Just for fun courses

If you are interested in complementary therapies and would like to come on a training course just for fun, Calming Influences offers courses in reflexology, indian head massage, aromatherapy blending and back massage. Each one day or weekend course teaches you how to safely practice your chosen therapy. We will cover a little of the history of the therapy, but the main focus will be practical.

These courses are also ideal if you are thinking of becoming a therapist, and want to see if you enjoy learning and carrying out the therapy or if you would just like to learn a routine you can practice on family and friends.
