What will I study?
Tibetan Hand and Arm
About Tibetan Massage Ku Nye: Pronounced Coon-Yee, in its most simple terms means Ku to apply oil and Nye - to massage. This wonderful, ancient massage has taken place throughout the Himalayan region and Tibet for thousands of years and draws on Indian, Chinese and Persian wisdom as well as its own traditions. As with many Eastern massage treatments, it uses a holistic approach in viewing the body as a whole and balancing energy flow and life-force as well as physical benefits. Tibetan Medicine believes that we are made up of five basic elements: earth, water, fire, wind and space. It is the wind element that is the focus of Ku Nye.
The hands-on techniques applied in Tibetan massage are surprisingly similar to those used in Western methods! Such methods include rubbing, kneading, stroking and stimulation of acupressure points. The oil/medium used in the massage treatment not only provides slip for the therapist, but binds the wind element in place and brings it into balance.

Thai Foot Massage (Nuat Phaen Boran)
As we know it today is an ancient, holistic treatment passed down from generation to generation over thousands of years but it has clearly stood the test of time. And not without reason! This course will teach you some wonderfully relaxing and healing massage techniques. It is still taught by Buddhist monks in the temples of Thailand, and it incorporates elements of Shiatsu, Reflexology, Chinese massage and Yoga. We focus on a more straightforward routine; no sticks are used (but you can always incorporate them later) - so it is also suitable for foot-massage beginners...
Indian Head Massage
This course is an extremely effective therapy that has evolved from traditional techniques practiced in India as part of family rituals for over a thousand years. The techniques taught are true to the original massage brought over to the UK from India.
No prerequisite training is needed - beginners also welcome - you will receive a Certificate of Attendance rather than the insurable CPD Diploma for existing/insured therapists.
We can upgrade your Certificate to Diploma (no cost) should you go on to become a professional therapist.
How will I be assessed?
You will be assessed by your practical assessment, after successfully completing the course you will receive a Blackburn College Certificate of attendance.
