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.
