Accredited Development Courses
At The Holistic Academy we offer a range of accredited development courses including Deep Tissue Massage, Fertility Reflexology, Stone Therapy Massage and Warm Bamboo Massage to name but a few.
Our enthusiastic and motivational teaching style has given our students the confidence to deliver professional treatments to their clients and many have gone onto learn further advanced skills and treatments. We pride ourselves on the quality of our teaching, and ensure all our students learn the theory as well as effective practical techniques. This helps each individual to develop an understanding of holistic practice and the skills it will take to become a successful therapist and build a thriving business.
Students can enhance their offered treatments with one of our many Postgraduate courses available through The Holistic Academy.
What is Continued Professional Development (CPD)?
The Federation of Holistic Therapists defines Continued Professional Development as a range of activities through which professional therapists maintain and develop their skills to ensure that they retain their capacity to practice safely, effectively and legally, within their scope of practice.
In the simplest terms, CPD is any activity that refreshes or develops your therapy skills and knowledge.
Why is CPD effective?
CPD keeps you in touch with current practice – knowledge grows over time and there may be better ways of doing things since you qualified, or more information about why certain practices are more effective. Your first qualification is only the start of the journey; you will be learning more from each client. CPD can provide a way for you to reflect on that practice in a structured way.
