About the Tutor

Ros Cope

Ros has over 30 years’ experience of training and development and has been teaching on MTI courses since 2006. Her own massage training includes a degree level qualification in Sports and Remedial Massage, and qualifications in Myofascial Therapy and Manual Lymphatic Drainage.

She has a private massage practice as well as working within various community projects to help people better manage their stress.

Holistic Massage Diploma

The course aims are for students to gain the skills, confidence, and knowledge needed to set up in massage practice. The emphasis is on helping each student to identify, develop and appreciate their own style of practise within a secure foundation. Support, encouragement, and fun are a big part of the learning experience.

The course is part-time, running over 10 months on 10 weekends. Learning is experiential, practical and theoretical and the teachers use a variety of different methods to make the learning fun and memorable. There are regular homework assignments between classes, practice massage hours to complete, as well as a longer written assignment during the course.
