A RANGE of new complementary therapy courses at a North Yorkshire college could be just what the doctor ordered.
Darlington College at Catterick is running a series of courses designed to help people gain a qualification in the ever growing industry.
Programme leader Kathryn L’Estrange said: “The complementary therapy courses that we can offer can be the first rung of the ladder for people wanting to develop a career in the alternative health industry.
“They can act as a stepping stone to a higher foundation degree or simply give people the skills to be able to use the therapies for their own and their family’s health.”
Evening courses include Indian head massage, which starts on October 30 and runs for 19 weeks; Swedish massage, starting November 9, for six weeks; and aromatherapy, starting on March 1, 2007, for six weeks.
There is also an opportunity to gain a LCN qualification in gel nail extensions, a two day course which will be run at the College from November 13.
“If there are any other complementary therapy courses that people are interested in, we would be more than happy to try to arrange them,” added Mrs L’Estrange.
“The benefits of massage and aromatherapy are immense and a qualification in this field can also help if you are thinking about having a career in sport or personal training. The courses can be hard work, but are very rewarding.”
