Hi Kaye.

I’d like to pay you a complement regarding the online reflexology course content, I am undertaking.
Even though, l didn’t complete my reflexology diploma, due to illness some time ago, I still benefited from a year of study and clinical practice.
The course you offer, is very precise and covers very much so, the important fundamentals and principles of reflexology. You most certainly have delivered a well rounded very informative course.
I’m very happy with both, reflexology and Indian head massage content study material I am undertaking.
Cheers and regards. Thank you.
Trish Diehl.

Certificate:  Of completion in Traditional Thai Massage, recognized by MAA

Objectives: This intensive course covers three levels of training in Thai Yoga massage:

Every day starts with an hour and a half Yoga class and continues with the Thai Massage component.

The first 2 weeks provide students with the practical skills to perform the traditional sequence in 4 positions: front, side, back and sitting; with the addition of a very specific understanding on how to use the body, the weight and the direction of pressure.

This includes:

•        working rules;

•        precautions and techniques;

•        use of thumbs, palms, feet, elbows and knees;

•        energy line work on the arms, legs and back from all the above positions;

•        pressure points of feet, hips, lower back, shoulders and neck;

•        sequence of stretches to unblock energy throughout the whole body.

The 3rd week consists of 5 days of supervised practice to consolidate the information learnt in the previous two weeks so to make it easier to focus on your own body mechanics and postural alignment.

Students will:

•        deepen their knowledge of the meridians of both arms and legs;

•        practice both level I and II again;

•        practice stretches they are not yet comfortable with on the teacher;

•        prepare a  sequence that they will perform on external people on the last day.

Classes are limited to 8 students, so that individuals receive complete professional training and personal attention.

CPE Points - 20

Certificate of Attendance or Competency in Modernised Indian Head Massage

Provide something different and unique for your clients.

Adding this new technique to your repertoire is a must for every massage therapist. A scalp and/or face massage is adored by many. Watch as your clients begin requesting longer sessions to specifically include this treatment at the end.

This blend still follows the ancient Indian style but also uses other modern techniques which are well suited for people in our modern fast paced lives. Its benefits are unquestioned.

 The Modernized version of this massage is a combination of Traditional style and more modern techniques to have a more therapeutic approach. The major differences are;

·  The client is lying flat on the massage table (this allows you to provide the massage as an "add on" to their normal therapy).

·  Two variations are taught in the Modern version, the traditional relaxation as well as a deeper more therapeutic version.

Rocktape Kinesiology Training Courses

Rocktape’s taping protocol is quickly becoming the standard for kinesiology taping in the medical industry.  The Rocktape courses are Australia’s most popular kinesiology tape courses.  In 2014 we conducted in excess of 60 full and half day courses, attended by more than 1,500 people.  Why the interest?

Unlike other methods, Rocktape’s taping protocol is based on an ‘open-source’ philosophy; we don’t believe there’s only one right way to tape.  We welcome applications and techniques that others have developed.  This community based approach to taping integrates concepts from all other methods and provides a framework for the practitioner to determine the best approach.

We have now developed several different options to provide education about kinesiology taping.

  1. The full day courses remain our principal method of introducing the concept of kinesiology taping to the majority of practitioners, as well as teaching them the concepts of “Power Taping”, utilising the benefits of kinesiology taping to tape the muscles associated with a particular activity, linking the muscles of the appropriate kinetic chain, ie lower back, hamstring and calf muscles that make up the posterior chain.  Investment – $290, or $190 for under graduate students.
  2. Our half day courses are attractive to busy practitioners, and those that are just keen to learn the basic principles of kinesiology taping.  These courses focus on the more commonly used Rocktape applications within the three categories of regional taping, oedema taping and postural control.  Investment – $150, or $95 for under graduate students.
  3. Rocktape 2 – a full day course for practitioners wanting to learn more kinesiology taping techniques, and have a more in depth look at the various Power Taping applications.  This course is designed for those who have already completed one of our standard courses, or who are regular users of kinesiology tape.  Investment – $290, or $190 for under graduate students.
  4. New in 2015 is Rocktape Equine – we offer both a full day course covering kinesiology taping applications for both the human and horse, and a half day course focusing on how to assist performance and recovery, during and post competition.  Investment – $390.

All courses have a significant practical component which allows an opportunity for the attendees to attempt taping numerous applications, which is important given it is quite different to rigid tape techniques.  This ensures they feel confident enough to start using Rocktape with their clients when next in the clinic, gym or sports change rooms, and they have many application ideas to use.

About CPE Made Easy

Buds to Blossoms Paediatric Massage Volunteer Program

Paediatric Massage Volunteer Program with AIDS orphans in Vietnam

Spend three weeks providing paediatric massage, infant massage and other forms of bodywork to AIDS orphans in Ho Chi Minh City.

Massage is of particular benefit to these children, because of its immune system- strengthening effect. It also promotes their general well-being by providing relief from pain and anxiety and helping meet their emotional and developmental needs through one-on-one nurturing attention and touch.

During the program, volunteers get a tremendous amount of hands-on experience of providing massage to children. Although the program's focus is primarily on caring for AIDS orphans, volunteers also spend some of their time offering massage to orphans with disabilities.

CPE points : 30

Discover Massage Australia is committed to ensuring that students learn a complete massage system for effective massage, rather than simply acquiring a set of massage strokes. Fundamental to this approach, we ensure that students are provided with all of the necessary knowledge to start a career as a massage therapist. Our range of courses offers students the ability to commence as a beginner and then advance their skills and capabilities, thereby developing into a skilful therapist, or, alternatively, to hone and improve the skill-set of therapists already at work in our industry.

We believe the massage treatment of any injury, muscular condition or relaxation session must be very thorough in nature in order to achieve maximum benefits. Thoroughness is taught and promoted in every aspect of our massage courses.

Importantly, our massage courses are endorsed by the Massage Association of Australia (MAA). At the successful completion of our Whole Body Massage Course, students are eligible for membership with the MAA, and may apply for Professional Indemnity Insurance.

What is taught at  DMA's Deep Tissue and Common Injuries?

We teach you how to fix injuries by using our thorough massage system and Unique Contractual Tendon release technique rather than teaching you just some remedial strokes with no sequence. If you want to be able to fix injuries and get that repeat customer then enrol into our Pathway courses. We look forward to teaching you.

What will our Pathway Courses teach you?

Each of the courses are designed to teach skills that can be applied immediately and developed further if desired. With each course we provide greater depths of understanding and technique and we support those practical skills with on-going advice and mentoring. We love to see our graduates do great things, so we do everything we can to help them.
