About the Freestyle Massage course

Each person has their own unique massage style and this course sheds light on the practical differences of each of the ones we’ll work with within the Freestyle Massage Course.


We’ll learn how to start different types of Massage as well as how to unify them so that the services we offer don’t just have a different title for our customers. Your customers will avail of the opportunity to experience your signature massages, as well as your unique freestyle massage. 


This course helps us identify the massage skills that create signature massages but also helps us realize and shape our own freestyle massage.


It teaches how to combine what we will learn, with our own. Blending massage techniques is a technique in itself!  


It takes a while to figure out what we are all about as massage therapists, and which direction to follow. Am I a sports massage therapist? A holistic massage therapist, a wellness massage therapist?This course gives a very broad array of mastered techniques that give a very good idea about what each type of massage is about. 


Step out of your comfort zone to expand your skills and your brand by learning techniques you can add to your repertoire.


You may find more types of massages that you’d love to learn and offer. For example, you may be a sports massage therapist and your main market is sports professionals or fitness enthusiasts, but you may also love the nature of relaxation and wellness massages. Or you may be a master in Thai massage and known for that, but you have a strong interest in western trigger points therapy.


This course will give you the time, experience, and confidence to develop your brand, without draughting your professional image and niche.

My first impression of Simone is that she is very professional and reliable. She didn't disappoint when she came to judge at The national Massage Championship in Serbia. She was objective, fair, and easy to work with. Simone is very positive and has a kind personality. It came to my attention that her goal was to effectively communicate all that she knows about massage to her students. Simone is truly dedicated to this profession.
