Do you have clients with chronic neck and upper back pain or with sciatica and chronic low back pain?  Wonder why they don’t get relief from working the areas that hurt?  This course will allow you to alleviate and sometimes eliminate these issues for your clients.
Each morning will learn ways to ask the client to actively engage muscles to improve your palpation skills and help you isolate specific muscles in each area, making your work more efficient and effective. Afternoons will include a demonstration of techniques for the hip or shoulder girdle, and then an exchange to practice and receive the work. Emphasis will be on discovering the source of the problem and treating that, rather than just addressing symptoms.
As with all my Deep Tissue courses, we will focus on techniques that help you give more pressure with less effort.

Easy Deep Tissue - More Pressure, Less Effort - 12 CE

Do your hands or wrists hurt after a deep tissue massage?  Do you find yourself exhausted at the end of a long day of massage?  Do you love being a massage therapist but worry you will have to quit soon because your body just can’t handle it any more?  If you answered “YES!” to one or more of these questions then this class is for you.
When we have finished you will have a solid understanding of how to safely and productively use your body as a tool to deliver deep tissue massage; you will have practiced palpation skills with your fists, forearms and elbows and have more confidence in using these tools regularly in your work setting; and you will be able to deliver more pressure with less effort.
Therapists who have taken this course say they no longer hurt and they feel like they could practice forever.

“I used more pressure in the 2 days with Melissa in her Easy Deep Tissue class than I have in the past 2 years. The best part is that I didn’t feel any pain anywhere in my body afterwards. I feel so empowered after taking Melissa’s class!”  – Kelly S., LMBT

“I took Melissa’s easy deep tissue class a few weeks back.  I was already a strong deep tissue therapist, but I always like learning new ways to use my body more efficiently.  I learned several new techniques that felt great to my body as a therapist.  I asked a few of my regulars what their thoughts were and they loved the new techniques!  The neck work was, “the best you’ve done on me!” said one client.  I will definitely use these new tools I’ve learned in my continued practice.”  – Josh R., LMBT
