I've just completed an accredited Hot Stone Massage course with Sam and can’t recommend her enough. She has a wealth of knowledge and a brilliant teaching style. I've come away feeling confident with the routine and very excited to introduce the new massage style to my clients. I've already signed up to do the Indian Head Massage course too! Thank you, Sam! 

Kati Bishop

Sam has been a self-employed tutor for me for five years. She has consistently trained in CPD courses to offer a wide range of diplomas. She is very self-motivated and passionate.
Her teaching style gets the best out of people, especially those lacking in confidence where she is very accommodating to individual needs and supports the students 100%.

Karen Ashton

I felt Sam was the right person to teach me a massage, as she has a relaxed and professional approach. When I had questions or didn’t understand an area within the course or demonstration, Sam has the ability and deep knowledge to be able to reword and show in another way that could be understood. Sam’s approach feels as if she is listening to you and instills confidence. I would highly recommend Sam as a tutor and the courses that she offers.

Luciana Corp

If you want to learn massage, I cannot recommend Sam enough. I have been lucky enough to have had Sam as my tutor on several courses and always come away learning much more than the course promised. She is passionate and relaxed and that comes across in her teaching. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Denise Paynter

The sports therapy course is so concise that it’s foolproof and although I assumed everyone was taught in the same way, you find yourself very quickly working towards your client’s needs rather than producing a standardized routine for the millionth time. Work doesn't get boring. Also, you still find yourself supported after training and wanting to do more courses.

Sophie Bertoli

I have trained with Sam on several courses. Sam has a great relaxed and enjoyable way of teaching. Her knowledge of muscles and the body is vast. It is obvious that Sam has invested a lot of time into studying and she teaches to your individual needs.
