There is a great choice of Massage Courses available at BSY.

With subjects ranging from Indian Head to Sports Massage courses, you will find a massage course to suit you at BSY, whether it is for personal enjoyment or professional development.

Melinda Moore chose to study the Sports Massage course as she had always wanted to be able to help people without the need for invasive procedures or medication.  She said, “I chose to study with BSY because it suits my lifestyle.  It allows me to work while I study at my own pace.  There’s no need for me to lose holiday.”  She hopes that in the future it will enable her to be able to help others, be they athletes or amateur sports people.  Other subjects that she might study in the future include Aromatherapy and Reiki.

Reina Kaur Sohanta decided to study Aromatherapy, which combines the benefits with the use of therapeutic essential oils.  She said that she wants to change career paths and she knows that this will give her opportunities and the skills “which will enable me to soar and flourish beyond my wildest dreams.”  Reina chose to study with BSY because, “the tuition, the support and the rate of success from qualified/graduated students is par excellence.”   She said that she has been happy with her ability to absorb information which is presented in such a clear, precise format and manner, and hopes that it will help her to become a competent, confident aromatherapist.

Judy Vidal said that she wanted to understand the theory of Eastern medicine, alongside western methods, so she chose the Gateways of Change massage course, whilst also studying Acupuncture/Acupressure.  Previously, she had studied Herbalism, Hopi Ear Candling, Flower Essences, Reflexology and Indian Head Massage courses.  In the future she would also like to study Shiatsu and Aromatherapy.  She had chosen to study with BSY because they are reasonably priced, and there is the option of paying monthly to spread the cost over a period of time, and also because there is a wide range available.  She said that she was very happy with the helpful tips from the tutors and found their comments very encouraging.  She sees herself in the future as a self-employed mobile therapist, offering a range of treatments.  To anybody considering studying with BSY she suggests that they should spend at least 30 minutes a day studying, and draw up a study timetable.

Some of the things that our students say about BSY beauty therapy courses and more

BSY students enrol with us for many different reasons.  Sometimes it is so that they can use their skills to earn a living.  Or maybe they have a thirst to increase their knowledge on a certain subject.  Perhaps it is for both reasons.

Lynn Crookes is a very good example of this.  She decided to study Acupressure/Acupuncture and Auriculotherapy both because she wanted a change of career and also because she had injured her back and thought that it would help her with pain management, give her a better understanding of what had happened and help her deal with it.  She said she has learnt so much about Traditional Chinese Medicine and how the body works, and hopes to set up her own practice to help others.

Lesley Rosslyn enrolled on the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy course as she has always been interested in CBT and has used it to a degree within her own therapy practice.  She wanted to be able to offer CBT to her clients as an accredited practitioner and felt that it would help her change direction in the way that she works with her clients and enable her to offer her clients a far better service,   She commented that she chose to study with BSY because she liked the idea of distance learning, as opposed to travelling long distances and sitting in uncomfortable lecture rooms.  She said that she was happy with the way the method of study, reading and answering questions enabled her to discover so much about the subject, as each question she answered encouraged her to research the answer through other sources, in addition to using the BSY material.

Good reviews and affordability were factors that helped Emma Payne choose the BSY Beauty Specialist and Beauty Therapy courses, combined with the fact that she would be able to study over a longer period.  She said, “I would like to improve on my knowledge of the Health and Beauty industry and treatments available, and the reasons why people have them.”  She was particularly happy with the feedback she received from her tutor while she was studying her Beauty specialist and Beauty Therapy courses, and said that she would advise anyone considering studying with BSY to keep to their lesson plan, and make use of other resources when answering the questions, plus use plenty of visual aids in their answers.
