The massage course for beginners teaches you how to give a relaxing massage for the entire body. You will learn various classical hands-on massage techniques which will relax the recipient both physically as well as mentally. You will be able to give a varied total body massage as many different hands-on techniques will be taught.

Evening or weekend course?
The massage course for beginners is given in two different formats. You can either choose for the evening course which includes five lessons of three hours. The benefit of this format is that you will have time to practice in between the lessons privately.
Or you can choose for a weekend course, which will be starting both days at 10:00 and finishes at 17:00 including a lunch break. This course will either be given in one weekend or divided over two Saturdays or Sundays alternately. The benefit of this format is that you will learn the course material in a short time span.
Each course will have a minimum of six and maximum of fourteen participants. To insure ample support each course will be taught by one trainer and one or more assistants. You can register by yourself or together with someone. When you register with someone you will both have the opportunity for massage.
When you are interested to learn more hands-on techniques after this course you can attend an advanced course (estimated from second half of 2019). This will allow you to diversify the massage you give.
