About Us

WC Massage is a massage school in Singapore. We have been teaching for the past 5 years and helping Singaporeans to re-train and re-learn new schools.

Especially in this age of automation, many Singaporeans often find themselves replaced with technology. Our mission is to help people learn new skills – namely massage – and enter new industries.

WC Massage has been voted as one of the top massage schools in Singapore by FinestInCity. We offer massage courses ranging from our body massage course to our swedish massage course.

What are the 5 types of massage?

The 5 types of massage are: deep tissue massage, swedish massage, lymphatic massage, sports massage and oncology massage. These are the most asked-for massages and most therapists decide to specialise in 2 to 3 of them.

For some massages such as the sports massage and oncology massage, you may need to undergo more training (than usual) as these require more care for the client. You will need to have a better understanding of human anatomy before getting your certification to practice in Singapore.

Can you learn massage on your own?

Yes, of course you can! In fact, our founder’s first time giving a massage was to her children after watching a simple massage 101 Youtube video. Her daughter was feeling stressed at school and she decided to help her daughter relax and sleep by giving a basic back massage using techniques that she learnt online.

You don’t need to be an expert in human anatomy or have any fancy essential oils and towels to start. Learning the basics of massage can be done on your own during a weekend.

What is the best oil for massage?

A simple coconut oil is used by most therapists in Singapore but you can also use any oil sold in a massage shop.

Can coconut oil be used for a massage?

Yes, it can. Coconut oil is a great moisturizer and is great for the skin. However, it is not a great lubricant so it may not be suitable for deep tissue massage. It can also be used for an aromatherapy massage by blending coconut oil with essential oils.

Are there any grants that WC Massage is approved for?

Some enquire about using the PSG Grant or SkillsFuture credits for our courses. We are not SkillsFuture approved. The PSG Grant is a government grant for businesses and cannot be used for individuals. Spas may not use the PSG Grant to train therapists either.

How can I learn different massage techniques?

Well, this will depend on whether you’re learning from a massage trainer or yourself. If you’re learning yourself through a Youtube video, get a “test subject”. This might be your partner or child. Watch massage technique videos and practice on your family member while asking for his or her feedback.

If you’re learning in a proper classroom, your massage trainer will assign you a partner. You can practice on your partner while the trainer watches over you. Our massage trainers will give pointers if you’re doing something incorrectly and be able to guide you.

How do you do a full body massage?

First, set up a calm and peaceful environment. Use your essential oils and set up your massage bed and towels. Then, have your client lie down without their clothes and to cover up with a small towel.

Then, play some music and start massaging the client’s back. Start from the top and put more pressure on areas with a lot of tension and stress. Give long relaxing presses on the key areas before moving on to the feet or neck.
