This course will enable therapists to take their work into the workplace or the client's home and is especially useful for treating stress related problems, desk bound clients and Repetitive Strain Injury. Also used for the elderly or pregnant clients who are unable to lie down.
This form of treatment will extend the possibilities of the therapists's practice and repertoire. We anticipate that this will be a very popular course and recommend that you do not delay in reserving your place.
