Body Massage Course

Body massage is one of the essential skills for all beauty therapists. On this course you will learn how to conduct a client consultation and perform a luxurious, full-body massage using professional techniques for the ultimate in relaxation treatments. The two day massage course also includes how to massage areas of the face, scalp and how to use infra-red heat, gyratory machines and audio-sonic vibration. We recommend this course to anyone who wishes to become a mobile therapist, although you also have the option of gaining an NVQ qualification with this course too, which is often looked for by employers in spas and salons.

Our previous students say:

We would recommend the Carlton Institute to anybody wishing to learn massage and would like to say thank you for the whole experience. From the beginning, when we booked the course, the staff were polite and helpful on the phone, through to our training with our tutor who was amazing. Thanks again!
