The result is a unique massage experience that can be both invigorating and energising and thoroughly relaxing both mentally and physically. You will learn techniques to relax and soothe your client yet refresh them ready for a day at the office

"If you’re wondering what course to do with Teach Therapy I can really recommend doing On-Site Massage. I finished the course last November and decided to invest in top of the range chair (£500 = wince) which then paid for itself by Christmas! The tutor, Michele Broom, was fantastic and gave great advice for stepping into the world of corporate massage :)" Sarah H 2011
