2021 Level 3 Diploma in Holistic and Therapeutic Massage

Our Diploma course has a very vibrant approach, giving a sense of depth and richness that is found on very few courses in massage. This is combined with the dynamics and energy of a team of tutors, with a wealth of skills and experience in both massage therapy and education in the adult learning and training sector.

We are planning two 'taster' sessions in the autumn and the dates will be published as soon as we are able to open the therapy rooms. At this time, the safety of our therapists and students is paramount. 

Taster sessions are normally held at our Wottoon and Drys Sandford Venue, running between 1400 - 1600. They provide you with the opportunity to meet the OSM Team, talk to graduates and current students, watch a demonstration of the OSM style of massage as well as have a "hands on go" at massage. You can also receive a 15 minute massage with one of our students should you wish too. 

Cost £30.00 payable in advance, please click on the request prospectus link below and state that you are interested in the taster sessions. We will then be in touch with you.
