Do I need to be a therapist or have previous experience in any therapy to join the course and qualify?
You need NO previous experience in massage, however as it is a very personal and transformative treatment. It would be beneficial for you to have good communication and supportive skills as clients will often experience an emotional release, we give training on how to hold space for your client when this happens but you do need to have a level of compassion to put your client at ease.
Some people learn this treatment to use on their partners and family, and some people wish to learn for working with the public, you will need at least 3 case studies to work on, it's a good idea to make sure you can find these models before committing to the course.
How do I get clients after I qualify?
If you are new to this field of work and you don't have a client list it is something to take into consideration if you are looking to make a career out of it. The first base is to ask friends and family to be case studies for you, ask them for feedback, and for them to recommend you to their friends, social media is a great way to get business and for free, we will provide you with professional images and pre-written text for you to use. You will also have the opportunity to be added to our website and referral system.
Can I use the Harmony branding?
You will have access to a library of videos, images, and text adverts to use. You cannot call yourself The Harmony Massage as your business name but you can brand yourself as The Harmony Massage By…… (your name). You will be advertising the Harmony Massage as a treatment offered under your business name. We expect a level of professionalism from our therapists as they are an extension of our brand. If the ethics are breached we reserve the right to ask you to stop using the brand name.
How many hours does the online training take?
Allow up to 6hrs for the theory content. The online videos are just under 4hrs of running time however you will watch each video at your own pace, pausing to practice each move, depending on your speed of learning this could be anything from 20hrs upwards.

Is online training enough to qualify?
Our online training is very in-depth, it has everything you need to learn the treatment and carry it out at a professional standard. Before you gain the certification you will need to complete case studies and then an online zoom assessment where we will watch you carry out the full treatment from consultation to finish. If you have any problems or questions these will be addressed by one of the team, either by email or with a pre-booked interactive call. We do recommend where possible that you attend the hands-on training so that you can experience the treatment and moves yourself and we can fine-tune your techniques.
How much is the Assessment?
