Hydrotherm Training

Hydrotherm courses will change your massage business. As part of our family, you will be able to take one of two routes on your Hydrotherm journey. Whether you opt for the anatomy-based Clinical route, or the restorative Spa & Holistic route, either one will provide you with the essential knowledge in Hydrotherm equipment setup and massage techniques, whilst allowing you to develop the skills that suit your business model.

All Hydrotherm courses are taught in one day and are designed to allow you or your therapists to get back to work as quickly as possible.

Spa & Holistic

The Hydrotherm spa route will provide you with the very best training in the essential, tactile, and experience-led Hydrotherm massages. As a beauty or holistic therapist, you want every second of your client’s experience to exude tranquillity.

Your spa or treatment room is their safe haven from the busy world outside, a place of rest and recuperation. Our one-day spa courses are specially designed to provide you with the core information and skills you need to use Hydrotherm and to deliver the most relaxing massage your client will ever experience.


The Hydrotherm clinical route will introduce you to the precision of understanding required to deliver remedial treatments to solve your clients’ physical problems.

You’ll begin to grasp the key principles of treating those who come to you with injuries.

The course will inform you of how to think laterally and creatively about injury management, as well as the names of key muscles, how to locate and treat them and how to continue your learning.

Hydrotherm Tranquil Sea, Massage for those with Cancer – S2/C4

Hands really can help heal. So many do not understand how physically arduous facing cancer can be, nor how draining the associated feelings of fear and loneliness can make it. Receiving a massage has been clinically proven to reduce anxiety and promote relaxation, leading to greater feelings of wellbeing, contentedness and acceptance.

The Hydrotherm Tranquil sea course has been specially developed to put you at ease emotionally and medically when dealing with those who have cancer. Crucially, you will learn that massage for those with cancer is perfectly safe, so long as a number of simple procedures and precautions are observed.

You will be shown how to provide a caring, informed massage which aims to alleviate symptoms of physical discomfort and emotional stress caused by conventional cancer treatments. There is simply no greater sign of compassion and care than that of offering emotional reassurance through touch.

Hydrotherm Applied Anatomy – C2 (clinical course only)

This course will change the way you think about the body. The Hydrotherm applied anatomy course teaches massage-relevant anatomy in a way that you’ve never been taught before. You may have learnt some muscle names, and perhaps even the names of some muscle attachments. But, how comfortable and credible do you feel that when treating someone, you really know your stuff? The crucial difference is that this course will teach you what those muscles feel like. You will be taught how to locate them by touch, not textbook.

With over 30 years of experience and success in training and delivering massage therapy, we know that learning by doing and feeling is the only way to truly learn massage therapy. If you value knowledge, hands-on experience, and being a step ahead, then this course is for you.


Therapists can expect:

  • To be taught the basics in how to assess a client, what to look out for posturally and habitually and how to discuss and record this information.
  • To be taught an array of the statistically most likely muscles to become injured or cause problems.
  • To be taught the origins, insertions and actions of these muscles.
  • To be taught some of the statistically most likely tendons and ligaments to become injured or cause problems.
