Entry requirements 18 years of age An adequate level of English Interest in body therapy Personal maturity Being able to perform massage How do we teach? Our philosophy is to create a fun and interactive environment. In our experience, when students are actively involved in learning, they will retain more information. In every session we combine teaching theory and practice to enhance the learning experience. You will learn anatomy and physiology using diverse and interactive techniques such as videos and building 3-d models. We teach massage using tutor demonstrations followed by supervised hands-on tuition. You will get a taste of life as a massage therapist on our ?clinic days? where you will treat paying members of the public in a ?real life? treatment scenario. You will also have the opportunity to do a placement enabling you to specialise in a specific area of massage and giving you a competitive edge before you have even qualified! Our tutors are dedicated to your development and success and are on hand outside the classroom to give you help and advice. As a Bodyology student you will have privileged access to the Study Zone which contains easy to follow interactive lessons, quizzes, workshops, videos and a library (also available to those without internet access).
