Validated by IPTI - (Independent Professional Therapists International)

Accredited by Embody
 

This workshop is designed for practitioners, qualified in any form of Body Massage Therapy.

Shoulder pain is a common condition that can affect people in all walks of life and during anytime in their lifetime. It is also very common in older people and is of course due to the aging process that affects the joints, making them more susceptible to the stresses and weight bearing that is constantly being placed on the shoulder joints. This is compounded by the highly mobile, and complex movements that are involved in the upper limbs.

Because of the complex makeup of the shoulder joint, these complex movements make the shoulder extremely vulnerable to sprains, strains, tears and inflammation of the capsules, muscles, ligaments and bursa that are involved in the make-up of the joint itself. Such conditions can be treated well with deep tissue massage.

This 1-day workshop is designed for qualified massage therapists who wish to gain greater skills and knowledge about deep tissue massage techniques.

This workshop is designed to give you more tools and techniques for identifying and upper limb conditions and expanding your massage repertoire, possibly giving you the confidence to expand your client base.
