Home study courses: testimonials 

Hi Kaye,
Just wanted to say thank you for making such an enjoyable and easy to follow homestudy course available.I have had an interest and passion for foot massage for as long as I can remember.I wanted to do a foot reflexology course but due to work and family committment was not able to attend classes. I decided to look into it again and came across your courses.So thank you once again. Marianne

Kaye has a passion and extensive knowledge for massage and healing and I would describe her studio as a sanctuary for developing not only your massage techniques but also a space for developing self-love and self-confidence
I highly recommend her courses for anyone interested in becoming a registered massage or healing therapist


Hi Kaye.

I’d like to pay you a complement regarding the online reflexology course content, I am undertaking.
Even though, l didn’t complete my reflexology diploma, due to illness some time ago, I still benefited from a year of study and clinical practice.
The course you offer, is very precise and covers very much so, the important fundamentals and principles of reflexology. You most certainly have delivered a well rounded very informative course.
I’m very happy with both, reflexology and Indian head massage content study material I am undertaking.
Cheers and regards. Thank you.
Trish Diehl.

The first 2 weeks provide students with the practical skills to perform the traditional Level I-II Northern style sequence in 4 positions: front, side, back and sitting; with the addition of a very specific understanding on how to use the body mechanics, the weight transfer, the oscillation and the direction of pressure.
This includes:

•         Energy line work on the arms, legs and back from all the above positions;
•         Pressure points work on feet, hips, lower back, shoulders and neck;
•         Sequences of stretches to unblock energy throughout the whole body.
The 3rd week consists of 5 days of supervised practice to consolidate the information learnt in the previous two weeks so to make it easier to focus on your own body mechanics and postural alignment.
Students will:
•         deepen their knowledge of the meridians of both arms and legs;
•         practice both level I and II again;
•         practice stretches they are not yet comfortable with on the teacher;
•         prepare a sequence that they will perform on external people on the last day.

In our Pelvis and Lower Extremity Myoskeletal Weekend Seminar you will learn practical and effective approaches for finding and treating chronic Pelvic, Lumbar and Lower Extremity pain problems. Additionally, you’ll learn biomechanical techniques to address osseous structures as you would other tissues, using the bones as levers to mobilise soft tissues.

Our goal is to enhance your skills, improve your results, and build your practice to a level of excellence that goes beyond the standard expectation of what can be achieved through traditional bodywork training. Be prepared for outstanding results, even with long standing chronic conditions!

Rocktape Kinesiology Training Courses


Rocktape’s taping protocol is quickly becoming the standard for kinesiology taping in the medical industry.  The Rocktape courses are Australia’s most popular kinesiology tape courses.  In 2014 we conducted in excess of 60 full and half day courses, attended by more than 1,500 people.  Why the interest?

Unlike other methods, Rocktape’s taping protocol is based on an ‘open-source’ philosophy; we don’t believe there’s only one right way to tape.  We welcome applications and techniques that others have developed.  This community based approach to taping integrates concepts from all other methods and provides a framework for the practitioner to determine the best approach.

We have now developed several different options to provide education about kinesiology taping.

  1. The full day courses remain our principal method of introducing the concept of kinesiology taping to the majority of practitioners, as well as teaching them the concepts of “Power Taping”, utilising the benefits of kinesiology taping to tape the muscles associated with a particular activity, linking the muscles of the appropriate kinetic chain, ie lower back, hamstring and calf muscles that make up the posterior chain.  Investment – $290, or $190 for under graduate students.
  2. Our half day courses are attractive to busy practitioners, and those that are just keen to learn the basic principles of kinesiology taping.  These courses focus on the more commonly used Rocktape applications within the three categories of regional taping, oedema taping and postural control.  Investment – $150, or $95 for under graduate students.
  3. Rocktape 2 – a full day course for practitioners wanting to learn more kinesiology taping techniques, and have a more in depth look at the various Power Taping applications.  This course is designed for those who have already completed one of our standard courses, or who are regular users of kinesiology tape.  Investment – $290, or $190 for under graduate students.
  4. New in 2015 is Rocktape Equine – we offer both a full day course covering kinesiology taping applications for both the human and horse, and a half day course focusing on how to assist performance and recovery, during and post competition.  Investment – $390.

All courses have a significant practical component which allows an opportunity for the attendees to attempt taping numerous applications, which is important given it is quite different to rigid tape techniques.  This ensures they feel confident enough to start using Rocktape with their clients when next in the clinic, gym or sports change rooms, and they have many application ideas to use.

Provide something different and unique for your clients.

Adding this new technique to your repertoire is a must for every massage therapist. A scalp and/or face massage is adored by many. Watch as your clients begin requesting longer sessions to specifically include this treatment at the end.

This blend still follows the ancient Indian style but also uses other modern techniques which are well suited for people in our modern fast paced lives. Its benefits are unquestioned.

 The Modernized version of this massage is a combination of Traditional style and more modern techniques to have a more therapeutic approach. The major differences are;

·  The client is lying flat on the massage table (this allows you to provide the massage as an "add on" to their normal therapy).

·  Two variations are taught in the Modern version, the traditional relaxation as well as a deeper more therapeutic version.
