What you will learn
Massage is a healing art that is centuries old. It has been used to relax, invigorate, help heal the body and centre the mind. Training with Berit and Andrew you will come away from this massage course with a modern, holistic approach that has been refined over the past 130 years.
You will gain understanding on how to approach the body and treat specific regions and identify and treat common problems such as headaches, lower back pain, neck pain stiffness and more. You will understand how to approach people safely who have different needs such as the pregnant or elderly.
There will be basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology provided. You will have an understanding of endangerment sites of the body and how to work around them. How and when to use various pressures and techniques depending on which part of the body you are working with and how your client presents.
Who will benefit from this course?
Suitable for both beginners wanting to start out in massage therapy and experienced massage practitioners that would like a different approach.
