Rehabilitative Massage

While it is often associated with recovery from sports injury, surgery or major trauma, rehabilitative massage can also be used to help people that suffer from chronic pain or musculoskeletal dysfunction. It is less intensive than orthopedic massage but still uses deep tissue techniques to promote healing.

Rehabilitative massage continuing education is unique in that most courses are focused on a particular technique, tool or physiological concern with few general overview courses available. These classes are moderate in length and an excellent choice for any bodyworker. Common courses include scar therapy, how to use kinesthetic taping and optimizing techniques like cross-fiber friction for spasm release. More in-depth courses may cover complex issues like oncology rehab or tackling phantom limb pain.
