This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.
This seminar focuses on the table stretches that are an integral part of rehabilitative and Swedish massage. Skilled stretching techniques re-educate muscles and restore healthy resting lengths, as well as add variety to a bodywork session.
Postural issues are the root cause of most chronic muscular/skeletal conditions. Muscles that are locked short (hyper-tonic muscles) are a principal factor in these conditions. Your clients may be trying to correct their posture, but muscles with short resting lengths are impeding their efforts. When a muscle is injured, its resting length shortens. Failure to integrate skilled stretching results in continued joint compression, re-injury and frustration.
This one-day seminar focuses on a part of massage therapy that is frequently left out -- the table stretches that are an integral part of rehabilitative and Swedish massage. Skilled stretching techniques re-educate muscles and restore healthy resting lengths, as well as add variety to a bodywork session. With proper body mechanics, stretching is easy on the therapist's body and decreases strain on the hands. Stretching also adds an element of expansion into a bodywork session for both the therapist and the client. When we're stretched we feel longer, wider, more alive. This course is a must for any therapist interested in helping their clients attain a more relaxed, injury-free state.
