HLT52015 Diploma of Remedial Massage

Healing touch is one of the oldest, most instinctual and powerful methods of caring available for human beings. Massage involves the stimulation of the superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, using various techniques to enhance function, aid in the healing process and promote relaxation and well-being. Massage involves working and acting on the body with pressure or moving on muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, joints, other connective tissue, as well as vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearms and feet.
