Glasgow School of Massage joins Future Pathways

A massage school offering trauma-informed treatment has joined Future Pathways as a Support Provider. 

The Glasgow School of Massage offers training courses as well as various therapies to help address people’s wellbeing. 

Head tutor and therapist Rachel Black offers a private treatment clinic to the public with a range of specialised massage treatments including therapeutic massage, scar management, aromatherapy, oncology massage, and manual lymphatic drainage. 

Rachel is adversity and trauma informed. She understands the impact of trauma and that it must be recognised and that re-traumatisation must be avoided at all times. She said: “Trauma can have long lasting impact and directly affect the individual and their environment. Sometimes, this requires significant social, emotional, neurobiological, psychological or behavioural adaptation.” 

Rachel added: “After recently starting to work with Future Pathways we are looking forward to continuing our work offering a vital space and modality for clients to experience safe touch, relaxation, comfort, tension relief and conscious attention.” 

The Glasgow School of Massage is a trusted provider of accredited (Accredited by the FHT, Federation of Holistic Therapists) professional courses and recognised qualifications for beginners to established therapists. All training is insurable for professional use.
