Holistic Therapies Diploma
This is a course that covers the more popular therapies and packages them together in a single diploma. The course will take place on one dedicated day over a 16 week phase, (ie Monday or a Tuesday for 16 weeks). Examinations for each module of the course are by continual assessment with the Diploma being awarded on the successful completion of the course. As advanced lectures for this Diploma course, we look at and discus the advantages and disadvantages of being self-employed, advertising, room hire, staff employment and other treatment packages.

  • Treating the back by stretching, soft tissue manipulation and mechanical massage.
  • An introduction to the techniques of:
    (a) Shiatsu;
    (b) Accupressure;
    (c) Pain reflex zones and 'trigger' points;
    (d) Neuro-Muscular massage;
    (e) Connective Tissue massage.
  • Keeping records by chart method (body mapping).
  • Specific techniques for the treatment of lumbago and sciatica.
  • The setting and management of stretching and home help manipulations.

This course is a must for any person who is just starting out as a practitioner. There are huge financial savings to be made on this course, as opposed to taking each subject individually. Any student who can prove they have completed a module and wish to join the class can do so, whereupon the course price will be adjusted. Each student is required to complete a work-in-progress diary, which will be singed off by the course tutor at the end of each completed module.
