Holistic (Swedish) Massage for Beginners 1-Day Course

This 1-day holistic (Swedish) massage course for beginners is a great introduction to massage and is suitable for both complete beginners and professionals who would like to refresh their skills or learn new techniques.

For beginners it is a wonderful way to learn basic massage techniques and a simple routine. It is ideal for people who have considered becoming a massage therapist, but without the commitment of a fully accredited qualification. This course will give you practical experience and basic knowledge as a 'taster' whether an accredited course is for you. Or it can be used to treat family and friends.

Upon completion of this course you will be able to carry out a massage on family and friends and will be awarded a certificate of attendance. It will give you practical experience if you would like to take massage further and go on to study Swedish or Holistic full body massage.

Holistic (also known as Swedish) Massage involves the manipulation of the body's soft tissue (i.e. the skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments) using the hands in a gentle, flowing massage technique that uses varying degrees of pressure and stretching movements. It is most commonly used for relaxation, improving well-being and lymphatic drainage.

"I would highly recommend Sarah as a teacher and I would hugely recommend her courses. My introductory massage course was both educational and fun. I was made to feel very comfortable and welcome on my one day course. Sarah clearly enjoys working with her students. Sarah is a very well mannered, professional, patient and caring teacher. She has a kind and patient personality. I can tell that both consideration and attention to detail is put into her class structures. Her class manuals are well thought out and structured. I found the manual easy to understand. Presentation of class manual was professionally written, clear, and easy to read. Thanks for a great course and an enjoyable experience." Kimberley Edwards
