Massage: Professional Level Courses in London

Do you want to train as a massage therapist? Our professional massage courses give you a recognised qualification from ITEC (International Therapy Examination Council), allowing you to gain insurance via EMBODY and practise aromatherapy professionally.

The majority of our massage students completing professional level qualifications continue straight on into employment with providers including the NHS and Neal's Yard, or into self-employment with Urban Massage or privately as massage practitioners.

Many of our courses are delivered online. For more information about our live online courses, please see our guide to online learning.
