Indian Head Massage

I really enjoyed the course, how we managed to fit it all in and seem to remember it, is down to the delivery.
A very well structured course in a pleasant location. I will definitely recommend it to other therapists and no doubt attend another one of your courses in the future.

Body Massage Therapy Practitioner Diploma Course - Spain Ibiza
My whole experience of working with Natural Therapy Studios from start to finish has been flawless. They are the most efficient company I have worked with yet. Their customer service and attention to detail is immaculate. And they do anything they can to accommodate their clients. In my case, I couldn't get the course dates to suit me in my area of preference. So Keith took time out from his holiday to teach me my Swedish massage course 1 to 1. He is an inspiring, enthusiastic and entertaining tutor, offering lots of insights to improve client experience, and little magic tips to maximise results. It's obvious he has a huge amount of knowledge and expertise and this comes across in his teaching. To say I have been delighted to Natural Therapy Studio is an understatement. I cannot recommend them enough and look forward to my next learning experience with them.

Anatomy & Physiology Level 3 Diploma
I had a bad experience trying A&P online with a well known on line course provider. The support was minimal to say the least.  Emails from the tutors were answered with one word answers and often days before I got a reply.  I gave up and lost the money!!
Anyway, I did my research and after talking to Keith from Natural Therapy Studio I felt confident to try again. I was offered regular support by phone during the day, a quick responses to emails out of hours and a quality course. ALL OF THIS WAS TRUE! The book that you read first is brilliantly laid out. Each unit is well explained and there are good diagrams, followed by a summary and then a multiple choice test. This solidifies your knowledge before you go onto the next unit. 
You do need to work at this course and it is not easy. It took me five months to do from start to finish and because of this you need a good company with someone at the end of the phone to support you personally. I highly recommend this company .

Thank you

Anatomy & Physiology Level 3 Diploma

Hi Keith & Tara

I have not long just finished & passed my A & P level 3 course, can’t believe it but I have!

Just can’t thank you enough from start to finish, I can’t fault it. The book & units I received were informative, interesting & just the right amount of knowledge without going to deep unlike some courses which I have done in the past. Keith was always available at the other end of the phone in which he was as usual helpful, informative & friendly nothing was too much trouble.

Just signed up to do a Swedish massage course now.

Thank you.  xx

Indian Head Massage
Hi Keith & Tara

I wanted to let you both know how much I enjoyed the Indian head massage course. Keith was very informative, helpful, friendly & nothing seemed too much trouble. I felt very relaxed & at home when doing the massage which makes it easier to learn. I couldn’t fault them they were so on the ball with everything & the manual that was sent was useful.

P.S. The DVD that comes with the course is a brilliant idea.

Thanks.  xx

Body Massage Therapy Practitioner Diploma Course for Beginners (includes Anatomy & Physiology Level 3 Diploma)

I had signed on with another provider, I thought the course was for massage L3 and that once I had passed I would be insurable. Also giving me practicals learning days (which this didn't)
At the beginning of signing on to this course I was eager to do some practicals, so looked on the internet to see if someone could give me the practicals sooner rather than later.

This is when I came across Natural therapy studio, so I emailed them, Keith called me back and we chatted.
After the phone call, I felt that I should book with the natural therapy studio. So I cancelled the other course as all it was going to give me was knowledge. They also didn't have a governing body which was not what I wanted or needed.

So I started with Natural therapy studio and it was the best move I made. Tara and Keith have been so helpful in helping me when I needed it. They are great people and I would highly recommend them to anyone,  I will be continuing to do more training with them.
Thank you to you both for all your help and support through the course.

Thank you Becky,

Hi, Tara!

Just want to say thank you very much for the wonderful massage course (Indian Head massage in Guiseley with Fran).
It was just amazing and the teacher is excellent!
It worth every penny!
I am looking forward now for the full body massage class with her after I do A level (I've paid for it already).
Thank you very much!
Kind regards,

Anatomy & Physiology Level 3 Diploma & Indian Head Massage
Hi Keith & Tara,

I have recently completed my Anatomy and Physiology level 3 with the Natural Therapy Studio.

After finding them from a Google search, I felt immediately confident about my choice from our first conversation.  Tara and Keith are knowledgeable and experienced, and helped me talk through my options and future plans in such a friendly and enthusiastic way.  During the course I felt supported and encouraged, and the exam at the end went well due to Keith being calm and helping me to take my time.  At the very beginning I did feel overwhelmed, as the book was very detailed – how on earth was I going to remember everything?  However, after reading the book you start the modules, which simply focus on what you need to know, and explained very well.  The course was well written, easy to grasp and as fascinating as the book – but more manageable!

I have also completed an Indian Head Massage course, and I am about to do Swedish massage, with manicure and pedicure courses in a few weeks.  I have quite a list of courses I want to do, and Natural Therapy Studio has everything I need.  My first course went really well, with an experienced and friendly tutor, so I am looking forward to doing more.  Quality courses at fantastic prices, my new career is well on its way – Thank you Tara, Keith & the team!

Anatomy & Physiology Level 3 Diploma Course - Home study
Hi Tara,

Just a quick e-mail to say how much I enjoyed this course. Keith was so helpful and always took the time to answer any of my questions, giving sound advice on my next steps into complimentary therapies! It is always rather nerve wracking when changing career path, especially when you are as old as I am! (54), but I am pleased to say I feel I made the right decision in choosing your company and would recommend you to anyone looking to build a portfolio. I am very much looking forwards to choosing some of the other courses you offer as I know I will get honest, professional guidance and feedback.I really appreciate that you separate out the A&P from the different disciplines. It means that now I have passed my A&P I won't have to do it again when I sign up for other courses, which will reduce the cost and the time and therefore not only is my chosen path achievable financially but the timescale is also reasonable.

Many thanks,

Hi Tara & Keith,

"I cannot recommend The Natural Therapy Studio enough. Tara and Keith
make it so easy to book courses that are local to me with instructors
that are professional, flexible and friendly. The booking process is
efficient and my emails always get a very quick response. The distance
learning A&P course was very well structured and allowed me to study
from home. I am slowly building on the qualifications I have and Tara &
Keith have always given me good advice on how to progress my portfolio.
A pleasure working with The Natural Therapy Studio and I plan to
continue studying and training with them."

Indian Head Massage

Hi Tara,

Following successfully completing my IHM with Vicki in Walsall west mids.

Vicki is so easy to work with and is friendly, yet professional and I love her teaching style and can't wait to have more training from her.

I would also like to thank you for the efficiency and ease in booking my IHM and the free DVD and resources were so helpful and gave me chance to study before the programme and have questions ready. I am so pleased with the professional and efficient service and high quality of training  offered by Natural therapies.

Oriential Face Massage

Hi Tara,

I just wanted to email you to say thank you for arranging the the above training course for me with Lorraine at Amberglow. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day.  Lorraine was welcoming and yet professional from the outset. The approach she used to teach us was clear and methodical and I have come away feeling secure in the techniques and ready to put this into practice in my business. This is down to Lorraine's empowering and positive training.
I look forward to attending more related courses in the future.

Anatomy & Physiology Level 3 Diploma - home study

From day one, Keith and Tara have been very informative, helpful and
professional. The course was in-depth, though explained in a manner easy to
understand, with the course book included and delivered to your door. Keith
is a great tutor, very supportive and encouraging throughout and during the
exam. Tara arranged my enrolment as soon as I enquired and helped me
whenever I had any questions. I am very happy I chose to study with the
Natural Therapy Studio and I look forward to continuing with the
Aromatherapy course.

Thanks to everyone involved.
Body Massage & Reflexology Refresher

Hi Keith and Tara,

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the body massage and reflexology refresher with Vicky yesterday! Vicky was so professional, very welcoming and warm, a really lovely person, as was her model who by the end of the day must have been all massaged out!

I'm hoping to do further courses with Vicky in the future and would recommend her to anyone. The process from booking right through to the course day has been great, thank you so much

Anatomy & Physiology Level 3 Diploma & Body massage

Hi Folks,

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know I think your tutor Helen Cosgrove in Kilmarnock is such a lovely  person, so kind ,hospitable and patient with myself and my daughter (my model). On the day of my massage practical. She made the whole experience so relaxing for us both and had patience with me when I was trying to get things just right. She is a credit to natural therapy studio and I look forward to meeting up with her again when I do my next course very soon, thanks. Also to Keith for being my tutor on A&P, and also having patience with me and my nerves on the day of the test. Thanks Tara for being there also to answer some of my questions. I am so glad I did my massage courses with you and will be definately doing more.
Thanks so much again, be in touch soon about my next course,

Hot Stone Body Massage
Tara/Keith have been really helpful with the attention to detail with this course, I was emailed a manual to read and sent out by post a dvd which explains the whole Hot Stone Massage course in full detail so if you forget the routine you can always watch the dvd before doing a client in the future.
I was sent questions to fill out which you need to send direct to the tutor these questions were in great depth so not to forget anything about the course. The manual is very detailed and up to a high standard. This way you will not carry out a treatment on any one without knowing what contra-indications are to the treatment and not to cause any harm to any one before carrying out this treatment.
Jenny Blake is a very friendly warm welcoming person to know she is very detailed on how moves should be used. If you are not up to par on certain areas she will make you go over it a few times so its in your head. Then at the end you will be examined on what you have learnt throughout the day and she will tell you weather you have failed or passed. I was pleased to say I passed first time so this demonstrates to me that her teaching skills are up to a high standard and she will not let you get the certificate if you do not know your stuff. So make sure before going to the class that you practice using the dvd provided so you will be one step ahead, because if you have not practiced as good as you should do you will not get the certificate.
I found the whole experience really enjoyable through out. I am now going to being further courses with this company.
I rate the standard of these professional courses ten out ten.
I have done other courses else where but this is definitely my top number one.
Happy courses to do so don't wait around get out there and do these courses you wont regret it.
Kind Regards
Oriential Hand Massage

Thank you so much for your delivery of the Oriential hand massage course. You tailored it totally to my pace and style of learning. You made it fun, informative and really easy to follow. Your hospitality at your home was lovely, you made me and my model feel very relaxed and at ease which in turn made learning a lot easier. Also the handbook and DVD you send out prior to the course were brilliant, prepared me for what to expect and will act as a good learning tool in the future too.

Thank you so much
Warm Bamboo massage
Good afternoon Tara,
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed my Warm Bamboo massage training day.
It was such revaluation working with your company, your staff were extremely helpful and polite on the phone.
Products were sent out when you said they would be and everything arrived well packaged and undamaged.
Everything ran like clock work, it was wonderful, very professional.
Sharon was very easy to get on with, her work area was set up and she explained and demonstrated with ease and confidence.
Im am really excited and looking forward to introducing this new treatment to my clients.
Kind regards
Anatomy & Physiology Level 3 Diploma Course - Home study

I have recently completed my level 3 diploma in Anatomy and Physiology with the
Natural Therapy Studio. Having been initially a little unsure as to what an 'online course' consisted of, I was reassured by a telephone call which provided all the information I needed without any pressure to enrol. I did subsequently decide to do the course and was very happy with the outcome! The course handbook
provided arrived promptly and proved to be a detailed and extremely useful point
of reference. The units of work were emailed through as requested and I found
the instructions easy to follow and the content interesting and of a manageable
Having completed the units of study I arranged the test which took place again
via a telephone call. Keith, my tutor, immediately put me at ease and explained
what was to happen before beginning the test. Appropriate feedback was given
once the test was completed.
I found the overall course experience both interesting and enjoyable and am
looking forward to beginning the next stage in my studies.

I’ve just passed my A&P level 3, yeeeeee
I found the Natural Therapy Studio on line and liked the broad range of subjects available in a local area.
The staff have been great ‘real’ people who ‘get’ adults training and learning and the insecurities and excitement that this involves. They have been practical, honest, lovely, helpful and quick to organise and respond.
I enjoyed my A&P once I realised I had to look beyond the book supplied and have appreciated the feedback from each unit. I appreciated the timescales available and did some units had a break then completed as my job allowed.
I am excited to now continue my studies with this neatly tucked under my belt and filed in the brain ready to applied as and when required

Thank you

Body Massage, Indian Head Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Oriental Hand Massage, Hopi Ear Candles & Oriental Face Massage

Hi Tara,

Thank you for organising the Hopi Ear Candling course with Lorraine Harwood.

As always, the course structure, the practical learning and the tutors style was very professional, clear and concise. I have done several courses with Lorraine now (Full body massage, Indian Head Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Oriental Hand Massage, Oriental Face Massage) and I have never been disappointed with the delivery and content.

Lorraine is very professional, extremely friendly and approachable always making my model and myself feel at home. This has allowed the training to feel more natural and give myself confidence as the student to walk away with my diploma and practise without doubt that I missed something or am doing things wrong.

Lorraine is honest with her teaching approach, ensuring that your technique is up to standard rather than allowing bad practises to occur (for me personally this was my incorrect posture whilst performing the treatments).
I would highly recommend Lorraine for anybody looking to do beauty or holistic diplomas in the Plymouth area.

Kind regards

Hi Natalie,

First thing first, I can't thank enough to Tara and Keith for their kind flexibility.

I was not able to start my course (The Anatomy & Physiology L3) immediately also failed to let them know, in fact totally forgotten - due to my personal reasons, but despite all this, they accepted me and extended my course time.

My tutor, Natalie was awesome, again I cannot thank her enough for her tremendous support.

Unit by unit, you will learn essential knowledge comprehensively.

Highly recommended !
Hope this helps
Again, thank you so much for being awesome, Natalie

All the best,

Indian Head Massage

I thoroughly enjoyed my Indian Head Message course and learnt a great deal from my tutor Natalie Fox, who I found very down to earth and easy to talk to. She was also very knowledgeable and extremely helpfully. Well worth the cost of the course and I wouldn't hesitate on going through the same company again if I wish to do another course in the future.

Indian Head Massage

I just wanted to let you know that I had an excellent time in my training with Elaine on Saturday. She is clearly extremely knowledgeable so it gives you huge confidence that you are learning from a professional. Equally important was that her enthusiasm and positive approach are infectious, while her sense of humour and warmth made sure it was a really fun afternoon, all of which contributes to a highly effective learning experience.
I can't praise her highly enough. Thank you for a worthwhile and really enjoyable course.

Hi Keith,

The Course
The modules were detailed yet clear about what was expected of me to work through and achieve, I found the course interesting and sometimes challenging but at least now I can get on with the fun, practical courses!
The Tutor
Course details, support material, tutor support and accessibility were all explained prior to the course starting in a clear, friendly way. Keith is extremely friendly and easy to talk to about any problems, he was very helpful throughout this entire course.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to my tutor Keith for all the support
