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.

Clinical

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 Level One – S1

For most of this day-course, you will be at the helm, palpating key muscles, practicing the flowing Hydrotherm techniques, or setting up the system for yourself.

By the end of the course you’ll understand the essentials and feel confident and excited about your future, delivering a better, more restorative massage for your clients.

Hydrotherm Tranquil Sea, Massage for those with 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.
