Private Course ScarWork Therapists Certification

If the advertised dates aren’t suitable for you, we can organise a private ScarWork™ Therapists Certification course. Two therapists are required, so learn with a friend or colleague or get in touch and Restore Therapy may be able to match your requirements with another therapist.

This will be delivered over 3 days (24 hours) to suit your schedule and our availability, either 3 consecutive days or as a non-consecutive course, delivered over 2 days followed by a gap with time between to practice your skills, returning for the final day to complete the course.
