As the therapist, you will work on your client's body using long stretch movements and using your body weight to increase manoeuvrability. Best performed using Bioactive organic sourced Pinks Boutique massage oils rich in anti-oxidants, omega fatty acids and vitamins.


The course is £95 plus vat per person.

.......

LONG STOKES - to dispel tension and soothe the client, make them feel relaxed and floaty.


JOINING UPPER AND LOWER BODY- with strokes and moves. Your body to do basic functions such as stand and walk does not use on set of muscles or one limb to create the actions. These moves have been made to make the therapist and client understand that your movement is multiple muscle groups and areas working together, it is perhaps odd that therapists don’t do this more. It is also to create an interest-ing different feel for the client like a 4 hands massage, they don’t quite know where you are or are going, it makes it not obvious like some routines are.


STRETCHING- most of these are taken from Luke’s sports world. They are stretches that you would either perform on your own in the gym or their physios would do for them. Each one has it’s own function and if you want to take this learning further we would suggest a sports massage course of sports text book.


MOVEMENT- all physiotherapists will tell you that you want to keep movement in body, lack of exercise and stretching, a sedentary lifestyle makes you less able to move, stretch, touch your toes etc. We are adding in movement to help with this and to make people realise how powerful stretching every night before bed can be.
