About your tutor: Alison Dalziel
Alison has been working with massage since 1994 and enjoys every aspect of soft tissue treatment whether the initial problem be of chronic or acute origin.  Alison treats athletes, office workers, pensioners and children and tries to promote prevention rather than cure.  She has worked in Spain and Asia in the past but is now settled in the UK.
Alison has been tutoring at the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM) in London since 2011, in both lead and assisting roles and has also been appointed as Course Coordinator and lead tutor at the LSSM Brighton branch.
She has now also trained as an acupuncturist, on a BSc (Hons) degree in Acupuncture at the International College of Oriental Medicine.

A one day course which will give you the skills to safely apply this simple and effective technique in your clinic.


Soft Tissue Release is a manual therapy that can be used to complement your massage or acupuncture treatments, to release restricted areas of muscle tension and increase range of movement in the joints.

It can be applied directly onto the skin or through clothing or towels, making it easy to use in clinic. It is applied actively (with patient involvement), passively, or even weight bearing (patient standing).


Soft Tissue Release is an easier technique for the practitioner but can have the same benefits as a deep tissue massage within a shorter time frame. During the workshop day you will learn to release muscle tension easily, safely and effectively with instant results for your patients.
