COVID-19 Update

6 November – Update.  We are pleased to confirm that we can remain open as usual for teaching throughout lockdown.  We have also had confirmation from MTI that our practitioners can continue to see clients due to the Diploma level 4/5 of their qualification.  We will of course continue to meet our high standards of Covid safety.


We are very happy to announce that we are now open once more for teaching and for practitioners to see clients

Teaching update: Following the example of universities and further education Colleges to minimise face to face contact where possible, BCMB has designed and adopted a blended approach to massage teaching.  For us, these means teaching much of our theory content on line using the Zoom platform, and practical skills will be taught and practised in small bubbles of students using full PPE here in the College.  You can find out more about our approach in our plan.

We have gone to great effort to make sure that BCMB is a safe environment for students, clients, practitioners and staff.  You can view our Covid-19 risk assessment and procedures here.  Please abide by these when at BCMB so we can all help to keep each other safe.

Latest PPE advice!  We have produced a video covering the latest PPE advice in readiness for massage therapists being allowed to return to practice.  You can watch it here.  Please note – this information is correct as at 4 July. We will update it as soon as the guidance changes.

Student Clinic Clients – we need you! Our next clinic is on Saturday 17/Sunday 18 October – please call 0117 946 6371 to book.  Find out more

I have loved every second of this course, I have acquired life-changing skills, I don’t want it to end.  The learning experience has been enriching, supportive, wonderful.
