Learn Swedish body massage

Holistic Accredited Swedish Diploma Massage Course

The aim of this course is to teach you, the student, about the basics and complete methods used for Swedish massage. You will learn the appropriate movements, and anatomy and physiology as it relates to this course and sequences for general massage routines and a full body relaxation Swedish massage.

Part one – This covers the history of massage, background, general benefits, contra indications, and the equipment and products that are needed. In addition, pre treatment procedures are dealt with and we discuss two methods of covering a client prior to and during a treatment.

Part two – Covers anatomy and physiology of the human body and its body systems as they relate to Swedish massage treatments. This part will also introduce anatomical terms that are commonly used by therapists.

Part three – Swedish massage movements are explained and how to utilize them in a treatment. We look at a description of general all purpose Swedish massage of each part of the body. In addition, there is a routine for a full body relaxation Swedish massage with full descriptions of sequences for each part of the body that can be adapted for any client that you may encounter.

The importance of intelligent touch cannot be overstated. A conceptual basis for intelligent touch through the value of therapist intent and presence is also presented in this course.

What a wonderful school and what a great course the Swedish Massage was and excellent way to learn about the history, technique and everything in between. I was surprised to see how much information was provided for this course and how easy it was to follow along. When I completed the course I was able to complete case studies with ease and confidence. I would highly recommend this school for anyone seeking to become a holistic health professional. There are many courses offered and in a variety of areas. Kristina Barnes – Canada

It was a very informative course. I took my time with this course as there was so much information to digest. I feel like it truly gave me the knowledge to feel confident in my role as a therapist.
