What I would highlight the good thing about these courses is that they fire your imagination and creativity. We were teached an easy massage routine and from that point we can expand and learn more in a creative way.

Aromatherapy & Cancer

A

17/02/2016
What I would highlight It covered many aspects and considerations. The support material was good and the assignments required research, thought and some lateral thinking. For my field of work they were very useful. The senior management team at the Hospice asked me to use the aroma testing template. It will be a way of introducing the concept of aromatherapy. I hope we can establish a therapeutic relationship through alternative medicine. Also many thanks to S.E.E.D., they always answered quickly. The material they give you is very useful and the assignments are very well explained.

What I would highlight I spent a lovely time on Friday. I am really excited for someone to phone me for a Pinda Sweda massage. The tutoring was excellent and I felt very much at home. I look forward to spending time with you again.

Aromatherapy & Ayurveda

A

10/02/2016
What I would highlight You will receive a workbook with a lot of information well presented. If you also use the recommended books for the course, you will find a lot of information on history, phylosophy and practical application of Ayurvedic therapies. The section with essential oils is really useful if you want to combine Ayurvedic principles with your massage routines. They were also very fast replying by email, they would usually answer me the same day. I was constantly receiving feedback, which made me feel confident that I was learning and that I was being guided to fields of knowledge that needed more study.

Ayurvedic Facial & Marma-point Face-Massage

A

10/02/2016
What I would highlight Our teacher was brilliant and I could ask all kind of questions. She always answered and tried to help you understand everything. I had been strugglinf for ages with some content and she knew how to make me understand. The theoretical content was in-depth enough to help me with my clients. The practical part of the course was perfect because I know I am able to offer this service to my clients.

Ayurvedic Facial & Marma-point Face-Massage

A

10/02/2016
What I would highlight Ayurvedic oils and creams are divine because now I look five years younger. My skin is soft and replenished. Right now I am really relaxed because the heat from the hot stones dissolved all the tension in my neck. This Ayurveda course also made me realise that I had not felt a sense of well being during years. This course is much more than a facial massage. I am really looking forward my next appointment.

Aromatherapy & Ayurveda

A

06/02/2016
What I would highlight As Ayurveda is a very complex science, we went thorugh a lot of information in two days. I imagine it's difficult to put so much knowledge in only two days. The first time I read the booklet I was a bit overwhelmed. However, additional research made me achieve the assignments.

What could be improved Very well organised for only two days! I cannot say anything negative.

Aromatherapy for the Elderly

A

05/02/2016
What I would highlight All the theory we learned was very interesting. I feel that I have learned more with this distance learning course than if I had attended classes, because the S.E.E.D. institute allows you to set your own pace. You can put more effort or more time, it is you who decide. I really enjoyed the course, it was informative and I have already had the chance to use it with my clients.

Babies & Children Massage (with essential oil data)

A

03/02/2016
What I would highlight The content was well laid out, easy to understand and follow. In order to do assignments, you need to go over a lot of theory, which gives you the opportunity of expanding on the knowledge provided. Thank you for all the help I was given during the course. Alison was really quick answering my emails. He even provided me with alternatives when something did not apply to me.

Ayurvedic Pinda Sweda Massage

A

03/02/2016
What I would highlight I was really delighted when I received all the course materials at home. The information was clear and goodand I also had an Ayurveda book from a friend. The DVD was great and instructive and you can watch it as many times as you want, a good resource! In the past I tried other distance learning courses and it was always difficult to finish them because I lost interest. But this course managed to keep my interest alive. The theory gave me the basics and then I could focus on the bolus and the massage application. This course gave me the perfect quantity to start applying little bits of it to my life.

Aromatherapy & Ayurveda

A

02/02/2016
What I would highlight This course was ideal for me because I had no knowledge about Ayurveda. The structure of the course was very helpful regarding the contents and the way they lead the research on the internet. The information was also very interesting. This isn't the first time I've done a distance learning course. Other distance learning courses focus on intellectual essays and on writing, but in this course I was told that I could write what I felt was most useful to capture the essence of the subject. This encourages you to learn more passionately. I did not hesitate to ask many questions and they replied very quickly! I would highly recommend this course and I really look forward to doing other courses of this Institute in the near future.

Ayurvedic Indian Head Massage

A

08/01/2016
What I would highlight Before starting this course, I already knew something about Ayurveda. This course gave me greater insight into this philosophical approach to health and illness. It wasn't easy to change my perspective, but the effort was worth it. The concept of doshas, prakriti and vikruti is difficult to understand. But it gives you a broader and deeper appreciation of another belief system.

The administration was clear and straight forward. Although I did not need the help of my tutor, his feedback in my assignments was concise and useful!

Tsuboki: Japanese Foot Massage

A

05/01/2016
What I would highlight Theory and Practice were perfectly combined and structured. Even after the course, you can follow up with the content, which I love. This course has a really good balance and the course notes are even better than I had expected: clear, logical and understandable. Although I learnt a lot of information at once, I feel confident that I will be able to apply it to my work.
