All hands-on training


Our unique, 99% hands-on Certificate in Whole Body Massage Course will equip you with the ability and confidence to put your new therapy skills into immediate practice. Our massage system we teach will give you the WOW factor with your massages and set you apart from all other massage therapists.

This course is like no other weekend, two day whole body massage course. You will begin massaging within 15 minutes of the course starting. We don’t make you listen to our instructors talk for hours before you begin.We want you learning how to massage. We discuss important topics such as anatomy, scope of practice, contraindications, ethics and laws as we go.

Our instructors have a combined 125 years experience. Their qualifications range from the HLT50302 Diploma of Remedial Massage, Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy and Chiropractor B.Sc Grad D.C
Importantly, all our instructors hold the TAE40110 teaching qualification.

This course teaches you a complete physical massage system with each part having a series of sequences, which enables you to relax and loosen contracted, shortened muscles helping posture. We teach you how to apply different levels of pressure throughout your massage.

There is no point simply learning "strokes" like other courses teach you. You need to know how to put them together to treat the client thoroughly. Our massage system we teach will give you the WOW factor with your massages and set you apart from all other massage therapists.

As part of the learning process you will also be massaged. Over the years we have found that being massaged helps with learning our massage sequences. We teach you how to drape your client correctly to ensure everyone feels comfortable being massaged.

The Whole Body Massage Course gives you a thorough base massage technique that you can add to if you choose to do further study.

Note: Other weekend courses teach you how to massage only half of the body, going over a few strokes, and are taught only in part or are theory-based. Our course will teach you a complete and thorough hands on practical massage system, with every stroke designed to both stretch and relax tight muscles. We teach you how to apply different levels of pressure throughout your massage.

Over one action-packed weekend, you will discover all the therapy skills you need to give a quality, thorough relaxation massage.

We will teach you a complete practical system through a series of sequences for each body part. These combine together to allow you to completely soothe, relax and unwind the client’s body.

Our system has proven to be the best practical, hands-on teaching method of the past 15 years.

Note: We started the DMA Whole Body Massage Course Certificate in 1997. Since then other schools have copied this name whilst delivering completely different course.

We lay out the best foundations if you want to go on and complete a Certificate IV in Massage Therapy (HLT42015) or a Diploma in Remedial Massage (HLT52015). We see continued learning as a very important part of the massage.The more you learn, the better the therapist you will become and the more clients you will have.

During this two day course, you will also practice appropriate draping techniques and how to position clients comfortably on the table.

Our course involves practising massage sequences on other students, which allows you to gain further appreciation of the therapeutic effects through both giving and receiving.

You will also learn simple marketing techniques to rapidly build a client base for your practice or clinic, thereby accelerating your income.

YES. The DMA program is the quickest, most cost effective pathway of practising professionally in Australia.

Note: Yes, there are cheaper weekend courses available. They are cheaper because they will not teach you a thorough massage system. They will only focus solely on strokes, will cover only half the body and will make you sit through hours of talking about what you can become rather than actually providing hands-on practice.
