Deep tissue massage focuses on the different layers of tissue (muscle, tendons and fascia), working to relax, lengthen, and release strain patterns within them so that the body’s posture can realign itself. Physical and emotional traumas can tighten and stiffen these tissues. When this happens, the body moves out of a state of natural alignment and loses its flexibility and gravitational balance.
Working deeply does not necessarily mean applying lots of pressure. The techniques used in deep tissue massage are also applied more slowly, so as to avoid causing the recipient discomfort when working deeply into the muscle and connective tissue, as well as allowing the nervous system to integrate the work.
After completion of this class you will be asked to provide 10 case studies. You will only be awarded your certification after you have submitted these case studies and feedback has been given.
As with all of our physical and energy therapies, once you have completed the home study part of the class, before you begin your case studies, you are welcome to book a 'training day' in with us which will be held in Glastonbury, Somerset. The cost of this face-to-face training is free of charge and this is not a pre-requisite of completing the course. If you'd like further information on our training days or wish to book one with us, please do not hesitate to Contact Us.
