And why are we different?

We have a well grounded programme honed and evolved over 20 years
Our course is 205 hours including a residential weekend, the industry standard is 140 and the MTI minimum 160
Our graduates have the confidence to go straight into professional practice on qualifying and very many do
Good body use is the basis of our course. This means you don’t damage your own body leading to pain and early retirement from massage. It also improves the quality of your massage.
Self awareness and personal development - an essential and well supported part of the training
Anatomy, physiology and pathology taught in a thoroughly dynamic fun way and always related to massage practice
High staff:student ratio - a minimum of 1 tutor and 2 assistants to 22 students and often higher
Excellence is our standard
We don’t teach a routine, our massage is person centred, you have a tool box from which you can give an individual massage each time
At the end of the course each graduate has developed their own personal style, all different
The whole teaching team is ridiculously passionate about massage and massage teaching!
Applications are currently being accepted for the next course starting in February 2014

Supervision with Sarah Cohen

Sarah also offers group supervision at the Fold monthly on Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons

Supervision is a forum to enable practitioners to get their personal and professional needs met in a massage community setting. This may include sharing, celebrating, asking questions, practising techniques and experimenting – all within a safe, supportive and facilitated environment.

Supervision sessions also count towards Continuing Professional Development requirements for the Register of the MTI Professional Association.
