The ultimate massage training from Q Academy through TAFE

TAFE has partnered with Q Academy, Queensland’s leading Massage and Myotherapy college to offer their in demand science-based Remedial Diploma.

The new Remedial Diploma covers the broadest range of modalities and skills such as Swedish & Pregnancy Massage, Trigger Point and Thermo-Therapy, Myofascial & Positional Release Techniques plus the in-demand modalities of Reflexology, Shiatsu and Thai Massage which gives our graduates the best opportunity to succeed in clinical practice.

The key feature of the course is the extensive range of orthopaedic assessment and remedial treatment techniques provided which are all based on the same text books as used by Physiotherapists and Chiropractors providing a solid framework for collaborating with these allied health professions.

A new feature for 2017 is the inclusion of health and nutrition as well as sports strength and conditioning in the course, providing a very broad base of skills for the therapist thereby increasing their scope of treatment options for their client and their own earning potential.  Course details
