Fee: $120

- You must possess a BC Eldercare Massage Certificate.
- You must be 18 years old to attend this course.

Number of Participants:

The course is restricted to a small number of participants. This allows for personal time to be spent each day with the student on a one to one level. During this session, the instructor is able to monitor the standard of massage techniques, correct faults before they become habitual, answer questions, and discuss any problems as they arise. The philosophy of Hands-on-course is to be as fully available and approachable as possible throughout the certification course.


It is essential the class areas are to be kept as tidy and clean as possible. Fingernails must be kept short and clean.
Students are expected to wash their equipment regularly.

Dress Code:

Loose clothing is preferred, as much of training requires flexibility and ease of movement. Students are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing suitable for the training. Avoid tops with thin straps as they get tangled up in the massage. No jewelry/watches to be worn on arms and hands while performing massage. Hair should be pulled back from the face.

Personal hygiene – students are to be clean, well-groomed, and free of offensive odors.
Perfume – due to the close physical contact necessary during massage practice, it is advised that you omit the use of perfume and aromatic lotions when attending massage classes as a courtesy to those who have environmental sensitivities and allergies.
