Why Learn NO HANDS Massage?

With Cathy Ward Licenced instructor of NO HANDS Massage

Top training for No strain massage in the UK. Protecting your career and your livelihood.
NO HANDS is the top and most extensive strain free massage training in the U.K. Other forms of no strain massage can be about protecting your hands, but in protecting your hands you can damage and strain your shoulders, back and other areas of the body through wrong posture. But in NO HANDS we teach true no strain massage, that protects your hands shoulders, and back. Great for event work, but also amazing for a full day's work in the clinic or therapy room. Protecting your career for life. My goal is to love my work till I retire, and may be beyond.

Why work in isolation when you can be part of a strong supportive community?
The NO HANDS community is a strong and supportive community, and in all the associations I have been a part of, I have never seen anything like this. Business ideas are shared, advice can be sought on a whole range of subjects from how to deal with that difficult client, to that client with the illness you have never heard off. Within an hour top therapists from around the country can be discussing, supporting, and advising. There is no better way to make a well informed decision. Also there is a Master Therapist on the end of a phone Monday to Friday. Many Therapists work in isolation in their own therapy room. But as a community we train together, support each other at events, and work as a team to build our businesses strong and often will chat between Massages. There is strength in working together.


I teach from a business perspective, what really works in business and what brings the clients in.
Many Massage teachers and tutors teach from the classroom environment, but have never run their own business. But what is right for the classroom is not always what works in business. I have my own Massage business and teach from a working knowledge of what really does work. I don't have all the answers, but I have a lot of answers that work, and can discuss the pros and cons of different ideas, and if I'd use them in my business.
I don't just teach massage but running a business, setting up a business, and bringing in the clients.

I actively engage in learning to keep my work fresh and fun.
Also as an instructor I commit to growing and learning and stretching myself, to be even better for my clients, and have more to give my students. I'm not teaching you what I learnt once 20 years ago and passing that on. I actively engage in learning, forums, and work alongside other top therapists around the country with the same passion for Massage.
My work is not stale and boring, not my Massage business, not my Massage, nor my teaching. My work has passion and energy, and shows a love of what I do. I keep my love for Massage is fresh and fun.

And clients love it!
The clients love NO HANDS, the “gentle giant of massage”! Being able to go deep without the pain, the different and varied ways we can work, from deep to light, fast to slow, from structural to nurturing. One of my clients left me because she couldn't get booked in easily within a week, whenever she wanted. Two months later she was back, doubled the number of massages she had, and agreed to book in advance. Most of my regular clients drive between 30 minutes and an hour and a half to get to me.


Past Students comments

From the outset Cathy exudes the confidence and knowledge needed from a great tutor imparting their skill to others.  Although my skill level and experience was different to Cathy's I felt equally respected, and the challenges I faced to learn new techniques were over come through her patience and unique teaching style.

In a relaxed atmosphere Cathy manages to exert a strong sense of professionalism which facilitates learning because everyone is clear on the boundaries and expectations.

Cathy is a clear leader and explains the methods of NO HANDS  in a sensible, reasoned way which makes what we learn come easier than expected.

We are lucky to have been given the opportunity to learn NO HANDS  from someone with such faith in herself and what she offers her clients and students.

Cathy is an amazing mentor and teacher.  She has an unlimited amount of patience with explaining and assisting, and is non judging, very encouraging, positive and supportive.

Cathy is welcoming and very attentive, she has been an absolute pleasure to work and learn from.

Cathy is approachable and makes you feel at ease.  Nothing is too much for her.  She thoroughly enjoys and has a passion for her work and she is happy to share and gives everything.

I would and will not hesitate to work and do more courses with her.

I would not have achieved my NO HANDS without the one and only Cathy Ward.

Thank you so much.

See you soon.
