The Trigger Point Therapy Course is designed for you to enhance and refine your palpation skills. You will learn how to locate and treat trigger points in the skeletal muscles and in the muscle's fascia. Trigger Point Therapy can be easily incorporated into your treatment programs, especially your neck, shoulder and lower back routines.

LYMPHATIC MASSAGE

The lymphatic system is the major drainage system of the body. It plays a key role in the surveillance and defense of the body, it functions in immune response, it assists in the maintenance of fluid balance by draining fluid from the tissues, and returning vital substances back to the blood stream.

In this hands-on course you will learn skills to assist the functioning of this vital system, and skills to enhance your clients treatments. You will gain knowledge of the functions of the Lymphatic System, diseases and effects of poor Lymphatic performance and contraindications. To assist your clients' sense of wellbeing and recovery you will gain competency in various techniques.

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE THERAPY 1

Myofascial Release will introduce you to a fascinating system of working with the framework of the body which is held together by fascia. You will be aware that fascial tissue surrounds and fuses with every structure of the body, enveloping muscles, organs and nerves. You will gain an understanding of how fascia can inhibit muscular function even after you have applied your massage skills to an area.

PREGNANCY MASSAGE

Designed for massage therapists who would like to feel confident massaging a pregnant client. The workshop aims to provide a solid theoretical background as well as useful and safe hands on skills to support pregnant women.

ONCOLOGY MASSAGE

Research has dispelled old beliefs that massage can spread cancer cells throughout the body via the lymphatic system. Research shows that comfort-oriented massage does not contribute to the spread of cancer rather that cancer is a result of genetic mutations (changes to a cell's DNA) and other processes in the body.

Fortunately,that now allows for caring, comforting and support for cancer patients, people at the end of life and cancer survivors.

In this course you will learn about:
- Common cancers, qualities of cancer cells
- The cancer disease process
- Genetics
- Radiotherapy and chemotherapy and adjusting massage techniques
- Consulting with health professionals
- How treating clients with a life threatening illness can impact on you
