Massage Introduction Course

The Massage Introduction Course is a one day practical course with supporting online material, covering the fundamental principles of massage.

It is suitable for both the beginner and the working massage therapist.

It will establish and improve your soft tissue skills, achieving both depth and sensitivity using effortless methods.

Techniques that will be covered include effleurage, petrissage and deep strokes, enabling you to give a top-to-toe deep tissue massage. Our focus will be to develop your skills, allowing you to give a safe and effective sports massage without stressing any part of your body.

Despite the name, sports massage isn’t just for athletes. Deep tissue massage (as it’s known) is for everyone and benefits all of us in many positive ways, physically and psychologically.
