SEMINAR PROGRAM

We changed our Medical Massage seminar settings: 

  1. SOMI seminars are highly curated and limited. We, therefore, aspire to work with therapists dedicated to the clinical application of Massage Therapy and who are going to be decisive in-patient care. If you are looking only for CEU’s please consider other educational sources to give space to committed candidates.  
  2. We are moving to smaller class sizes to provide therapists with more personal attention and expedite their professional growth in the Medical Massage field.
  3. We will offer some online classes to help therapists finish their Medical Massage Certification program sooner.
  4. We encourage therapists who already took SOMI’s seminars to get in touch with our instructors and our former and current students for ongoing support and clinical guidance in complex treatment cases.

 

Saturday:  Introduction to Medical Massage from Theory to Application. 

The first day of lecture opens the door to the clinical application of Medical Massage. The goal is to build a mental vision of the Medical Massage Concept based on the best scientific data available up to date. We only present referenced scientific data.  

Sunday: Medical Massage Protocol for Osteoarthritis Hands-On Training Course

The second day of the class covers Osteoarthritis (OA) and the chain of pathological events which trigger OA. We will first discuss how to evaluate the soft tissues and joints affected by OA. Afterward, we will showcase the hands-on application of a Medical Massage protocol used to decompress any affected joints and diminish or stop the destructive processes within the cartilage and subchondral bone.

Monday: 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.

 

SOMI’s CEU training program has been tested by Saybrook University where the United States’ first PhD in Medical Massage was awarded to our former student Dr. Karen Moody, PhD, CMMP, LMT. SOMI’s Medical Massage protocols are being successfully used in major hospitals and medical institutions such as the Barrow Neurological Institute, Dignity Health, St. Joseph’s Hospital & Medical Centers among others. Our publications are widely used by the Integrative Medicine Department of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester as well as universities, colleges and massage schools across the nation
