We have carried out a full risk assessment to ensure that the highest standards of safety are in place for everyone coming in to the school, the decisions were based on the location, the layout and how we could modify the interior set up so that it meets the new health and safety requirements.

Massage Refresher Course

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

It is suitable for both the novice and the working massage therapist. It will establish and improve your depth, 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 massage without stressing your hands.



If you have answered yes to any of these questions then NLSSMs’ weekend Sports Massage Introduction course is for you.

This will be a diverse group of skilled or beginner therapists.  Everyone will be learning the principles of working both deeply & sensitively with ease. Increase your abilities by making adjustments to how you work. For whatever reason you choose to come to us we will ensure that your day is individualised for you.

This course is for those aged 18+ years. 

This course is not for you if…

…you want to go over anatomy or have questions about advanced techniques, or you’re seeking new creative ideas, you would be better advised to book a one-to-one session with Susan to address your individual needs.
