What is Orthopedic Massage (OM)?

Specifics of each Advanced OM course
Fundamentals of Orthopedic Massage: Prepare yourself towards your journey of OM certification. Learn the fundamental steps involved to this superior approach created by Seminars for Health. This path will give you the foundation to confidently begin your OM practice. Incorporate this methodology, become transformed and reach your true potential. Once you understand these principles, bring them into your practice to become the best you can be. Be satisfied that you are making the greatest difference with Orthopedic Massage.
Advanced OM of the Forearm, Wrist and Hand: Repetitive and overused 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 specific protocol to best target the muscle belly, the tendon and musculotendinous junction. Get results by providing uplifting and preventative care with OM techniques.
Advanced OM of the Anterior Neck: People are living with constant pain and searching for relief. Achieve best results by regaining segmental C-spine upper and lower mobility to reduce muscle load. An OM therapist gains essential anatomical knowledge and execution of targeted advanced techniques. Understand comprehensible steps to perform a safe and effective treatment. Expertly perform the most precise, safe Longus Colli release technique created by Seminars for Health. Specialize in the highest demand body region, the neck.
Advanced OM of the Posterior Neck: Too often people endure constant pain and are in need of relief. The complex neck is vulnerable and prone to injuries. Forward positioning of the head is epidemic. Achieve results by identifying affected postural structures through precise palpation with confidence. Orthopedic Massage provides optimal recovery, eliminating the extreme tension while maintaining stability. Provide the ability to access deep and superficial posterior neck muscles with OM practices. Obtain lasting relief for clients suffering from postural strain, whiplash, tension headache and stiff neck.
Advanced OM of the Chest and Anterior Shoulder: Forward positioning of the body is epidemic. Your Orthopedic Massage will powerfully influence this growing problem by restoring chest expansion and correcting shoulder alignment. Release and minimize the persistent upper body tension linked to forward positioning. Resolve the conditions rooted with postural alignment issues. Transform your client’s overall health. (Clients who can especially benefit: Office workers, hair stylists, dental hygienists, office workers, teenagers and massage therapists)
