MASSAGE THE YEARS AWAY - By Rebecca Barnes
"We are fascinated by anti-ageing. Open up a magazine and you're likely to find an article on looking younger, while chemists' shelves groan under the weight of anti-wrinkle products.
However for every person willing to spend vast amounts of money and time on their looks there's another looking for a cheaper, less extreme alternative.
We all left the class glowing and my face felt firmer and tighter. I was buzzing as I went home and couldn't wait to give my unsuspecting husband the full treatment. "
It is a well known fact that facial expressions, stress, pollution and modern life over the years contribute to ageing, this causes muscles in the face to lose tone elasticity and they start to sag.
Many have heard of the term 'everything going South'; but you can do something to help.
The amazing results are clear for all to see, over a period of time skin appears rejuvenated, and wrinkles seem to be dramatically reduced for many without the need for painful surgery. A natural instant facelift can be achieved with this treatment and clients return again and again for the results.
Please be aware this course is the only one to include facial reflexology, Lymphatic Drainage & methods from Indian face massage as well as the other 'East meets West' techniques making it exclusive to Gateway Workshops.
Other copycat versions are available on the market but do not adhere to the high quality and collection of techniques offered on our course. Furthermore, for your protection, our courses hold copyright so no other course will be exactly the same.
Our philosophy is to keep classes small that way more attention can be given to each student. You will learn the same technique offered by other companies; however we pride ourselves on one to one tuition in smaller classes. If the tutor feels a second day is needed this will be offered free of charge.
You will receive a comprehensive manual on the day to take home which covers the course material. This includes all the relevant Anatomy and physiology and details on how to get insurance.
Additionally we have produced our own DVD's which show the techniques step-by-step exactly as you have learnt them; including the contraindications.
The DVD will also be available on the day of the course and makes an excellent visual reference (£10.00).
These DVD's are available exclusively to our students and cannot be purchased without attending the course. Gateway Workshops feel it is essential that you've both performed and received the massage and training to ensure you are safe and competent.
The treatment lasts for around 30-40 minutes and during your training the tutor will advise you on cost to charge the client and how to obtain insurance to practice.
With our training you will receive your Practitioners Certificate at the end of day, you will then be able to obtain insurance and practice on the general public and charge for the treatment.

Feedback from Emma Hanna
Fantastic tutor a real passion for teaching massage and it is contagious. Even step and detail of the massage was thoroughly explained and she was more than happy to answer any questions. I would highly recommend her and would be interested in her other courses with Gateway too.
Feedback from Ghazala Hussain-Shahzad
Tutor was amazing and very welcoming. I was a bit nervous as the course was a new experience for me. But she made me feel very welcome and I would not hesitate to book with her again. A very friendly comfortable environment. I would definitely attend another course with Gateway. They are very professional and friendly.
I came across gateway after surfing the net for the course I wanted to attend. I was impressed with the courses offered also I could collect CPD points for my CThA insurance, being one of the factors guiding me to attend your courses. I will definitely attending more courses with you.I am so glad I came across the site.
Feedback from Lucia Cooper
My tutor was a beautiful person and has a wonderful energy. She is an excellent teacher and her passion and love for her craft really shows. Being quite a shy person, I was a bit nervous as it was my first hands on treatment, but she made you feel at ease and she was wonderfully engaging. The teaching method is brilliant as the treatment is broken down into stages and you get to try each part on each other. As the classes are kept small, everyone can get the most out of the day and it is a great feeling when at the end you put the whole treatment together and you realize that you have actually learnt it. You also receive a manual, which is informative, concise and easy to follow. Also a DVD is available to purchase which helps to refresh what was learnt on the day, once you are back into your own environment. I have looked, and researched many training companies and eventually chose Gateway, as I like the ides of small classes and being able to learn a skill in a day. I was really pleased and are now looking forward to other courses. I am thinking of the Chair Massage course next! Thank You Gateway.
