Kind words from learners…


A really interesting introduction to massage. Being a complete beginner the course was perfect for breaking down the core components of giving a thorough back massage. The ability to apply pressure without putting strain on your own body by using correct technique was really insightful. Devon is a great teacher who demonstrated everything perfectly and was always on hand to guide each student. A very calm, relaxed atmosphere throughout the class and I would highly recommend.

Will Maudsley
(Introduction to Massage)

I took part in a half day back massage workshop and thoroughly enjoyed it! Devon was a great teacher. Very clear, patient, relaxed, aware of everyone’s needs, and a fun sense of humour! The course was well paced with plenty of teaching and spacious breaks too, to allow us to assimilate before moving on. I would recommend her courses, and the location is stunning too – worth adding some extra time onto your trip to explore the area.

Amy Boud
(Back Massage Workshop)

My wife and I attended the half day back massage session with Devon. It was a session that dispelled all our ideas of how to deliver a massage and Devon gives you the basic skills to give a meaningful and effective back and neck massage using different techniques. Thoroughly recommend this course for anyone who wants to understand how to massage properly.
