When you graduate from Sheffield Centre for Massage Training you will be able to give a massage to suit your clients needs. You will be able to choose from a large range of approaches at your fingertips – literally. You will be able to work with deep tissue techniques, working into muscles and mobilizing joints to ease stiffness. You will be able to lengthen and relax muscles, increase circulation and therefore nourish muscles. Using a variety of techniques you will be able to work on tight, stringy areas that may have been brought about by overuse or incorrect posture. At the other end of this spectrum you will be able to apply overall relaxing approaches, which work on the nervous system, calming and bringing about a deep relaxed state by using gentle yet powerful techniques. You will be able to guide your client into linking breathing to your strokes and therefore involving your client in their own healing and you will also be able to work with simple visualisation and subtle energy techniques. It is because of this range that you are able to tailor the massage to your client.
