What Our Clients Say About Us

I used Elemi to gain my Reflexology Diploma as they were affordable, had flexible course dates meaning I could complete at my own pace and were FHT accredited. I attended 8 days in total including assessment, each was well structured and balanced with a good combination of theory, practice and experiential input from the tutor. Both Karen & Mandy were approachable, receptive and supportive. Best of all less than 6 months after I started my training I am fully qualified, have regular paying reflexology clients, and I know I am good at what I’m doing. I’d definitely consider Elemi for further therapy training or CPD and can highly recommend them to other practising or potential therapists.

When I decided to embark on my holistic therapy journey I wanted to ensure I received the best training opportunity and I found Elemi. With my Indian Head Massage training I can say it was provided with the most thorough knowledge, the most supportive encouragement and provided the confidence I needed to ensure my clients now receive first class treatments. I would recommend Elemi Training to anyone who was thinking of this kind of career.

Pauline Brown

Training with Elemi has been an experience I will not forget. Coming from a non-therapy background, the Reflexology course I attended last Summer has completely changed my life and opened my eyes to a whole new world to explore.

Not just in terms of learning a new skill, but also in terms of learning about myself. With the support and now continued support from the trainers and peers, my confidence and general well being has blossomed.

I can only speak highly of the dedication and passion that Elemi put into their training, the environment also is one to be savoured, so peaceful and relaxing.

Thank you for holding space for me during my training, and I look forward to attending more courses with you in the future.

I spent some time trying to find a Reflexology course that would offer both intensive training but also offer the highest recognised level of qualification. I’m so glad I found the Elemi course.

The course venue was fantastic – a lovely studio that had a wonderful vibe and made learning a real pleasure. Mandy was so friendly and helpful and made sure we always had a variety of teas and snacks and the equipment and products were of the highest quality.

Karen is a truly wonderful, inspirational tutor. It was great that we could draw on her vast knowledge of not just reflexology but other therapies. The course was intensive but Karen made it relaxing and interesting and we had a lot of fun and laughter learning.

I would definitely do further courses with Elemi and would happily recommend them to other therapists.

Deborah Noakes

Just arrived home from my first course with Elemi Training! A wonderful place to enjoy a comfortably paced course.

Mandy is experienced and puts everyone at ease from the minute they walk in the door. No need to be nervous, you are amongst friends when you enter the Elemi training centre.

I completed a one day course on pregnancy massage after being away from massage for some time. I feel confident enough to carry out a pregnancy massage now ive learnt such useful skills and tips from Mandy.

Well done I’ll be back!

I attended the pregnancy massage course here, thoroughly enjoyed myself. Fantastic tutor, beautiful surroundings and learnt so much. Enjoyed learning with Mandy at Elemi that I have enrolled on the Aromatherapy course here too, feel I will learn so much from a very experienced tutor. Looking forward to Friday.

I cannot recommend Mandy enough. She is a fantastic teacher and took the time to answer my questions and made me feel confident in every technique taught, the surroundings are beautiful and the course manual was a great resource to take away, will be booking more courses with Elemi in the future!

Marika Arlette Langlois

I finished my 2 day Hot & Cold stone massage training today and all I can say is a huge thank you!

I am really going to enjoy introducing this to my clients and taking my business and massages to the next level.

This was the perfect training course for me as it really feels like the trainers want you to succeed and to a high level.

I would highly recommend training with Elemi & once I am ready I will definitely book in for another holistic training course.

Thank you!

Roz Miles

Had a great session at elemi training, learnt a lot about my skin and how to use the correct products for me. Would recommend highly.

Jenna Heather

I recently attended the Love Your Skin workshop, it was a brilliant afternoon. I learnt so much about my skin, it was informative and fun at the same time! I now know what products I need to use and how to look after my skin properly. I would highly recommend the workshop.

Sophie Fuller

Attended a Love Your Skin workshop and what a truly educational, informative, relaxing, enjoyable workshop it was! The professional approach & in depth knowledge sharing was excellent – not to mention the fantastic do-it-yourself facial. My skin feels great & I feel I can now make informed choices about the products I buy to suit my skin type. Thank you Elemi!

Michelle Collett Evans

Where to start… with a “wow” is always nice! The training room is surrounded by fields and horses and set in a fantastic outhouse in a large garden. So as settings go, this school has got to be about the best one I’ve been too. Always nice to make a start after grounding yourself in nature.

I was here to start learning Indian Head Massage. I purposely chose this school as this course is accredited by the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT); a proper course, for those wanted more than basic knowledge. Our tutor was Karen; a very friendly, welcoming, experienced tutor with many years of working and teaching in a holistic setting. Everything was explained clearly, and being able to practice / and be practised on by fellow students gave a great insight into this wonderful treatment. I finished the first weekend feeling confident to start my case studies, with the knowledge that Karen and Mandy are there for support if needed and look forward to completing the course soon…

Shelley Foster

Nicole Hazell

Lovely place, training room was comfortable and serene. I did the hand and ear reflexology course. My tutor was amazing. Knowledge and caring just oozed out of her. She was very friendly and approachable. I would recommend elemi to any therapist or newby wanting to learn more skills.

Teresa Rosbottom

Had pregnancy massage training with Mandy, was full of great knowledge & fun at the same time. Without a doubt would recommend to anyone who either needs to refresh themselves or girls who are straight out of college, get yourself to Mandy to expand your knowledge! xxx

Jamie-Leigh Brailey

I originally studied Aromatherapy with Mandy at Elemi and what an incredible journey it was, Mandy is a fantastic teacher, full of love, knowledge and support. The course was hard at times but I never felt overwhelmed as the environment that is created at Elemi is enriching and so very relaxed. I have been back since qualifying and studied Hot and Cold Stone massage which was also amazing!! I look forward to furthering my skill set with Elemi. XX

Rhi Honeybee

I was thrilled to do my level 3 Aromatherapy with Elemi. The training room is a tranquil, serene and peaceful environment, where you’re gently encouraged to learn, express yourself and develop your skills – Mandy was a joy to have as a tutor! Extremely knowledgeable, and supportive every step of the way. Training with Elemi isn’t just ‘a course’, it’s a life enhancing personal journey.

Courtney Giles

I love love loved the body massage course with Elemi. The small groups allowed for extra attention for newbies like me and there was a perfect balance of nurturing our learning, alongside giving a firm metaphorical ‘shove’ when needed! By the end of the course I was full of confidence and enthusiastic to use my new Massage skills and to learn more and more complementary therapies with Elemi. Thank you Mandy for all your knowledge, patience and encouragement!

Jo Hawkins

I completed my Level 3 Body massage course at Elemi this year and highly recommend it! Mandy is an incredibly warm, experienced and professional teacher, who makes you feel instantly capable and provides just the right amount of support and encouragement to be self led. I have done massage courses in the past and found myself dropping out at the last hurdle, but I am so glad I persevered and took this course! The syllabus is easy to follow, there is plenty of time built in for self exploration, and each class is tailored to your small group so you don’t feel rushed. Mandy’s studio space is also very inspiring, I will certainly miss lunches sat out in her beautiful garden, and listening to the bird song! For the amount of support and course resources you get this is such good valuable for money, and is well worth it for the confidence you get once qualified. Thanks Mandy! X

Trudi Holden
