Dynamic Therapist

We currently run one and two–day workshops in Advanced Postural Skills, and Advanced Soft Tissue Techniques.

These training courses are suitable for all qualified Massage Therapists and Bodyworkers who have an Anatomy & Physiology qualification and a massage qualification, ITEC equivalent or above.

Day 1 – Postural Assessment

What are your clients telling you? – Truly understanding who and what you’re treating is the foundation of effective therapy.

By using a blend of sound clinical knowledge and skilful assessment work, you will be able to uncover this in the all important initial assessment – way before your client is uncovered.

Could your client’s footwear be an indicator of low back pain? Mannerisms, posture, gait – What is your client’s body telling you? Unlock these mysteries and become a Dynamic Therapist.

  • Hands off – look, listen, learn
  • Insight into spinal mechanics
  • Improved examination skills

This invaluable one–day workshop will revolutionise the way you assess your clients from the moment they walk into your treatment room, enhancing confidence and rapport.

Day 2 Advanced Soft Tissue Techniques

This training session has a more practical element than the one above, as it provides instantly effective hands–on mobilisation techniques for soft tissue.

The lessons include:

  • General & physical examination
  • How to palpate and distinguish anatomical structures
  • Advanced Soft Tissue and Mobilisation Techniques
  • Warning signs and when not to treat
  • Looking after yourself – practitioner posture
  • Safe and skilful patient handling

As well as developing your own observational and analytical skills, you will also learn the right questions and how to ask them.

“At last, exactly what I had been looking for – the missing link – a systematic approach to diagnosis and treatment. As a result I have become more confident in my abilities and effective in my treatments.”
Denise Paice MICHT, ITEC Holistic & Complimentary Therapist from HANTS

“This is a course that’s not to be missed if you are a serious massage therapist. Robert teaches in a way that is conducive to each student. He seems to know what each person’s learning needs are, as he uses a student centred approach to his teaching. As the class numbers are small, you get more hands on experience and time for each individual to grasp the knowledge and understanding. I was so impressed that I’ve invited Robert to our local FHT group meeting to demonstrate to the members. This is knowledge that should be shared!”
Sandy Wright MICHT Nursing Auxiliary & Complementary Therapist, of SOUTHAMPTON

“There was so much interesting and useful information given out over the course, I was only sorry I didn’t take more notes. Getting to grips with the new methods of treatment was the first hurdle to overcome but having begun to appreciate the importance of this everything started falling into place. Working on clients now is a completely different experience. I have changed the direction of my work. Treatments feel progressive now rather than purely passive.”
Vicki Bryceson, Holistic Massage Practitioner and ITEC Tutor. ITEC Dip.; Ly Phys; MFHT; MICHT; MATL. of WEST SUSSEX
