Yesterday I did the massage for cancer training with Debbie slater .. I learnt so much and would advise anyone to do this course if you want to understand more about this disease as well as having an insight into what your clients may be experiencing Just think of all of your clients who CAN have massage !!! Excellent tutor, clear , concise and a lovely warm personality 🌻
It was a great course and has put me at ease about doing massage on people with cancer. Debbie has been a great tutor. November 2018.
