about the course

Key Findings and Why They Matter in Your Practice

 

Most of us got a few nuggets of massage research in massage school, and we learned a lot about the effects of massage (e.g. "massage breaks up adhesions'). But based on the best evidence, many things that we were taught are just not true, or the mechanisms are different than we thought.

 

What really happens when we do massage? This 7-hour class provides you with up-to-date findings on massage therapy research and a better way to use those findings to increase your effectiveness and boost your everyday massage practice.

 

How does massage really work?

  • Does massage therapy "flush toxins"?  What do we mean by words like these?

  • Does massage therapy relieve muscle soreness? How?

  • What are massage therapy's effects on pain, inflammation, and perception?

  • Surprising findings on massage therapy's effectiveness in the treatment of anxiety, depression, chronic pain, visceral adhesions, and immune function

  • Cutting-edge science on fascia: its behavior, disease processes, and diagnostics
