I have just completed the two and a half day Massage Course with Massage & Kinesiology. I must admit to having mixed feelings about my ability to learn and keep up with the hours of the course. This was an extremely supportive, friendly and nurturing weekend for those of us who attended. Questions were answered patiently and in a manner easy to understand, all participants were given individual support and the weekend breezed by. Techniques were demonstrated and explained clearly and with patience. I am so pleased that I decided to take up the challenge to learn something new. The Instructors are extremely professional and knowledgeable tutors who make each participant feel welcome and supported. I’m certainly looking forward to participating in more of their courses.
I was wanting to do a ‘proper’ massage course, and learn and understand how to do all the basic techniques correctly i.e. to professional standard. I found this Full Body Massage 3 Day intensive course was what I’ve been looking for. It was Great!! It had the necessary theory (which wasn’t at all boring!) to understand the how’s, why’s, where’s, and when not to’s regarding massage, ‘to keep it safe for myself and any future clients’. They gave full-on support, encouragement and hands-on demonstration when needed (which made you feel comfortable and reassured and helped to build your confidence). I recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how to do the basic properly – and go from there!
