With the evolving health care system in this country, massage therapists are being called upon more than ever to assist and support patients in post operative settings as early as possible. This workshop takes the practitioner through the acute, subacute, and chronic phases of post operative clinical settings, with detailed approaches and techniques best suited to effectively handling surgical recovery situations.

Using all the tools in a massage therapist’s arsenal within the scope of practice can seem an intimidating prospect. However, after completing this workshop, you will feel confident working within therapeutic guidelines to help your patients get from the early stages of pain management, through complete recovery and maintenance treatment. Techniques such as Manual Lymph Drainage, Hydrotherapy concepts, & using the basics of first aid, such as elevation, to improve a client’s condition are emphasized. In addition, which manual techniques are appropriate, and at what stages to apply them is covered in detail, with practitioners spending most of the day in hands-on practice of these exciting concepts!
There will be a half-hour lunch break, so students may want to bring a bagged lunch and eat in the student lounge.

Required Materials: 2 sheets (1 fitted, 1 top sheet), 1 towel, 1 pillowcase, pen and paper, sports bra and shorts. Also bring Atlas of Human Anatomy by Netter or an equivalent anatomy textbook or application. $30 fee payable to instructor for workshop DVD (optional).

Payments Accepted: Cash, Cheque, or Credit Card
