I thoroughly enjoyed my experience in O’Fiaich Institute. The teaching styles, teachers, location and fellow students made the experience a really positive one for me. The aspect of the course I enjoyed the most was learning the massage techniques. It was hugely beneficial to receive a professional qualification in sports massage at the end of the year which has allowed me to work in the industry while I continue my studies. I would most definitely recommend this course to anyone with an interest in this field as it not only develops an insight into the World of physiotherapy but it also helps to prepare students for college life by helping to develop personal and social skills.
