One of our favourite parts of what we do is getting to see how our learners’ qualifications allow them to flourish in their career and turn their dreams into reality. Today, we’re sharing the student success story of Harminder Singh Swaley, who completed a Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy with us in 2018. He now owns the award-winning Infinity Massage Therapy in Brighton

Harminder developed an enjoyment for massage at the young age of five years old when he began offering massages to family members – massage is an important part of Indian culture. As an adult, Harminder entered a career in sales, and while he enjoyed the regular interaction with other people, his heart wasn’t in it. That’s when he made the decision to retrain in a career that would make him feel fulfilled, and he began his YMCAfit massage course in Brighton. 

After finishing his massage course in 2018, Harminder spent a year working part-time and honing his craft, then in 2019, he accomplished his dream of opening his own massage business, Infinity Massage Therapy in the heart of Brighton. It has steadily built a loyal customer base and was even awarded Favourite Health & Beauty Salon by the Argus in summer 2023 – an award that’s voted on by the local community. Harminder has brought on more staff to support the business, and he’s even in the process of expanding the business across Sussex, with new locations planned in Hove and Eastbourne.

When reflecting on his time studying with YMCAfit, Harminder says, “I’m really happy I chose to do my qualification with the YMCA. They were fantastic from start to finish, helping source a 25-plus student loan to fund the course and creating a fun and engaging environment! I highly recommend them.” He loves that he gets to engage with all different types of people on a daily basis while offering a service that positively impacts their lives. 

We’re so happy to see Harminder succeeding in a field he’s passionate about, and we can’t wait to see all the amazing things he’ll accomplish in the years ahead of him!
