What is Advanced Orthopedic Massage?
Advanced Orthopedic Massage is based on the principle of massaging with respect to the musculature’s anatomy. You will be presented with concepts created by your instructor such as: muscle base, scooping and vector of force. Additionally, because the body is designed to move, a strong emphasis of this course is on moving the joints to produce the desired effect - a return to health. Enhance your skills to massage like an orthopaedic surgeon, with precision and results.
