Overview

Put briefly, holistic massage is a type of tissue manipulation that has been in use and developed over thousands of years.

It uses the hands, parts of the body or mechanical means to actually manipulate the softer tissues within the body e.g.: the skin, muscles, ligaments and tendons. It has been used throughout time to promote relaxation, to aid the stimulation and rehabilitation of the entire body.

About Holistic Massage

This Holistic Massage course aims to teach the student all the relevant techniques and tools that can be used in holistic massage to ensure that they are able to treat the entire client, not just the symptom.
