I completed my Reflexology diploma here and am currently doing my Indian Head Massage qualification. I thoroughly recommend the school. The teaching is done in an informal style with small numbers of students, and lots of support is offered. Nikki has a wealth of experience and knowledge so I have learnt routines that clients enjoy. I also feel that Nikki creates therapists that will stand out in the industry due to the client care tips that she provides.
Thoroughly enjoyed the full body massage course at Orchid Academy. Janine was very personable, inspiring and a knowledgeable tutor. She made learning the techniques very easy, was thorough in her teaching, but also took the time to work with us individually to make sure we understood what we were doing.I highly recommend this Academy and would definitely go with them again!
I have been on 2 courses at Orchid Massage Academy, pregnancy massage and Hot stones massage. Both days were excellent, the tutors Nicky and Janine were so informative and experienced and made the courses so enjoyable. I am also booked on the Hopi ear candling course in Feb, would highly recommend doing a course here. Thank you to Nicky and Janine.
Completed pregnancy massage course on Sunday. Nicky was a brilliant tutor. Really lovely lady. Course delivered in a nice relaxing manner. Reflexology next. Many thanks,
