The Massage Academy
Traditional healing, massage and beauty treatments have been in Malaysian and Asian culture for centuries. These were mainly performed by spiritual and gifted healers up to this day. Over the last decade, there has been a surge of individuals practicing these age old arts as their main occupation.
Our courses are designed to be very efficient, cost effective and quick to learn. Our intensive and part time courses enable you to start massaging in the shortest time.
Massage and bodywork is a hands-on skill. Unless you have 6 months to 3 years to complete a theory filled, exam oriented course, our courses are formatted to get you, with or without experience, straight into working on a personís body from your very first lesson. This is the most practical way to learn massage and bodywork.
