Learn the power of aromatherapy for clinical practice. Discover the therapeutic benefits of essential oils and their applications in massage, skin & hair care. Aromatherapists are used extensively in the spa industry, health retreats, community health care and increasingly in aged care facilities and hospital complementary service centres and clinics.
Direct your passion for good health and wellbeing into a valuable career. Massage therapy training can lead to rewarding work in health & wellbeing centres, beauty centres and aged care facilities.
Take your interest in massage further. Expand your knowledge of massage therapies by becoming qualified in Reflexology – a treatment applied to feet, hands or ears. Reflexology can promote relaxation, and general health and wellbeing. It can be a standalone practice or as an adjunct to massage therapy in many health centres, aged care facilities and hospital complementary service centres.
Take your massage skills further. Build on your existing Certificate IV in Massage Therapy Practice qualification, with NMIT’s nationally accredited Diploma of Remedial Massage and train in essential skills to work as a successful massage therapist. Apply these skills to work in sports massage or to join a multi-disciplinary practice alongside chiropractors, physiotherapists or osteopaths.
Specialise in massage therapies. Develop high level skills and expand your current massage therapy practice to treat your clients more effectively with the holistic science of myotherapy. Myotherapy treats the cause and symptoms of soft tissue dysfunction, allowing the body to repair itself gently.
