What is the course about?

The Introduction to Holistic Therapies course will provide you with the basic knowledge and hands-on experience required to provide a range of holistic therapies for safe use at home with friends and family. This will include fully clothed seated Indian head and shoulders massage, hand massage with essential oils, foot massage with and without oils, reflexology, and aromatherapy. You will explore necessary precautions throughout and may learn additional treatments to meet the needs of the class.

Why should I choose the course?

If you have an interest in holistic therapies and would like to gain the skills needed to perform a range of treatments, this course is ideal for you. This course will allow you to perform and receive therapies with professional guidance and gain experience before completing a full qualification. The course is also suitable if you have some experience in holistic therapies and are looking to broaden the range of holistic treatments you provide. The course is also applicable if you want help with relieving and dealing with stress, if you are interested in preventative healthcare, or if you want to add to your health and social skills. Giving a holistic treatment meets all five NHS criteria for mental wellbeing. The course may also be useful as evidence of practice in social care for relevant courses and careers.

What will I learn?

On this course you will practice and understand aromatherapy, reflexology, Indian head massage, massage techniques, process and principles, and the key necessary precautions.

You will be informally assessed by the tutor, and you will have the opportunity to self-assess your weekly progress using an individual learning plan. You will also complete a mini portfolio of assessments, handouts, and exercises. You will be observed and coached throughout the course.

What will the course lead on to?

We offer a huge variety of part-time adult courses to help you upskill, secure a promotion, get to university, or even just meet new friends. From higher education and professional courses to leisure courses, we will have something right for you. For further information contact our Learner Services Team.

Are there any links with industry and university?
