At NLSSM we are passionate about helping our students to be their very best.
Time and again, research has shown that people remember things best when they learn by doing. Not just once or twice, but repeatedly and regularly.
Intensive courses, by their nature, do not create the best environment for learning. They may seem convenient but that convenience comes at a high price - your standard of education.
We take our lessons from athletes who consistently train using repetition over a longer period of time, this allows for the muscles to adapt in the same way that our practical massage skills need to develop. To run a marathon requires more than 3 weeks training to be top in the field.
We also choose to offer single days rather than 2 day weekend courses to our students. Our experience has shown us that students are able to retain a greater amount of information as well as it better develops their hands on skills through regular contact. This atmosphere of encouragement helps our students to keep on an even keel and remain highly motivated.
BTEC Level 5 is a professional massage qualification, so it's only fitting that we teach them professionally, and that's why we will never offer our soft tissue massage courses as an intensive option.
