Massage - The Basics

Like to be able to give massages to friends and family with a bit more knowledge and confidence? Join this introduction to the basics of massage, held over two sessions - you must enrol with a partner.


Enrol with a friend or family member (must be over 16 years old) and work on each other (personal safety assured) and learn a range of basic techniques. The course is held over two Saturday mornings so you can have time to practise between sessions. Please note that this is not a professional training. Men and women both welcome.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to:
• Perform a range of basic massage strokes on the back, legs, arms, hands and feet
• Demonstrate protocols for modesty and safety
• Know when to refer to a professional

Please check course instructions after you register for what you need to bring along on the day of the course.

Note:  Courses need a minimum number to go ahead so if we don't have enough enrolments a few days before the start date, we have to cancel. We'll let you know by email so please check yours regularly. If you need to cancel your registration, here are our terms and conditions: "What You Need to Know".


You must enrol with another person so you can practise what you're learning on each other - both people need to pay the full course fee.
