At Green Tara College we teach a fabulous  in-depth deep tissue healing massage using Swedish  massage techniques which can be used for many ailments especially for deep healing and relaxation. Many of the techniques and methods of applying this massage have been developed and streamlined by Majella during her 30 years of experience.  This treatment that we will teach you , in comparison to others, is without doubt a deluxe holistic massage.

Image by Jürgen Rübig from Pixabay Our sincere aim is to encourage each individual student therapist to develop your own natural skills and gifts to enable you to use your gifts to streamline treatments to your individual client’s needs, be they family, friends and/or the professional client.

We also teach from a spiritual & holistic perspective for anybody who is interested in developing skills to tune into your client’s needs – physically, emotionally and mentally, bringing to them the treatment that best meets their needs.  You can take away what works for you on an individual level. You will truly notice the difference in an energetic massage treatment.

Holistic Massage 

Image by Heike Frohnhoff from Pixabay Holistic massage is a deeply relaxing massage experience that treats the mind, body and spirit. It is one of the most popular forms of massage offering a beautiful, relaxing and nurturing treatment. The massage is a complete full body massage to include: legs, back, abdomen, feet, hands, face, head, shoulders, neck, and upper torso.

Our ITEC Holistic Massage course is focused on bringing a deep nurturing treatment to your client. While students learn all of the syllabus – from the workings of muscles to understanding the Anatomy of the body to giving a wonderful deep massage – the training is truly holistic at Green Tara College.

Subjects Covered:

Upon completion of the course, students will be qualified to carry out a holistic full body massage as an Holistic Therapist. The student will have acquired the skills to communicate and facilitate the client in consultation.  The student will have an ingrained knowledge of energy management.
