Introductory Workshops in Holistic Massage

Introductory WorkshopOur two-day Introductory Workshops in Bristol (we also run some workshops in Worcester, Midsomer Norton and Chepstow please check when you book for location) introduce massage as a creative process and teach effective techniques. Above all they are fun!

The programme is likely to include:

  • Self-massage
  • Effective body use for minimising strain
  • Working with a partner including shoulders, back, legs, arms and face
  • Varied and appropriate touch using different parts of our hands
  • Working on a massage table, the floor and in a chair.
  • Safe working during COVID restrictions

We are following Covid-19 guidelines from the government and the Massage Training Institute to make sure that we are operating safely.  We expect all attendees to adhere to our Covid-19 protocols when in the building, including the use of PPE when giving/receiving massage during workshops.


These introductory workshops are suitable for people who:

  • Are absolute beginners
  • Are considering professional training with BCMB in Bristol and Worcester
  • Have already enrolled on a BCMB professional course and are keen to get started!

Completion of the Introductory Workshop may inspire you to explore massage further.

Whatever your expectations we wish you a wonderful journey.

Important – when you register to book on our system it will ask you if you’d like to receive notifications and reminders and account management information. Please tick ‘yes’ for this. It is not an opt-in for marketing – it allows the system to send you your booking confirmation, joining instructions and a reminder for your course, as well as notifications for waiting list places if you are on one.  You will not receive these otherwise and people have on rare occasion missed their workshop because of this.

It will also ask you whether you want to receive newsletters and promotions.  This is a marketing opt-in and please only say yes to this if you wish to receive emails about our courses.
