Have you always wanted to learn massage?
Do your family or friends often ask you to give them a neck or back rub? Do you give massages at home, but are not sure you are doing them properly? Are you concerned that you may hurt the recipient?
The act of massage brings a whole range of benefits for the wellbeing of both the giver and receiver. One of our goals at Therapy One Massage is to enable more people to experience the healing, life giving effects of massage.
There are many forms of massage. The gift of massage, does not belong only to professionally trained therapists.
The scope of massage is more than just to treat injuries, or release tense muscles. Massage is a great relaxation and stress release tool. It can improve the communication and bond in a relationship, whether between adults, parent and child or child and child. Massage fulfills the basic, but all too often neglected, human need of being touched and cared for.

If you want to teach yourself how to massage there are some excellent resources on the internet. The advantage of self instruction is that you can learn at your own pace, and the resources enable you to revise as often as you need.
The following resources have my personal recommendation.
I have purchased them, read the printed material and watched the DVDs/videos. The authors are well respected massage therapists.
