Chrysalis Teaching Ethos

We run small, friendly and informal courses to start your journey into the fascinating world of complementary therapies.

We believe that learning should be enjoyable and does not always have to lead to an exam and that learning for pleasure is equally valuable.

We aim to enable our students to work at their own pace and adapt our teaching to encompass any particular learning or physical needs.

We feel privileged to be able to take our students from a place of interest in complementary therapies to being able to confidently carry out treatments within their home environment.

We welcome existing therapists who would like to try out another skill before committing to an in-depth diploma course.

Corporate Health and Well-Being

Julie and Carol have taken Chrysalis into corporate settings for health and well-being days and to give talks about using the therapies for self help both at home and in the workplace. They will be pleased to meet the needs of your company for Team-Building activities, Stress Management/Awareness events, regular mini-treatments within the workplace or on your exhibition stand as a service to your visitors!

Contact us for an individual programme - A happy work-force is a productive work-force!

We are also experienced in delivering health and well-being talks and lessons within Schools both to pupils and for staff inset days.  Ring us for more information if you would like to involve us in your plans for your school.
