Description

This course will outline several deep tissue techniques to be applied to the body’s major muscle groups as well as the proper body mechanics required to perform them safely and effectively.  During the course the practitioner will also review the body’s major endangerment sites, the importance of bilateral work and palpation, and communication techniques for identifying and working within the client’s pain threshold.  Once the course is completed, the practitioner will have a greater knowledge of how to successfully access the deeper layers of muscle for the purposes of offering a more therapeutic approach to massage and bodywork.
