OMBT Course Content

This course consists of 2 full days of study.

This course is designed to educate beauty therapists to safely provide a service to clients living with or having had cancer. It offers a basic understanding of cancer, what the cancer journey involves and informed massage techniques as an alternative or adjunct to beauty therapy treatments.

The course content will deliver:

  • an understanding of how cancer forms and spreads 

  • the side effects of cancer treatments

  • contra-indications relevant to massage treatments and medical devices

  • how gentle touch works ( through the fascia and nervous system )

  • 2 practical massage sequences

This course will provide the knowledge to safely and confidently deliver a massage or beauty treatment to a client on the cancer journey within the beauty therapist setting.

Salons and Spas investing in this course will be provided with a certificate of recognition for display upon the premises; promoting the business' safe environment for clients with cancer. This certificate may also be used for other advertising such as industry and community magazines, and local newspapers.

OM Ltd will also recognise individual Beauty Therapists who have completed this training on this website.

Although this course is aimed at those working in the beauty and spa industry, massage therapists are also welcome on this course. It's a fantastic way to refresh your Module One information and learn the new head, neck and shoulder technique. However, if you are keen to qualify as an OML and join the National Therapist Listing and S4OM, you need to complete and pass the Module One and Two program.


NB. This course does not provide instruction on beauty or spa treatment techniques and will not comment on subjects outside of the OML facilitators’ scope of knowledge.
