    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 results-driven, 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.

    Our unique and distinctive techniques

    Designed by DMA, our thorough massage system techniques have been developed over the past 30 years by our founding trainers that will get you proven results. You’ll leave our hands on weekend course confidently able to perform a full body relaxation massage that friends, family and clients will love. Our techniques allow you to use different levels of pressure based off what your client wants giving your massages the WOW factor.

    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

    Comprehensive video tutorials that prepare you to treat clients in no time

    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, core skills, comprehensive online video tutorials and Zoom face-to-face coaching.

    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 22 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 first 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.

    Don't just take our word for it.
