Here it is… another certificate! This one is for Indian Head Massage.

A traditional ayervedic treatment, which is usually done seated and without having to remove clothing. The treatment can be done with or without the use of oils.

MTI conference

Yesterday was the 29th annual MTI massage conference, this year it was held in Solihull. 

It’s a great chance to meet old and new friends and a great way to learn new techniques, get some inspiration and to see new products available.

This year I attended 2 workshops. The first was to learn about muscle testing for the lower back. This workshop introduced some Amatsu Therapy techniques and I found these to be very effective, it’s definitely something I will be looking into.

The second workshop I attended was about marketing my massage practice, I got some good ideas about choosing a target audience and how to tailor my marketing to attract them. 

I also got to meet and chat with the chief executive of the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council, a very lovely lady, who says that there are exciting things ahead for massage therapy. 

It’s always a lovely day at the conference and I came away feeling even more excited and passionate about massage. And, as always, I got a lovely certificate at the end of the day! 

CPD

I’ve been taking part in some online Q&A sessions lately. They count towards my annual Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements , which means I get a certificate for taking part. 

As part of the requirements I have to write 400 words about what I’ve learnt. So far we’ve covered tight hamstrings and trigger points. They’ve been very useful sessions and hopefully they will continue with lots of different subjects.
