Mel Cash Sports Massage Masterclass in Chamonix

Mel Cash Sports Massage Masterclass in Chamonix

Mel Cash Sports Massage Training – Chamonix

There are many great massage therapists in Chamonix Mont Blanc and based around the Alps. Any good massage practitioner wants to keep training – but accessing the major massage schools from the Alps is trickier than hopping aboard a train and a tube!¬† So ChamoFix Massage has been looking to Fix up some of the best massage training available – but here in our own beautiful Alpine location. The London School of Sports Massage, set up by Mel Cash, author of “Sport & Remedial Massage Therapy“, “The Pocket Atlas of the Moving Body” and “Sports Massage“, offers the highest qualification in Clinical Sport and Remedial Massage – the BTEC Diploma level 5. Mel Cash also offers bi-monthly massage training clinics for professional massage therapists at the London School. With the plethora of action sports and sports people in the valley of Chamonix Mont Blanc, from skiing and snowboarding to high mountain multi-pitch climbing, downhill mountain biking, trail running, road biking and triathlons – this sort of CPD massage training would be rather useful for Chamonix massage therapists and thus the greater Chamonix community at large!

So, as massage therapists passionate about learning more and more to offer better and better massage treatments, ChamoFix Massage has invited Mel Cash, the original Sports Massage Master and elite-athlete Masseur over to our beautiful Chamonix valley… for a three day Sports Massage Masterclass – Mon 3rd, Tues 4th and Wed 5th May 2010.

While Chamonix has access to one of the world’s leading sports massage masters, we are also putting on a 10euro evening lecture (Monday 3rd May 2010) for anyone interested in helping our bodies perform better and last longer! The Mel Cash lecture will be about: “Posture and Core-Stability – what does it mean and why is it important?”

Reserved for Qualified Massage Therapists  (minimum ITEC A&P and Holistic Massage Level 3 or equivalent.), the three-day sports massage course is limited to 12 spaces, so book early to avoid disappointment!

Course Outline

Although the workshops can be taken separately it is hoped that most therapists will attend all three.
