Event Description

In all segments of this course, 7 modules total, participants will review the structures, terminology and concepts related to human movement.  Joint structure and function will also be discussed and both active and passive joint ranges of motion practiced.  Extensive hands-on work is done in this course to address various common pathologies and chronic injuries related to the region of the body. Practical hands-on therapeutic massage experience of the skeletal and muscular systems and how the two systems work together to create movement and how the body may respond when injury is present, will lend confidence with palpation and techniques to address them. Techniques for each region may include but are not limited to variations of neuromuscular techniques, myofascial techniques, contemporary Western style therapeutic massage techniques, manual lymphatic drainage,  cupping, stretching/ movement, creative draping for client safety and comfort, advanced techniques for side-lying positions, and appropriate communication with the client.

Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular therapy (NMT), sometimes called trigger point therapy, is a targeted, deep tissue massage technique. Concentrated pressure is applied to key points in order to relieve muscle spasms. It is often combined with other techniques as part of a deep tissue session.

While regular deep tissue massage is meant to alleviate general, chronic muscle tension, NMT is mean to address postural problems, nerve compression, ischemia and improper biomechanics. Referred pain, or dysfunction in one area causing issues in others, is often addressed with NMT. Neuromuscular therapy CEU courses will teach you how to identify common trigger points and referred pain as well as how to approach them without pain or bruising.
