The Diploma in Advanced Remedial Massage builds on the foundations laid within the Diploma in Remedial and Sports Massage to enable the practising massage therapist to build on their existing skills, allowing them to treat a much wider range of conditions and injuries. Advanced diagnostic skills are covered, together with the treatment and re-alignment of the spine and other imbalances within the body, allowing the practitioner to treat the condition presented with precision and effectiveness.
