The career minded Chinese massage course

Chinese Tui Na massageThe only real barrier between you and a successful massage career is having an effective means of making people feel better. If you achieve that you're in business - fail and you'll be seeking another career path.

Chinese massage provides uniquely powerful techniques using acupuncture points to ease pain. Tui Na can control pain without the use of drugs which makes it more and more in demand.

Tui Na is Chinese massage therapy that works

Bypass the need to experiment and learn from Maria and Graham Mercati who have more experience teaching Tui Na at diploma level than any other teacher in the UK, having taught over 600 students during the last 21 years.
They have been practising the world's most tried and tested oriental therapies such as Tui Na massage, acupuncture, Thai and Indonesian bodywork and have well over forty years experience between them in delivering cutting edge physical Oriental therapy.

What our students say...
Sandra Cheyne Tui Na Foundation and Master Practitioner (2007)
"I was able to learn a skill I can use for many years. I was able to learn and understand at a rate for someone new to therapy like myself".

Phil Chivers Tui Na Foundation and Master Practitioner course (2004)
"The tutors are also practitioners with up-to-date practical experience of the techniques and their relative merits, not just trainers with largely theoretical knowledge and no recent experience. They installed confidence in the techniques and could provide practical advice for specific treatments/complaints. There was a friendly atmosphere- it felt like joining a family rather than attending a course. Supportive comprehensive notes were provided with good training facilities".

Maria's Tui Na for adults, Paediaetric Tui Na and Thai massage books are the original and the world's best selling books on these subjects and have been translated into many languages.
