- There are 14 modules and 18 physical training days in total for the Diploma of Holistic Massage
- Certificates are given for the 10 practical modules
- Certificates not given for Basic Counselling/First Aid, Business Practice and Case Studies*
- You may choose a date that is convenient for both trainee and trainer
- There are no restrictions in terms of timing deadline to complete the diploma
- You may choose to do the modalities as and when it suits your availabilities and budget
- A diploma will be presented upon completion of all modalities
- Basic Counselling/First Aid, Holistic Massage Business Practice and Case Studies are in PDFs via   correspondence, at your own pace and time. These can be attempted at any stage throughout   your lessons except for Case Studies - done at completion of all modules*
- It allows the student to study at their own pace, chosen dates as and when they are ready - there   are no penalties, or pressure to complete the diploma by a particular time frame but we do   encourage you not to allow too much time to pass in between modules, as well as completing the   entire diploma
- It combines physical hands-on training and practice as well as home-study correspondence-style
- Physical training sessions are conducted on a one-on-one basis in a private and nurturing space
- Life models (with real issues in a simulated environment) are organised for your practice which   makes the holistic healing modules tangible
- Modules are compounded as the lessons progress which makes for "refresher lessons" and   cements the information more solidly
