I always wanted to pursue a massage international diploma and I am proud to say I have successfully completed the Online Part of the Massage Diploma Course with the Thinktree & Caribbean School of Holistic Therapies.

This Online Course was flexible and convenient for my schedule. The learning resources and materials shared within all 3 units were excellent. Informative, everything was explained clearly and was wonderfully detailed.
