Edinburgh School of Massage

Dunfermline Press:

Massage is a wonderful way to restore and maintain health, whether you are into sport or not. The ‘feel good’ factor of massage is surprisingly effective in rejuvenating an individual, relieving aches and pains, and melting away the stress and strains of modern-day life.

When we are massaged:

  • the production of natural painkillers increases
  • our immune system is boosted
  • our blood pressure and respiratory rate lower, improving the function of heart and lungs
  • excess fluid and metabolic wastes are directed into the circulation for removal
  • muscles are warmed up and stretched, which helps to realign the body
  • relaxing muscles can restore normal pain-free movement to joints
  • the soothing effect of touch sedates our body and calms our nervous system, resulting in us feeling calmer, less stressed and anxious, which usually enables us to sleep better.

Professional training runs one weekend per month for 8 months and enables you to set up in business afterwards.  Offering a flexible career within the complementary therapies field, whether working on your own, or as part of a team in a clinic/spa, with sports teams, in hospitals/hospices with cancer patients, and many, many more areas of life.

Scottish Massage Schools is an SQA Accredited school and offers a full progression of courses from gentle Swedish Massage, Remedial & Sports Massage, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, all the way through to Manipulative Therapy.
