As a commitment to your learning it’s highly recommended attending all workshops on a topic; book Jan, Feb and March now and get a 10% discount (£108).

Or pay as you go £40 per session.

Before Christmas we completed our Pelvis and Lower Back explorations, now we’re switching focus to the Head, Neck and Face.

Using the fabulous book ‘The Trail Guide’, we’ll tour the bony landscapes of the cranium, cervical spine and face, and muscle our way from head and neck movers and stabilisers through to the muscles of facial expression.

We’ll meet some amazing names, from zygomatic arch to submandibular fossa, from pterygoid to procerus and have no doubt, getting to know the details will change the way you massage forever!

We’re looking to learn, gain confidence and indulge some anatomical geekery.

Please don’t feel you need to know it all before you come along because it’s all in The Guide.

These sessions exist to help transfer what’s in the book into your head, hands and heart.

The benefits are cumulative, so attending all sessions is best.

Attending some is exponentially better than attending none, so do what you can.

As a former lead tutor on massage trainings, I know what’s involved. And as a former student myself, I’ve been in your shoes. With this insight and experience, I developed these sessions to make the course work and the lead up to the exams easier, more enjoyable and more productive.

Working in a light-hearted, supportive environment, each session has two parts – the first we’re actively engaged in simple, helpful activities, and the second we’re enjoying a relaxing trance / hypnosis experience where we bring the subconscious mind on board and up to date with the positive changes and attitudes we are cultivating.

These sessions are always enjoyed, because they help you to feel great and really make a difference to your mindset.

The massage course subject matter / exam content is not covered, as you already have brilliant tutors for that.
