Massage Therapy Training - Level 3 Diploma

with Amy



Massage has been a core part of my life for over 13 years. In that time I have been lucky enough to work in some incredible places and meet some of the most beautiful people imaginable. It most certainly has been a life worth living! Over those years I have grown, changed and evolved how I treat people and use massage as a tool for healing. I have been blessed to work alongside exceptional health professionals from physiotherapists and surgeons to shamans and seen first hand what a community of people working towards supporting someone can achieve.


Massage is magic, supported by a tonne of science - what's not to love?!

  • I have never massaged before! Can I join as a total beginner?
    Yes! Our training is designed to be accessible to a complete beginner. All we ask is that you have a passion to learn.
  • Can I join the training just because I want to learn and not become accredited?
    Of course! If you want to come and have an amazing time learning a new life skill then you are very welcome. You will not have to do the external modules however we recommend that you do still do the assessment, that way if you want to change your mind and upgrade to being fully accredited, you can! Until then, your certificate will clearly say that you are not liable for insurance or employment as a qualified massage therapist.
  • What do I need to do before I arrive on the course?
    Ideally, you will have completed the three online training modules in Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology, Health & Hygiene and Business, that we arrange for you, before you join your training retreat. However, this is not compulsory and your are able to complete these modules after the training retreat has ended. Please be aware, until these are completed you will not be able to seek insurance or employment as a fully qualified massage therapist so, the sooner the better! That means, if you are not joining us for qualification and just to learn a wonderful life skill, this is not compulsory. There are four, short modules that have a simple assessment that ALL students are required to complete before training begins. These are sent to you via email to do in your own time and are vital to you being prepared to start the in person element of the training.
  • What is and isn't included?
    The prices you will see on the booking pages automatically includes your Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology, Health & Hygiene and Business modules. If you are opting out of accreditation, this cost is removed so you never pay for something you don't get and can take £300 off of the total price. The total costs include - All external modules with ThinkTree. - All Next Wave coursebooks. - All inclusive training retreat inc. accommodation, delicious food and all tuition. - All certification and assessments. - Continual support and case study assistance after your training retreat. We do not include - Any insurances inc. student and travel insurance. - Travel to and from the training - a complimentary airport shuttle will be in place for trainings outside of the UK.
  • Can I spread the in person training out over different trainings?
    Sadly, this is not an option.
  • I am a light sleeper, will private rooms be available?
    Yes! We make sure that there are private rooms available on our trainings for anyone that knows they need their own space for a perfect nights sleep. However, these are often the first rooms to sell out so grab them fast!
