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

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 Protocols for Lower Back Pain (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, and rotators.
