What Our Graduates Have To Say

"I feel confident was massage a pregnant lady now and know how to positione her so that she's comfortable"
"A thoroughly enjoyable course. I have learned a lot today, very useful for my career. Julie is an excellent tutor. The whole day was very well planned and paced"
"Just massaged a client who was 38 weeks pregnant, all over massage including the "bump", thanks to your training I feel so confident doing pregnant ladies and their babies. I so LOVE my job. Could do with a few more clients though! Thanks again ;-)"
"I just want to say how much I enjoyed the course on Monday. It was extremely informative and I now feel confident to treat pregnant clients. It met all my expectations and then some! Julie was an amazing tutor who really inspired me!!" LM
Julie was very warm and welcoming. She gave very good feedback, constructive criticism and positive reinforcement when required. This course empowered me to use my training and techniques in a positive manner to be able to successfully cater and treat pregnant women, so neither the client or therapist misses out. Would recommend this course for any complementary, holistic or sports therapist. Amy J Nov 2021
"The course was very well organised with clear communication. I had recieved all the additional resources in advance of the course, which allowed me to review and recap with plenty of time to digest the information. I felt everyone had plenty of time to go through the practical elements, nothing was rushed. All questions answered.
