Our Swedish Massage I course is a comprehensive program that prepares graduates to be successful working as certified massage therapists in all types of settings. A variety of techniques and manoeuvres applied to the muscles (effleurages, petrissages, percussions, frictions, etc.) will be learnt, which promotes blood circulation, releases muscular tension and relaxes the body.

What are the key lessons from the Swedish Massage I course?

Our Swedish massage course enables students to become professional massage therapists with a Swedish massage certification. This comprehensive 400-hour training is divided into three components:

Theory courses taught at one of our campuses or online with live instructors. 

Practical courses that allow you to apply the techniques of Swedish massage.

In-school clinical stages under the supervision of one of our certified teachers.

Can I take your Swedish massage course online?

In order to meet the individual needs of our students, some of our massage therapy courses are taught via live virtual classes.

The theoretical part of the Swedish Massage I course can be done live in small groups with our teachers via the ZOOM platform. 

However, the practical part of this course must be done in class, under the supervision of our teachers at one of our three campuses in Montreal.

Can I start working in Quebec as soon as I finish the program?

Yes, once a student has passed all exams, we send them a diploma from our Academy of Massage Therapy. This diploma entitles the student to be recognized by the Federation of Quebec Massage Therapists (FQM). The new graduate will then be able to issue insurance receipts.
