Day 1: Ultimate Medical / Deep Tissue Massage Series: Hip & Leg
Larry will teach you how to strip down the fascia and take the incessant pull off your client’s joints. This is a serious pain management for the hips and legs! An extraordinary massage is one where every part of the treatment stands out by itself as distinctively great. Our hip and leg work includes our unique Eastern and Western synergy giving the practitioner advanced skills for whatever situation that arises, from piriformis syndrome and sciatic pain to psoas, groin, quad, ham, knee, and right down to the Achilles and foot. You’ll be using your hands, forearms and elbows in new and unique ways with deep tissue trigger point work, sports massage, muscle sculpting and stripping, myofascial and meridian stretches, traction, and powerful shiatsu points. Come see why these techniques are routinely used by some of the most successful massage therapists internationally and truly begin to enjoy parts of your massage you might never have enjoyed doing before.
Day 2: Headaches and Medical Massage
Specializing in headaches can be a very good business decision, and an even better hands-on choice! Over 45 million Americans (about one in six) suffer chronic headaches each year. Headaches therefore have a big economic impact — when you have a throbbing pain in your head, it's hard to work. The cost of these headaches in absenteeism and medical expenses is estimated as high as $50 billion per year. Annually, people seeking treatment for headache pain account for 8 million consultations with physicians. There are multiple causes of headaches and while most of these causes are not in the domain of massage therapy, tension and structural causes which account for many, are. Join us for a comprehensive look at headaches and a surefire treatment plan for headache sufferers regardless of the cause. We have created a sophisticated massage therapy protocol for headache relief combining medical massage techniques like trigger point therapy, connective, and deep tissue bodywork with traditional shiatsu for the neck, shoulders and upper back.
