About this Deep Tissue Massage Course ...

Deep Tissue Massage involves the application of exact techniques and pressures to make changes to specific tissue layers of the body.  It is a versatile form of treatment providing a means of delivering a more effective form of therapy.

 

The unique Deep Tissue Massage course taught at the school has become famous for its specific attention to practitioner posture, application and technique. The course introduces the practitioner to the theory and practice of Deep Tissue Massage techniques which develop on from foundation diploma courses in massage and/or sports injuries as well as lending its way to "HANDS FREE MASSAGE".

The course is intended to give the practitioner a wider understanding in the therapeutic treatment of patients as well as adding to the arsenal of tools which are available for "SAVING HANDS" during a session.

Deep Tissue Massage techniques can be used in conjunction with many other therapies and the course will explore the many other disciplines in which this can be incorporated.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage involves the application of specific light techniques which assist in the movement of lymph, thereby assisting in the decongestion of the lymphatic and circulatory systems.

The  Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage course taught at the London School of Massage provides training in the theory and practice of this gentle but highly effective form of massage and develops on from diploma courses in massage and/or sports massage.

The course is intended to give practitioners a wider understanding in the therapeutic treatment of patients where the immune system has been compromised as well as adding to the arsenal of tools which are available for carrying out a Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage treatment, excluding lymphodema.
