Q: How can it be that I will be able to give a fully integrated Alchemy of Touch Massage Session after such a short training while other schools require many months or even years?

A: At the Alchemy of Touch Massage Academy, we emphasize learning-by-doing. Tapesh and Anouk will teach you the exact knowledge of the strokes, precise anatomy and body reading all simultaneously. We offer a detailed learning manual which you will take home for your continued study, but Alchemy of Touch Trainings bring you to the essence of massage in an immediate, direct & practical way. We believe that a training does not need to take a long time if the techniques have been shown effectively, and that the real study of massage is in its ongoing practice & experimentation. We also teach from the understanding that everybody has a unique healing capacity waiting to be explored. We create a space in which people learn how to tap into this extraordinary gift through their hands and their heart.

Q: How do I apply for one of your Trainings?

A: – You can click on the apply button and fill in the application form. To ensure a space in your training of choice we ask you for your understanding of 30% deposit of the total Tuition Fee. The other 70% payment has to be made 3 weeks prior to the starting date of the training.

Q: What is the cost of your trainings?

A: Because our trainings are found in different locations around the world, the pricing for our trainings differs in reflection to the production costs.
