In our search for further learner, Garth and I decided to ditch the chain oil for massage oil
this winter and enrolled in a Sports
/ Soft Tissue Massage Level 3 diploma. For 30 weeks, our Tuesday evenings will no longer be spent working from the studio or sweating it out on the turbo, but will instead consist of lotion-soaked hands, scribble-filled notepads and information-stuffed grey matter…
The course, held at Eastleigh College, includes everything from detailed learning and practice of massage techniques (who thought kneading was just for bread making) to the function of the lymphatic system, through to the role of sports massage in injury treatment and prevention.
We’ll continue to post updates of our progress through the course, and will certainly be needing some willing volunteers for “treatments” in the coming weeks so keep an eye out on our social media posts for opportunities to put yourself forward!
