I started tutoring and lecturing in 2003 with the Scottish Massage Schools. Progressing to Course Leader I continued to work on their courses until 2010. It was a wonderful experience, hard work, but incredibly rewarding. Seeing the absolute delight of students when all their hard work and dedication paid off, inspired me to develop new ways to motivate, support and effectively impart information. Without doubt I discovered the best way to learn is to teach.
The natural state of an enquiring mind is to ask more questions as new avenues and possibilities are opened up to you. Over the years I attended many courses and massage workshops. I felt there were missing pieces to the jigsaw puzzle and thought that maybe it was a lack of techniques. When my anatomical, physiological, psychological and functional knowledge increased I recognised I’d been looking in the wrong place and asking the wrong questions. As my understanding evolved, newer and more relevant questions took their place.
"The natural state of an enquiring mind is to ask more questions"
The workshops I offer are designed to further your knowledge and understanding. New and existing techniques will become much more effective, alive and targeted as you think how and what instead of where and why.
By understanding how it works and what is happening, the where can I use this and why I am using it are automatically answered. You already have all the tools you need: your hands and your ability to think it through.
If you are interested in attending a workshop please contact me by email, text or Facebook messaging.
Maybe a few of you want to look at something specific? I can tailor workshops to suit. Simply a review of anatomy, taking a closer look at the gait cycle or reviewing techniques? Whatever you feel is a missing piece of your jigsaw, I will happily build a bite size workshop. For example a 1/2 day workshop on the introduction to chronic pain, for a minimum of 6 participants. All workshop will come with a comprehensive hand-out and Certificate of Attendance for Continued Professional Development (CPD).
