Taught in 2 x 2-Day CThA-accredited Post Graduate Workshops (10 CPD Points x 2)

Level 1: Body-dynamic working and introduction of Hand Free Massage ‘tools’
The first course is an intensive practical weekend, concentrating on body positioning and movement, with a broad range of strokes which will allow you to flow smoothly and work deeply into the large muscle groups not only with ease and comfort but without the fear of injury. We focus predominantly on body-dynamic massage techniques using the forearm and ‘ulna edge’ but also include reinforced Swedish Massage techniques, knuckles, and fist work. A very hard-working but extremely satisfying two days.

Advanced: Fine-tuning your Hands Free Massage techniques

Available for those who have already completed the Level 1 Hands Free Massage Course, or who feel confident with basic hands free techniques, and wish to expand and develop their range of techniques. Once again, this will be an intensive practical to maximise the number of techniques shown, and allow for time fine-tuning hands free ‘tools’ such as forearm, elbow, knuckles, and fist work. We book this course on demand.

I have recently completed Part One of the Hands Free Massage Training with Onie at KnotStressed Therapies. What a wonderful, informative and useful course! Onie is an excellent teacher, explaining everything so well and allowing us to learn so much in a relaxed and encouraging environment. The course emphasis is very practical, allowing us to learn a wide range of new techniques over the course of a weekend. Fabulous to have learned new techniques to bring to treatments which protect the therapist’s body well. Highly recommended.
