I have the first part of 2019 to evolve and refocus continuing education workshops for massage therapists. Of course, I am hoping these new offerings will be of interest to many of you and will assist you in becoming more effective in resolving the muscular-skeletal pains of your patients. I have said for many years that as we become more skilled therapists, patients with ever more challenging painful difficulties, come our way. Our work is a lifetime of learning.

The Movement of Massage
Friday 1:30-7:30PM and Saturday 8:30AM-5:45PM
September 27 & 28
Passive ranges of motion, specialized regional movements, and patient-assisted active ranges of motion may become a vital part of your strategy to reduce muscular-skeletal pain. Using movement, along with pressure and manipulation, is not only more effective for releasing taut bands and trigger points, but also allows you to do so using less pressure.

Your patients will benefit from this more gentle approach and your hands will experience significantly less stress. Movement strategies will also improve your skill of assessment by informing your palpation and making it easier to identify specific muscles as causes of pain.
