Instructor: Jim EARLEY, LMT, NCBTMB

8CEs

Date: Sunday, October 25, 2020

Time: 9:00AM-5:30PM

Students will learn techniques to add to their skill sets as massage therapists and sports massage therapists.

This includes learning:

  • Gua Sha (Graston, muscle scraping) techniques on the upper and lower body
  • Proper foam rolling techniques
  • Proper use of lacrosse balls to break up adhesions and use of other tools for the therapist including percussion tools such as the Hypervolt
  • Proper Active Isolated Stretching (to use on clients and for self-care).

These skills are designed to give the therapist added skills to use on themselves for self-care and for their clients.

Note: Students will receive a Graston tool and a stretching strap.

Supplies:  Students should bring sheets, lubricants (gel, lotion). Also, students should wear loose clothing and shorts. The class will be very participative.
