What others say about the tuina training

Stuart Parker - May 2016

I have just completed the Tui Na Chinese Massage Foundation course and both I and all of my fellow students would agree that it was an amazing experience. The support and professionalism of the Bodyharmonics Team is outstanding. Having been a Soft Tissue Therapist for 15 years and experienced training at many good schools of massage I would say this is without doubt the best course I have ever undertaken. More details


Tui Na Chinese Massage on the Back Tony Wright Bsc 2001 - 2005

From day one of the course, taught by Maria, Trevor and Graham Mercati, I was captivated by the knowledge, skill and love of their work. The training was intense and a lot was expected of students - mainly to work very hard and learn. The first time Maria demonstrated a technique on me I knew I was in the right school. More details

"We believe students trained at your school are mostly exceptional and impressive."

Alan Orr - 1997
"I have been teaching martial arts for many years & have travelled the world to find the right teachers in the time. You really cannot miss the opportunity to study with the right teachers when you find them.
Having access to the years of knowledge that Maria holds and shares is a true gift!" More details

Liz Cunningham - Qualified in Tuina, Thai and Indonesian 1997 - 1999
I would like to say to both yourself and Trevor how grateful I am to have received my Tui Na, Thai and Indonesian massage training within the Mercati family. I think you're a shining light to us all not only in the way you conduct your business, but the care you take of your own. You are the most selfless person I have ever had the privilege to have met, and I will always be proud to say who trained me.
