Profiles and Testimonials

"I knew I wanted to connect with people and I thought a remedial massage course would suit my lifestyle.  I now have a grown family and a supportive partner, so this was the perfect opportunity to move forward with my passion of starting a new career in massage.
I am very keen to work in massage that is not directly related to sport, including health issues, rehabilitation, geriatric and chronic disease. I am confident that remedial massage can make peoples life more comfortable and make them feel better about themselves, and being a part of this journey with a client will be very rewarding. 
I am passionate about the benefits of massage and through The Gordon’s remedial massage course I am able to broaden by skill set and understand the connection of massage and good health and wellbeing. 
The ongoing hands-on clinic training allows me to put in to practice the skills I have learned and I can’t wait to finish my course and start my new career caring for people."
