  • said:A very practical course delivered in a fun environment. Jade’s passion and enthusiasm was wonderful.

  • said:I would like to participate in a seated massage course when it is available please.

  • said:great teacher, course content and delivery very good.

  • said:The venue was easy to get to (by bus from Eastern Suburbs), the course content was great and Jade did a fabulous making everyone feel comfortable. I walked away feeling more confident in providing a massage to others, and in managing my own sport-induced muscle tightness. The overview of the various muscles and the skeletal system was very informative, and the practical components invaluable in putting theory into practice. I'd highly recommend the course to anyone curious about massaging friends and family, or even to someone wishing to explore if this may be an occupation they'd feel comfortable pursuing (with additional training). The course attendees came with a wide range of motivations to learn, and I felt everyone was well catered for. Thanks Jade :-)
