Clinical Settings

Specializing in medical and rehabilitative massage often means working on-site in clinical settings. Adapting the challenges clinical settings pose is essential for success, and continuing education can give you a head start. Courses about clinical settings are geared toward specific conditions, medical practices and challenges medical massage specialists face.

In addition to learning treatment strategies, you can learn clinical assessment and documentation techniques as well as how to handle situations like post-surgical massage. Specialized courses are available for hospital, dentistry, chiropractic and hospice work. If you expect to working with clients that have physical challenges, consider learning side-lying massage and draping etiquette. Other courses discuss complex challenges like sanitation, cultural sensitivity and how to collaborate with healthcare providers.
