S, Keighley

“I have completed 3 courses with Lois and will be doing more in the future. Lois is a great teacher…welcoming, thorough, patient and very knowledgeable on the therapies she teaches. She is also very supportive of her students after completing their course and has helped me on my adventure to start up my therapy business. I am really pleased I found Earthereal and would recommend anyone who wants to start on the holistic route or add to their existing qualifications to do so with Lois. The courses are thorough, affordable and very enjoyable. I will be back soon! Xx”

J, Keighley (various courses)

“Best training school. If you are really seriously wanting to be a holistic massage therapist then this is the place for you. What I have learnt and gained from here has given me the gift of health and life that I can now share with other people. Best thing that I have ever done.”

N, Bradford (various courses)

“Dear Lois, Thank you so much for the training day yesterday, I really enjoyed it from start to finish. It was so informative, far more than expected and I am grateful for your helpful guidance, hints and tips. Your teaching technique is just great, relaxed, yet focused and right on the button.”

S, Ilkley (Indian head massage student)

I did worry a distance course would be not as good as I know so many people taking them at these online colleges and some feel as if they’re not worth the paper they are written on, but thankfully this course isn’t like that at all, I’m getting so much out of it and it feels thorough already. I will definitely be recommending it. “

2019 update: “I use the techniques I learnt on this course in all my work – highly recommended.”

T, Bingley (one of my first Meditation Teacher course students)

“…So far it’s going very very well! It’s become apparent that E. can’t calm his body at night NOT his mind as I was convinced of before. He giggled the first night but as the week has progressed he’s just relaxed and is asleep before the 1st or 2nd ten minute check…. Thank you so much, it’s really helping….”

K, Bradford (student who qualified in Thai Foot Massage to help her son get to sleep – it was previously taking him 2-3 hours to get to sleep.)

‘After 10 years of living with a child with a sleep disorder, I feel that despite thinking we had tried everything, we learned new techniques.’

‘I suffer from tics and verbal shouting and was terrible on the journey to the seminar. I soon calmed down with the welcoming environment, lovely staff and relaxation exercises. Even my husband, who initially thought it was nonsense, benefitted from the mindfulness exercises.’

‘It has given me the confidence to go and try these things at home.’

‘Lots of ideas that a frazzled, sleep deprived mum would not consider.’

‘Having been shown how to massage, this will be very useful. I will definitely be doing this with my son.’

“I have just completed my 3rd massage course with Lois. I have found her on each occasion to be very professional. Lois is clearly passionate about the content of her courses and this is reflected through her teaching. She is kind and patient and will always ensure you are fully secure in both your knowledge and practical skills before releasing certificates. Her courses are accredited which means I can gain industry insurance through reputable firms and promote my business as offering quality treatments due to the high standard of training I have received. I feel proud displaying my certificates gained from Vitality/Earthereal of Yorkshire and am always looking forward to booking my next training course with Lois.”

The course is very good and gives you the knowledge and the confidence to carry out a full treatment.

Feedback from Carers’ HHAM Diploma course, Skipton

Client Feedback

“I wanted to buy a special package to treat my wife (and self) for a birthday gift. My web searches for a professional but not “chain spa” off the shelf package led me to Earthereal Of Yorkshire and the caring practitioner, Lois Skilleter.

From my very first contact Lois was extremely helpful and through a series of email discussions we developed a customised plan that included Ayurvedic Dosha consultation, Ayurvedic head, hand & arm massage workshops and a full Ayurvedic body massage using tailored oils.

The program was delivered at Lois’s home and treatment room in Ilkley.

Lois also offered help in booking local accommodation and even took into account that we took our two dogs with us and needed to plan “comfort breaks” for them.

From the moment that Lois opened her door, she showed care and a real interest in teaching us what she could over the two days without rushing … The workshops were extremely informative, literally hands on and very enjoyable to be on both the giving and receiving sides… For the body massage, Lois made it very comfortable and atmospheric with the right music and customised massage oils and even a complimentary personalised facial treatment. Once my eyes closed, Lois’s hands quickly found those problem areas and gave both my wife and I an hour each of total escapism.

Overall, the weekend was very well put together and exceeded my expectations for both content and how much Lois could manage to teach us. Lois was very patient and delivered the lessons and massage skilfully and pleasurably.”

C and M, Rotherham (Ayurvedic weekend package clients)
