Remedial Massage Diploma: Student interaction.

The remedial diploma has given me a whole new set of skills and the confidence to use them appropriately with my clients. The teaching as always with the School of Bodywork has been nurturing and inspirational. It has been a great help to have the support of my teachers. The back up from professionals is priceless. Thank-you very much.

Remedial Massage Diploma: Assessment.

Helen Watts

Remedial Massage Diploma: Leg mobilisations.

I am so pleased that I joined the Remedial Massage Diploma.  I felt as though I wanted to step up a level with my practice, to understand the conditions that people were presenting with, in more depth and have a greater understanding of what the causes of the problems are, and how to treat them.  This is exactly what the course provided!  The way in which we were taught showed us how to keep an open mind with the conditions people are presenting with, how to examine different possible causes and treatment options, how to thoroughly assess before, during and after treatments, and how to use advanced techniques to gain even better results.  I am already finding that it makes a great difference to my work with clients.  The course has expanded my knowledge base by about ten fold and made me enjoy giving massage even more, with a greater knowledge base and understanding of the impact my work is having on clients.  The teaching of the course was inspirational as ever with the School of Bodywork.  I cannot recommend this course highly enough for anyone wishing to take their massage practice to the next stage.

The Remedial Massage Diploma is a natural progression from Swedish or Holistic Massage. If you are ready for the next step in your professional development, this is the course for you.
