Learn the basics of deep tissue massage course online!

In these extraordinary times, we are offering some of the elements of our deep tissue massage course, online.

If you are a qualified practitioner and want to keep your hands and head immersed into massage, this is for you!

This course is suitable for:

– massage and bodywork practitioners with AP&P and massage qualification level 3 minimum
– massage practitioners who want to get back to work once the lockdown is eased, with renewed enthusiasm – keep their hands in, keep engaged with massage, revise and expand on techniques
– qualified practitioners who may not have worked for a while and want to ease their way back in with an accessible online course. Time investment for this online course is about 15 hours (10 online sessions plus homework, quizzes and revision for those who choose to do this).

The course will run over 4 weeks. Sessions will be recorded, so if you miss one, you can watch it later.

Learn the basics of Deep Tissue Massage Online in 4 weeks: £49
(plus get £20 off our 3 day in-house practical training, next currently planned 11-13 July 2020)

This online introduction to deep tissue massage is a mixture of discussions, presentations, videos, quizzes and homework tasks and questions covering mainly the theory aspects of deep tissue massage, but also palpation techniques that people can practise during lockdown. A lot of it can be done without a partner to work on. However, for 2 of the 10 sessions, a partner is needed. You can of course use the videos to work with a partner later on as well. Access to the course is given for 6 months, so you can do it in your own time (ie you can take longer or do it faster if you are joining after the start date).

Those who complete the tasks and mark their progress in our online learning environment will be given feedback and a certificate for CPD purposes.

Please note: We will do some practical work, but only to the extend that this is possible online and in accordance with guidelines by our professional association (Massage Training Institute, MTI)

We are very excited about this, because we will be able to do even more practical work on the practical days doing the theory this way!

Theory and fundamentals:
Anatomy of deeper structures, cautions & contraindications
Palpation (work with a partner or on yourself)
Ergonomic bodyuse
Efficient use of “tools” for deep tissue massage

Postural imbalances that benefit from deep tissue massage
Conditions that can be addressed with deep tissue massage
Techniques for release of musculo-skeletal restrictions:
Theory and application (includes myofascial release, trigger point and soft tissue release fundamentals)
