    Focus on Feet

    Sun 28 Jul 2019, 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
    Book here

    A day totoe weave close up freshen up on feet.

    So you probably covered foot massage in your course and your clients love it…you might start with feet or end and you might visit them during a massage… but do you ever feel that feet are forgotton? that feet are foolish? or that feet are foreign?

    We are going to spend the whole day getting fascinated by feet. We’ll look at different ways to massage the feet but we’ll go further than foot massage. We’ll look at the whole session, how to set it up as well as the massage itself. We’ll also consider bodymind connections and feet in everyday language.

    At the end of the day you’ll have some new tools in your tool box and be able to give a 60 minute foot massage that becomes a favourite with your clients!

    This course is for qualified massage practitioners. You may also attend as a massage student as this day is a good way to extend your knowledge as well as be inspired by qualified therapists.

    Praise for Focus on Feet

    Thanks again for a good day focusing on feet. I enjoyed it and feel fresh with inspiration. Thanks for your creativity and effort it was appreciated very much. Susan

     The day was really well structured and not only did I learn some really useful new techniques and approaches to use in my practice but felt energised and refreshed by spending the day connecting with other massage therapists. Thank-you! Jo

    Manual Lymphatic Drainage (Dr Vodder Method) Intensive (Basic + Therapy 1)

    Mon 12 Aug 2019 - Fri 23 Aug 2019,
    Book here

    NB: This course is in two phases. DATES: AUGUST 12th -16th AND 19th – 23rd August 2019

    TUTOR – DEBORAH BERRY

    Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle, yet powerful technique which speeds up the lymphatic system and helps with the removal of waste products from the system by decongesting the tissues. By doing this, it is beneficial for a range of conditions (see prospectus). For example, you will be able to provide pain relief in acute cases, as it helps with the reduction of swelling and bruises (also directly after surgery), and get a different handle on difficult to treat chronic conditions. It is great for injury treatment, headaches and migraines, frozen shoulders etc. It saves the practitioners hands and is physically less demanding than many other forms of therapy, and can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other therapies.

    Training is the most substantial and in-depth training in lymphatic drainage up to Therapy 1 practitioner level in the UK and leads to an internationally recognised qualification.

    The prerequisite for working with members of the public is the successful completion of Basic and Therapy 1. In August 19, these will be taught as an Intensive Basic and Therapy 1 course in quick succession. The format will be 5 days on, 2 days off and 5 days on; the standard is high as one expects from Dr Vodder Academy International – we recommend to stay on-site during the two off days to revise the theory and practice the practical.
    Please note that after successful completion of the Intensive course, you will be able to work on people with an intact lymphatic system. In order to work with people who have a damaged or insufficient lymphatic system resulting in lymphoedema and related conditions, you will also have to complete further training (what’s called Therapy 2 and 3) which, if successful, results in a qualification in decongestive lymphatic therapy (DLT); including bandaging and measuring for and selecting appropriate compression garments.

    Deborah Berry has a wonderful, clear way of explaining the complicated lymphatic system and is an excellent teacher also for the practical aspects.

    Please note that the Early Bird for this course runs out on 30th June.
