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 with their class tuition.

Supplies:  Students should bring sheets, lubricants (gel, lotion). Also, students should wear loose clothing and shorts. The class will be very participative.  Please be prepared to wear your mask while you are in class.
