Course Massage: Body Massage - Beginners

This is a very ‘hands-on’ course – the price is just £55 per couple, please note that you need to come with a friend or relative so that you both have someone to practise on! You will learn a routine to enable you to give a back massage. This course will focus on the practical application rather than theory although you will learn a little about the history of back massage and massage techniques.

Required Skills None required. You need an interest in body massage and how it can be used to help alleviate aches and pains, along with a general interest in how massage can help improve posture and help relax tense muscles. There are some medical conditions that may preclude treatment or require a consultation with your GP. These may include recent head/neck injury or surgery; heart disorders or contagious skin disorders. If you are in any doubt please consult your GP and obtain a referral letter before enrolling on the course.
Teaching Method Body Massage is a very ‘hands on’ course, so all practical skills taught. The tutor will provide short demonstrations and you will replicate what you see.
Outcomes You will have gained an insight into the application of body massage.
Materials required You will need to bring one large towel/bath sheet and two hand towels. Some wet wipes and something to lie on, such as a yoga/gym mat, sleeping bag or a beach towel would be useful. A handout of the routine will be given. There is nothing else that you will need to buy, as oils will be provided.
Homework required Although there is no formal work to do at home, practice of the routine after the first week will help.
Assessment At the start of the course you will be given your own individual learning plan. Your tutor will record your entry level and together you will track your progress and achievements.
Progression to We will support learners to make informed choices about their next steps by providing appropriate individual and/or group information, advice, and/or guidance tailored to need and desired outcomes. Indian Head Massage courses and Reflexology are also available at this centre.
