About the Tutors
Course Director and Principal Tutor
Vicky's approach to teaching massage reflects her love of nature. She loves to see students bloom from the seed of inspiration that they bring at the start of the course.
She expects a lot of herself as a massage teacher and delivers a high standard of training and makes no excuses for expecting a lot of her students.
Vicky has been a massage tutor for 25 years.
Eva Weltermann Course Tutor
Eva has been fascinated with massage from an early age when massage was very much part of her childhood in Germany. She finds the combination of working and teaching as a massage therapist enormously gratifying.
Rebecca Shine Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology Tutor
Rebecca started her teaching career in 2004 with a passion to help people learn and to enjoy learning. Her approach to teaching is to be flexible, to adapt to her learners and to play in sessions both physically and with ideas. By also having a relaxed, respectful and supportive approach, she finds she can engage the learners and help them achieve their potential.
Craig Foden Course Tutor
Craig became directly aware of massage's healing potential after receiving an inspiring massage for a painful lower back. His continuing martial arts practise nurtured his growing interest in body use and he qualified in professional holistic massage with SCMT. Craig teaches on the SCMT Sports & Remedial Massage course.
Hayley Blogg Assistant Tutor
For Hayley, massage is not simply a technique to learn for the benefit of others, it is a doorway through which a whole new world appeared. She has entered this new world and met fabulous people along the way, being able to help clients and now she has the opportunity to help students learn about this amazing gift that we all have: loving touch.
Holistic Massage Diploma
This offers the student a high standard of professional training. During the course there is a mixture of practical and academic work. The student interested in massage will find the course stimulating, satisfying and challenging as we journey through the myriad aspects of this exciting way of working with people.
There will be a process of self, peer and facilitator assessment throughout the course, being particularly relevant in the last term when we focus on the student as a practitioner. Towards the end of the course, preparation will take place to take the practical and written exams. It is therefore essential that the student has an adequate understanding of both written and spoken English, however, people with English as their second language are encouraged to apply.
