Baby Massage Instructor Training
What doll do i need to buy for Baby Massage training?
Any girls baby doll will do just fine. The soft bodied ones are the better
ones to go for (they are very similar to the more expensive dolls made specifically for baby massage, at a higher cost) as they are more supple for demonstrating the stretching
moves. Again, any size will do fine as babies come in all shapes and sizes,
however, a larger doll will be better to demonstrate on. (50cm approx
is a good size.)
Argos sell a range of dolls, as well as the larger supermarket stores.
The first 50% of course fee is due at time of booking to confirm your place & to receive your training material. The final 50% is due no later than 14 days prior to the start date of the practical training.

Intensive training day
Why can a course be taught in such a small space of time?
All our courses are run as small group or on a one to one basis. For the student this allows individual attention with the tutor. The student is required to study at home, as well as case studies, enabling the tutors to concentrate the maximum amount of time on the practical training. Some training providers run classes with up to 20 students at one time. They learn the same technique but as the classes are larger it takes longer to teach, thus making it more expensive and more training days. Some also include theory and practical into the day, reducing the time spent on practical. Here at Holistic Therapies Training all your course material is emailed to you prior to the day so you can study the theory behind the subject,
giving you more understanding, before you come for the training.
