There is a prevalence of overuse injuries and fractures, ailments are magnified in this intricate area. With the addition and dependency of electronic devices, everyone is in need of a therapeutic treatment.


 

Repetitive and overuse of electronic devices clearly affect everyone, even if they don’t know it. Muscle imbalances and premature wear-and-tear of the joints, possibly leading to nerve compression. Bring awareness to unknown potential conditions before it becomes problematic. This can be treated optimally with Orthopedic Massage. OM Therapists excel at providing a specific protocol to best target the muscle belly, the tendon and musculotendinous junction. Get results by providing uplifting and preventative care with OM techniques.

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.
