Therapeutic Massage draws on techniques from ancient and modern western massage traditions.

These styles include Swedish massage, Classical massage, Holistic and what is sometimes referred to as ‘medical’ massage. Therapeutic massage involves the use of specific techniques such as effleurage, petrissage, kneading, tapotement and percussion.

Therapeutic and Swedish massage are well known all around the world, as well as being popular and highly effective. I trained with The Holos School in London with Imelda Leahy in 1993–94.
