Massage Introduction Course

Posted on Friday 7th September 2018

Introduction Course Weekend Teaching

So, after the sweat, tears, excitement and euphoria for students (2017/8) completing their massage Diploma level 4, we start again!

The massage “Introduction course” begins tomorrow and will see me working with 12 new candidates. This crop are a mixture of both men and women this time. This is a single weekend and samples the basic massage skills which can be used on friends and family. It provides a platform for suitable learners to progress onto the Diploma which starts next month in October.

It will be lovely to meet a new group of people who are looking to embark on the lifechanging massage journey. To be able to go through the course this year and soley concentrate on the students and consolidate my own teaching learning with Kit will be great.
