She started out as a (very) mature student and didn't have time to waste!

Dawn teaches Massage and also Aromatherapy Massage. Dawn, Kerrie and Lorraine were all in the same class when the school first opened in January 2005. They were all great students and Jackie is lucky to have them back at the school to teach for her.

What Our Clients have to say
‘Professionally taught by great tutor – started learning immediately from Day 1 of the course. Hard work but really enjoyable (appreciated realistic advice about level of homework)’ Lesley Knights
Jackie’s school is a genuinely friendly place. It was that atmosphere which made me join up for a sports massage course and I wasn’t disappointed. My teachers Lorraine and Persia were brilliant and made learning relaxed and fun. The school’s association with Norwich City FC meant I got lots of hands on experience in a professional environment. I can recommend the course and the school without hesitation.
I first attended Jackie Hamilton School of Therapies in 2009/2010 when I took the massive step of a change in career. I successfully undertook a Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology - I wasn't disappointed and I haven't looked back.
