“I studied my Holistic Massage Diploma at Quantum Metta and it was the best thing I ever did. The teachers were wonderful – so knowledgeable, caring and enthusiastic and they put so much effort into making not only the course material but the whole experience exceptional. I learnt so much, and not just about massage but life and wellbeing as well and I left the course fully equipped to practice as a professional massage therapist. I couldn’t recommend Quantum Metta or Dympna, Doreen and Karen enough.”
