Graduate Testimonials



The Diploma of Remedial Massage at Demi International is the most well-rounded, engaging and practical courses I have ever had the pleasure of completing. I knew from a young age that I always wanted to complete a massage course, yet I had no idea it was going to be remedial. Not only am I now more knowledgeable on the anatomy of the body and how muscles function, but this course has also given me a range of different techniques to treat a variety of different muscles and conditions. I highly recommend completing this course.


Morgan Harris

I have always wanted a career in sports medicine I just didn’t know where to start. Demi International helped me to get my foot in the door, by enrolling in the Certificate of Massage therapy that they offer. After falling in love with the concept I progressed and continued on to do the Diploma of Remedial Massage through Demi also. My teacher Seonaid Boyle was encouraging, supportive and always positive throughout my entire journey. I am certain I wouldn’t have found something I love to do as much as Remedial Massage without her help and the Directors of Demi International. If you are wanting to do something fun, active and rewarding I absolutely recommend this course, you will not be disappointed.
