We currently run one and two-day workshops in Postural Assessment Skills and Advanced
Soft Tissue Techniques.
These training courses are suitable for all qualified Massage Therapists and Bodyworkers who have an Anatomy & Physiology qualification and a massage
qualification, ITEC equivalent or above.
Day 1 - Postural Assessment
What are your clients telling you? - Truly understanding who and what you're treating is the foundation of effective therapy.
By using a blend of sound clinical knowledge and skilful assessment work, you will be able to uncover this in the all important initial assessment - way before
your client is uncovered. Could your client's footwear be an indicator of low back pain? Mannerisms, posture, gait - What is your client's body telling you?
Unlock these mysteries and become a dynamic therapist.
Hands off - look, listen, learn
Insight into spinal mechanics
Improved examination skills
This invaluable one-day workshop will revolutionise the way you assess your clients from the moment they walk into your treatment room, enhancing
confidence and rapport.
Day 2 Advanced Soft Tissue Techniques
This training session has a more practical element than the one above, as it provides instantly effective 'hands-on' soft tissue and mobilisation techniques.
The lessons include:
General & physical examination
How to palpate and distinguish anatomical structures
Advanced Soft Tissue and Mobilisation Techniques
Warning signs and when not to treat
Looking after yourself - practitioner posture
Safe and skilful patient handling
As well as developing your own observational and analytical skills, you will also learn the right questions and how to ask them.

"At last, exactly what I had been looking for - the missing link - a systematic approach to diagnosis and treatment.
As a result I have become more confident in my abilities and
effective in my treatments."
"This is a course that's not to be missed if you are a serious massage therapist. Robert teaches in a way that is
conducive to each student. He seems to know what each person's learning needs are, as he uses a student
centred approach to his teaching. As the class numbers are small, you get more hands on experience and time
for each individual to grasp the knowledge and understanding. I was so impressed that I've invited Robert to
our local FHT group meeting to demonstrate to the members. This is
knowledge that should be shared!"
"There was so much interesting and useful information given out over the course, I was only sorry I didn't take
more notes. Getting to grips with the new methods of treatment was the first hurdle to overcome but having
begun to appreciate the importance of this everything started falling into place. Working on clients now is a
completely different experience. I have changed the direction of my work. Treatments feel progressive now
rather than purely passive."
