"I have noticed some of your courses are just one day, can I learn all I need to in just one day?"

YES! Our philosophy is to keep classes small and give more attention to each student, thus cutting down on class hours. You will learn the same technique offered by other companies however we pride ourselves on one to one tuition in smaller classes.

You may see other companies offering similar courses over two or three days, the difference can be that they take much larger classes and need to be able to get around to all students. This takes them a longer time (due to the large numbers of students in the class) to make sure they are overseeing what the students are doing.

We often offer the same training techniques but as we only take very small numbers and thus are able to teach the course in one day.

We ask our students to fill out a feedback form after their training and often the comments are that they were surprised and pleased how much they learnt in one day. They tell us they would take another course with us due to the high standard we offer both with our tutors and the course material given on the day.

Sometimes students tell us they have learnt more on a one day course with us than on a 2 or 3 day course with another company due to the one to one tuition we offer.

Certificates are only given once students have demonstrated that they have absorbed the information presented during the day and after applying a satisfactory treatment observed by the tutor. To ensure that we act responsibly and carry out good practice, should the tutor feel that you would benefit from further training, certification may/will be held back.

You will offered the opportunity/be asked to attend the next available course that has a space, which is offered FREE of charge. This is rare but we would not be responsible if we sent out students, when the tutor felt they were unsafe in any way, as a day to learn a therapy is only a short time and the standard must be high enough to enable them to issue you with a certificate.

Our tutors are there to help, with small classes it is easy to absorb the techniques you are taught. There are no exams to sit for our 1 day courses only a practical assessment.

You will receive your diploma certificate on the day of training - apart from our Indian head massage course as this requires 3 case studies first (It will display Diploma Practitioners Certificate on it and does not have one day course on your certificate) and once you have practiced and feel confident you are able to take the therapy you have learnt out to the general public and charge for it as they are insurable courses.

Many courses also have training DVD's available, these go over the course you have learnt for an excellent visual back up helping you to remember easily the routines and vital information.

It does not matter which venue you to choose to attend as all tutors teach the same courses and offer the same content. With all courses you attend with Gateway, each student will receive an excellent full manual, which covers the course material and all aspects you have learnt on the day. This makes it easy for you to remember the routine without having to make notes during the day allowing you to have a practical day learning this wonderful new therapy.

For our one day courses the therapy you learn is offered, to your clients for usually 30 - 60 min's, with regards to the price you charge this will depend on what area you live. If you work in Central London a 30 min massage can be as much as £45 and as little as £15 in more rural areas outside London. The advise we would give, is to check out how much therapists are offering a one hour massage in your area and half this cost when offering a therapy for 30 min's, to give you an approximate average and fair cost. The teacher will cover all your questions about your new therapy and setting up as a therapist if new.
