This course is open to everyone; you do not need to have any experience. If you are a qualified therapist this will be an excellent treatment to add to your existing qualifications.

” Wow…I didn’t expect much from this course. It was unbelievable! The relaxation sensation throughout the treatment and the results afterwards were unreal…I could hear a pin drop. I slept so well and really enjoyed the pressure point massage. After 15 years as a massage therapist, I didn’t expect to learn much more…how wrong I was!! Enjoyable day and another treatment to add to my clinic” Siobhan, Galway.
