You will work in pairs to give and receive shoulder, neck and head massage/to give and receive treatments
Teaching methods will include demonstration, lecture input, discussion and time to practice what is being taught and for question and answer sessions. Our Complementary Therapy and healing workshop days are not intended as treatments in themselves.
Your tutor will use a variety of teaching methods to accommodate different learning styles and ensure that you achieve your full potential. The course will be taught in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, where there will be opportunities to practise practical skills and ask questions throughout.
