Introductory Massage Workshop 

Learn the Basic Massage Techniques

This 2 day workshop is an entirely practical course which will concentrate on performing techniques such as effleurage and petrissage.

Although this course is a pre-requisite for those wishing to attend the level 5 diploma, It is also suitable for people who have no previous experience but are interested in massage.

If you are unsure if massage is for you, then the introductory weekend will help you to decide. You will receive a certificate of completion. You are under no obligation to enrol on to the diploma if you do not wish to do so.
