- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: A Comprehensive Guide for Massage Therapists 1About the Course:
This course provides a comprehensive overview of carpal tunnel syndrome for massage therapists. This overview allows the reader to gain greater knowledge of anatomy, perspectives on how carpal tunnel syndrome affects individuals, as well as specific bodywork methods to alleviate classic symptoms of the condition.
- Corrective Exercise: Optimize the Nervous System for Complete Functional Restoration 3
About the Course
The Central Nervous System (CNS) is our communication network, one that can change and adapt at any age, and it is imperative to address impairments, lifestyle, and somatosensory factors for optimal neural reprogramming. We need to reprogram the CNS for complete functional restoration, optimal performance, and most importantly, injury prevention. The brain’s control center is dependent on the proper input. When dysfunction exists, the CNS receives poor proprioceptive input and accesses inefficient information. By addressing the dysfunctional movement at their root in the motor control center, where the patterns are stored, we can truly enhance motor learning and optimize client outcomes. Furthermore, a scientific and systematic approach to retraining the nervous system encompassing appropriate corrective strategies and sound movement-based training will contribute to fast and effective changes in motor control. This course discusses corrective exercises, which are those exercises done by an individual in order to reprogram the neuromuscular system from dysfunctional, to functional movement. These exercises are used to relieve pain, rehabilitate injury, and prevent injury. Everyone has their own story and has developed their own compensations over time, which is why corrective exercise is individualized.

- Ethics for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork 3About the Course
This course emphasizes the principles and standards of ethical practice for massage therapy and bodywork, and ethical issues that impact the professional in daily practice.

The components of informed consent, documentation and records maintenance, establishing boundaries, and collaboration with supervisors and colleagues for integrated healthcare, are detailed based on ethical standards of best practice.
- NeuroFascial Patterning: Assessing Movement 4
About the Course
Most conditions that lead to musculoskeletal pain tend to be overuse syndromes. These overuse syndromes can be frustrating to both the patient and clinician. Many of these overuse syndromes develop because of poor and compensatory movement patterns.
This course instructs 5 movement screens assessing the neuromyofascial network to identify compensatory patterns and areas of altered joint mechanics. Once the area of dysfunction has been identified, joint specific evaluation techniques are introduced to determine tissue specific impairments designed to guide future treatment.
This course is a video, on-demand course.
This course is approved by the Florida Board of Massage Therapy as a hands-on credit, relevant to and focused on massage therapy techniques, skills and protocols.
- Recognizing Headaches 1About the Course
