Deep Tissue Massage Diploma








You must hold the following level of qualification before undertaking this course:
Level 3 Massage Diploma (eg ITEC, VTCT or equivalent)
Qualification attained at the end of this course: Accredited Diploma
Course duration: ONE day

Deep Tissue Massage Diploma enables qualifed massage therapists (especially, but not only, those who are newly qualified) to further their skills and become more confident in their routines.  In addition, they will be able to offer another popular form of treatment.

Participants will learn new techniques to apply to common conditions presented by clients, such as adhesions and muscle tightness.  In the first instance, participants will learn to observe clients' posture and acquire palpating skills which enable them to identify changes in texture or tension in the muscle tissue and to identify tissue damage.

Participants will acquire:

  • A good understanding of how to observe posture
  • A good understanding of palpation
  • The ability to apply "tools" such as the arm, fist and palm appropriately
  • An awareness of their own posture at all times during treatments
  • A full deep tissue massage routine
