What People Are Saying:

I have completed a few courses with MFR UK both in person and online. The course content is very well presented and thorough. I felt very confident practicing my skills after completing. Ruth and Linda are both fantastic teachers and I am looking forward to learning more

Sharon Iacono - Sports Massage Therapist

Amazing courses, amazing teaching. It’s opened up a whole new world of intuitive techniques and a truly holistic treatment approach. The more I learn the more I want to know! Looking forward to attending more courses later this year to add to my skills as I’ve already seen amazing results with my clients just using stage 1 techniques. The teaching skill, knowledge and enthusiasm for their subject is second to none. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
