massage_05_Diploma-in-Remedial-MassageNationally Recognised Training

The Diploma of Remedial Massage is designed to enable the student to perform individual treatments for specific conditions.  It encompasses Western philosophies coupled with Oriental & Eastern principles (relating to meridians and pressure points), manual lymphatic drainage, and other approaches. Particular attention is paid to the lymphatic and circulatory systems.

Students will be taught how to combine specialised techniques and apply rhythmic pressure over areas which relieve stress, muscular and nervous tension, improve circulation and assist in promoting harmony and balance within the body, mind and spirit of your clients.

Benefits of Remedial Massage

The most obvious benefits are the anatomical and physiological changes, but which may also impact on other elements including the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of a client’s state. We’re not just our physical body and consequently massage therapy on the physical body inevitably influences these other aspects of our self. Increased vitality, calmness, a sense of general wellbeing, balance – these are some of the many “non-physical benefits of massage therapy.
