Massage Course Details

Accredited Diploma in On Site Massage

Chair massage is a very popular therapy due to its increasing acceptance in many situations. It is versatile and no clothing needs to be removed which means it can be offered in ‘open’ areas such as shopping centers, the office, at events, at festivals and for clients who have not received massage before.

The accredited diploma is for those who are already qualified in massage and who also hold an A and P qualification (some exceptions will be made for people who are medically trained if they wish to learn a massage technique to complement the work they do). It is an insurable course, which means you can practice on the public and charge for it. The course comprises of theory and practical modules as well as case studies and a final theory and practical exam.

The Chair Massage course is specifically designed for the back, neck, shoulders, the arms, hands and scalp. Seated Massage is also known as 'On Site Chair Massage' and 'Acupressure Massage'. It is designed to tackle the areas that build stress and tension from sitting at a desk, driving long distances and working long hours. It quickly relaxes the muscles while re-energising the recipient at the same time.

The massage sequence is unique to Hands On Health UK and is a collection of movements put together from years of experience in this field. It works on the muscles and pressure points on the upper body and the lower back. The massage is delivered in a way that gives maximum benefit to the recipient and at the same time puts little strain on your own body.

You will be taught many techniques so that the massage can be adapted to suit your client and their needs. Furthermore, the length of time of the treatment can be adapted to be anything from 10-25 minutes, which is the usual range for this type of treatment.

A comprehensive manual is provided for all students on a memory stick and will be sent to you in the post along with your course confirmation and directions to our teaching location. All Nottingham courses are taught at the comfortable venue of David Lloyd Leisure (Aspley Lane, Nottingham, NG8 5AR). There is a lounge/bar with a healthy menu range and refreshments throughout the day.

The course is carried out over two weekends. The day runs from 10-5pm. In between the two weekends you will be asked to carry out a number of case study treatments and document your outcomes and feedback. There is a practical and theory exam on the last day.

When you have successfully completed the course your certificate will be sent through the post and you have the option to go onto our register of on site massage therapists free for the first year. You will be contacted when on site massage work arises in your area. Before your first work assignment you will be given free induction, further training by Hands on Health UK and briefed about the job you are offered. As a free-lance therapist you can pick and chose the jobs that suit you.
