This one-day course is very intense and on completion you will have the knowledge and practical experience necessary to identify, assess and treat specific dysfunction within the shoulder complex, which will in turn lead to greater treatment success, happier customers and a more profitable business.

Is it for You?
The advanced nature of the course content requires you have a high standard of both theoretical and practical knowledge. The minimum level of your ability, therefore, is Level 3 Sport Massage Therapist with ITEC, VTCT, IIST, Premier or similar diploma qualification. If you are an Osteopath, Chiropractor or Physiotherapist you would also benefit greatly from this course. Pre Course Learning is essential and we would suggest a good knowledge and/or revision of the shoulder with particular emphasis on the joints & ligaments, muscle origins and insertions.
I left your training session buzzing with information and this time with the added bonus of having my arm back! I will definitely be attending your courses in December! Thanks again for helping me develop and grow in a subject I am very passionate about.” – Jo Rainsley
