Massage Course for Beginners

The Massage Course for Beginners teaches you how to give a relaxing full body massage. You will learn various classical hands-on massage techniques which help relax the recipient both physically as well as mentally.

The lessons also include a theoretical component in order to substantiate the massage and the techniques used. An important part of the course is the extra attention paid to specific key points and some handy massage tips and tricks.

Richard from The Hague about this course:
“The course was delivered excellently, with care, respect and confidence. The techniques are taught on how to give a full body massage. Following the course, supplementary materials are also made available to supplement and to endorse the techniques. In addition, there is also a web-shop for those wishing to pursue learning and practicing further. Highly recommended!”

The course material will be explained in sections, giving you ample time in-between to practice under the supervision of a trainer. This is the most effective way to learn how to massage.

By the end of the course, equipped with these techniques, knowledge, and practice, you will be able to give a varied, full body relaxation massage.

The timetable of the course

The approximate teaching time is about 10 hours for this course. How we split that up depends on several factors that we will agree upon. Often, if it is on weekdays in the evenings, then it is split into 3 evenings of approximately 3 and a half hours. If it is on a weekend, then it will be split into approximately 5 hours on the Saturday and 5 hours on the Sunday. If it is on weekdays during the day, then this can be the same as for the evenings or as for the weekends.

This is an intensive course where you will learn 50 techniques. The trainer will explain and show a set of techniques on one participant, then you will repeat them on that participant while the trainer guides you. Afterwards, you switch and repeat the same process on the other participant. So, each of you will be massaged twice, once by the trainer and once by your fellow participant, and each of you will practice the techniques once.

Massage lesson for two people

The lessons take place at the practice of the trainer. We only offer the Basic Massage Course in English upon request. Please fill in the form at the bottom of this page if you wish to do this course. When a date and time have been agreed with you, the trainer will send you the link to officially register via the “Bestellen” button (‘purchase’).

The course is offered to a pair of students; therefore, another participant is needed in addition to yourself. If you happen to be signing up with someone, then both of you can do the course together. However, you will each need to register separately. The trainer will send a link to each of you to do so via the “Bestellen” button (‘purchase’). If you do not have someone else with you, the OMB will connect you with another interested student. Registration (which includes payment) can only take place when the time and date have been agreed between you and the trainer!
