Study massage at a pace that suits you.

As a student at Sage Institute of Massage, you will also learn from highly experienced ‘real world’ massage instructors, with real world experience from their own thriving practices outside of Sage. Nobody should feel intimidated – our professional massage trainers can adapt their teaching methods to all types of learning styles and capabilities, irrespectve of background.
- Your professional massage table and learning aids are included with your course fees
Every student that commences a massage course with Sage gets the most essential tool of the trade – a portable massage table. Our fees are extremely competitive and also completely transparent – there no hidden charges. Your course fees include your text books, learning materials, and two Sage student clinic T-Shirts. A Certificate 1 and First Aid course are also included in the course fees.

- Student clinic – paid, professional work experience
