The Art of Holistic Massage

Celebrating 30 years of excellence in delivering Holistic and Therapeutic Massage courses in Oxford

Are you considering enrolling on our ITEC accredited courses? Our Holistic Massage Diploma course starting in September 2022. In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, working closely with our professional bodies and following the latest Government guidance, we have undertaken a rigorous risk assessment of every aspect of the School's operation, adopting best practice protocols to maintain a safe environment in our therapy rooms and making changes to our massage and other routines to ensure you can practise safely. All out staff have received Coronavirus training. We have now commenced enrolment for our 2022 course, early bird booking discount availabe. Please contact us for further details and to register your interest. Sarah Toplis School Principal

The School

Since 1988, OSM has been a centre of excellence for massage training, priding ourselves in offering small classes, with highly experienced tutors who will coach and support you throughout the duration of your qualification and beyond, in a friendly and caring environment.

We offer high quality accredited training courses in which we recognise the importance of the link between the physical body, the mind, and the emotions of both the therapist and the client in delivering a truly holistic massage treatment.

In addition to running our ITEC accredited Holistic Massage diploma, we will be offering ITEC accredited Aromatherapy Diploma and Reflexolgy Diploma in 2022. We are also developing a wide range of CThA approved continuing professional development courses for qualified massage therapists and introduction to massage courses throuyghout the year, which are open to everyone.

I believe COVID-19 will change the landscape of the complimentary therapy industry. We are navigating through uncharted waters.

We face new questions about our practice as therapists, but it is too early to say what long-term changes might be required.

The call to social distancing is the most effective means at curtailing COVID-19 and ensure our NHS does not become overwhelmed. Looking at what we must deal with right now and in the coming months, there are options available that can make our practices safer without being a heavy burden on therapists.

We will work with our industry regulators and courses accreditors to ensure our course material is updated and we will keep the latest guidance under review.

In 2021, I look forward to welcoming our students back into our therapy rooms and in 2022 launching our new ITEC Level 3  Reflexology diploma.
