BTEC Body Massage

Course Content

This unit will enable learners to develop practical massage skills, plus the associated knowledge and understanding that will provide an invaluable foundation for other related body treatments.

Learners will study:

  • The preparation procedures needed for body massage, including preparing themselves, the client and work area, performing client consultations and selecting products, tools and equipment.
  • How to perform body massage treatments following health and safety working practices.
  • How to adapt treatments to suit individual client needs, the uses of the five classical massage movements and uses of different massage mediums.
  • Post-treatment procedures, such as providing aftercare advice and recording results.
  • The underpinning theory associated with body massage treatments, including anatomy and physiology, from skin types and conditions to types of body fat and postural faults, the effects of massage treatments, potential contraindications which could restrict or prevent treatment, and the contractions that could result from treatments.

This unit will give learners the opportunity to perform body massage treatments on a range of different clients and provide the practical experience to help them gain employment.


Participants who fulfil all the requirements and access as competent will receive a Certificate of Unit Achievement issue by Pearson BTEC.
