Course information

3 day course plus assessment.

Level 3 certificate in Swedish massage – this treatment is an extremely desirable qualification to hold. It is the stepping stone to many other qualifications such as, Hot Stone Massage, Bamboo massage, Sports and lymphatic drainage Massage. A full body Swedish massage can relax, stimulate, and ease stress, pain and muscular tension. Your body massage training will enable you to contribute to your client’s physical and mental wellbeing. Most Salons and Spa owners would expect a therapist to hold this qualification.

The Cottage Training Centre, based in Park Gate, Southampton & Ottourebourne, Winchester offers you the opportunity to gain this certificate in a short timescale without compromising standards. The time frame for completing this qualification is down to the individual completing case studies, written work and the anatomy and physiology.

The Anatomy and Physiology is included in this qualification. This is learnt via an online learning resource, Essential Training Solutions. This is £30.00 which is included in the training fees.

You can either take this as a VTCT qualification recognised worldwide or The Cottage certificate accredited by the guild of beauty recognised in the UK.
