This course is designed to focus on the skillful application of myofascial and soft tissue techniques that will allow deeper access to the fascia and muscular layers of the body. This comprehensive combination and layering of techniques will create long term results and generate a greater sense of relief from chronic muscular tension. Chronic muscular tension patterns can reduce blood flow and restrict the removal of metabolic wastes, resulting in pain and loss of function. Typical superficial and passive massage techniques often do not provide the desired relief; this can be frustrating for the client as well as the therapist and it can actually cause more reflexive muscular tension. The practitioner will learn treatment strategies that are direct, purposeful, and easy to apply with the intended purpose of releasing these muscular tension patterns. The practicing therapist will learn how to use:  tissue recognition, myofascial release, cross-fiber friction, passive movement, neurological inhibition, breath and positioning to enhance the overall effectiveness of each technique. The ultimate goal is reaching the desired treatment outcome, securing longevity and feeling a sense of personal satisfaction from bodywork that is ‘practitioner friendly’ and effortless to apply.

Prerequisites:  This course is open to massage therapists who with to learn more on the topic.

Please bring:  1 set of sheets, face cradle cover, pillow w/pillowcase, hand towel, unscented lotion/cream, and note taking supplies.
