This workshop is for anyone who has an interest in learning the basics of massage for home use, or is considering professional training and would like a taster.
For Home Use
This is an excellent opportunity for people who regularly receive massage therapy, but would like to learn some basic skills to use at home. Nothing beats a good professional deep tissue massage, but knowing how to help massage away shoulder aches & pains on a daily basis can be a huge advantage for busy or stressed people.
For Professional Use
Taking a massage training course is a big commitment, both in time and money – and it is important to be sure before taking the plunge that you have the right core skills. The intuitive “feel” for effective bodywork, the mental approach for the academic side of the work – you will need to know anatomy, physiology and pathology in depth – and the necessary communication skills for working with clients. This workshop will help you discover whether professional massage training is for you.
