We've been training massage therapists for over fourteen years

At Central School of Massage, we firmly believe that massage is the best ever form of hands-on treatment and 100% believe that it’s always a pleasure to help others through the power of touch. Each massage treatment should be easy for the practitioner to give and yet effective for the client.

So often we see therapists who are worn-out after years (or sometimes only months) of giving, giving, giving. Maybe the techniques they originally learned didn’t focus enough on the students’ own well-being, or maybe bad habits have just crept in. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

All our courses focus on developing great techniques from the very beginning. You’ll learn how to use your body to reduce the effort in how you work and how to look after yourself. Our intention is to guide you into having a long-lasting, pain-free massage career with clients who return again and again to receive your fantastic treatment.

We offer beginner courses in Swedish massage, Thai Yoga massage and Sports massage. We also offer advanced training in deep tissue massage, Table-Thai stretch massage, Pregnancy massage and Indian Head Our courses all take place here in Leamington Spa, with some courses available online using a combination of video & group coaching on Zoom . Whichever course you're interested you'll be assured of lots of personal attention as numbers are strictly limited to groups of 6-8 students. 1-2-1 trainin is also available on a bespoke basis.

So maybe you’re at the beginning of your massage journey and want to make sure you learn the best techniques from the start. Or maybe you’re searching for a better way to work that ensures you feel great at the end of a busy day of massaging. Or maybe you just want to learn a new, really exciting way of working.

Take a look at our courses and find the right one for you!
