Releasing The Neck

Would you love to learn some really effective new massage techniques for the neck?

This course will cover firm, advanced massage and mobilising techniques for the neck which will be invaluable new skills for practising Massage Therapists

We will look at ways of releasing accumulated tension in the neck and mobilising it with the client supine. Techniques covered range from gentle stretches to firm massage and a variety of neck mobilisations. We’ll also look at relevant exercises to offer your clients for self-maintenance

Prerequisite: You must have a minimum Level 3 body massage certificate i.e. swedish, holistic, aromatherapy or sports massage - Ideal CPD for therapists qualified in L3 VTCT, ITEC, C&G etc.

The theory session is interactive & incorporates a review of the main muscles of this area to gain a better understanding before the practical session. We will also look at how to mobilise & promote flexibility in the neck

During the practical session we’ll work with the client in a supine position, which enables us to work on most of the neck muscles and to do a large range of mobilising techniques.

The workshop looks at the choice of appropriate techniques for each client. There is an emphasis on good bodyuse for the practitioner, and ‘listening’ with your hands (monitoring and adapting to the client’s responses)

In addition to the course booklet all students will receive access to a video covering the techniques taught by Darien
