Introduction to massage course

Tia Tamblyn massage Cornwall

The Introduction to Massage course is designed for people who are keen to learn or refresh basic massage skills – for using with friends and family, and for those who would like to explore massage as a career option.  The course covers:

  • Practical considerations such as setting up the massage couch, maintaining good posture and protecting the body whilst working
  • Brief overview of the workings of the body
  • Focus on techniques for massaging the back, neck and head
  • How to apply these massage techniques to other parts of the body

The course is very interactive, providing lots of opportunity to give and receive massage during the day, putting into practice what you learn.  Individuals are most welcome to attend, as are friends and partners.  The course is run with very small groups (up to six people) so there is lots of individual tutoring and support.

Tia's courses are run Botelet Farm in South East Cornwall.  A course handbook, bottle of organic massage oil to take away and all resources needed are provided along with teas, coffees and healthy snacks for break times, please bring a packed lunch. 

The Introduction to Massage course can be run as a one day workshop, or a series of evening classes.  See below for upcoming dates, and contact Tia with any questions or to arrange a new course date.


This course is an APNT recognised workshop.
