'The massage training is such a beautiful experience to receive and give wonderful massage in a relaxed yet carefully structured way.  The practical training is cleverly split into manageable body parts to allow plenty of hands on training .  Steph is such a fantastic teacher and really helps you to learn the fiddly bits like the towel etiquette so that you can then focus on getting on with the massage without worrying about what to do to cover up the client.  She teaches you luscious techniques to work the muscles more deeply.  She is so experienced and is good at passing this on and reinforcing the learning with relevant anatomy and beautiful techniques to make the massage begin to flow more naturally.     By alternating between receiving and performing massage this helps to reinforce the learning making the relaxation flow.  What a wonderful training with a wonderful lady I would fully recommend this course.'

Lynn Francis

“I really enjoyed the Body Massage training with Steph, she is a great teacher and is clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about what she teaches. I searched for a long time for a massage course that felt right for me, and I am so pleased and grateful to have found this one. I have come away feeling happy and confident in the skills and knowledge that I have learnt.”
