For the price, you just cant go wrong. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the massage was given the students are still learning. Had a private room that was a lot cleaner than some of the full price places around, and the student found all the tight spots in my shoulders. Must go back soon!

I had a visit to the office the other day as I was searching for massage courses to take. I talked to Tammy. She was superb helpful. She answered all the questions I had. I was also very impressed with the facility and how professional the center was. At the end, I decided not to pursue a massage diploma because of personal reasons. But if I did, I would have picked Q to study with.

Absolutely amazing! I've been here initially as a client, student and I could not talk more highly of the school. As a Health and Fitness Professional, I throughly researched schools surrounding the Gold Coast. Everything from their current teachers, to their student reviews and curriculum. Hands down, Q Academy was the most well structured and established school. I'd be happy to share my experiences with anyone thinking of studying here as it has changed my career trajectory and added so much depth to my practise as a therapist and coach Could thank you all more!!!

Was looking forward to visiting the college with all the good reviews. Unfortunately my appointment was cancelled while I was on my way to the clinic - disappointed, but the owner responded positively and I must remember that this is a student clinic with its own operating issues. Four stars for the owners response.

I have been going there for nearly 2 years and it is the best massage school/training on the Gold Coast. I have not had one bad experience. The students find the areas that are causing discomfort and sort it out so that when I leave I feel relaxed. And most of them will give you suggestions of what to do in the meantime. Q massage is a great place for dollar value and professionalism.
