Family and Friends Massage Workshop

Massage is a wonderful way to reduce aches, pains and problems due to muscle tension, and tension resulting from everyday stresses. There are some wonderful techniques you can apply to help reduce the muscular aches, pains, and stress your family and friends may suffer from.

The workshop is a fun, enjoyable and a relaxing way to spend time with family or friends and learn a new skill that can be yours to take away.

It is designed to give you useful massage techniques to help:

  • Reduce stress and tension
  • Aches and pains from all that exercise, or sitting at a desk
  • Relieve the tension your children feel when revising for exams and after exercise
  • Posture imbalances causing aches and pains.

You’ll learn

  • How to massage without causing pain or pressing too hard
  • How to avoid making your own hands ache when giving a massage
  • Techniques that will be very effective
  • The benefits of massage
  • When not to use massage
  • General massage techniques on legs and feet, arms and hands, back, shoulders.

You’ll practice techniques to massage your family or friends after they’ve played sport and spent time in the garden, for example; or if they just need to relax and forget about the day. This will include areas on the back, neck and shoulders, legs, feet, arms and hands.

"I came to Janet with a long term issue with my ankles. They would hurt and stiffen after exercise or any amount of walking. After three or four sessions of fascial release and massage, the symptoms were much improved. There is now no pain when I walk or exercise."
