Massage  Foundation Training
Weekend, 5. - 7. April 2024  

Connecting with hands and heart

Massage is one of the most effective therapies used to strengthen the immune  system, reduce stress, improve the skin, strengthen the bones and the joints and improve the body´s circulation. It assists to flush out waste products and produces youthfulness. 


why this can enrich your life

Many people suffer from hypertension in muscles, exhaustion and feeling restless. If stress or overtaxing in general comes on top, the quality of life can be compromised severely. Through massage, we can stimulate all  tissues, enhance circulation, activate detoxing processes and soothe the nervous system.

"Foundation in Massage"  is for you if you would like to learn a safe and holistic full body sequence to give to your friends, partner or family. The seminar provides life training and  practical knowledge. We look into anatomical details and talk about some helpful energy and acupressure points. You can integrate the new input to your bag of skills and apply it into your life.

Learning together is fun. In an appreciative environment you can learn intuitively, easily and with enthusiasm. Small group experience for relaxed atmosphere and authentic connection.
