Learn from the best and kick-start your career
If you’re serious about building a career in massage, you need quality teaching and support from people who know the industry. Discover Massage Australia is oldest and most experienced ‘hands on’ training school in Australia. We’ve been in the business since 1997, and over that time we’ve helped thousands of graduates build their own successful careers in massage – now we’d love to help you do the same.
Our trainers are experienced professionals and they’ll show you our unique massage systems in a way that you can remember and confidently use on your own clients. With courses for all levels held regularly across Australia, it’s easy to start your own career in massage.
We’re committed to creating fantastic massage therapists
We’re not like a lot of the other massage schools out there – that’s why our courses look a little different.
Our courses are industry recognised and can help you towards your nationally accredited Certificate IV and the Diploma of Remedial Massage qualifications, but we also offer a pathway to a fulfilling massage career that means you can earn an income as you upskill your qualifications.
In just one weekend we’ll show you a whole-body massage system that allows you to obtain professional insurance and begin working professionally right away.
We’re only able to do this because we deliver thorough, hands-on training from the start
You’ll never feel bored in our classroom – within a few minutes of arriving you’ll be working hands-on and practicing skills until you feel confident. Each step is explained and demonstrated, then you get a chance to have a go with the trainers’ support. And we’ll never make you move on before you’re ready.
We’ll also show you how to incorporate each skill into your sequence as we go, so whether you’re learning the very first few strokes, or complex deep tissue therapy, you’ll understand when and where to use what we’ve taught you, which means you can offer a better service to your clients.
You’ll learn our exclusive Cross Fibre Release Technique from the experts
Over the years our specialist trainers have developed a massage system which works on releasing tendons, ligaments, muscle fibres and fascia, rather than just focusing on the muscle groups.
Known as Contractual Tendon Release (CTR)™ and Contractual Ligament Release (CLR)™, these unique sequences allow you to treat clients safely and with confidence to improve their health and wellbeing. This holistic approach doesn’t rely on a detailed diagnosis of the problem as we’ll teach you to treat the whole body, releasing muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments
We’re proud to work with the best in the industry
All our staff and trainers have years (sometimes decades) of practical experience as massage therapists. We work with leading therapists, fitness specialists, chiropractors and osteopaths, to bring you courses that improve your clients’ overall wellbeing.
And every one of our instructors is passionate about teaching you – they make learning easy and fun, with all the support and advice you need to feel confident.
Why study with us?
We believe the best massage therapists learn hands-on, not through hours of lectures. That’s why we focus on teaching you the practical skills you need, backed up with knowledge so you can competently treat your clients.
Our massage courses are fully recognised with both the peak industry association which is Massage Association of Australia (MAA) established in 1980 and the peak industry body, International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT) established in 2002. On completion of the Whole Body Massage course you will be able to join the MAA or IICT and purchase professional Indemnity Insurance. Membership facilitates purchase of Professional Indemnity insurance allowing you to practice professionally.
