Our massage school in Brisbane has spacious classrooms, a large number of permanent student clinic bays, is fitted with two student kitchens, and a student hub area where you can study and relax during breaks. All rooms are air-conditioned, to ensure that you’re comfortable while you’re learning.

For your convenience, there is on and off street parking available. Alternatively, if you wish to use public transport, we are only a short 10-15 minute walk from Fortitude Valley Station.

We have an extensive number of massage courses available at our Brisbane Campus, such as the HLT42015 Certificate IV in Massage Therapy, 3 versions of the HLT52015 Diploma of Remedial Massage, 22316VIC Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy, and lots of short courses to choose from! 

We believe that learning should be a fun and enjoyable experience. We have smaller class numbers and multiple start dates per year, for added convenience. Our educators or ‘course coaches’ are highly trained and experienced in the industry, and will make sure that your time in the classroom is productive, supportive and entertaining.
