Swedish massage, deep-tissue massage, and sports massage are just a few of the many modalities of massage therapy.

  1. Assists you in your journey to be able to give a great massage.


    The course is great from the perspective of one who needs advice on how to give a great massage! Many thanks from me and my family and friends that have benefited from my putting the instructions on massage technique into practice!

    However, I found the first 3 days of the course frustrating as I was constantly locked out of the course – having to spend over an hour on the phone getting it up and going each day. This finally settled down so that from then on, I was able to access my course whenever I wanted. On a positive note, the staff that I spoke with on the phone were polite and did manage to get me reconnected and resolve my difficulties. For this I would like to thank them.

    The course uses a lot of YouTube video’s to assist in training. Most of these are interesting and informative, but some won’t play at all, and to be honest, I found that searching for myself on the various subjects led to me finding much more valuable information.

    The course itself seems to be a bit of ‘copy and paste’ from a variety of other publications. There are references to attached photos that aren’t to be found, references to look up that aren’t linked, etc. One of the publications that is used in the Medical Massage section is just a ‘copy/paste’ from extremely outdated publications, referencing conditions that are no longer recognised by their antiquated names, such as apoplexy, plethora, hysteria, etc. One portion even gave the major reason for dysmenorrhea (period cramps) to be women who lace tightly! In a modern study of massage as a therapy, surely a brief glance of the history and previous understandings are essential, but should be focused primarily on the application for modern usage.

    When it came towards the end of the course, a major part of the course dwells on aromatherapy, but unfortunately, this part does not cover all of the questions that will be asked of you in the final test. I did a lot of extra research and investigation when I covered this section, but I could still not answer all of the questions correctly in the final test, much to my frustration. There were questions asked which were not covered in the course work: eg. which of these 4 oils are insect repellent? . . . (the oils mentioned are not referred to in the course work at all).

    And in reference to the mock and final test, don’t do as I did and click on the ‘start quiz’ to the right of the mock page, as it then goes straight to the final exam! I didn’t realise that I was doing the final exam until I had finished it, being under the impression the ‘start quiz’ on the mock page was going to just start the mock!

    There were also a few discrepancies in questions in the final exam – you are asked the place of origin of Shiatsu massage. The options give Japan and China. This question is misleading, as Shiatsu is a Japanese massage based on ideas in traditional Chinese medicine. So depending on how you read the question would give you a different answer! Shiatsu MASSAGE is Japanese, Chinese MEDICINE influenced it. The only answer that is accepted in the exam is ‘Chinese’.

    Lady Maury’s works are mentioned in one question – which condition did her work not address? The course work does not give you the answer to this question either.

    I also noted several questions that used double negatives – for example: ‘which of the following would you not do?’ A, B, C, D – none of the above. I understood what the question and answers were, but this form of questioning is not easy for language students or ones that struggle with double negative proposition. This is a massage diploma exam course, not an English language course!

    In short, I would recommend this course for anyone that would love to discover more techniques and instructions on how to perform a most gorgeous massage on a loved one or friend. But passing the exam is going to be based more on guesswork than skill. You will learn a lot that will be used to answer the questions, but you will be asked questions that you haven’t been prepared to answer.

    So in conclusion, try this massage therapy course! Whether you pass the final exam at the end or not will not affect your ability to delight and relax your family and friends. They will thank you for your purchasing the course!
