"Simonetta's Introduction Course struck a balance between teaching an understanding of the physical and the mental aspects of massage. Approaching massage with both in mind encouraged me to start to develop a sense of intuition, essential in being able to locate and relieve tensions. Focus over the course was on correct posture, learning how to be comfortable with touch/ each other and basic relevant human anatomy. It felt like a holistic teaching and I left full of interesting thoughts, a desire to learn more and some very useful skills!"
