Our commitment to quality sets us apart
We’re different to the other massage schools, and it shows in the quality of our graduates:
Learn a comprehensive massage system (not just strokes)
We don’t teach a set of technically disjointed massage strokes – we give you a complete and thorough massage system to effectively massage the entire body to relax and lengthen the muscles that give your massages the WOW factor and set you apart from all other massage therapists.
Highly effective training helps you memorise our system
Rather than just demonstrating each stroke then moving on we’ll present and explain each stroke, you practise it, then we revise and show you how to organically add the stroke to your repertoire. And we’ll keep practicing until you and your classmates are ready to move on.
Unique and distinctive techniques
Our techniques have been developed over the past 30 years by our founding trainers, and you’ll leave our hands on weekend course confidently able to perform a full body relaxation massage that friends, family and clients will love.
What you learn
- A complete, thorough whole-body massage system
- Techniques to lengthen and relax your clients’ muscles
- How to use your body (and body weight) to safely massage and avoid injuries
- How to interact with clients
- Correct positioning or “draping”
Start working sooner
If you’re looking to start your career, or add a skill to your resume, then our DMA 2 day Certificate in Whole Body Massage will give you everything you need. This massage course is 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.

When you’re ready to advance your skills we offer our Deep Tissue Massage for Common Injuries Courses that’ll set you up for an extraordinary career, either through our own Pathway to Massage Excellence, or as the first practical module of the HLT42015 Certificate IV in Massage Therapy.
No other course can prepare you to treat clients in two days
At Discover Massage Australia, we want to help you learn to become the best massage therapist possible, which is why we focus on quality trainers, hands-on practical learning, and core skills.
We’ll teach you the skills and techniques you need to successfully treat clients, and we’ll show you the underlying principles that form the basis of what we do.
We all know the importance of having a system to follow. Without a system it’s very hard to know right from wrong, or how things negatively or positively affect your desired massage result.
Leading the way for over 20 years
As one of the most experienced colleges, we’ve training thousands of people since 1997 – now we’re the largest hands-on college in the country.
We want to help you build your career, whether you become a dedicated massage therapist or use your skills to complement your other services. Our course is also perfect for people trying massage for the fist time or those simply wanting to broaden their skill set. So, we spend more time teaching and less time talking, and we back up the techniques with solid business and client liaison advice that can benefit everyone, no matter what field you work in.
Our comprehensive hands-on course is a great stepping stone to the HLT42015 Certificate IV in Massage Therapy Practice and successful completion of our weekend course fulfils your requirements for the first practical module of the Certificate IV in Massage Therapy qualification.
