Feedback from our students

“I expanded on my previous beauty qualification and added many new massage skills, which immediately led to industry recognition and several job offers. Laura Kavanagh has a wealth of knowledge and a fabulous teaching style. She inspired and encouraged me throughout the course and I thoroughly recommend this hands-on experience.” Carolyn Stafford 

“Not only did the massage therapy course provide me with a brand-new career later in life, it also gave me the confidence to start my own business and study further educational information about this career path. It has been an immeasurable boost to my self-worth and has tremendously increased my ability to share my new love and passion for massage. Oh and Laura the teacher is a goddess ” – Marcus Irwin
