Would you be interested in attending short training courses held in Cornwall?

I am carrying out research to find out if members of CThA would travel to Cornwall or within Cornwall to attend high quality short courses on various complementary health subjects, approved by bodies, for instance, ITEC/CThA.

I live in Cornwall and have to travel to other counties for 1 to 5 day courses. I am hoping instead, to bring lecturers to Cornwall but first, have to find out if anyone else is interested.

Please email with your views.

Kind regards.

Hi, Poppy -

yes, I would be interested in coming to Cornwall for good quality and varied courses. Don't know where you are situated, but I am in Devon and it's about one and a half hours for me to get to Newquay area for example.

Hi Poppy,

If you do find there are therapists in Cornwall who would like to attend courses, I am a tutor who is willing to travel and offer courses on-site. I teach advanced massage courses such as Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Neuromuscular Technique, Soft Tissue Release, and others. If you're interested in discussing, please contact me on It can make more sense for one tutor to travel rather than a dozen students, and that will usually work out more economically for everyone.
Best wishes,
Nicki Lee

Hi Poppy,
I live near St. Ives in Cornwall and would be interested in attending short courses locally.I find it frustrating that all the courses of interest are out of the county. The advanced massage techniques Nicki Lee mentions sound interesting.
Kind regards Sarah

To all those who replied to my email.

Firstly, my apologies for not returning emails recently but I was diagnosed with breast cancer in February and work has been the last thing on my mind. All is going well now, I'm about to have my final session of chemotherapy, then radiotherapy, herceptin and tamoxifen.

Back to short training courses. I spoke to Sarah Greenhalgh who runs the new Complementary Health School at Cornwall College near Camborne at the beginning of the year, with regards to short courses. They said they intended to along side diploma and degree courses, more information can be found at or by contacting Sarah direct on

I hope this helps.

Kind regards.
