Day 1: Facilitated Stretching 

Course Description: Many massage therapists would like to include effective stretches in their client sessions but feel they don’t have the training or expertise to perform the stretches correctly. In this seminar, you’ll acquire the the training to include a repertoire of useful stretches in your sessions.

Facilitated Stretching is a safe, simple, yet dramatically effective stretching technique that can be used with a wide variety of clients to regain or improve flexibility. It’s easy to learn and to incorporate into your current massage practice. Facilitated stretching, combined with soft tissue work, will enable the practitioner to obtain greater overall success in client treatment sessions. Additionally, a program of self-stretching using these techniques can be invaluable for clients in their home stretching programs. Recommended Text: Facilitated Stretching, 4th edition Robert E.

Day 2: Sports Massage Approaches for Treating Lower Extremity Musculoskeletal Injuries

Course Description: Massage therapists have the ability to work with soft tissue injuries in a way that few other practitioners do. That’s why athletes and active individuals experiencing chronic conditions seek out their massage therapists to help them recover. Sports massage techniques are widely used to address musculoskeletal complaints and are a valuable adjunct to the repertoire of any massage therapist interested in treating injuries. This 8-hour seminar focuses on a variety of chronic injuries that respond well to clinically-oriented sports massage, including • Hamstring tendinopathy • IT Band Syndrome • Chronic ankle sprain • Achilles tendinopathy • Fibularis tendinopathy.

The format for discussion, demonstration, and practice is organized the same for each of these conditions:

  1. Introduction to the condition, typical history, signs and symptoms, review the relevant anatomy
  2. Demonstrate and practice assessment, including appropriate orthopedic and special tests
  3. Demonstrate and practice palpation examination
  4. Demonstrate and practice each element of the suggested treatment plan, then integrate them all in a “session.”
  5. Review self-care options for the client, including exercise and flexibility work
  6. Discuss perpetuating factors

The hands-on portion of this seminar includes a range of applications, including compressive effleurage and petrissage, broad cross-fiber work, longitudinal stripping, pin and stretch techniques, isolytic contractions, deep transvers friction, and facilitated stretching.
