Sports therapists, dance teachers, homeopaths, acupuncturists, massage therapists and yoga teachers are being invited to discover how they could add a new bodywork qualification to their repertoire.

Nottingham-based therapy teaching centre The Full Movement Training School is now recruiting for a two-year part-time programme in the Full Movement Method.

The course, which is accredited by the Federation of Holistic Therapists, was developed in the East Midlands and focuses on the Full Movement Method – a unique method of resolving muscle and joint pain, immobility and malfunction.

It was developed by Andy Thomas, from West Bridgford, Nottingham, who treated hundreds of patients over many years, including sportsmen and women, actors and road accident victims.

Andy, who died in March 2011, trained therapists locally, nationally and abroad to practise FMM, and students have gone on to open FMM clinics in Bournemouth, Sheffield and elsewhere.

Andy also ran the Nottinghamshire-based Shanti Yoga School, which has trained dozens of yoga teachers in Hatha Yoga.

The core postures in yoga are at the heart of initial diagnosis for FMM, and Andy saw the flexibility that yoga postures bring as a fundamental key to relieving pain via FMM.

His wife Liz Thomas, who runs both schools, said: “The Full Movement Method course is ideal for therapists, dance teachers, homeopaths, acupuncturists and yoga teachers who are looking to increase their skills and offer additional services to their clients.

“We’re now accepting applications from students who are interested in joining our course, which starts in January 2013.”

The course will be taught at Colwick, Nottingham, roughly once a month at weekends over two years – making it ideal for those who currently have full or part-time jobs or other commitments during the week.
