Advanced Massage & Clinical Anatomy

Do you want a deeper understanding of what’s under the skin?

This two day hands on masterclass is designed for working therapists wishing to revisit and further develop their understanding and massage techniques when working with the lower back, pelvis and neck and shoulders. These are problem areas for lots of clients, so it’s essential we understand the relationships of muscles in these areas. 

The course is designed to enable each student to work at their own pace to build their confidence and develop usable hand skills; including palpation and treatment techniques.+/*-

We will be learning techniques to find the key muscles and the tissue between them, and additional massage techniques to help your clients.
