Day 1. Medical Massage Protocol for Anterior Scalene Muscle Syndrome/Thoracic Outlet 

The Anterior Scalene Muscle Syndrome (ASMS) is nicknamed the “Silent Killer” in somatic medicine. In clinical reality, ASMS can quietly trigger everything from Headaches to Middle Back Pain and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. To isolate and quickly decompress the ASM means controlling the many pathological conditions in the upper body.  

During this course, we will discuss the unique pathology of ASMS, its evaluation, identification, and an effective treatment protocol that decisively eliminates anterior neck tension and decompresses the brachial plexus. 

Day 2. Medical Massage Protocol for Lower Back Pain (a.k.a. Lumbalgia) 

Lower Back Pain (LBP) is a general name for many syndromes that contribute to this widespread pathology. In other words, it is a multifaced enemy. Clinical success depends on the ability of the therapist to correctly identify and target the initial triggers rather than secondary syndromes, which are frequently the most prominent. 

During this course, we will cover the anatomy and pathology of the lumbar area, necessary evaluation and testing skills to develop correct treatment strategy for tension in the Lumbar Erectors, Quadratus Lumborum muscle, Sacroiliac Joint and Rotators.  

Day 3. Medical Massage Protocols for Tensor Fascia Lata Muscle and the Iliotibial Band (IT Band) Hands-On Training Course 

The third day of the class covers the most frequent cause of pain and dysfunction in the lateral hip and knee joints as well as the lateral aspect of the thigh. The class begins with the anatomy and physiology of the Tensor Fascia Lata Muscle and the Iliotibial Band (IT Band). 

Afterward, we discuss possible causes of tension in the Tensor Fascia Lata Muscle and evaluate all soft tissue aspects on a layer-by-layer basis. The rest of the day is dedicated to hands-on training in Medical Massage Protocol to restore the function of the Tensor Fascia Lata muscle and the IT Band.
