About this Event

Is a career in massage therapy something you are wanting to begin? Do you want to add to your therapy skills you may already have? Or maybe just want to learn a few basic techniques to gain an insight to massage therapy. Well this is the course for you!

Massage therapy is a popular manual treatment method that can be applied within various practices and industries. Whether this is sports, rehabilitation or beauty, massage therapy is often one of the most common and beneficial soft tissue treatments used. Massage therapy involves a range of different techniques such as effleurage and petrissage that are used in combination to provide various different effects through manipulation of the soft tissues. The most common effects of massage therapy include relaxation, reduced stress, reduced pain and increased range of movement. The pressure used throughout a massage can also vary depending on the purpose of the massage and the desired outcome. For example, massage therapy within a spa environment would typically involve the use of lighter pressures to encourage total relaxation of the body. Whereas massage therapy in a sporting environment would use deeper, more intense pressures to help improve recovery and break down muscle tightness.

Massage.physio.co.uk are running a 1-day workshop covering the basics of massage therapy. There are no specific requirements needed to attend this workshop, just an interest in massage will do! The workshop will cover the basic techniques used within a massage and different occasions where massage therapy can be useful. Another important aspect of the workshop will be when not to perform massage therapy to ensure treatment is always carried out safely and effectively.

We have a highly experienced and professional sports massage therapist running the workshop. Our sports massage therapists will try to make the day as practical as possible, however, the workshop will start with a bit of background information regarding massage therapy. This will include where it came from, how it developed and any other relevant history. From there, the therapists will start to introduce different massage techniques for you to practice on each other. The therapists will always be around to give a helping hand if you are ever unsure about a technique and/or how to perform it. The benefits and main uses of the techniques will also be explained throughout to ensure you know when and why you should perform these.

This course will not provide you with a qualification but is essential to complete prior to completing higher levels in massage therapy.

Massage.physio.co.uk also provides a Level 3 Sports Massage Diploma course, therefore, this workshop will be perfect preparation for you before attending an advanced course.

The workshop will be held on Saturday 7th December at our Liverpool City Centre Clinic on Rodney Street and will start at 10.00 and finish at 15.00.

All tickets purchased for this course will be non-refundable.
