Here we are in May - hard to believe we are now in the 5th month this year! If you meant to start training earlier this year the good news is that you still have many opportunities to start right through the year here at the Wellington School of Massage Therapy. Over the next 2 months our schedule has something to suit the very experienced Practitioner as well as those new to Massage. Among these is the Trigger Point Release and the Clinical NeuroMuscular Therapy Courses - both taken by the very experienced tutor Leon Botello.
The Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology course starts 1 May (Wed evening) and is held over 25 Wednesday evenings throughout the year. This course covers all the major body systems and their common pathologies. You will gain a whole new understanding of how your body works - and will completely transform the way you think of your body - and bodies in general.
The Bowen Therapeutic Technique (Bowtech) Course starts 4 May - we have just one intake each year of this amazing sytem of healing. Developed by Tom Bowen this is the original Bowen Technique. Registrations being accepted now.
Trigger Point Release is one of the key courses for all Massage Therapists to study - held just once each year this is a must do course. Tutor Leon Botello is travelling down from the far north to take the Trigger Point Course as well as continuing with the advanced Clinical NeuroMuscular Therapy. Everyone who studies with Leon reports that they are suitably challenged, learn a lot and have fun in class!
Training continues with Touch for Health Kinesiology with Touch for Health 3 in May and Touch for Health 4 in June. Students wishing to repeat either of these classes can do so at a repeat student discount price.
Imagine 2 days of yummy Relaxation Massage - you can register on your own or come along with a family memeber, friend or your partner. Dates are June 8 + 9 - registrations are essential.
