Orthopedic Massage – Science-Based Program
Written by Linda Hoppe
To succeed as a massage therapist, you must be knowledgeable and intuitive. The science of the body requires a thorough understanding of the anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology of the musculoskeletal system.
The science of the body should be your priority, throughout your career. Not only to stay current but to make the most significant impact as a professional health care provider. Knowing the body allows you to better plan the treatments and will increase the positive outcomes for your clients.
As every client’s tissue reacts differently to manipulation, the better you understand tissue response to pressure, the specific effects of a technique, and the reasons why you should be using one method over another, are crucial elements for a successful massage therapy session.
Thinking of both the profession and clients, a team at Seminars for Health (Mara Boaru, Mike Horne and myself) created the Orthopedic Massage Certification program. During the development, we ensured that the science of the body would be an integral part of the program.
The 36-hour Orthopedic Massage Certification program includes nine different modules to cover the entire body where you will gain a detailed explanation of the anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology of the musculoskeletal system. As well as specific techniques used for massage treatments.
Each class has videos to support live demonstrations; these will aid with the learning process. There is not one single treatment I can think of, where I did not use muscle therapy on my clients.
Learn the modality that gets the results your clients are waiting for!
