“How to do deep tissue massage

easily and effectively”

 

This is a 3 hour hands on class!  It has been stated many times that massage is hard work and that several massage therapists quit after a few years because they hurt.  Experienced therapists may tell new therapists, “you will hurt from doing massage; its just part of the business.”  Those who say that are wrong.  The only way you will hurt from doing massage is if you have a pre-existing condition or if you massage incorrectly.  The common pains from massage are: Neck pain/Thumb pain/wrist pain/back soreness.  Why does this happen?   Why this class?  What we are teaching is awareness & approach, along with the mechanics specific to your body type.  

You should bring:

  • Massage chair – 2 people per chair
  • Face cradle covers
  • Cleaning solution for chair
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Massage lotion/cream
