The course focuses on practical hand massage techniques, theory of therapeutic touch and the correct use of essential oils.

These massage techniques are based on simplicity and gentleness and aimed at reducing stress and tension, providing relaxation to the body and mind. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, it was very interesting and informative, taught with a caring and sensitive approach.”
