  21. Ms Cannon

    I’m very pleased I chose to train at Omni Academy of Beauty; the staff are extremely professional and approachable and the focus is on practical learning in the classes. Each class built upon your knowledge and new skills learnt from the previous session. I also liked working with a small group of students as you got to know people well and felt comfortable learning with them. I couldn’t fault the course and couldn’t recommend Omni highly enough.

  22. Marion Elizabeth Towner

    I trained in Swedish Massage at OMNI and the professional practice ethos and learning atmosphere / environment was enhanced by the absolute attention to detail encouraged by all those teaching there. Hugely supportive and encouraging when it came to completion of assignments and examination time – greatly appreciated. Fabulous place to learn, a vast amount of expertise and wonderful people. The beauty arena is somewhat different to my nursing background and I loved the contrast! Teaching me to honour myself and the value of surrendering to the couch for some pampering. Never underestimate what it is that you as a therapist do to help your clients feel good and look good 🙂 Time for the therapist in me to emerge I feel and so I would not hesitate to develop skills and learn more at the Omni Beauty Academy 🙂

  23. Diana Botting

    I’ve just completed my four day course on Swedish Body Massage and cannot recommend this course or Omni highly enough. I’m a more ‘mature’ student who was feeling nervous about returning to learning. Carolyne, Founder & Principal of the school, totally put me at ease, she is an excellent tutor, extremely informative in a fun, calm way.
    The course content was perfectly balanced and I now feel confident about going forward to complete this and other courses in the future.
