Event Description

Forearm Fusion was designed to teach the massage therapist how to use maximum pressure with minimal effort and strain, preventing repetitive use injuries and burnout. The Forearm Fusion massage course in Pottstown will teach new and seasoned therapists foundations for improving body mechanics and how to use all aspects of the forearm and elbow. These techniques will allow the therapist to provide their client with a custom massage without using their hands or thumbs.

About the Instructor

Jim has been a massage therapist for more than 26 years and has been teaching massage techniques for 20 years. Jim noticed that some of his students were ending their massage careers, not because they wanted to, but because they felt their bodies could no longer perform a quality massage. Jim realized that many of these therapists were leaving the profession because they had not utilized body saving techniques. He saw many therapists using only their hands and fingers and not using their forearms. With this in mind, Jim developed Forearm Fusion. Jim also owns the Academy of Massage Therapy and Bodyworks in Pottstown, PA. NCBTMB Approved Provider # 451761-11

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage forms the backbone of most massage practices, and by expanding your skill repertoire, you can improve your sessions and set yourself apart from other massage therapists. Courses on specific areas of the body, such as the neck or rotator cuff, may be the most common, but continuing education has much more to offer for deep tissue practitioners.

Some deep tissue CE classes cover techniques that are only possible through deep tissue work, such as releasing the ribcage for better breathing. Modalities like neuromuscular therapy can make your sessions more effective and help you specialize your practice. If you perform a lot of deep tissue therapy, consider courses covering forearm-only massage or the use to tools to reduce hand strain.
