    Hi I am interested in your holistic massage course and I notice it has just started. Could you tell me when the next one is starting. Also if there was any chance of jumping in that would be great. I am a yoga and pilates teacher so I have some anatomy training already. Thank you. Suzie Dodd 0863137219
