A Great Protocol to Add Variety Before a Table Massage!

This is a three-day, 2-hour class offering 6 CEs. The class is for LMTs of all levels and offers Thai Massage techniques targeting the upper body. The student will learn Thai massage techniques using a massage chair, offering the therapist a marketing opportunity to provide Thai massage in diverse settings (road races, airports, street fairs, nail salons, etc.). Each class starts with an assessment. Afterward, students pair up and take turns practicing the lesson in tandem with the instructor, allowing time to practice and receive the work of each lesson. The sequence focuses on the upper back and shoulders, engaging the fascia following a systematic sequence designed to reduce tension in the trapezius, rhomboid, and paraspinal muscles. Students will learn to assess the back and shoulders within a brief protocol which can be easily extrapolated into an effective 10-minute stand-alone treatment, including ROM techniques using acupressure points. Each class is a stand-alone lesson that offers specialized treatments catering to people with hard-working hands. Students may benefit from repeating classes since each class is tailored for the students in class that day with protocols constantly evolving. As an alternative to the full 3-part series, students may attend a single class with the opportunity to earn 6CEs upon completion of all 3 classes in the series.

Prerequisite: The course is open to licensed massage therapists. Please bring a flat sheet and loose-fitting or flexible clothing.
