Amethyst Trust

A structured and scientific approach to the provision of post graduate massage therapy training to therapists who would like to provide massage to clients who have experienced cancer.

The Amethyst Trust is an initiative between John Holman of Hydrotherm by John Holman Therapy solutions and The International Beauty and Holistic Academy (IBHA)

John Holman is an industry pioneer and the designer of the 3 dimensional massage system called Hydrotherm.

The IBHA is the brainchild of Julie Speed and Debbie Moore and offers a high calibre training academy from entry level, CPD and post graduate finishing courses ensuring therapists are qualified and commercially viable

A scientific approach

The two parties have combined to create a structured and scientific approach to the provision of massage training to therapists who wish to provide treatments to those in treatments or recovering from cancer.


The quality of our information and services is best reflected in the attainment of endorsement from Penny Brohn cancer care where our information was peer reviewed by the specialist team of Doctors and the offer of insurance to therapists trained and qualified by us from a highly reputable medical malpractice insurer which has none of the restrictive requirements or caveats of the current industry suppliers.

Social responsibility

The Amethyst Trust is a socially responsible organisation that directs funds from every training course sold through their not for profit charitable trust whilst also supporting those with cancer directly by supporting Penny Brohn Cancer care

Mission Statement

The Amethyst Trust is a collaboration of industry experts who are passionate about the benefits of massage for those undergoing treatment or in recovery from cancer. We provide professional quality training and insurance for all therapists to enable them to welcome anyone with a history of cancer into their salon or spa.
