    The workshop was really useful. We’ve already put some techniques into practice and are working on expanding that. We now feel we have the confidence to keep trying and developing our skills.

Benefits of massage

  • Relaxes the body and mind
  • Reduces lower back pain and other bodily aches
  • Helps promote digestion
  • Increases the range of motion in joints
  • Calms aggressive behaviour
  • Decreases depression and helps to promote a healthy mind
  • Helps your immunity by increasing white blood cell counts
  • Improves recovery from exercise
  • Alleviates age-related disorders, sleep disorders, and many more emotional and physical problems.

But having a massage on a regular basis is not always practical or affordable.  We’ve heard the story a thousand times; “my partner won’t massage me”, or “s/he stops after five minutes”.

During your private massage workshop you will learn

  • How to massage safely and confidently, delivering a relaxing and enjoyable massage.
  • How to massage without your hands aching.
  • Basic effleurage techniques.
  • Specific techniques such as percussion, deep friction, kneading and when best to implement them.
  • Learn the particular areas of tension that your partner suffers from and how to relieve them.
  • Contraindications to massage (when not to do it).

    We really enjoyed the holistic massage workshop - the whole experience was very informative, we learnt about basic anatomy of the upper back in order to understand why different areas require different techniques. Different pressure levels and using different parts of the hands, knuckles, elbows and how important it is to communicate during the massage so it can be comfortable for the person receiving the massage. We are using the massage techniques at least once a week - it has been a really great to help relax before bedtime and/or after a long day at work. We will definitely be returning to try the Indian head massage or deep tissue sports massage workshops.

What will happen during the mcouples workshop massageassage workshop?

The best way to learn is by doing, and so following a thorough introduction and outline you will take it in turns to massage each other.  This means that for approximately thirty minutes of the workshop you each will be having a relaxing massage.

Your lesson will involve actively performing a massage as your instructor guides and coaches you to perfect the techniques. Your massage will follow a standard massage sequence and you and your partner will be taught to constructively feedback so you can both receive the most effective massage possible.

Can I really learn to give an effective massage in 2 hours?

Absolutely, massage is not rocket science. There are a few simple techniques to practice and after that you will be able to confidently deliver a relaxing massage to your partner.

This course does not qualify you to deliver massage and charge for it.

Most massage therapists learn to massage in exactly the same manner that you will, but what then separates them is practice.  By regularly practicing your massage techniques you will begin to discover that you can feel what is happening under the surface of the skin.

Feedback from your partner is what helps to make you increasingly confident and competent.

    Just wanted to say we had a great time today at the 2hr Holistic Workshop with Jenny. We have some things we can take away and use in future. We were really pleased with the whole experience.

Remedial or Sports Massage workshop

The Price for this Workshop is £120 for 2hrs 30mins with Jayne
This price includes you being able to video the individualised routine that we create for you
This workshop takes the same structure as above but is far more individualised.  During this session the massage therapist will help you to discover the best way to massage specific areas of tension you might have.

For example you may spend long hours at a desk and suffer from tight shoulders and neck.  Stopping work is not an option and regular massage can be costly and time consuming.  We can help your partner learn to work out your specific stresses and help make your neck pain a thing of the past.

During the Sports Massage session you will learn:

  • Deep Tissue massage
  • Deep friction
  • Trigger pointing
  • Effective use of thumbs, knuckles and elbows.

Indian Head/Chair Massage Workshop

The Price for this Workshop is £120 for 2hrs 30mins with Jayne
This workshop takes the same structure as the Relaxation Massage Workshop above, but focuses on the upper back, neck, arms, shoulders, head and face. This is a seated massage and is ideal for those looking for a relaxing treatment. For more information about Indian Head Massage, please see our Individual treatments page.

Thai Foot Workshop

This workshop also takes the same structure as the Relaxation Massage Workshop, but focuses on the feet and lower leg. For more information about Thai Foot Massage, please see our Individual treatments page.

    Excellent workshop. Jenny was a great teacher and the 2hr Holistic workshop was pitched at just the right level for us having learnt nothing about giving massages previously. Afterwards we felt relaxed. The workshop was very useful. It was great to learn techniques to give a proper massage.
