The focus of this advanced massage training course is to help you develop your practice by being able to widen your client base. The course looks at a wide range of medical conditions.

We study; the pathophysiology of the conditions, we examine in detail the contraindications for that particular condition so that you know how to safely massage and how to adapt your massage to meet the needs of the client with that individual conditions. We then work through effective massage protocols for the conditions so that you know your treatments will be both safe and effective.
