Myofascial Release

A popular continuing education choice, myofascial release is a modality that aims to relax tense, constricted fascia surrounding soft tissue. Whether caused by overuse, inactivity or an underlying condition like trauma or disease, the constricted fascia can contribute to muscle tension, poor circulation and referred pain. Practitioners use a light touch and slow motions to “release” constriction in myofascial release sessions or as part of a routine. Expect to find both broad overview and targeted technique programs, including pediatrics, women’s health and approaching illnesses like fibromyalgia.

Pediatric Massage

A form of adapted massage, pediatric massage is geared toward reducing stress and helping with physical conditions that can be difficult for children to manage. Training in pediatric techniques will help you modify your routines to fit a child’s physical and cognitive development as well as any health concerns. Sessions can be done solo, but some modalities promote bodyworkers and parents working together to encourage parent-child bonding.

General pediatric continuing education will teach you the necessary assessment and adapted touch techniques you need to work with children. To work with children under the age of three, specialized infant massage training is recommended. Once you know the base techniques, you can learn to help children with conditions like cancer, attention deficit disorders, trauma and asthma.
