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.
