VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Massage (QCF) – Massage Course in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

Important Announcement

From July 2022, Kerry, the lead tutor at Cheltenham School of Complementary Therapy & Beauty will be taking a sabbatical, for an academic year. Every teacher needs to make time to learn and 2022-2023 will be Kerry’s time to learn. This will mean that the school will either operate at a very low level or perhaps will not be offering any training at all. If you’ve been putting off making a change and have considered studying Reflexology, Massage, Aromatherapy and more, this really is the year to do it!

Train to become a professionally qualified Massage therapist by attending our massage course in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

Swedish Massage is a very popular complementary therapy.  We believe that massage is more than a ‘treat’, something that people will do in order to feel physically and mentally better.  We will train you in massage, with this ethos in mind.

We teach you how to massage most areas of the body, so on completion of the course you would be able to offer a full-body massage, as well as the ever popular back massage to clients.  You will be given a lot of practical advice and personal feedback in our small group setting.
