We’ve Trained Thousands of Students With Our Accredited Courses


Covid-19 Update, 8th March 2021 – It’s great to be back in the classroom!

I am pleased to confirm that, following the recent government announcement, we have restarted hands-on practical in classroom training today!

The Institute has had enhanced protocols in place since July 2020 so that students can undertake and complete their professional qualifications in a safe environment.  If you would like to know more about the measures that have been put in place please email .

Our Diploma Courses in Massage, Sports Massage, Reflexology and Aromatherapy commencing in March and April are mostly full.  If you would like a place please get in touch as soon as possible.

If you are looking to start your hands-on, in classroom, practical training in May and June, don’t forget you can start preparing for the Course today with the videos and accompanying notes on the Institute Virtual Learning Environment.

It has been wonderful to see the enthusiasm from the students (and tutors!) who have enjoyed getting back into a physical classroom and hands-on again!
