The Sheiling Ringwood, a Camphill school and college, is looking for a Massage Therapist who is interested in working as part of an holistic approach within a large therapy team comprising conventional therapists: speech and language, occupational therapy as well as behaviour coordinators. The Sheiling’s Therapy Offer includes the complementary anthroposophical therapies of transactional arts therapy, Eurythmy, colour light therapy, music and massage. The Health and Therapy team also comprises a registered nurse, who leads the team and a health administrator. Whilst The Sheiling has gone through many changes over the years, our ethos is based on anthroposophical approaches and that still stands at the heart of our work.

Massage therapy with children and young adults with learning difficulties is exceedingly rewarding as their response to massage is so immediate and profound. Our current massage therapist has been with us for nearly 30 years but they are now stepping back from their role so we are looking for a successor. Initially, there will be a possibility to job share as our current Massage Therapist will continue to work 2 mornings a week from Easter 2021 but will withdraw fully within a few years.

The Sheiling is open to any offers, from sessional work to part-time hours, ideally up to 4 days per week. We welcome interest for term time, part time and sessional work (please enquire about hourly rates if interested in this).
