This is an IN-PERSON, 4-hour class. NJ massage therapists and chiropractors may earn 4 CEUs. *
Educate your clients/patients to be active participants by explaining how body parts work individually and in conjunction with the body as a whole, showing them what musculoskeletal imbalances they are experiencing, how imbalances effect muscles and soft tissue and talking about how to overcome the imbalance.
This class will cover verbal and visual assessment of the upper and lower body biomechanical (kinetic) chains and how to address possible faults and eliminate sources of pain through guided stretches and exercises. Assessment takes into consideration past injuries and surgeries, level of physical activity, and much more.
Hands-on learning includes palpating massage, myofascial self-massage, stretching, and strengthening exercises.
