Deep Tissue Massage



This short course has been acceditated by the FHT and the CTHA

This advanced massage techniques workshop will provide you with the necessary tools to develop your deep tissue massage skills and allow you to work confidently with those clients that want much deeper massage. Suitable for anyone with Swedish massage skills.

You will go away knowing:

  • How to work more safely and effectively  with reinforced fingers and thumbs
  • How to work deeper with forearms and elbows
  • Client positioning: prone, supine and side-lying work to access muscles more effectively
  • How to use your couch for support to make your work easier
  • Ensuring optimum couch height,  body positioning and posture to look after yourself

The day will be mostly practical and focus  on the back, neck, shoulders and gluteal area allowing you to incorporate the new massage techniques into your own massage style. Throughout the day, you will be given 4 individual demonstrations of techniques and have plenty of opportunity between them to practice these techniques in your own time. It’s a fun and active day run in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.



“Excellent and inspirational – [great for] saving my thumbs and posture advice”

What our students say!

“My client said the massage was fantastic and that she couldn’t tell I’d only been doing it for a few weeks - she said it was as if I’d been a practitioner for years! It’s all thanks to the excellent teaching and attention to detail by our supportive teachers. Thank you.”
