Anatomy & Physiology
A basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology is necessary in learning the theory and practice of therapeutic massage. Students will study the structures and functions of the human body in order to know when, where, and how to apply massage movements for the most beneficial results. Students will also study Medical Terminology and Contraindications. These classes are presented in a way that makes it easy and fun for the student to learn.
Business Practices & Marketing
This class gives students the skills needed to begin and promote a successful massage practice. Some of the subjects discussed are: business cards, licensing, places of possible employment, types of clients you would like to work on and much more. This is the class where all your questions are answered.
Basic techniques of chair massage and a “15 minute” therapeutic chair massage routine will be demonstrated and practiced. Simple business ideas for massage will be discussed and students will learn First Aid tips for chair massage. This modality is becoming highly popular and can be offered on-site at offices, health food stores, marathons, schools, and more.
Health/Hygiene & Ethics
This class will give the students the knowledge needed to protect themselves and their clients through health and hygiene. Ethics of massage therapy will also be studied and discussed.
Music & Massage
This innovative class focuses on an important element of a professional massage therapist’s practice: the music. Experience the effects of various genres of music on freedom and style of body movement, fluidity, emotion, and memory. Learn invaluable information about how music affects our movement and flow.
The Facial Web (Structural Bodywork)
This class introduces a therapeutic model of bodywork, a category referred to as structural bodywork. It introduces the student to a specialized approach to doing deeper massage work. This work can stand alone as modalities like deep tissue, myofascial release and sports massage, or can be integrated into a wellness therapy such as Swedish massage. Benefits can include increased range of motion, ease of movement, improved posture, increased healing of injured areas, and increased athletic performance.
Massage therapy is an ancient healing art. This course focuses on the power of touch and how massage affects the mind, body and spirit and helps to facilitate the body’s healing process. The importance of Health & Hygiene, Indications and Contraindications for massage is also studied. The emphasis of the practical training is a 50-minute and a 80-minute, full-body Swedish massage routine. The five basic Swedish strokes are taught: effleurage, petrissage, friction, vibration and tapotement, and their variations. Students not only learn the basics of massage; but also are encouraged to develop their own style. Interrelated topics are also taught during Swedish classes including: meditation as a tool for massage therapists to help in calming the mind and focusing before a session; and breathwork techniques and guided dialogue to expand your capacity for freedom, power, and joy; and, movement awareness, giving you a conscious experience of lasting ease and relaxation in your body. These skills are essential to training and needed in order to help others through massage and deep tissue work.
