This short Niseko Chiropractic course will give you the practical info you need to give a high-quality massage to friend or partner.
The massage 6-hour workshop can be attempted to different times and formats but we suggest the course will run over 2 evenings with 3.5 hours per session. No previous massage or anatomy knowledge is needed but you will get more out of the experience is you have had some previous related training.
The focus will be on concepts and applying specific techniques rather than running through a set routine. You will have the chance to work on various body types and there will be plenty of time to allow for practice and refinement of techniques in the sessions.
The workshop will be facilitated by Brent Verco from Niseko Chiropractic who has a 12-year background in teaching remedial massage in Australia as well as anatomy at a university level.
Massage tables will be provided but please bring your own sheets and pillows.
