Massage has been used for centuries to heal, invigorate and relax the mind and body, reaching all the major organs as well as helping the muscles, bones and soft tissue to stay healthy.The massage principle is simple: touch means stimulation. This means that wherever touch is used, the body reacts. Because of the changing landscape of the skin and the body parts it protects, differing levels of touch on the body elicit a range of responses; a soft stroke on the forearm may induce relaxation, but a deeper touch might help the blood vessels in the lower arm take blood back to the heart or stimulate and deepen blood flow to painful muscles.
You will learn how to create the right atmosphere for massage and how to conduct a session, to give the client a positive experience. This includes which oils to use for massage and how choosing specific oils can have positive effects on certain conditions of the client’s body and mind.It then moves onto the practice of the subject; massage techniques and how to deploy them to various parts of the body, and how each treatment is beneficial. The course also takes you through specific massage applications, such as massage for sports and abdominal massage, as well as the benefits, and how to perform, hydrotherapy.The course finishes off with some useful pointers and considerations for those looking to set up their own business.
