Holistic Massage Therapy Training

The 30 hour Holistic Massage Therapy Level 1 NZQA Qualification will teach you how to massage in a safe and truly effective way even if you have had no other experience with massage. It is an entry level training that allows you to start doing full-body relaxation massage work either for yourself or someone else - like a spa or cruise ship or beauty clinic.

The key lies in understanding the anatomy and functioning of not only the musculo-skeletal system - bones, joints and muscles - but also the Nervous System. A positive relationship between therapist and client creates a climate where powerful self-healing mechanisms can be activated, leading to immediate benefits across a wide range of conditions.

In order to provide the best results the course has been developed in tutorials that focus on your learning to a standard where it will be effective and beneficial.The tutorials are generally spaced out so you have time to integrate what you learn. It is possible to do an intensive, 4 day, course too.

Course Content:

Whole-body techniques for addressing the back, shoulders, legs, feet, arms, hands, neck, face and scalp are demonstrated, with opportunities for lots of supervised practice with varied clients to thoroughly prepare you.

To receive the NZQA Certificate, you must complete the following requirements:

The course comes with a comprehensive illustrated Manual and Massage Techniques DVD. Criteria for the Assessment are clearly outlined and shown in the DVD and you can use them during your practice sessions.

Course fees for one-to-one tutorials are paid for after each tutorial and come to a total of under $1000. Weekend workshop fees depend on the number of participants and location, and are usually around $400 per person (for a minimum of 6 participants).

If you organise a workshop in your area (put up advertising, arrange a suitable venue, etc.) you can attend the workshop for 50% less than the fee.

The tutor-student ratio is 1:6 to ensure close coaching. The course is available in Auckland and can be organised in other areas for a minimum of 6 and the addition of travel expenses.
