This course teaches you to massage with tools and parts of the body other than the hands. It extends the sensations, texture, and pressure of touch to your partner or client from the classic hands-on massage. A highly practical experience for therapists on how to massage without putting excess strain on wrists or inflaming thumbs from normal massage techniques. The course does not include examination in anatomy and physiology, which is required for professional insurance to practice.

Learning to massage without using hands comes from the experience and knowledge of a fully qualified massage and holistic therapist, Steve, who has PTLLS Level 4 teaching qualification. You will learn effective and pleasurable massage techniques to suit both relaxing and deeper massages.

You would benefit having Relaxing Full Body Massage Training beforehand. Students of my professionally accredited Body Massage training course can use this customised training to add practical hours of tutored experience. Course lengths are flexible to allow for students' different experiences and goals.

Great style of teaching Steve, and just the basic mix of anatomy and theory to maximise time doing the real thing.       Phil
