Introduction To Holistic Massage 1 - A fun and creative weekend workshop - Solihull
Date : Saturday, 14th March 2020
Duration : 2 Day weekend workshop
Tutor : Samantha Roberts
Description
We will learn simple foot, back, neck, shoulder, face massage and relaxation techniques; introduce chakras and stillness work. If you are wondering whether to study for the Diploma course and would like a taster of the Meridian's teaching approach; want to use massage at home, or just want a relaxing weekend, this might be for you! An informal 'feelgood' weekend. Previous massage experience not required.
What participants say: 'This course cannot easily be summed up with words. 'It was holistic in essense. It was emotional, spiritual and physical. It was so much more, it was an experience!! Great facilitation!!'
And: 'Coming together at peace, harmony, happiness. The confronting and loss of ungrounded fears and respect for others and myself.' And further: 'The Intro course has been amazing. I've learnt so much about massage, touch, communication and not least about myself. The time went so quickly and I'm quite sad it's over. I feel quite proud of myself and the other people on the course and am surprised at how much we achieved in such a short time. I feel much more comfortable with touch and touching and can't wait to do more!'

Spent two days with Earle (Abrahamsom) on his taping and strapping course. It was utterly fascinating and he delivers the course in not only a professional but such a user friendly way. An excellent teacher. I have learnt another skill for my tool box. It is a packed course and would be great if extended by another day. Thanks Meridian for another fabulous course.
