Katy Rogers

Just imagine you are in your treatment room, you can feel the warmth, you hear relaxing music playing in the background, you smell a wonderful aroma from your scented candle, the room is softly lit but you can see perfectly.

Your client is lying facedown on your therapy couch, you can see their bottom and legs are covered with a towel, and you are gently massaging their back with long deep strokes.

You hear them sigh and can feel their muscles relax under your fingertips as the stresses and strains of the day disappear with every massage stroke that you apply.

You are an expert, you have the power to help people relax and de-stress, you smile to yourself with pride, you have made your client's day a better day.

What is a Massage?

You probabably already know this, Massage is a hands on therapy where the practitioner strokes, kneads, vibrates, and strikes the muscle tissue of the client.

Of course you have heard that massage helps the client to

  • relax,
  • de-stress,
  • ease muscle tension,
  • speed recovery from injury,
  • reduce pain
  • increase the client’s range of movement.

Why become a Massage Therapist?

What if you could to help improve the health and wellbeing of other human beings?

As a massage therapist you provide a service to the general public. You are there to help other people feel relaxed and less stressed and better about themselves.

Using your skills as a masseur you will help to promote the workings of the parasympathetic nervous system which calms the body and induces a feeling of relaxation and peace in your clients.

As you watch your clients float out of the door with a serine smile on their face, it is a great feeling to know that you have changed someone’s day for the better.

Why choose a Home Study Course?

You can start straight away.

You can work from home, at a time that suits you. You fit your learning around your lifestyle.

"I would like to take this opportunity to say just how much I am enjoying this home study course, it is a brilliant way to be able to study in between my normal working shifts as a Nurse and a pleasant change from current my everyday employment." Janet Siarkiewicz UK

Of course you've heard that today’s online courses are very different than the old correspondence courses where you mailed your course notes and workbooks, where there were no videos, no audio explanations, just the written word.

Just imagine that you are attending your massage class and your tutor is demonstrating your massage techniques, once the class has finished, you have to go home and practice yourself, but you can't quite remember just what they did.

Wouldn't it be amazing if you could just watch that demonstration again

Well you can! Your massage course includes videos of all the massage techniques that you will use in you treatment, so if you are not sure of something, you can just quickly watch the video again, and hey presto, you know what you are doing.

And because you are given the course notes, videos and audio files, if you missed something first time round, you can read, watch or listen to it again and again and again.

"I was worried about completing an online course but everything was so straight forward and easy to understand that I had no need to ask for help and I really did learn eveything that I needed". Nicola Will UK

  • How to Perform a Client Consultation so that you can Check it is Safe to Carry out a Massage on Your Client - This allows you to check with the doctor if you have any concerns about the health of your client, or you can modify your treatment to meet your client's personal needs.
  • How to Prepare the Treatment Room for Your Body Massage Treatment - You can then create a warm comfortable, peaceful environment for your client, where they can relax and comfortable and just enjoy your massage.
  • Interpersonal Skills and Body Language - You can then put your client at ease and determine what problems they have and then determine the benefits that they can expect from the course of treatments.
  • How to keep Records - It is important to keep records of your treatments, you can use them to improve your client's treatment by modifying your treatment to meet your client's needs. Records are essential as in the unlikely event of a of an insurance claim against you, you have a written record of what you did and what you found.
  • Full Body Massage Routine - We have produced step by step, easy to follow instructions of how to carry out a full Body Massage. As well as written instructions, and descriptive diagrams, you can watch great videos that show you how the Massage techniques are performed. You can also listen to your really useful MP3 audio guide while putting your techniques into practice.
  • How to give client after-care advice. - You can give aftercare advice to your client to ensure they get maximum benefit from their treatment and so want to come back for more.
  • How to explain the Contra-actions relating to Massage. - You can explain the effects that your client can expect when having a Massage.

Your Body Massage Routine is described in four formats, all of which will help you to learn the routine.

  • A written description - You can read a description of each technique.  You can then make short notes so that you can perform the techniques in the order that they are described when you are performing a massage.
  • A diagram format - You can print off a copy for your own use. I think it’s a good idea to laminate them to protect them from oil.  You can then use them as a visual prompt when you are practising your massage treatments.
  • An Audio MP3 file - Your MP3 audio file acts as a verbal list describing the order and number of times you perform each technique. It helps you to get the timing of the massage right. The audio file could be played out loud or, loaded on an mp3 player, which you can then listen to when you perform the massage. 
  • Videos embedded in the course pdfs - You can watch the videos as many times as you like to see how the massage techniques are performed.  You can then practice these techniques on your client until you feel comfortable with them.

"I would like to say thank you so much for getting my assessment back to me so quickly.
I also feel that praise is important where it is due. It has been less than a week since I started the course and I am thoroughly enjoying it! The course material is excellent, everything is beautifully explained and I had no idea how exciting this would be when I booked it. I am finding it hard to put it down and would definitely recommend you to my friends!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" Suzanne Chapman Spain.

How to complete your case studies

You will need to complete three case study clients, this will consist of doing four treatments on three people, twelve treatments in all.

For each case study, print off a consultation pack. And three more ‘follow up to treatment form’ forms.

Perform a consultation

Perform a consultation for each client, as described in the Body Massage Course Notes.

This is to determine whether the client has any contra-indications to treatment, and thus whether it is safe to proceed with the course of 4 treatments.

If the client does have contra-indications to treatment. Then ask for a doctor’s permission if the contra-indications are major. Or modify the treatment accordingly if it is a minor contra-indication.

Prepare a treatment plan

Prepare a treatment plan for the course of four treatments. Do use the information that you gleaned from the consultation to determine the client’s problem areas and desired solution, and work together to agree the plan.

Perform a massage treatment

Set up the treatment area as described in the Massage Course Notes.

Inform the client how to prepare for the treatment as described in the Massage Course Notes.

Remember how important hygiene is and inform the client you are going to wash your hands. Telling them lets them know you are a professional therapist and take hygiene seriously.

Perform a massage treatment as described in the Body Massage Course Notes.

When you finish, again tell the client you are going to wash you hands and get them a glass of water.

Once your client is dressed you will:-

  • Assess how the treatment has gone by asking them how they feel.
  • Explain the possible contra-actions of having a massage treatment.
  • Give them their After Care advice.

All of which is described in the Massage Course Notes.

Give the client the follow up to treatment form and ask them to fill it in and bring to back when they have their next treatment.

Then using all the information you have captured above fill in the Massage Case Study PDF using Adobe Acrobat Reader 9 or above
