What you'll learn in this massage class:

This workshop introduces Myofascial techniques to work effectively with localized tension, injuries, and chronic holding patterns. The course is designed to allow these techniques to be immediately incorporated with present massage skills and allow massage therapists to work deeply, safely and with ease.

In addition to techniques, the class will explore and develop a deeper understanding of body mechanics, evaluation skills, and therapeutic style. Learn to work safely and confidently with deep restrictions and common postural patterns. Examine practitioners’ personal body mechanics to reduce the chance of injury, strain, or fatigue while working.

The class format is discussion, demonstration, and hands-on exchange between students. Some specific topics to be covered in class are as follows:
  • Proper use of knuckles, fist, forearm, fingers, and elbow
  • Application of stroke strategies, such as anchor and stretch, and compartment separation
  • Assessment Principles: Movement, palpation and body-reading
  • Learning to differentiate and work with different layers of the body
  • Exploration of how to incorporate a structural approach to therapeutic massage
100-hr massage training. Bring two sheets to class.

As a bonus, participants will receive Art Riggs’ “Deep Tissue Manual: A Visual Guide to Techniques”
