Injury Recovery Massage Toolkit - July 21 & 22, 2018
by Terrie Yardley-Nohr, LMT
Massage therapists are faced with clients every day that have been injured in some way and are seeking help from pain and dysfunction. A therapist is faced with figuring out what is wrong and what to do about it. One of the biggest challenges for new therapists in the field is how to address the client’s needs and provide relief. This boils down to two specific skills: assessment and appropriate therapeutic response. Obviously, skills are developed over time and through experience. Additional training, however, can radically accelerate the development of a skill set.
There are hundreds of different applications available to add to a massage therapist’s toolbox. It is important for a therapist to know what structures to address in common injuries and client complaints. Carpal tunnel, whiplash (neck and shoulder injuries) and low back injuries are the most requested areas for relief for a massage therapist. Once a therapist understand the dynamics of these types of issues, it becomes easy to decide on the areas and applications to use.
The Injury Recovery Massage Toolkit is designed to hone therapists skills to assess and treat these common injuries. As part of the Medical Massage Fundamentals Pro Track, the workshop focuses on modalities that every therapist should have at the ready. Book clients with the confidence that you will have the knowledge to help them, and know how to not further aggravate the injury.
Come prepared to learn a great deal and have great information and applications to treat your clients with!
