Attend one of our courses and enjoy learning Deep Tissue Massage alongside other enthusiastic and friendly people. Our teachers are some of the best and most experienced in the UK and their training venues are professional, comfortable and safe. You can expect a warm welcome and lots of encouragement and caring guidance throughout your course.

Deep Tissue Massage treatments are perfect for tired and aching muscles – whether your client is a busy office worker, an amateur golfing enthusiast or a professional athlete . Our comprehensive Deep Tissue Massage intermediate level course explores a wide range of firm techniques, some of which  are remarkably similar to sports massage.

You will learn massage techniques for front and back body so that you can deliver a very effective and therapeutic treatment for your clients. You will learn both the theoretical knowledge and the practical skills to be able to competently perform this treatment to meet the needs of a range of clients.

After you’ve passed your course you can even adapt the routine yourself to offer a range of Deep Tissue Massage treatments such as a short, focussed back massage to help correct postural problems, a neck and shoulder massage to relieve tension and pain, or a full body deep tissue treatment that's both deeply relaxing and astonishingly therapeutic.

You can practice professionally with this qualification, read more below.

The Beauty Guild, IGCT, IICT & INHA.
Which companies offer me insurance with this Diploma? Many choices from reputable industry recognised insurers including: Westminster Insurance (our featured insurance company), Wellbeing Insurance, Towergate Insurance, The Beauty Guild, and the IICT.
Yes, all of our courses are suitable for professional practice*. And once you have acquired insurance cover our Diplomas allow you to offer treatments from your home, from a salon or as a mobile therapist. Working professionally means that you can charge a fee for this service.
*If you are seeking employment, always check with your potential employer (or local council if you wish to work in London) to ensure that this Diploma will be accepted by them.
Yes, there is time to learn all you need to know. And that’s because all our classes are small (between 2-8 participants) and so you'll receive plenty of focused guidance and individual attention from our teacher. You will be taught a complete therapy treatment routine for delivering to your clients. And because students practice upon one another, you will also experience for yourself how fabulous and effective this treatment can be. Or, if you choose to do solo training instead of class training, you will have all of the teacher’s attention throughout the full day of your training.
You will learn the same practical skills as you would learn on a longer course. The main difference between a long course and a short course is that you'll need to practice the treatment routine upon friends and family, in order to perfect the techniques till you feel super-confident. This will be easy to do - using your manual and (where available) our on-line tutorial videos for further assistance after your practical training.
You're always welcome to return and attend only the practical training again in order to refresh your practical skills. This is known as a refresher course and it allows you to brush up on the techniques you have learned with us. Refresher courses are only available to students who have previously completed their course with us, and substantial discounts are offered.
No, this is a Diploma course. Diploma courses are also known as ‘short courses’ or ‘fast-track training’. However, the treatment techniques you'll learn are similar, and in some cases more extensive than on a level 3 course.
In most situations you don't need a level 3 qualification in order to deliver this therapy professionally. However, some employers might want you to have a Level 3 qualification, and some London Borough Councils may specify it as a requirement for selling you a licence to practice in their borough.
You will be provided with your course manual in PDF format, and once you’ve read it you’ll be ready to complete your on-line test. This is a simple, multiple choice test with 45 questions. Our administration team will also be available to chat with you and help you to find out what you need to bring, and how you need to prepare, so that you are all set up to have a great time.
Yes, we do! And the first 3 months of access is totally FREE! These videos are great for you to use a week or 2 before your course practical so you can see what you’ll be learning, and then as a reminder of what you’ve learned, after you’ve completed your course. You can ALSO purchase this training video at our Vimeo.com channel if you’d like to watch it after the 3-month FREE period. These videos can either be downloaded or streamed directly to your TV or hand held device. Visit our Vimeo channel >
