BODY MASSAGE is a treatment which is based on the consideration to the client, his or her needs at the time of the massage.
The student is taught a series of techniques which are at times soothing to alleviate stress and at other times slightly stimulating to improve circulation and any particular non medical conditions which may concern the client.
The student will be shown how to prepare the massage bed to enable the client maximum enjoyment and relaxation for the duration of the massage.
The opportunity exists for the Body Massage student to sit CIBTAC International examinations after their training during the annual College International examinations if they so desire. More information can be gained from the college regarding these exams.
