About Scottish Massage Schools

Scotland's leading provider of Complementary Therapies training

Scottish Massage Schools was founded in 1992 by Maggie Brooks-Carter DO RGN SMTO and Nick Carter DO MBRA FSMTO to be a centre of excellence in the training of all levels of Massage Therapy – a science that has been used throughout time. It is now a growth industry thanks to its success in treating many common disorders as well as playing an important part in health maintenance.

Despite there being very little publicity for Complementary Therapies in 1992, there was lots of interest in the first course. Back in 1992, very few students had experienced massage and it was thanks to the efforts of Maggie and Nick encouraging promotional activities that the word really got round. Students and graduates would attended sports events, health shows, give talks at schools across Scotland, offered Awareness Days - Migraine Awareness, Back Pain Awareness and Stress Awareness (the latter wasn't easy as it wasn't cool then to consider oneself stressed) in major cities.

Maggie and Nick attended many Health Shows to promote Scottish Massage Schools. At each venue, there would be requests for courses to be offered in those areas.

Clinical Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Indian Head Massage and On-site Chair Massage Diploma courses were added to the career progressioin due to requests. CPD workshops are also widely available throughout the country.
