Teacher

Sam Curtis

I am an FHT registered and fully insured therapist and accredited massage tutor. I have many years of medical experience in addition to my 23 years+ experience in massage therapy. I specialise in children with cerebral palsy, domestic abuse and PTSD, pregnancy and postnatal health, women's health and post surgical care, as well as sports injuries.

After teaching student nurses and running Active Birth workshops, I decided to start teaching massage because I recognise that there are too many gaps in massage training. Students are taught the contraindications, but not how to apply them. They go into practice not understanding basic medical conditions that they will regularly be faced with or how to tell when something is a contraindication or a precaution. Consequently I have heard too much negative feedback from clients who come to me after seeing numerous therapists, none of whom have been able to explain why they have a particular problem. I have also witnessed too many therapists now, some of whom have been working as a massage therapist for 10 years, yet still dont understand the basic anatomy and physiology and don't know the right questions to ask to ensure the wellbeing of their clients, resulting in them giving clients completely inappropriate treatments for their medical conditions.

My training courses therefore, are unique in the way they generally take on a more medical approach and give the therapist the information needed to ask the right questions.
