I really liked this school, but I can also see the improvements that it can make to be even better. I was a international student and spent 3 months training here.

Visited here in October for a tailored hot stone massage course. Katut was a brilliant trainer, warm patient and very clear, & training manuals & facilities were all excellent. I have taken these skills back to my remedial massage clinic in Australia and am getting great feedback from clients and colleagues alike. Will definitely return in the future!
