This course has been designed to give students the opportunity to study online the Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology component of the ITEC Body Massage course. 

Please read the Course Introduction tab for information on the structure of this Mixed Mode Online Course.


This massage diploma course will get you started in your massage career.  This will be your professional entry level to continue studying more complimentary massage based therapies.

You will study Anatomy and Physiology to a level 3 qualification as well as massage. Human Anatomy and Physiology is the study of human beings - the structure of our bodies and how they work.  This study can often be used to provide exemption from the Anatomy and Physiology elements of future courses.

Level 3 massage will qualify you to professionally give Holisitc / Swedish style massage.  Including the use of oils and client care.  Upon completion you will be able to call yourself A Holisitc Massage Therapist and gain practitioners insurance, taking advantage of many job opportunits or moving on to our many other CPD and VTCT (ITEC) certified courses.

If you have decided to take the mixed mode online course option, the structure will be as follows:

Part 1) Online lectures via Zoom will include the Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology element.

Part 2) Practical lectures at the school will include the demonstration and application of different massage techniques, incorporated into a 45 minute treatment.

The practical sessions will be scheduled for each group once C-19 Lockdown Restrictions have been lifted and it is safe to open again. 

*Note* You can opt to just take the Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology as a stand alone qualification. You would need to complete the same dates and online lectures, work through the workbooks & quizzes provided - once you feel ready, then you are able to take your final exam online via the ITEC student portal.

More detailed information can be found on the Course Content tab.
