Training Courses in Massage, Holistic Therapies and Beauty

Combine a trip to sunny Spain with a course to learn massage or beauty therapies! All courses are one to one on dates to suit you, so contact me if you'd like to book to arrange your class. Then relax with evening yoga classes and weekend workshops in gentle Dru Yoga to help you relax and make the most of your time.

Do you live in Spain? Then come along and learn something new to add to your skills!

All the summer courses in Spain are held in Conil de la Frontera, Cadiz. This is a seaside town on the Costa de la Luz (Atlantic Coast) - it is popular with Spanish families, and has a wonderful, 'real Spain' atmosphere all year round as well as beautiful scenery, wide sandy beaches, lots of activities such as surfing and kite surfing and in the area there are some very interesting historic towns and villages to visit, such as Vejer de la Frontera and Medina Sidonia.

Our holistic therapy courses are all accredited and insurable with UK professional organisations and insurers so they are suitable for professional practice in the UK. Our accrediting bodies are Guild of Holistic Therapists who have members throughout the UK and Spain and Professional Ethical Practitioners. If you are a yoga teacher, you may well be able to add the course to your existing insurance. Check with your provider.

Insurance is available for therapists with UK qualifications who are working in Spain - Balens are an established provider who have insured some of my students on an individual basis.

Students who want to learn for personal interest are welcome - massage and beauty therapies are great for sharing with friends and family!

Students are responsible for arranging their own travel and accommodation whilst in Spain. All courses are booked and must be paid for in the UK via the booking agent London Therapists in advance. Payment can be made online via a secure link or over the phone. Prices for the courses are the same as we charge in the UK.

Full day courses are from 9.30am to 1.30pm and then 5pm to 7pm (this is a full day’s timetable)

Half day courses MORNING half day courses are from 9.30am to 1.30pm (this is a half-day timetable.

EVENING courses are from 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm

Courses may be timetabled as one or more full days or one or more half days, as indicated. Body Massage courses will normally be half days due to the heat in summertime.
