Thai Foot Massage

Duration: 10 hours                            

Cost: £165 (including a Thai massage stick)

Traditional Thai Foot Massage is a very popular modality, offering as it does the experience of a different massage from the usual Swedish or other Western style. A vigorous yet relaxing massage of the feet and legs, it incorporates the use of a traditional Thai massage stick (included in the cost) to provide reflexology style acupressure points work and to stimulate the reflexes on the feet. It is a great therapy for clients who are on their feet a lot, or anyone with stiff and aching leg muscles.

One day courses are taught with a maximum of 2 students. Times can be a little flexible but normally we run from 9.30am to 5.30pm (at the latest). I am happy to teach one to one but the student may occasionally be asked to bring a model with them.

Please note that the prices given are for group courses: unlike some schools, I do not charge extra for 1-1 tuition.

All courses are fully certified and insurable. Students are advised to check with their own insurer that they will provide cover for these courses BEFORE booking: we cannot accept responsibility or issue refunds in the event of insurance being refused.
