I am now offering unaccredited classes for those who wish to learn to treat just family and friends or those who are interested in learning but don’t want to rush into a full credited course and find it is too much for them to take on.
The basic body massage will include back, back of legs, front of legs, hands and arms. You will learn the basic movements of effleurage, pettrissage and tapotement. At the end of the course you will be able to carry out a basic body massage treatment on family and friends but will not be able to get insured to treat the public. It will build a good foundation to move onto a full course should you wish to do this.
Indian head massage will involve treatment of the arms, back, neck shoulders and head. Again you will learn the rudimentary movements required to carry out a complete treatment on both family and friends. Insurance will not be gained to practise on paying members of the public but it will give you a good working knowledge to move onto a full course should you wish too.
Aromatherapy, this is my all time favourite therapy. Within this course you will cover not only the basic techniques with which to carry out a full body massage on family and friends but also about 10 aromatherapy oils you can use safely when diluted with carrier oils on yourself and around the home. Aromatherapy has so many uses and I hope that you come away from this course fueled with knowledge to go forward onto a credited course to allow you to learn more on this fascinating subject. There are so many oils out there aside from Lavender, which seems to be the most popular and widely used.
Each course will run for 5 weeks, at the moment Saturday afternoons from 3 pm to 5 pm. In the future these course will also be offered in the evenings, from 7 pm to 9 pm, watch this space!
You will receive course notes and a little homework each week to ensure you understand what you are learning. You will also need to practice the routine learnt each week, on willing clients!
At the end of the course you will receive a certificate of completion of the course.
Course will be £100 for the 5 weeks duration, no extra charges will be incurred. Couches are supplied, you may wish to use your own towels.
A maximum of 4 people only per class making this a more informal setting to learn a new skill.
I look forward to teaching you, what could be, the start of a new journey for you.
