Therapy workshop

Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of normalizing those tissues and consists of a group of manual techniques that include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and/or causing movement to parts of the body. While massage therapy is applied primarily with the hands, sometimes the forearms or elbows are used. These techniques affect the muscular, skeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, nervous, and other systems of the body. The basic philosophy of massage therapy embraces the concept of vis Medicatrix naturae , which means "aiding the ability of the body to heal itself.

We will be focusing on this massage training and each student can take part in all or any of the classes listed below and note that this event is online, and will be held on a private channel.

- Swedish Massage Therapy: The Swedish Massage is the most widely known and used style of massage therapy. The name “Swedish Massage” is only used in English and Dutch speaking nations — all other countries refer to it as a “classic massage.” Either way, this method was developed, though inaccurately, by Per Henrik Ling. However, it was a Dutchman named Johann Georg Mezger that developed the French terms for the basic strokes of the massage style.

 

- Active Release Therapy: Active Release Therapy/Technique (ART) was developed nearly thirty years ago by Dr. P. Michael Leahy. The idea of Active Release Therapy originated for elite athletes to return to peak performance as quickly as possible, without the long-windedness of a full massage. ART treats minor soft tissue disorders within the:

- Myofascial Release Therapy: Myofascial release is the most rudimentary type of massage therapy — so much so, in fact, that the individual does not need outside assistance to complete it! Myofascial release describes the breaking down of tight fascia, which is the fibrous layer of connective tissue above the muscle and under the skin. Fascia is what allows our body to move and hold different bodily positions, and when we feel surface-level muscle tightness, it is generally the fascia that is bunched and not the muscle underneath.

 

- Acupressure / Acupuncture: Acupressure, or acupuncture, is a form of trigger point massage therapy that utilizes needles. It was originally developed as a facet of ancient Chinese medicine, and is used most commonly for pain relief. However, many consider acupuncture a pseudoscience because its methods are not based in scientific fact.
