Our 4-day Swedish massage course provides the knowledge, skills, and experience to start your journey towards becoming a professional massage therapist. If you aim to work as a Superyacht Stewardess, this additional qualification will help your CV stand out from the rest.

Swedish Massage Course

Our 4-day Swedish Massage course complements our Superyacht Steward/ess course. It allows new crew members to combine being a Stewardess with a Swedish massage qualification. This combination opens up more job opportunities both on and off the water.

The course includes both theory and practical skills. You will learn about health and safety, anatomy, physiology, and full-body massage techniques. You can find a full description of the 4-day course under the key facts section below.

The course price includes £230 in recognition and exam fees.

Having more transferable skills increases your chances of finding your dream job. Superyachts are looking at CV’s with additional skills to help improve the service offered to guests.

Louise, Interior Recruitment Specialist at YPI Crew, says ‘Over the past years, we have seen a huge increase year on year for massage skills, it’s a great advantage for new crew, especially to have this on a CV as it can be added value to the yacht, as with the purchase of a massage table they can offer more to their guests’.

It’s worth pointing out that, as well as qualifications, employers will want to see what practical experience you have, too. Before giving your first full body massage, you must build experience shadowing others. However, the first step is to get qualified!

The Role of a Masseuse on a Superyacht

Most Masseuses working on a Superyeryacht have a dual role, Steward/esses first masseuse second. The role of a Stewardess is well-defined and includes everything from housekeeping to 5* service to the guests and owner. As a masseuse, you would provide soothing and relaxing massages to the guests.
