Kinetic Massage of the Shoulder
|Sat||Mar 7||9am – 5pm|
Do you want to treat not only the muscles but the joints of the shoulder region?
Kinetic Massage courses are about getting your clients to move the way their bodies were intended to, all while preserving your own body mechanics. By understanding anatomy and correct positioning, your clients will return with the confidence that they are secure and achieving results.
To enhance your clients’ therapeutic experience, Kinetic Massage provides you with an active technique using both joint movements and massage strokes. Kinetic Massage of the Shoulder course consists of massaging with very precise movements to target not only the muscles but also the joints. It incorporates specific massage strokes with dynamic joint movement. This is an excellent advanced approach with proven results that your clients will strongly benefit from.
There will be a review of the anatomy of the shoulder region followed by a demonstration in prone, supine and side-lying positions. Specific muscles will be targeted for very precise therapy. These techniques are optimal for treating stubborn pathologies such as rotator cuff injuries and thoracic outlet syndrome.
You will never look at or treat the shoulder the same way again. Your clients will be pleased with the results.
Join us, your clients WILL feel the difference.

Become a Kinetic Massage Therapist
I wanted to take Pregnancy and Postnatal Massage with Seminars for Health to become more confident in treating pregnant and postpartum women as my college didn’t touch on this at all. I honestly feel that a lot of therapist leave school scared and too nervous to treat pregnant and postpartum women. I actively avoided it. Janine does a great job of dispelling the misinformation that’s out there regarding pregnancy and massage. Her knowledge and experience is vast and fills you with confidence. She showed some great techniques and made sure everyone was super confident with the sidelying positioning, draping and bolstering. The booklet we used and took home is great and really useful. I’ve been taking it with me when I have a maternity or postpartum massage just for reference. It gives you all of the contraindications and cautions to watch out for broken down into trimester as well as safe positioning and techniques to use for each trimester. All in all I feel 100 times more confident since taking the course and I feel like clients feel more cofident in you when you know the right questions to ask and understand the issues facing pregnant and postpartum women. I would highly recommend this course to all therapists! Pregnant women aren’t scary and they need massage and support more than anyone.
