This hands-on course focuses on learning an advanced foundational cross fiber stroke with an emphasis on attaining depth not increasing pressure. Unlike long flowing strokes, which direct blood for the purpose of relaxation, cross friction techniques encourage site-specific blood flow for the purpose of preparing the tissues for corrective therapy.

If you are struggling with deep tissue massage and clients looking for more pressure, this is the class for you. Cross fiber techniques break up adherent areas and the site-specific blood flow aids in rehydration and healing process.

At Advanced Corrective Therapies© we are committed to focusing on proper body mechanics in all classes. Your longevity as a massage therapist is dependent on efficient execution of massage strokes.

This is a great class to take prior to:

In the rapidly expanding field of massage therapy, concerns regarding ethical behavior and practice are also on the rise. Given the intimate setting of bodywork, it is crucial to establish a safe environment and a clear understanding between client and therapist as to what is expected. Therapists must also be able to effectively communicate within the parameters of each individual's unique personality, including their own.

The intent of this workshop is to define the broad scope of ethics, empower each therapist with their own personal Code of Ethics, and explore possible ethical situations which will challenge participants to make good decisions as to how they respond.

Prerequisites:
Class is open to all message therapy students and LMTs.

Please Bring:
Writing utensil, paper.
