SOFT TISSUE TECHNIQUES
This one day course will teach you the incredible benefits of Soft Tissue Techniques and both effective passive and Isometric stretching. The course will cover the background and application of these techniques enabling you to incorporate them into your treatments as well as advise clients on safe application in-between treatments.
Soft Tissue Release, Passive and Isometric Stretching are powerful tools and an essential part of massage therapy if underlying muscular tension and restricted movement is encountered and not relieved by other techniques. These techniques, correctly applied , can provide exceptional results in the rehabilitation of chronic pain conditions.
