CMA approved and certified functional massage courses with author/therapist/experienced teacher on Exmoor in beautiful training/therapy chalet.

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 and large organisations. I have also trained NHS physiotherapists and nurses. Please email me if you would like to know more. I am available, by prior arrangement, to travel direct to schools or an agreed venue to offer this training, including outside of the UK. Travel and accommodation must be covered please. Email me for further details and costs.

Workshops 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 which are then submitted to myself on a regular basis for monitoring and recording.

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.

Once you have trained with me on this course, you have an open invitation to take part in future course dates, free of charge, to refresh your skills/ receive treatments as I really passionately believe in this work and want it out there.
