What people are saying about this Gua sha massage course:
"Mark Perren-Jones' massage courses and instruction proves to be the most expansive I have ever experienced for my practice. I have been in surgical practice and also alternative medicine for many years. His knowledge base is fantastic and the method of delivery is engaging and easy to follow, and want to! I have enrolled in three other massage courses after the first one because it is surely to not disappoint." Dr. S. H.
There is a reason that so many of the best massage therapists use Gua Sha (also known as instrument assisted soft tissue massage therapy and Graston technique).
It loosens muscles, treats pain, is used for better health, is great for facial rejuvenation and helps systemic problems such as digestive and respiratory problems.
Mark has been using Gua Sha to treat thousands of his massage clients and his own body for over 25 years and has seen remarkable results in his massage clinic.
You do not need any massage training! In this course, Mark teaches you everything you need to know to effectively treat :
your own pain and your family, friends and massage clients
as an anti-aging tool for the face-a non-surgical facelift!
health conditions such as constipation, insomnia and headaches
You will learn how to detect and break up scar tissue, adhesions and tissues that cause pain and dysfunction easily, quickly and painlessly.
If you are a massage therapist this will not only get you better results with your clients but also save your hands as well!
Gua sha is a healing technique of traditional East Asian medicine. Sometimes called ‘coining, spooning or scraping’,
You do not need to buy any expensive tools. You can use things as simple as the lid of a jar, a Chinese soup spoon or even just a coin.
In fact, modern research shows Gua sha produces an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single Gua sha treatment. This is why it has been effectively on pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, wheeze, nausea and vomiting and many other health conditions and why Gua sha is effective in acute and chronic internal organ disorders as well.
The beauty of this treatment technique is that it is easy to perform, inexpensive and very powerful.
In this course Mark will guide you step by step so that you too will have the knowledge and understanding to treat yourself, your friends and family and your clients just like people have been doing for centuries.
I look forward to seeing you in class!
