"ACFB training has not just taught me the skills of massage, but also how to better cater to clients' needs, which will be a great help in the massage workplace as well as in becoming a better practitioner"
2013 Diploma of Remedial Massage Student
"I most enjoyed the small class room numbers, it allowed us to reach our full potential and further look into any parts of the course we felt necessary. The trainers at ACFB were approachable and open and a great help during classes, clinic and assessments. The admin/reception staff were amazing at catering to any request"
