Massage Mastery Programme

The Complete Guide to doing an Exceptional Massage

Fine-tune your massage, get more clients, more referrals and become the “go-to” therapist you deserve to be, with this 6 module, online programme


Why be a GOOD therapist, when you could be EXCEPTIONAL?

You want to make your massage exceptional. You want to stand out from the crowd. You want to get clients easily and you want those clients to stay with you and refer you to all their friends!

But where do you start? You want to focus on your massage and your clients’ experience. You don’t necessarily want to do a  whole other qualification.

You know that one-day CPD courses only teach new techniques and you want to learn something more comprehensive and thorough. You want insight, strategy and new ideas to help you create an amazing treatment for your client, using the tools and techniques you already have.

You don’t want to do a sports massage course, but you would like to know how to make your massage more remedial.

Oh – and how about making it more holistic – so it treats the whole person – while you’re at it?!


Welcome to the Massage Mastery Programme.


In this on-line programme you will learn a step-by-step system for creating a massage experience that everyone (including you!) will love.

  • You will take an in-depth look at EVERY aspect of your massage treatment, taking the quality of your treatment to a whole new level.
  • You will learn the tips, hints and secrets your massage school didn’t teach you – that will set your massage far, far above the rest
  • You will understand how to give a treatment that will bring you a stream of clients, referrals and create a thriving business for you.

By the end of the programme, you will be able to give an exceptional treatment from beginning to end; a beautiful, remedial massage that has both soul and substance.

In the Massage Mastery Programme, you will take a deep-dive into the art of massage and fine-tune your skills as a therapist.

 you’ll learn to:

  • Attract your ideal clients – the ones that are a joy to work with and who love the work that you do.
  • Take the guess work out of your treatment, by understanding what your client really needs.
  • Fine-tune your touch – work more remedially, and feel confident that your treatments deliver results
  • Know where to treat and when, to get the best possible outcome for your client
  • Encourage your client to re-book. No more feeling pushy-salesy with the perfect after-massage conversation to get repeat business

AND you will learn the EXACT consultation and re-booking techniques, that will build your business, as well as how to tailor the perfect massage to your client group.


This Programme is for you if:

You are level 3 trained and you are starting to realise there is so much about being a massage therapist that your massage qualification alone couldn’t teach you.

You feel confident in your basic skills, but:

You’re feeling ready to move on with your massage – You really don’t want to do the same run-of-the-mill treatments as everybody else, and you’re ready to start going off-piste and to find your own style.

You’d like to learn more about how to work both remedially AND holistically to ensure your clients gets the best of both worlds within their treatments.

You feel that adding extra techniques to your repertoire isn’t the answer. You would like to learn how to create a beautiful and effective massage experience from beginning to end of the treatment.

You’d like to know what type of touch to use, when and why


My name is Nikki, I am the owner of Orchid Massage Academy.

I have been running a successful massage practice for the last 20 years and I’ve been teaching  Level 3 Diploma massage courses for over 15 years.

While I was teaching I found it so frustrating that I had to stick to the curriculum. I wanted to teach everything I knew about massage – but there just wasn’t time. I saw therapists struggling with their massage, or with retaining clients and I used to wish there was a way I could help them.

I realised that there is so much that the level 3 qualification doesn’t really touch on, or doesn’t go in enough depth into. Most courses teach new TECHNIQUES – and, although helpful, a host of new techniques don’t make an amazing therapist, Or make clients re-book.

An exceptional massage requires more subtle knowledge: You need to know HOW to treat the client.

You need to use

  • the right touch,
  • at the right time,
  • with the right pressure,
  • in the right places…

… while making the whole experience delightful for your client. And of course, every client is different with different needs – so how do you do this?!

Even the world’s best body massage course can’t teach you EVERYTHING you need to know about giving an amazing massage. Mostly you are taught the basics and then you are expected to learn the rest as you go along. You can go on to do one-day CPD courses, and learn new techniques, or you can do a level 4, 5 or Sports massage, or a business and marketing course, but there doesn’t seem to be anything in between. So that’s why I wrote this programme

An exceptional massage means putting thought, care, understanding and insight into EVERY part of the treatment.

An exceptional therapist is one who can do a massage that is both laser focused and holistic, treating the whole person as you are also treating the parts.

And you can’t learn how to do that through yet another off-the-shelf technique.


I designed this programme to help you:

Feel completely confident in your massage techniques,

Fine-tune your skills and your treatments so that you feel able to raise your prices.

And…to give you advice, support, motivation, guidance and inspiration to help you become the amazing massage therapist you know you can be.

I have poured all my experience, education and expertise into this course to help you become the ultimate massage therapist.

Here’s what other therapists have said about the Massage Mastery Programme:






The Programme is NOT for you if:


You are happy doing the massage you learned at college and going on a few courses to gain new techniques. You have to want to be EXCEPTIONAL. This is not a list of new techniques. This is whole new way of thinking about your treatments.

If you believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to massage. Or if you treat the body and not the person,  this isn’t for you either.


If you want more clients and a thriving massage practice, it means putting QUALITY first.

A QUALITY massage solves your client’s problems and makes them feel amazing. Put thought, care, understanding and insight into EVERY part of the treatment and your clients will return again and again.


Get ready to take your massage to the next level!
