We are pleased to announce that all courses and workshops are now running as usual.
We are following strict 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 CPD workshops.
We have added an optional PPE supplement to the cost of our workshops. You are welcome to bring your own gloves, mask apron and visor to your workshop if you have them – please bring enough of each to last the day. Alternatively, you can pay £5 for use of all gloves, masks and aprons while you are on the workshop plus an additional £5 for a re-usable visor which you then keep. Please note that the use of PPE is not optional.
Who can benefit?
Our Advanced workshops in Bristol and Worcester are designed to extend the skills, experience, and the creative possibilities open to qualified practitioners of massage and other bodywork disciplines (e.g. shiatsu, osteopathy, dance and fitness.)
They can also be a great way for practitioners to re-connect with massage after a break from the work.
People with considerable practical experience who wish to further their knowledge base may also find them helpful.
Please contact us if you are unsure whether you qualify.
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.
Each hour of any workshop accumulates 1 CPD point.
As well as our own in house massage workshops at BCMB, we are very pleased to host a number of other experienced workshop tutors who run courses from BCMB, many of whom are leaders in their fields. These workshops are open to qualified massage or other bodywork practitioners only.
