Massage Foundation Course

The Massage Foundation Course will teach you to apply all the basic massage techniques safely and effectively to all the main areas of the body. It is an excellent introduction to the basic concepts of massage including posture, towel management, positioning, hygiene and hand techniques. By working in pairs, giving and receiving a treatment in each session, you will learn the correct techniques to use for each part of the body and at the end of four days you will be able to perform a full-body massage.


Course Details

During this practical massage therapy course you will learn the following:

  • Palpatory techniques
  • 6 classical massage movements
  • Connecting and completing strokes
  • A full body massage routine using oils
  • Physiological & psychological effects of massage
  • Contra-indications (restrictions and cautions) to massage
  • Working with an awareness of pacing, fluidity, continuity and rhythm
  • Sensitivity, adaptability and creativity in applying techniques
  • Towel management and supports

This is not a professional qualification but it is offers the foundation skills necessary for entry onto the Aromatherapy course and on its own it enables you to treat friends and family on a recreational level.
