Course Description

“Massage is a gentle and effective way of helping the body to heal itself.”

Over 2000 years ago Hippocrates said “rubbing can bind a joint that is too loose and loosen a joint that is too rigid.” This is what is so amazing about massage – the same brisk movements that can induce an invigorated feeling can be softened and performed slowly to induce sleep.

Massage has both physical and psychological benefits. This course has been designed to teach the student the more refined techniques of massage which are easy to learn.
