Level 3 Certificate in Swedish Massage

Course description

Massage can be studied independently from beauty therapy, making it ideal for those who wish to pursue it as a standalone career or simply to practice on family and friends. It is also a great starting point for those looking to continue into holistic therapies, such as reflexology, aromatherapy, Indian head massage and much more. 

This course is designed for complete beginners to massage. An intensive course taught over a seven day period, it focuses on providing you with a range of practical skills and theoretical knowledge, including anatomy and physiology, enabling you to perform massage to a professional standard.

What our graduates say

"I have really enjoyed studying my Level 3 Beauty Therapy course at IBHA. Our teachers Sam, Jodi and Debbie have been excellent and all have years of industry experience. The course is very detailed and I feel confident about going out and using my skills; it has also been great having the girls downstairs in the salon to mentor us too! IBHA also has the best CPD options and additional courses with industry leaders like Nouveau Lashes and Decleor. I'm so glad I chose to study here and will miss it lots when I graduate. Thank you so much." August 2017
