The Goddess House School of Holistic Therapies opened its doors in March 2019, bringing to students comprehensive weekend courses in massage therapy and healing modalities where high standards of teaching are our passion.
The idea of the School was born out of the necessity for a more rounded approach to learning Complementary Therapies, where the concepts of energy and energetic connectivity among people were taught, understood and realised, enabling students to be fully prepared when working with energy fields and human touch.
This inspiring project is being led by Nandini Gibbins, an experienced teacher and therapist (see below for more info). All courses at the School are fully accredited as professional qualifications by IICT (International Institute for Complementary Therapists). Students will receive a manual, certificate on completion of the course and support from tutor during and after courses.

24th/25th April 2021 – Elemental Goddess Healing
This interactive spiritual healing works with the four elements, the transformative energies of Goddess and it combines healing touch, sound and body work. The healing also moves through the body’s four energetic layers: the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical body. The course will both cover how to work with Goddess energy and how to apply this energy into healing work.
22nd/23rd May 2021 – Chakra Therapeutics Balancing
This course explores the concepts of chakras and auras, giving full and clear explanations of how blockages in our chakras (energy centres) can lead to mental, physical and spiritual discord. You’ll discover how to recognise the symptoms of these and how to heal yourself and others of specific conditions, through energy healing. The course finishes with guidance on how to conduct a healing session.

3rd/4th July 2021 – Indian Head Massage – Domnu Room
Based on ancient Ayurveda principles, Indian Head Massage helps to relieve stress, reduce tension and improve flexibility in the shoulders, neck and arms. It boosts circulation and may relieve: stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis. It leaves the client deeply calmed and relaxed, often feeling energised, revitalised and better able to concentrate. This course will also help you to develop your intuition when performing this massage technique.
10th/11th July 2021 – EFT: Emotional Freedom Technique
Often referred to as “Psychological acupressure”, the technique works by releasing blockages within the energy system which are the source of emotional intensity and discomfort. These blockages in our energy system, in addition to challenging us emotionally, often lead to limiting beliefs and behaviours and an inability to live life harmoniously. Resulting symptoms are either emotional and/ or physical and include lack of confidence and self-esteem, feeling stuck anxious or depressed, or the emergence of compulsive and addictive behaviours.
An EFT treatment involves the use of fingertips rather than needles to tap on the end points of energy meridians that are situated just beneath the surface of the skin. The treatment is non-invasive and works on the ethos of making change as simple and as pain free as possible. EFT is also known as Tapping Therapy.
