Continual Professional Development workshops are available for Remedial Massage Therapists, Sports Massage Therapists and Massage Therapists. See below for a list of courses. Taught by a therapist who has trained to a high level with some of the best people in Britain.
Neck Assessment and Treatment
This course will teach how to assess and treat the neck safely and effectively. Assessment methods with the aim of differentiating between muscular and skeletal dysfunction will be taught, as well as a very simple method of assessing which muscles are likely to be implicated.
Lower Back Assessment and Treatment
On this course you will learn to assess and treat the lower back.
You will learn simple assessment techniques that will assist you in knowing when and how to treat a client, and when to refer.
You will learn assessment and soft tissue treatment of the sacroiliac joint and how to treat the back indirectly as well as directly.
In the extensive notes you will receive in advance of course commencement, there will be a detailed revision section on 8 muscles that have a strong influence on the back.
The bulk of the practical segment of the course will involve becoming conversant with assessment and investigation of the lower back and related pain symptoms, and learning how to treat the muscles included in the notes.
The course consists of 4 hours of practical and 2 hours of pre-course learning. The notes will be emailed before course commencement.
This course will ideally suit Sports Massage Therapists trained to or working towards level 4, and level 3 therapists are also welcome.
Muscle Energy Technique
MET is an essential tool in the toolkit of any physical therapist.
On this course you will learn to assess and treat muscular tightness as well as facilitate inhibited muscles by using muscle energy technique. You will learn to apply MET to over twenty of the most commonly treated muscles and muscle groups.
You will learn when to and when not to apply muscle energy techniques. The most common form of MET will be taught and for therapists already conversant in the application of MET, other forms (RI & isolytic) will be taught.
This course will ideally suit new or experienced massage and sports massage therapists alike.
