    In praise of the Introductory Weekend:

    How lovely is that? I think my search for a massage training is over.
    Last weekend I attended the Introductory Massage Course at SCMT. I was full of excitement and some trepidation as to what to expect. There really was no need to worry because the teachers were so warm and inviting that I was immediately at ease and the other attendees were lovely too.
    The tutors made learning fun and easy. They are obviously experts in their field and the instructions and guidance are thorough but unhurried giving time for consolidation,
    We learned three basic massages over the weekend and what amazed me was the uplifting feeling I received on giving the treatment. It was a total revelation to me and so lovely.
    I am looking forward to starting the diploma course and actually wish it was sooner!
