Professional Development Training Courses for Massage Practitioners

Welcome to Dynamic Massage, the website of Darien Pritchard.

This year I’m celebrating 40 years as a bodyworker and massage teacher. This website covers the Professional Development Training to increase the skills and experience of qualified massage practitioners and aromatherapists.

Each of the massage training courses are designed to teach you practical skills that you can immediately incorporate into your massage treatments (with a little practice).

Each course is self-contained. You don’t need to do any of the other courses to be able to use the techniques covered. However the courses do complement each other – so doing more than one of these courses will enhance the learning that you will gain from each individual course.

Please contact me if you would like further information or if you’d like me to come and teach for your group.

I look forward to seeing you at a future training course.

All the best
Darien Pritchard

( I also offer individual, paired or group coaching for massage trainers to refresh their teaching.)
