In this advanced massage course, you will build upon previous knowledge, skills and experience of massage therapy, with particular focus on using additional assessment techniques and advanced massage skills to address dysfunctional tissue, derived from lifestyle, posture and the general aging process.

This course will introduce the relevant skills, knowledge and understanding needed to gather and analyse information elicited during subjective and objective client assessments.
This will include exploration of the factors that may predispose clients to imbalance and dysfunction and how factors may influence the client’s ability or willingness to rebalance and reasons for referral/deferral. A number of objective assessment techniques are introduced to include detailed assessment of soft tissue and muscle testing. To underpin the new range of objective tests, the bony and soft structures of the major joints of the body are revisited to give you a greater anatomical understanding and to facilitate practical application.
You will also evaluate the range of objective testing as to the appropriateness and value of the information they elicit. You will be able to utilise your new toolbox of skills and understanding to tailor your massage treatments to your individual client needs to promote restoration of dysfunctional tissue, health, balance and wellbeing. Massage techniques you will cover include trigger points, Muscle energy techniques, connective tissue and Soft tissue release.

Being a martial arts practitioner for over 34 years and an Instructor for 13 years holding 3 Black Belts in 3 disciplines, it is nice to actually help treat people rather than teaching someone to defend, or fight.
