It addresses techniques which assists with such problems as, e.g. frozen shoulders, sciatica, back-problems, etc. The techniques shown are simple and effective and the course also investigates which Essential Oils are the most useful in support of Remedial and Sport-injuries treatments.
This course was originally formulated at the request of some of our ex-students who were frequently being asked by their Clients to help with problems with which they did not feel confident enough to tackle. As such, it has arisen from authentic 'field-problems' and has proved extremely beneficial to those who have subsequently used the techniques taught during the weekend.
