Massage Workshop - Saturday 24th February 1-4pm

Learn How to Massage Your Friends and Family

This is a great workshop for anyone wishing to learn a massage routine to use on their friends and family.

Good introduction to massage for beginners or refresher of existing skills for therapists.

It will include the Back, Shoulders, Neck and Head with clear understanding of the relevant anatomy.

  • Claire Berthier has been intensively practising Therapeutic Massage for the last 12 years and Osteopathy since 2007.
  •  Relevant anatomy will be taught alongside the massage skills.
  • Small group for individual attention.
  • No previous experience required.
  • Ideal if you are thinking of getting into massage as a career but perhaps want to check that it is for you.
  • You do not have to attend with a friend as you can team up with another student.
  • This is a fun workshop yet you will learn a lot!

Gymnastic Strength Training Workshop - London 1st October 2017

Thank you so, so much for a fab session in London today. I so enjoyed it.  The teachers – Wesley, Claire, and Meg – were just wonderful. So supportive and knowledgable, and they had their eyes on everyone, so I felt completely safe. I really had such a great time. I was shattered by the end, but inspired. Can’t wait to sign up for more.
