What did you gain personally and professionally from the course?
Personally, I have become a calmer, more open-minded and better-grounded person. I didn’t realise the magnitude of this journey until a few years after completing the training and also becoming a parent, but Bodyology was definitely the starting point of it all. Professionally, once I had completed and passed my training I felt equipped to massage but not confident enough to open my own practice.
I took a few years out focusing on my young family, but I always knew I would return to massage when the time was right. That time was when my oldest child started school. Having the flexibility of working for yourself around school hours is totally invaluable!
What will you recommend future students to prepare for the course?
Definitely take the one-day introduction course and talk to Bodyology’s tutors about the content and expected levels of study before committing to the massage diploma.
In a perspective of few years after the course finished, how has your experience at Bodyology shaped what you do now?
Bodyology has given me the confidence to believe I am a good therapist. It has taught me to provide enjoyable and effective treatments that are led by the needs of individual clients, and to work with excellent posture. I have very high standards and expectations with regards to future training courses now. The next step will be to train in Sports and Remedial Massage.
