Day 1. Basic Medical Massage Techniques

Studying and practicing medical massage without a firm scientific understanding of Basic Medical Massage techniques and their clinical application is impossible. 

We will cover the science behind clinical variations of Medical Massage techniques developed by the Western School of Massage Therapy. Some presented techniques can be used as part of full-body massage sessions to build up a successful preventive massage therapy practice.  

Day 2. Medical Massage Protocol for Cervical Pain

During the class, we will cover anatomy, physiology, pathology, and examination of the major causes of tension in the posterior cervical muscles (Trapezius and Semispinalis Capitis) and Levator Scapulae muscles. Next, we will discuss the detailed evaluation of the soft tissues in the posterior neck and upper shoulders on a layer-by-layer basis. Finally, we will cover step-by-step Medical Massage Protocol to decompress skin, fascia, posterior cervical muscles, and periosteum in the posterior neck and upper shoulders.

Day 3. Medical Massage Protocols for Soft Tissue Trauma: Leg Compartment Syndrome and Plantar Fasciitis

During the first part of the class, we will teach therapists how to ‘read’ large hematomas to speed up tissue recovery and prevent side effects of soft tissue trauma: fascial adhesions and muscle shortenings.

In the second part of the class, we will cover evaluation and Medical Massage protocols for all Leg Compartment Syndromes and Plantar Fasciitis.
