• Have you been qualified for some time or have you recently qualified and want to take your massage further?
• Are you being contacted by clients that have some form of arthritis, one of the many, many different types, or other degenerative diseases? The list could include neurological or musculoskeletal conditions.
• Do you feel you may not have the confidence, knowledge or skills to work with this client group?

If you answer yes to any of the above then this could be the course for you. Your confidence will improve, your knowledge will grow and your clients will be delighted.

People suffering from arthritis are all too familiar with the aches, discomforts, and pains that the disease can cause. There are over one hundred different types of arthritis and each type is accompanied by the pain and inflammation that can be a major disruption to someone’s life. Recent studies on the effects of massage for arthritis symptoms have shown regular massage led to improvements in pain, stiffness, range of motion, hand grip strength and overall function of the joints.

Traditional massage methods may treat many types of pain well, but these massage methods may do nothing for an arthritic patient. At its worst, misusing traditional massage methods while attempting to treat arthritis pain can lead to more complications and pain. With the right training and knowledge you will be able to offer comfort through massage to many clients suffering with arthritis.
