What do you do when your clients want deeper massage work than you feel confident and competent to give? This advanced massage techniques workshop will provide you with the necessary tools to develop your deep tissue massage skills.

Advanced deep tissue massage training course aims to help you develop advanced massage techniques which will enable you to be more confident and specific in your treatments. This will open up your client base by enabling you to offer more than a relaxation massage, and you will be able to treat clients with muscular tenderness and lack of flexibility with more confidence.

You will also be shown how varying your client’s positioning on the couch will allow you to access certain muscle groups better, making your treatments even more effective.

During the course we will cover the following topics:

  •  What is deep tissue/advanced body massage,
  •  The purpose of deep tissue /advanced body massage,
  •  Trigger points and muscular knots,
  •  Neuromuscular technique (N.M.T.),
  •  Muscle stretching techniques (MST),
  •  Muscle energising techniques (MET),
  •  Examples of stretch and release,
  •  Contraindications to body massage,
  •  Massage movements,
  •  Anatomy and physiology revision,
  •  Deep tissue routine.
