Deep Tissue Massage

In this programme we explore Deep Tissue Massage techniques. The programme consists of an online theory module, and a 3-day practical contact workshop. Deep tissue massage (DTM) is a specialised massage technique that employs slow and deep massage strokes to target the muscles and connective tissue that lie beneath superficial and intermediate layers of tissue. Deep tissue aims to alleviate stress, tension and pain which build up within the soft tissues of the body, thus realigning sub layers of connective tissue, muscle tissue and fascia. “It requires an understanding of the layers of the body, and the ability to work with the tissue in these layers to relax, lengthen and release holding patterns in the most effective and energy efficient way possible” (Riggs, 2007:3).

Online theory module will cover:

  • Principles of DTM
  • Benefits of DTM
  • Techniques used during DTM
  • Indications and Contra-indications to DTM
  • Practical Workshop: three-day practical workshop after successful completion of the online theory module
  • Summative Assessment. Portfolio of evidence.

At the end of the theory module, an online assessment will need to be completed; the online assessments are required to be completed before the Practical training workshop. The study material for the online assessment will be the PowerPoint presentations as well as the additional resources made available.
