Event Description

When people hurt, their pain affects everything. It impacts daily activities, quality of life, and their social and professional relationships. Massage therapists are uniquely positioned to help people understand, manage, and perhaps overcome their pain. Understanding current pain science and how to use that knowledge in practice can enhance the effectiveness of massage therapy sessions and facilitate interprofessional communications with medical professionals.

This seminar introduces important concepts from pain science to help massage therapists understand the neurology of pain and how to use that knowledge in practice. This class includes discussion of the nervous system and how it interrelates with the rest of the body, providing a framework of understanding that may enhance all forms of massage and bodywork.

These applications reflect a structured, interactive approach to manual therapy that considers the nervous system of the patient from skin cell to sense of self. The goal is pain reduction. Hands-on applications include positioning of limbs and torso to affect deeper nerve trunks, and is combined with skin stretch/movement to affect cutaneous fields of nerves that branch outward into skin. Included are simple ways of explaining the nervous system and pain mechanisms to patients prior to treatment, plus some simple, effective ways to get clients in pain to start moving with greater ease and confidence. Client and therapist self-care are also discussed.

Therapeutic Massage

In terms of continuing education, therapeutic massage is a catch-all term for any massage technique that does not fall under a broad modality. Courses in this area are often geared toward improving your overall massage sessions or teaching lesser-known modalities. You can pick up new techniques, learn to use new tools or take foundation courses in new modalities.

Practical anatomy lessons and treatment protocols for specific muscle groups, conditions, and areas of the body are the most common therapeutic massage CE courses. Interesting approaches like two massage therapists working in tandem and integrative massage, combining multiple modalities in a single session, are also taught. You may be able to find courses in resort massage and branded modalities as well.
