The hip joint is one of the most vital joints of our body. It is a large weight bearing joint that attaches femur to the pelvis. The top end of the femur is round like a ball and it is fitted into the socket of the pelvis joint. It is an extremely important joint, as it bears the entire body weight and allows the body to walk, run, and sit. The hip is a very strong structure, but still can be damaged. When it suffers injury or degeneration, then it gives rise to hip and leg pain.
A combination of techniques, performed by an experienced massage therapist, can provide pain relief and help recovery. Deep tissue massage when carried out with Swedish massage releases tension from the deeper muscles and connective tissues in the hip and leg.
This one-day workshop is designed for qualified massage therapists who wish to gain greater skills and knowledge about deep tissue massage techniques.
