Is there anything more debilitating than pain? That deep, nagging discomfort that just won’t shift, no matter what. This common complaint leaves many therapists perplexed and many clients achieving only temporary relief.
In this two day course we will examine some of the many cases of shoulder pain and learn new techniques that might help deal with the discomfort and help prevent recurrence. Along with the lower back it is an area where relief can be felt most immediately.

Deep Tissue Massage
During the course, students will also learn the techniques of delivering deep tissue massage, not only to the shoulder area, but also to the upper and lower back – another area where clients are in need of effective deeper massage.

Remedial Massage Techniques
We will also be exploring palpation and client observation skills, as well as identifying and dealing with troublesome trigger points, allowing the student to learn new ways of providing pain relief and to treat  lack of mobility, again providing effective relief to their clients.
