I’d been looking for a massage course for a long time before finding Despina. Nothing had felt right before. I was looking for a teacher who was wise, experienced, has a heart for people, and an instinctive way of responding to health and the body. Despina is all of those things. She is very knowledgable, and that shines through. She really knows her craft and cares about people and those she is passing it on to. She believes in what she does, and having spent a week with her, feeling the impact of this approach – so do I. I have left the course really excited about sharing, and feeling confident to do so. Not only have I learnt loads, I feel like I’ve been on the most amazing retreat.
