About the Level 4 Massage Certificate

The history of massage dates back 3, 000 years ago to the ancient cultures of China and Egypt. The healing benefits of massage have been known to alleviate or help with a great range of illness – neurological affections, pain management, and psychological symptoms of anxiety and depression. For musculoskeletal issues, sports massage and other deep tissue have a real benefit of myofascial release, reducing pain and improving movement. This massage course has a packed syllabus, with comprehensive modules on body systems such as muscular, nervous, endocrine, digestive, respiratory and others, their functions, possible afflictions and how massage can assist with certain conditions.

The suggested time for this course is 100 hours, but you can finish the course work in more or less time. There are no time constrictions with learndirect. You simply need to enjoy the subject and have the motivation to complete it.

Who should study this course?

This course is aimed at all those interested in alternative therapy who have a passion for helping others. Having a massage certification would allow you to pursue a career as a massage therapist, but it could propel you towards a business venture, if you prefer working for yourself.

As with any of our courses, you do not need any prior qualifications or experience before enrolling on this massage course. All you need in an interest in massage therapy and the motivation to complete the course in a time that suits your needs.

What happens after the course?

At the end of this online course you will have all the necessary skills to become a massage therapist. However, if you choose to specialise in a particular massage technique, you can study further to delve in any other holistic practice that interest you or offer you a competitive edge on the job market.

There is a great need for massage specialists, be it in beauty clinics, holistic clinics or spa retreats. This qualification could even allow you to pursue a career on cruise ships. This massage qualification will also allow you the freedom to work for yourself. All the above settings are feasible for self-employment, but you could see clients at home, visit them at their home or get contracts with workplaces for staff massages. In conclusion some of the job opportunities you could find at the end of this qualification:

  • Massage therapist
  • Beauty therapist
  • Kinesiology practitioner
