Event description

Description

This 2 day course is designed for massage therapists who want to expand their repertoire/ approaches to massage and bodywork in order to safely work with people with cancer and other complex medical conditions. The weekend explores safe and creative ways of adapting massage as well as spending time addressing questions and concerns you may have around working with complex and vulnerable clients/patients. Come prepared to work with and without oil, on a mat, chair, couch and even the hospital bed. Wear loose comfortable clothing.

All our courses take a 'zero strain' approach to massage.

Facilitators: Gwynneth Campbell, Anita Mehrez, Sarah Wilkins
