Why Choose My Beauty School?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

The fact that I offer bespoke training gives you the thorough individual attention within a small class, therefore benefiting immensely by maintaining more information within a smaller time frame and more practical skills being established. I focus on posture & pressure which a lot of schools/colleges don’t. This is a very important factor for Therapists with keeping our joints supple.

£65 for 2 hours per couple for beginners

 £85 per couple for intermediate session   



                          Accredited by Balens and Thinktree                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Do you know somebody that would benefit from a massage knowing the correct way to do it and the effects of massage and helping them with pain relief ? Muscles stimulated in the correct way respond more and therefore function better so massage is best done knowing the muscles, the different techniques and pressure.
A sports person, gymnast or a dancer will greatly benefit from having massages to strengthen and tone muscles and prevent injury. Perhaps you are a parent with a child that could benefit from the course, think how much more effective your child could be if you could regularly massage those muscles to ease tension and any aches and pains, helping them to perform better. Maybe your a carer wanting to help a person with poor muscles tone, also massage brings psychological affects.
