Movements covered include effleurage, petrissage, vibration, friction and tapotement, and you will learn how to massage the whole body. You will learn the benefits and contra-indications of Swedish Body Massage, client care and record keeping.
The Swedish Body Massage technique is a pre-requisite before gaining a licence to work as a Beauty Therapist or Massage Therapist and is therefore a very useful skill to have in the beauty industry.
