Level 3 Certificate in Swedish Massage

Our next 200-hour intensive Level 3 Certificate course in Swedish (Holistic) Massage (accredited by FHT) runs over four weekends in four months in Leamington Spa, starting 19th September 2020.

The perfect course for complete beginners who are looking to qualify as a professional massage therapist. It includes seven days of hands-on massage training. For those who do not have an existing Anatomy & Physiology qualification, this can be completed online at the same time (see details below).

A wonderful massage in its own right, Swedish (Holistic) Massage is regarded as the basic massage training course from which to build your other massage techniques. It’s the most commonly used qualification type for body massage that provides an excellent platform for further learning.

In the video below, Kathryn Ellis, founder of Central School of Massage, explains more about the course, who it is right for, how we teach it, and how you will be assessed.

Our course focuses on establishing great techniques from the start. We emphasise good posture and body mechanics to ensure that you learn how to use your body with the minimum of effort and maximum of ease. We want to make sure our students are equipped with the best skills to guarantee a long-lasting career.
