Do you want to know more about massage and how it benefits the body, mind and soul?  

     Do you want to learn about beauty treatments that you can do on yourself, someone else or qualify as a therapist ?

No need to be a Therapist, anyone can learn and benefit. 

Do you know somebody that would benefit from a massage knowing the correct way to do it and the effects of massage and helping them with pain relief ?             Muscles stimulated in the correct way respond more and therefore function better so massage is best done knowing the muscles, the direction of muscles and the different techniques

       With the day couples experiences it is nice to have hands on treatments with someone you know, giving you more confidence and also knowing you are helping each other with genuine relieve.

A sports person, gymnast or a dancer will greatly benefit from having massages to strengthen and tone muscles and prevent injury. Perhaps you are a parent with a child that could benefit from the course, think how much more effective your child could be if you could reguarly massage those muscles to ease tension and any aches and pains, helping them to perform better. 

Courses are accrediated as well as certificate of attendance for those who are not a therapist but want to help others.

Once booked, you will need to give 72 hours notice to cancel your place on the course. If you fail to attend a booked course or cancel outwith the 72 hours you will not be entitled to a refund or offered an alternative course.



LEARN HOW TO DO;                 Massage,  —–Face, Back, Legs, Arms and Full Body

                   Advanced and Deep Tissue Massage Course For Qualified Therapists

  • Deep Tissue and Advanced Massage Techniques

  • Palpation

  • Neuro-muscular techniques  (NMT)

  • Hands free techniques

  • Comprehensive manual

Unlike classic massage therapy which is generally used for relaxation, this technique enables the therapist to focus on and treat specific problems. The general public is increasingly requesting deeper and more advanced techniques due to their effectiveness in treating a host of specific issues, the most prevalent being back and shoulder pain.


This Course Will Teach You How to Apply Deep Tissue and Advanced Massage Techniques

  • The Deep Muscles of the legs including Hamstrings, Illio-Tibial Band & Quads

  • Muscles of the lower leg such as the Gastrocnemius

  • Muscles of the Back

  • Muscles of the Arms and Shoulders

  • Feet

The course aims to help you develop advanced massage techniques which will enable you to be more confident and specific in your treatments. This gives the potential to expand your client base as you will be able to offer more than just a relaxing massage. You will be able to treat clients with muscular pain and tenderness and lack of flexibility with more confidence.



Participants will have a good understanding of:

  • Adopting correct working posture for deep tissue work and hands free massage techniques

  • Observing client posture

  • How to develop their palpation skills- how and what to feel

  • How to perform a massage routine incorporating advanced massage techniques.

What conditions, is deep tissue massage used for?

  • Chronic pain

  • Limited mobility

  • Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury)

  • Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Postural problems

  • Osteoarthritis pain

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Muscle tension or spasm


Learn how to improve your techniques


Careful examination of soft tissue to identify areas of possible damage is obviously very important for the therapist. Just prodding your finger into a tender spot does not give you much information, other than that it is probably tender! We’ll look at how to improve your palpation skills so that you may more easily identify changes in texture, tension or damage in soft tissue, therefore you will have a better idea of how to treat the area.

Trigger points

Trigger points are highly irritable and localised areas within muscle fibres. These areas can vary from the size of a pea, to a large lump. They are often tender and painful to touch and will frequently cause referred pain and discomfort. Trigger points are tender points in the muscle fascia; these can be difficult to locate. The rationale behind using trigger points therapy is that it creates localised ischemia (lack or reduction of oxygen to the muscle tissue) which starve the trigger point of oxygen and nutrients needed to sustain contraction.

Neuro-muscular techniques (NMT)

NMT can be employed to alleviate these areas and so reduce knots and adhesions. NMT is an extension of deep friction & pressure techniques; it is applied with thumbs, fingers, fists or elbows, and is a diagnostic palpatory tool designed to help assess and deal with chronic pain.

Hands Free Massage

Hands Free Massage techniques are a blend of eastern and western styles, ideal for all massage therapists and body-workers, whether recently qualified or experienced. This course will teach you correct body position and working posture helping to maximize the effectiveness of your massage whilst minimizing injuries. Sadly we often see therapists having to give up work due to burn out, poor posture, backache and repetitive strain injuries. As therapists, we need to look after ourselves as well as offering wonderful therapies to our clients; after all our bodies are our tools of the trade.

What do therapists who have trained in this course use it for?  Once you have attended my Advanced and Deep Tissue Massage Course, you will be able to use these techniques to adapt to your client’s individual needs therefore treating a variety of complaints. Many people suffer pain and discomfort resulting from bad posture, injuries like whiplash or too many hours driving or sitting at a desk. Therapists love this course as it offers the skills and techniques including postural observation and analysis and relevant aftercare advice to assist their clients with these neck, shoulder and back issues.
