The S.E.E.D. Institute (Self-Exploration, Education and Development) was originally founded in 1986. The S.E.E.D. Institute has been successfully training people to become professional therapists for over 30 years. In addition to our Core Massage Qualification, our Clinical Aromatherapy Diploma and our extensive Post-graduate/CPD Courses, we offer many Aromatherapy and Ayurveda 'taster' courses to those interested in 'dipping their toes' into this fascinating world of natural and preventative healthcare. If you would love to provide holistic health care safely for your family and friends, these 'taster' courses are tailor made for you.

Our Aromatherapy, Ayurveda and Massage training and many of our Post-graduate Courses have been created by our founders bringing their wealth of experience not only in Aromatherapy, Ayurveda and Advanced Massage disciplines but, in addition, their vast knowledge of 'holism' which is at the foundation of all of our core courses.

We have an excellent team of Guest Tutors, offering a wide range of Post-graduate courses from Tsuboki Facials to Hot Stone Massage, Reiki (all levels) to specialised Abdominal Massage. We have courses accredited by the IFPA, the FHT and the CThA and all of our courses are accepted for CPD by most therapy associations. Our Guest tutors are not only highly qualified and teach internationally, but all have a warm and engaging teaching approach. This approach is fundamental to our ethos of delivering wholesome courses which also make learning fun and put the student's well-being at the centre of their learning experience.

Our aim is to assist practitioners to be holistic in their perceptions, outlook and practice by offering courses that teach the best of both eastern and western approaches to assessment and treatment.

Course numbers are intentionally limited to afford students individual support during their studies.
