Welcome to Holistic Therapies Training Academy home page. Karen Ashton is founder of Holistic Therapies Training Academy. Karen trained in beauty and holistic therapies in 2003 and became a full time therapist. In 2007 she trained as a level 4 further education teacher and Holistic Therapies Training was launched. The business has gone from strength to strength. The business started with just Karen working by herself. Now we are proudly working with a team of 15 tutors. Our tutors are spread over 10 locations.
