My name is Marc Innes and I am the owner and Principal of the School of Natural Therapies.
I must begin by saying that I feel honoured and excited to be the proud owner and Principal of a school that has had an excellent reputation for the past 25 years!
Since I took ownership of the school and the role of Principal, it has grown from a small but personal establishment, into one of the busiest training academies in London, specialising in Clinical Sport and Remedial Massage training and holistic massage therapy training, but without compromising that personal touch we have always had an outstanding reputation for.
I am immensely proud of the dedicated team of tutors and industry experts who teach for us, alongside the reputation we have established for excellence in coaching, supporting and preparing students for the big wide industry out there!!!
I began my career in the NHS, working in a number of managerial and training roles within the Ambulance Service in London – I spent much of that time educating and coaching medical staff. Over time I developed an interest in all things complementary to Allopathic Medicine, in particular, Reiki Healing, which along with EFT, culminated in me running a successful teaching and ‘energy healing’ practice in Brighton.
Having spent many years in the medical profession, I have an extensive knowledge of Anatomy & Physiology and I have been invited on several occasions to coach medical staff & Drs in resuscitation and emergency care procedures; this sound medical knowledge has also served me well in the massage and complementary therapy industry.
I have studied and taught many forms of massage over the years, including Holistic, Sports & Deep Tissue and Aromatherapy. For the past four years I have written manuals, taught Post Grad, Advanced and CPD courses to the massage industry and filmed instructional DVD’s .
It is fascinating to combine what I have learnt over the years in the allopathic medical world, with massage and complementary health and I firmly believe that all disciplines can be ‘complementary’ with one another to help bring about ‘well-being’ and vitality for everyone who seek this kind of treatment. Whether you wish to qualify in our ITEC Holistic Massage Diploma course, study Sports and Remedial Massage or Reflexology, I look forward to welcoming you to one of our popular courses here at the School.
