NOW ALSO AVAILABLE ONLINE – Please click here to view my online video course.

CMA approved and certified functional /additional needs Massage For Special/Additional Needs Course with author,multi- award winning therapist, educator, passionate advocate/public speaker and highly experienced teacher.

Face to face courses are based in Somerset in my beautiful Therapy and Training Centre overlooking the sea and the moors… it feels like a whole world away. It feels as much as a retreat as well as a course !

This refined and specialised massage focuses on the head, face, shoulders,upper arms, neck and back.

I am very proud to share that I now regularly receive fully and part funded placements for teachers and other staff / professionals from both large mainstream schools as well as specialist schools, autism and ADHD charities all over the UK and into Europe, children’s charities such as Brainwave and other large organisations such as MIND. I have also trained NHS physiotherapists, psychotherapists and nurses. Please email me if you would like to know more.

I am available by prior arrangement to travel to offer this training, including outside of the UK. Travel and accommodation must be covered please. Email me for further details and costs.

Workshops/inset day trainings in schools are also available.

Based on my book “Indian Head Massage For Special Needs”, this Level One course shares beautiful, gentle, nurturing and deeply beneficial massage techniques to reduce anxiety, ease, alleviate and even overcome  issues and challenges and to help everyone relax and bloom, not just those with different or special  abilities. Scientific information and proven research, including case studies are all shared constantly throughout the two days  as we learn together in this very visual, practical course. The researched proof and knowledge are on scientific, physiological, neuropsychological, physical and emotional mental levels.

Students are also taught how to keep their own case studies.

 

As with all my courses, you can never get rid of me as free ongoing mentoring and advice is available to you whenever you need it, from client advice to help with approaching a school, charity or organisaton. There is no time limit to this mentoring and I keep in regular touch as I develop new techniques to add to this continually growing work.

 

It has been scientifically proven since the 1950’s that nurturing touch not only noticeably improves physical health but encourages bigger brains and increases social skills. Within humans emotional intelligence is also stimulated as we have direct areas of the brain that are associated with emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is key to learning and productivity, benefiting not simply the child but their families and the classroom.

£250 including lunch and all refreshments. A beautiful two days as a stand-alone foundation course for those with no previous experience or as a CPD/Specialist development course for those who have previous experience; two days where everyone leaves with far more than they ever bargained for. This course is fully insurable .

Recorded links to both days of the course as well as extra diagrams, research and additional information will be sent to ALL participants along with your certificates.

A copy of my book Indian Head Massage For special Needs is essential to participate in this training as well as a “body”!

 

Once you have trained with me on this course, you can take part in future dates for this course as a refresher/ongoing CPD training for just £80 for both days including an enormous lunch and all refreshments to refresh and add to your skills as this therapy is constantly evolving and growing .

If you would simply like a single refresher day for £50 to practise and develop your knowledge and techniques, this can also be arranged.

*All refresher/practise days are CPD certified.

Recorded links to both days of the course as well as extra diagrams, research and additional information will be sent to ALL participants along with your certificates.
