Onsite seated acupressure massage
A 'must-have' certificate for any massage therapist. It is a skill that is portable, flexible, convenient, and, most importantly, in demand!
This course is developed by Lucy Trend, who ran the drop-in Shiatsu massage service within Borders Books for 12 years, and has given thousands of on-site treatments. The course thoroughly meets and goes beyond national standards. Over the two days, you learn techniques that can be combined to create three, set routines: 10 minutes, 20 minutes, and 30 minutes, and a 'hands-free' routine for therapists with wrist or thumb problems. The course includes many useful bites of Lucy’s in-depth knowledge of Acupoint and shiatsu meridian location and function. Plus you will learn a host of practical and flexible Thai massage and Japanese Shiatsu techniques to incorporate into treatments and equip you to work with skill and confidence. Suitable for all levels of experience from beginner to professional massage therapist.
10% discount if you bring your own onsite massage chair. 10% discount if you bring a friend. Repeaters welcome, 50% off cost if bringing their own chair please enquire for booking code.
Additional £50 assessment fee if you require certification.
Suitable for all levels of experience from beginner onwards. To receive the certificate, you should have an existing massage or bodywork certificate (or equivalent qualification which must cover anatomy and physiology up to or over Level 3). If you don’t have this qualification you would be able to practise safely on family and friends. Or if you wish to become professional without prior massage certificate then further study, plus an online training in anatomy and health and safety are required. Please enquire.
