Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LEARNING - Janita Singh

THE TAFE Di­ploma of Re­me­dial Mas­sage is great for those who want to be­come a pro­fes­sional mas­sage ther­a­pist or prac­ti­tioner.

Stu­dents grad­u­ate with mas­sage skills to cater for ev­ery­one in­clud­ing preg­nant women, the el­derly and even chil­dren. Sports mas­sage tech­niques are also part of this course.

Stu­dents will ac­quire knowl­edge in the chem­i­cal, bi­o­log­i­cal and bio­phys­i­cal as­pects of mas­sage and in the phi­los­o­phy, prin­ci­ples and prac­tice of com­ple­men­tary health care to en­able them to work safely and eth­i­cally with clients.

Apart from anatomy and phys­i­ol­ogy, stu­dents learn about nu­tri­tion and busi­ness mar­ket­ing/man­age­ment.

The course is hands-on and taught at TAFE’s own pro­fes­sion­ally-set mas­sage clinic.

Any­one with a Year 12 Cer­tifi­cate can start at en­try level or a Cer­tifi­cate 4 in Mas­sage Ther­apy for ad­vanced en­try. For more de­tails: syd­neytafe.edu.au
