"I have recently completed the FHT Diploma in Indian Head Massage course at Infinity Training Academy, and just want to say how much I enjoyed it! I was well informed before hand and was immediately made to feel welcome. The training was of a very high standard and carried out in a friendly and relaxed environment. Sue is a wonderful tutor who is not only professional, but also patient and encouraging. I have already booked on other courses with her, and hope to do many more in the future. I would highly recommend Infinity to anyone."
