Would like to thank the fabulous Paula Gardiner for the fab training for Swedish massage last week. Her teaching method is great and she put up with my husband for 2 days. I always enjoy the 1-1 training and would not be able to train at college with their hours and length of training so this has been perfect for me. Thanks you to Paula and to the team at inspire for making this training available xxx

Hot Stone Massage Course, Really enjoyed the course, excellent day, got loads of information, Sarah is an excellent teacher.


I thoroughly enjoyed my training of Swedish Body Massage & Holistic Facial Massage.
Zoe put me at ease as soon as i entered the treatment room. There was a lovely aroma of incense & candles burning when i walked in. This put me into the 'Calm/Relaxed zone' straight away. For anyone booking a course with Zoe you will not be disappointed. Zoe is a lovely tutor & very helpful. I have also booked the Indian Head Massage course with Zoe and i hope to book more courses with her in the New Year. I have found Sarah & Zoe to be very helpful whilst quizzing them both through my emails & they have both responded promptly. Thank you Sarah for all you help & at putting me at ease and your patience whilst i was deciding which courses to take. Kind Regards Natalie O'Brien - Stockport

I found it really interesting and very informative, the practical was very helpful and helped make sense of the theory. Sarah is really friendly and makes it all easy to understand. I really enjoyed my day and would recommend Sarahs courses to anyone.

Dear Katie, I'd just like to thank you so much for the two great courses I attended recently, Colon Massage and Holistic Facial Massage. I learnt so much and you were a great tutor-patient, professional, clear, concise, adapting your tutoring to my visual learning style. I left feeling confident and have already started to use some of what you taught me. I shall definitely be back. I've been using inspire Therapy training for a number of years now and I'm so glad to have discovered this excellent training school. It is easy to book and Sarah is so efficient with her thorough course notes and excellent admin. The courses are very reasonably priced. It is excellent value for money. I wouldn't go anywhere else. I'm happy for you to use my comments on your website- both you and Sarah. Again, many thanks. Take care, Kind regards


Hi Sarah, My daughter, recently attended an inspire manicure and pedicure course withPaula Crabb, Cornwall. I just wanted to write and tell you what a fantastic tutor she is. I am a therapist myself and run my business from a holiday park here in Cornwall. I am so impressed with Yasmin's manicures & pedicures that I am letting her start at Easter. I must admit I was hesitant sending Yasmin on a short course but she learnt everything she needed to know - Paula is very professional - absolutely knows her stuff - she was so well organised, the environment was lovely and everything was so hygienic & clean. I shall definitely be recommending others to her. Thanks very much


I find Wendy very easy to understand, she is patient, very passionate and a joy to work with. I attended Wendy,s home which I found very relaxing and homely. I preferred her home because it was more of a relaxed environment, than learning in a public venue. I cannot find anything for you to improve on, I think you do a great job and I have enjoyed learning through yourself and my tutor Wendy. Thank you

I was hoping I'd enjoy the day and the training course as I'd been planning to come to the UK to do it for a while. The training with Katie more than exceeded not only my expectations in what I hoped to gain out of the course (and the actual treatment itself), but the one-to-one tuition was second to none. Katie was clear and concise in her delivery of the programme, she explained and demonstrated each stage of the routine in a simple to follow manner and any questions I had were answered by her, to ensure I was happy with what I was doing. She happily repeated anything I wanted clarification on and the day went at my pace which was just great - not at all rushed. Katie is a natural teacher; patient, kind and puts you at ease immediately. She welcomed me into her beautiful home and thanks to her wonderful support, I am now qualified to offer this wonderful treatment to my clients here in France. If I choose to train in any further treatments Katie, I'll be in touch - I enjoyed the day so much, and I truly enjoy your style of teaching - I think we really hit it off and we seemed to be on the same 'wave-length', so I would come back to you without hesitation.
All the best


can i just say to the new students..you've made the best decision ever..10 months ago i found inspire, and paula the cornwall tutor...now i've cherry picked the courses i wanted, have opened a busy little salon, and have a totally enjoyable new career..all with two weeks to go to my 60th b/day..a whole new direction for me...and new friends as well...you'll never regret choosing inspire ladies...best of luck!!!
