For Beginners

For beginners, Swedish Massage is the place to start. You will learn how to apply the right pressure to give a massage that is safe, relaxing and effective. Your course will cover whichever areas interest you: back, neck, head, arms, hands, glutes, legs or feet. If you have a friend or partner who would benefit from regular massage, Matthew or Grant will show you some techniques that you can safely use to help them.

Matthew or Grant will explain relevant anatomy and the science behind massage therapy. They will use a full-size muscle diagram to help explain how the body is structured.

You will be surprised at how much you can learn during focused one-to-one massage training / massage tuition sessions. This is a good starting point if you are considering doing a formal accredited massage course elsewhere in Edinburgh (eg Scottish Massage Schools).

For Qualified therapists

If you already have a Swedish Massage or Sports Massage qualification, Matthew or Grant can teach you new ways of assessing joints. This will identify muscles that are causing pain or restrictions. Furthermore, he can show you techniques to target these muscles with immediate results. Treatment techniques may include deep tissue massage, muscle energy techniques and trigger point therapy.

For Doctors, Consultants, Physios, PTs & Sport Scientists

Hands-on treatments can yield fast and measurable results.  For students and qualified health professionals the benefits of developing your practical treatment skills further will be evident in your clinic. Your patients will notice the difference.

*****  “I would highly recommend Matthew. The session started with an overview of the skeleton and muscle layout. From there Matthew demonstrated massage techniques, always referring back to the skeleton and muscle diagrams. This combination of theory and practice was perfect; covering both the physical benefits and pleasures that massage can bring. Matthew is extremely knowledgeable and experienced and his very friendly, relaxed but professional manner made even a complete beginner like myself leave the session with a good basic knowledge and the confidence to continue practicing.”
